Hand-drawn type by Mary Kate McDevitt

Behold! The work of the amazing designer, illustrator and artist, Mary Kate McDevitt. This is just a small taste of her super awesome work, and she specialises in hand-drawn type, which I love.
I especially love these quotes, the first one in particular. They make me wanna go out and be alive :)

Check out more of here amazing stuff here.

Happy Friday, everyone :) 
Have an incredible weekend. Be alive.

Illustration by Fabian Ciraolo

Check out the illustrations of Fabian Ciraolo. I dig his style... It's very busy and almost kinda kitch, both in a cool way. 
Somehow the last three posts have all been somewhat starry/celestial/fantasy-ish... totally coincidental! 
And no, the last two images did not sway my judgement at all ;)

There's something captivating about this series of 3D animated gifs entitled Stellar, from photographer Ignacio Torres...

Three Trapped Tigers & The Mighty Boosh

So I came across this video the other day and was somewhat entranced by the psychedelic visuals...
It's a new music video for a band called Three Trapped Tigers, featuring Matt Berry, a.k.a Dixon Bainbridge from The Mighty Boosh (maaan, I love that show!). It's pretty long, so you don't have to watch the whole thing, but watch some of it at least :)

And this is just some Mighty Booshness - not related to the band stuff...

The band has been around for a few years and released their debut album Route One or Die in May this year. They've got a pretty unique sound that veers between genres, including electronic, classical and rock with synth beats and ambience thrown in... A very interesting and varied mix in each track, like it's telling a story. I think that's described well in the video below. Very different in style to the above video, but it's a very cool style with a captivating story. Check it out...

*Pssssssttt!!* Check out this cool Mighty Boosh game I found!

Lunchtime Adventures

The other day my Partner in Insanity and I took a stroll towards a park nearby our offices. It was the first time we'd been there, and oh what an awesome discovery it was! A pretty much full-on park vibe in the middle of the concrete jungle! I almost cried with joy. Forealzies.
There's even a large pond thing, trees, and even wildlife! Ok... so maybe there were just some pretty tame-looking ducks, but they're animals that we can hang with in the middle of the workday, so that's awesome!

They looked like they were steering their kids away from us the way people do around vagrants. Nevertheless, we were pretty stoked to see their fluffy faces :)

If you look at a patch of the big pond thing (lake? large body of water?) through your fingers, like this, you can pretend you're at the sea :D How rad!

There's something about these leaves that I really like. They're just really cool...

Amped for our next visit :)

Tea time!

Ok guys, this is my new favourite thing that makes me super happy: Cranberry and Sanguinello Orange Tea! YUMZERZZ! Just look at this scrumptious-looking picture of fruity deliciousness Fantastic!

Also kinda love this little bit of Britness on it... Her Majesty and I are drinking the same tea! :D
Haha, as if.

 While I'm at it, here's some crockery porn...

There's so many other yummy flavours, can't wait to try them!
Ok that's all.

Check out these amazeballz gifts I got! :D

My amazing long-time friend, who moved over to the UK many years ago, recently sent me this fanfreakintastic package! What makes it more amazing is that 3 of the things on here were in a post I did ages ago called Stuff you could buy me, if you want. Now I know that sounds just a bit too coincidental to have happened by chance, but I know she's not an avid reader of my blog (which is ok coz she's special) and she also completely denies having seen that post and she ain't no liar. So how freakin uncanny is that! Pretty damn uncanny, yes.

The other thing that makes this so awesome is that I hardly ever get gifts, almost never, in fact. No, not even for my birthday. And if I do get given something, it's usually something I don't really like much (but it's the thought that counts so it does make me happy anyway :). So basically, it is incredibly seldom that I (a) get a gift, and (b) actually LOVE the gift.

I am so freakin stoked, can you tell?! I probably looked a lot like this while opening it...

Or at least, that's how I felt inside, while going through an 80's montage in my head of all our good times together in the past to the soundtrack of With a Little Help from my Friends and That's What Friends Are For. She is the best at putting together the most awesome packages with lots of little things that make up one big package of pure awesome!

So I'd like to say a huge Thank You For Being Awesome to my friend, Kel, who has been the most amazing friend, always, even though we're so far apart and sometimes lose contact for a while when life gets hectic. She's always been around for me through some really tough times, without any judgement, no matter what. 
That's what real friends are like :) I'm so hugely grateful that I have her.

Heard something yesterday that reminded me of this doodle I did a few years ago...
The quote is from Chuck Palahniuk's book, Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Casey.

Door Knobs of Delight

I found these gorgeous door handles at a market several months ago, aren't they just beautiful?! I remember my gran having little handles like this on her bedroom furniture when I was little, but I think those might have been painted wood. They were so pretty, I loved them.
The crochet doily is from a second hand charity market, love that too! :D Gotta start crocheting again.

And then this happened... :)
