The new Brooklyn Fare isn’t too far from the new digs in Brooklyn Heights, and I’ve been looking forward to checking it out for a while now. And even better — they’ve got these really silly coffee cups that made me laugh.
Check out this awesome project from Meg Wachter—it’s a bunch of photos of people’s expressions when different types of food get dumped on their heads. This photo is a girl getting covered in morning cereal and milk. The whole thing reminds me of when people used to get slimed on old-school Nickelodeon shows.
Check out these beautiful “foodscapes” by London-based artist, Carl Warner (link thanks to YumSugar). Everything is made out of food – the trees, the hot-air balloons, everything! The pic below even has a prosciutto river!! (is he reading my dreams?) When you go to his site, click on Fotographics and then the second briefcase to see all the pieces.
This tea cup is super fun—even though I realize it’d be annoying/impossible to keep putting the cup down at the exact right spot to match the date. (via SwissMiss) Still, I like the idea. Click here to check out a few more cool tea cups that were designed for the The Creation Gallery in Ginza. I like this “T” cup too, below. Go ahead J… name all the fonts!
I really love when magazines use fun, quirky handwriting in their designs. J and I went to a talk/book-signing for the creator of a new book called Hand Job, all about handwritten fonts and designs, and the entire book is full of stuff I want to steal. Hand drawings give such a personal element that you can’t find with proper fonts, and there’s this fun feeling that you’ll never see it done the same way twice. But anyway, to the point—I want to make my own cabinet graffiti like this one that I saw on Apartment Therapy Kitchen (it was originally on Cookie). I think it’d be fun to get recipes from all the important people in your life and then stick them up on the inside of your cabinets with the help of Wonderful Graffiti. Or I could do a breakfast cabinet, a lunch one, and a dinner. Fun!
