She & Him

I'm joining a give-away at Latanie's! Check her blog by the way, she's a graphic designer too.

Today I got the news that I passed this schoolyear succesfully. It was a relief to know that, and so I bought myself some presents. Not knowing what I wanted to get to treat myself, I came across the record store and found this!

She & Him is a band with Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. They make the most wonderful music and so I couldn't resist to buy this beautiful record. I'm in love with the graphic design and so I took some pictures from the details. It has a lot of pretty fonts and textures, colors and illustrations! I can't find one thing that's not pretty.

Ever since I saw 500 Days of Summer I got to know Zooey Deschanel's music because she's made her own version of the song 'Please Please Please, Let Me Get What I Want' by The Smiths, which is an awesome song and both versions are on the soundtrack album of the movie.

For people who don't know their music, here's a happy song!

I also got Elliott Smith's debute album Roman Candle, I thought this couldn't miss from my record collection because his voice really makes me calm, it's a pity he'll never sing again.

The quick brown fox

I just finished an experimental font for school. I've been working on it for approx. 3 days and in total there's something like 20 fonts all combined into one, the concept is about reproduction but I don't feel like explaining it all, it needs some visual presentation for my big jury later this year so hopefully that'll be more clear. I do hope you like it, feedback is always welcome..

In other news, I'd like to participate in the giveaway from Rood Met Witte Stipjes. This is a lovely blog/fabrics shop and I'd love to win the apple fabrics the owner is giving away! Click here to go to her shop.

I started painting yesterday out of frustration about my schoolwork. Apparently, I paint better (at least faster) when I'm stressed out or supposed to be doing something else. It took much less time than usual and I'm kind of accomplished about it, yet there's a whole lot more I shouldn't feel accomplished about which still makes me feel sad.
