East London shop shutters painted by Eine
I’ve been invited to give a PechaKucha style presentation next week and in the five minute slot I’ll be running through the Type Worship’s journey and some of my work. I’ll be covering some of the designers and artists that have inspired me and have been collecting together some materials.
I came across this brilliant photograph capturing Ben Flynn’s work (aka Eine), which was one of the original things that got me started.

Love his work.
AH! One of my favorite bookshops in the world. This was just down the road from where I lived when I studied abroad. Fantastic little place, whenever I visit London I make a special effort to stop in here and buy something new to read.
I was lucky enough to be studying in London when Carsten Höller’s “Test Site” (a.k.a. the slides) was on exhibit as part of the Unilver Series at the Tate Modern. It was one of the most fun and interactive exhibits I’d seen and experienced in a museum, and sort of changed what I perceived as “art”. I was a little bummed to have just missed being in New York for his exhibition at the New Museum. If any of you New Yorkers are reading this, go check it out and report back to me!
