While I was in Paris last week I saw Mike Perry’s new book “Over & Over” on the shelf of a hip clothing and book store. I was pretty psyched actually. I have been a fan of his work for a while way back before his books. I was in need of some dope hand drawn type and Mike was nice enough to lend me some for a project. Well anyways, the book is pretty much awesome so I’d drop by his site and shell out some lunch money. It showcases hand drawn patterns by artists and designers from around the globe including my buddies at I-Manifest. Maybe I should get Mike to put me in his next book. Hey Mike, I draw too!

Here is a sneak peak at me, Tom, and David’s contribution to Bran’s Psst! Pass it On 3 series. It’s a basic tale of fear, racism, and hate. The style is geometry meets film noir. Look for more in October when the entire series including many other awesomely awesome talents in the motion biz release them unto the world.
Si Scott does what he does consistently and well. He makes beautiful flourishy type by hand. Now you can have his amazing talents on your next deck of cards. This deck by Smoke and Mirrors are beautifully crafted and look fully functional as a real playing deck, not just for show. Pick up a deck here at Theory 11, although I don’t see a price on them.
So I have had quite a few requests for my old mixes to be uploaded. The unfortunate news is that I am out of space on my server with Media Temple and since I am uploading these out of the kindness of my heart I don’t see that happening as of now. I get really really cheap hosting with them now, it’s practically free, but to upgrade would mean me having to spend quite a bit more each month. If anyone has any solution or if I can get enough people who would donate to the cause (which I know may be illegal ) to help me cover the extra cost. The best I can do now is to say, check my blog out frequently and get the mixes while they are fresh out of the box. Thanks for all of the support and kind words though. I really do appreciate it!

I wanted to mix up the mix posts by offering this first of three essential N.E.R.D. mixes. I have been an N.E.R.D. fan for a while and found their music to be perfect for summer parties and bbq’s. Bump in your Maserati or Villa in Saint Tropez.
