odds and ends

Here is just s little collection of stuff I like – it’s a hodge podge as my sweet lil mom used to say! lol


The Noun Project collects, organizes and adds to the highly recognizable symbols that form the world’s visual language, so we may share them in a fun and meaningful way.

Developed by design collective Simple.Honest.Work, the symbols from The Noun Project can be freely used in your design work and are easily placed in Illustrator.

New Moleskine Cover Art Collection

The latest collection of Moleskine notebooks feature cover arts created by actual Moleskine users.

The new Cover Art Journals were selected by Moleskine from thousands of images submitted from all over the world. The Community Cover Art Journals are available in a set of 2, measure 8.5 x 11 inches, and may be chosen in Ruled, Squared, or Plain Pages. Both journals have a stitched binding for durability, just like the very popular Cahier notebooks. The cover is a smooth finish 235 gsm heavy card stock.

My favorite notebook was illustrated by Maykel Cordeiro Nunes, a graphic designer and illustrator from Brazil.
