A clever, yet simple, poster by UK-based designer Abbas Mushtaq. Yep, there really are two sides to every story.
After I came across the knitting pattern for these “Fightin’ Words” fingerless gloves by Annie Watts, I’ve decided that I should really learn how to knit. Seriously, how fun are these? Spring has sprung here in NYC, so it’s not exactly mitten weather, but still, I think I need to make a pair of these.

Ok so I love minimalism and I love Legos. Faithful readers of CMYBacon have probably figured that out by now. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’m in love with this new ad campaign for Lego created by Jung von Matt. Using very few bricks, they were able to recreate minimalist versions of characters from popular cartoons like The Simpsons, South Park and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Seriously, how cool is that?!
I recently came across the portfolio of Lan Truong and instantly fell in love with her simple, linear style. I’m no longer in an art director role, but if I were, I would definitely seek this budding illustrator out for my next project. Check out more of Lan’s work on her website.
I came across this stuffed whale made of old denim jeans by Mevrouw Walvis and I couldn’t help but fall in love with it. She actually wrote a tutorial on how you can make you very own denim whale! I should note, however, that the tutorial is in Finnish, but Google Translate does a pretty good job at turning it into English, so check it out!
