I’m starting this week off with a bang, and it comes in the form of a screenprint! This hand-pulled Nitro in Action print features “one hell of a brew” and fantastic (as always) hand-lettering and illustration by Mary Kate McDevitt. I can think of a few beer connoisseurs in my life who would love to receive this as a gift.

I spotted Papier Tigre’s The Pli Postal writing pad over on FPO recently and just had to share their super cool concept with you. The Pli Postal contains 18 different, ready to fold patterns that transform into self-mailers that you can send to friends and family. The writing pad comes with a folding guide, too, so you’ll know exactly how to make these pretty little mailers.
Papier Tigre has many, many modern, patterned paper goodies, including the sleek notebooks below, so be sure to head over and check out their shop. They ship internationally, so you’ll be able to have their paper goodies delivered to you no matter where you’re at in the world.

I love me some anthropomorphic food, so I’m getting a kick out of the fun art prints in Teo Zirinis’ shop . I mean, how could I not be completely enamored with congo-ing breakfast food, ninja toast, and zombie broccoli?
Check out all of Teo’s cutie patootie illlustrations right here, and have a peek below:
