Hobbies

I remember several years ago it was my first day at a particular freelance gig and one of the animators asked me what I do for fun. Probably because it had been ages since I had any free time I froze up completely, not being able to think of anything cool or remotely interesting to share. I don’t even remember what abomination I eventually stammered, but at least today I can present to you one of my many hobbies:

Bookbinding!

And bookbinding + up-cycling = a very happy d*ro =)

Oldies But Goodies II

To continue my stockpile of whoah mommas from the past few months, a nice info-graphic of American corporate logos sorted by colors (via Digg I believe, and appears to be scanned from Wired):

Fab Fri – 3rd edition

Whoah. Time passes so quickly! I’ve been busy! But here I am on another fabulous friday with another whoah momma to share!

If I had to name a hobby outside of traveling or beach activities, it would definitely be making artist books. Unfortunately, I haven’t had much time to work on or post many of my books, but I still LOVE to see what others are doing in this realm.

This week, I came across MIT’s explorations with the pop-up book, incorporating recent technology to make the book even more interactive. The beginning is relatively *snore* in terms of steps removed from current engineering feats in the pop-up realm, but I love LOVE the pressure-sensitive interactions and venus flytrap page! It’s exciting to see how the battle between print and digital interactivity is alive and well!

It’s also amusing to me to see the number of nails painted on the presenter’s hands change throughout the video, but that’s a different thing completely =P.

A big thanks to gracious, for the introduction via gizmodo link!
