The week's find is an illustration for Graphic USA, a book that's an alternative travel guide for American cities. Illustration by Dan Blackman about Chicago. See the rest of the illustrations in this series here.
[ Note: Just realized I posted a Friday find on a Wednesday. Ha. My work week and schedule has been all crazy because of the Thanksgiving holiday. ]

John & John is a range of hand cooked potato crisps made in Britain and exported to Germany. They have the coolest potato chip packaging I have seen. And though I can think of a couple of ways I would improve them (the veggie illustration for one), I can appreciate the unique and fresh approach that was taken in designing them. I haven't been able to find the studio who did do the design, so if you know, please fill me in. See images of the full line here.

Neighborhood Studio just updated their online portfolio with so much amazing work. One of my favorite projects of theirs are these apparel designs created for Australian custom motorcyle company, Deus Ex Machina. I wish they came in my size.

A few things on the wishlist at the moment: a tiny brass drop necklace with just a hint of color, a pretty red-orange brocade dress (with amazing, big buttons on the back!), a legendary camera, and homemade comfort food.

I'm so in love with Lab Partners' latest project, California Gold, a series of screen-printed posters depicting California’s natural wonders. They're currently being printed (using metallic ink!) and will be available in their upcoming shop launch. The big horn sheep is my favorite but I kind of want them all.

These wool cases by The Good Flock are a nice-looking way to keep your MacBook Pro safe. The Portland based company also makes bags, wallets, and cases for the iPad, iPhone, MacBook Air, and more. All of their products are handcrafted in the USA using virgin Pendleton wool, tagua nut and vegetable tanned leather.

Stone & Honey's spring collection was full of geometric shapes, so it's no surprise that I loved it all. I own two of the pieces shown above (the ring and necklace) and they just about go with everything possible. Stone & Honey are also featured on Fab for up to 35% off retail through mid-day tomorrow, so get it while you can!
