The Who, 1976

Fillmore East 2

So the kids can be alright: Roger Daltrey's Fillmore East jersey from The Who's 1976 US Tour, on Ebay UK to benefit the Teenage Cancer Trust. (click here)

I love that he still has it.

The garage as playroom: during the day the car is in use; when the kids go to bed it comes in for the night.

Arkitip 012, 013 by Geoff McFetridge and Mark Gonzales

arkitip012013

From Linda's days as a designer in NYC, 2002, found beneath a stack of Grand Royal magazines in a drawer we never open. The Geoff McFetridge issue came with some iron-ons and a couple of pins, and the Mark Gonzales issue came with a mobile. The last post about Portfolio magazine running their 1950 issue with a young Irving Penn and younger Richard Avedon reminded me of these, as I'm sure years from now these two will be icons. (Maybe not quite of the Penn/Avedon echelon, but you get the idea.)

Among the tons of awesome things the two have done, here are a couple of favorites:
 Geoff McFetridge's "Things I make for my daughter", from Apartamento Magazine #4 (click for the Sight Unseen article)

and Mark Gonzales skating around a German museum, to the tune of Coconut Records' "West Coast":



... also a more recent favorite of McFetridge's is his in-store display walls for Target- check out the wonderful Al Jaffee-esque illustrations from his sketchbook:

Nicely matched to last year's project, the Van boat:

Blow-Ups

"Huge blow-ups side-by-side become one immense photo mural."
Another favorite photo/inspiring idea from Terence Conran's The House Book (1974).
Also I'm convinced this is a young Simon de Pury.
