A poster of meat. What more needs to be articulated about this 18” X 24” carnivorous, educational, orgy. The 2 color screen print pops off the rich, thick 100lb Cougar Natural cover stock begging to be cooked. Alas, the tooth of the paper breaks the reverie every time. The delightful bi-product is a trip to the butcher. Hanging this meat poster in the kitchen is obvious as it doubles as a reference guide but we prefer it over our bed so our porterhouse dreams are met with ribeye mornings. Yank Marc Howell and Limey Luke Paisley have a great hand. Their other designs, and apologetic company name, seems to be most fitting for their work, current design MOST poignantly included.

Food and Christmas go hand in hand. With the current slobbering over all things edible, it’s no wonder the food ornament game has stepped up to the plate and started hitting homers. No better place to snap up one of these winners than Terrain, the Urban Outfitters folks take on outdoor stuff. This Glass Tomato Ornament is one of our favs because it’s a building block of many recipes and a beautifully simple summer fruit we rarely get to see in winter. Hanging off our tree we want to puree them up and make a red sauce for our raviolo but that would make for a disaster. Obviously, made for memories, there glass vegetable line is meant to remind us how good the real thing is and wait for summer. That’s cool, we’re asking for heirloom seed for Christmas.
Bryan Sculthorpe had us locked at last years Renegade with his 10×20 inch “stacked” series. Family Time spoke to us loud and clear. Bryan has some new illustrations this year. Pizza being our favorite. He even branched out into pins this year. Hard to say “no” to all his work but we need more wall space first.
We are huge fans of Phin and Phebes ice cream. Not such big fans of this election. WTF. It’s like Mark Burnett was put in charge of running things. Ice cream has always made everything better. Nobody knows that better than these ladies. Partnering with Madewell, they took a stand and started the Phin and Phebes Pints of Positivity campaign. Show your colors. Join the movement. Wear some schwag with pride. Ohh, and don’t really vote ice cream. Please vote for one of the primary candidates we don’t need any more skewed election drama on poll day.
In honor of the Ghostbusters reboot that opened this weekend, we bring you this hilarious design by David Staffell. Who doesn’t love the Stay Puffed finally from the original? Hear there’s a nice cameo in the reboot, which brought in $46 Million over the weekend. Love the move for a full lady cast. We’ve always been big Ghostbuster fans, sorry. Ok, back to the T-Shirt, Officially named “Something Strange, In Your Beverage…” David’s idea to put all that mascot man’s sweet goodness into a giant cup of hot chocolate makes our post winter sledding mouths water. Weird to say in the middle of a July heat wave but we can still dream.
