Hello! Lots of rain here in Rome lately… :(
Today, I am going to my hometown for a few days, I haven’t been home for 2 months, and I really need to see some of my friends over there!
February is over, and I did it quite well on my monthly resolutions: exam passed, I made lots of things for my degree project, and worked on the illustrated book. Unfortunately, I had to skip working on my website! But I just didn’t have enough time!
Here is my love list for the week: ♥ Ethiopian dinner with S. (it was DELICIOUS!) ♥ meeting my dear friend Diletta after two long YEARS ♥ new illustrations for some Happy Easter cards, soon on Etsy! ♥ having a SECRET! ♥ my boyfriend, who is working really hard and deserves all my love! ♥ eating white pizza at half-morning ♥ dreaming of moving abroad ♥ email exchanges with the lovely Ottavia ♥ Conor Oberst obsession, at full throttle! I LOVE his new album ♥ my new faux fur, leopard print, crop jacket! I decided I need to change the button, with something BIGGER! ♥ listening to The Libertines’ albums after several years, and still singing along to all the songs ♥ Mimmo, the loveliest cat ever.
And now, here are the links I bookmarked for you during the last week!
♥ What if social media were a high school?
♥ Animals on the underground by Paul Middlewick: illustrations based on the London’s tube map. I want the one with the cat!
♥ Back to the future is a mind-blowing photographic essay by Irina Werning: a comparison between past & present through portraits.
♥ A measuring rod for visualizing the immaterial wi-fi networks in cities? These guys from Sweden made it! This video, “Immaterial”, is both fascinating and scary.
♥ If websites were books: I know this is an old thing, but some of these covers are beautiful.
♥ Miles Aldridge for Vogue Italia: does anyone know the name of this beautiful model? I love her! Also, Battles are an excellent soudtrack to this video.
♥ I need this Scrabble set: for type nerds only!
♥ These Japanese posters from the ’20s and ’30s are amazing. I love, love, love Japanese graphic design.
♥ Christopher Niemann’s Abstract City came to an end: so sad! Anyways, he’ll be writing monthly pieces for the printed version of The Sunday Magazine, and post those articles on his blog. I can’t wait! I loved that blog A LOT.
♥ Cute Plush is a small business from Chicago that sells loads of kawaii jewelry! Cuteness overload! I want all of the products they sell. All of them.
♥ Nicola Formichetti writes about the fashion credits for the Lady Gaga new video, which is, obviously, fantastic.
♥ An oversized book, that is also a bed? GREAT!
♥ The Strokes are back. Oh, yes.
