It was pure joy to have our Moderne Wood Animal sculptures included in Monocle Magazine's October issue! We love this magazine's fearless enthusiasm for hunting down and taking the pulse of the creative communities and global issues that effect us all and how, in a quick-scan era, they unashamedly slow down to examine the people and topics they cover in depth. A refreshing and enormously influential publication that will keep you informed, entertained and on top of your game!

This summer has blown by in a whirl of new projects we have been working on for Uusi as well as for some new companies we are excited to be creating products for! We can't wait to share all of them with you in the weeks ahead, but want to start out with a look at some of the artwork we created for our latest Uusi deck, Blueblood Redux. Shown above are the new animals created for the Ace of Hearts and Ace of Diamonds. All the artwork was created using color pencil, ink and soft pastel and we think the combination of these mediums helps to give Blueblood Redux it's signature, other-worldly look! You can check out more of the deck that is currently funding on Kickstarter right here: Blueblood Redux

It was so much fun to see the wonderful, Great Lake featured on The Selby recently! Aside from having made some of the best pizza we have ever tasted in Chicago, Nick Lessin's and Lydia Esparza (the owners of Great Lake), enjoyed working with other artist's and designers to create a unique and always changing environment for their window. For The Selby shoot, our colorful, over-sized cards based on our Loteria prints, brought a punch of color and a playful spirit to the seriously delicious dining experience within.
