HOODED: a film by Myles Loftin
Some photos from our recent visit to the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
This film is so beautiful and a reminder of what's missing from the depiction black boys and black men in media.
Here & There in Austin
Asterios Polyp was artist David Mazzucchelli ’s (Daredevil “Born Again,” Batman “Year One”) near decade in the making, masterful return to comics.
Some photos from a recent family vacation to Austin, Texas including a few favorite spots:
Hopkins & Underwood’s New Arithmetic
My mom, daughter and I visited the Whitney Plantation in Wallace, Louisiana on the morning of June 30th.
Mental Arithmetic, republished by The Macmillan Company in 1913 (first published in 1908), was gifted to my mom 30 years ago by a fellow co-worker and educator.
TEXTILES by Christopher Payne
Stunning typography in this collection of violin and guitar string packages. We found these and other miscellaneous parts accompanying an antique violin that belonged to Paul’s uncle.
Christopher Payne’s Textiles photo series is breathtaking, incredible and unforgettable.
With Halloween right around the corner, I figured it would be fitting to share this beautiful edition of ¿Mamá?.
Johnson Space Center
I have a lot of notebooks. Most of them I refuse to write in.
A New Side Hustle
We took the kids to Space Center Houston this week and toured a few areas at Johnson Space Center, my dad’s old stomping grounds.
What started as a simple notebook project has slowly developed into a series of small-run notebook editions, a web-based guide and a future app for the creative community.
Metamorphica, Ephemera & Miscellanea and Matter Matters are three of many brilliant bodies of work from Studio Fludd—”a multidisciplinary collective, alchemy inspired, active since 2008″.
The Boy Who Painted Wallpaper
A short film from the fantastic mag/site Victory Journal on Brazil’s culture of “Soltar Pipas.”
Geologic Atlas of the Moon
The Boy Who Painted Wallpaper, written and illustrated by Mark Rubin, is my favorite children’s books.
Butterick's Practical Typography
The maps were published by the U.S. Geological Survey and are included in the image library at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston.
Bright Red Film
Butterick’s Practical Typography, is an excellent resource for anyone that communicates with words in print or on the web.

Vasya Kolotusha‘s LIGHTS
Peter Aschwanden was a 1960’s hippie beatnik artist that made a living illustrating technical manuals.
Vasya Kolotusha‘s digital artwork is magnificent.
