MY NEPHEW IS PRETTY COOL
This is his “go-to” face most of the time. I hope it remains his “go-to” forever as I find it to be quite awesome.
Also, his outfit is rather interesting. At first glance it’s simply cars and trucks on a baby onesie, nothing too surprising. But then you see the monkey with the surfboard and you’re like “what up with that?”. Either monkeys should be in the cars and trucks, or the surfboard should not have a monkey, there’s no consistency in the world they have created on the onesie!
COOL STUFF IN JAPAN 12 - “KING OF FLAGS”
From a purely graphic design standpoint I’d say that Japan’s flag is the champion of flags.
However, if you have a crazy busy flag like we do in America you can invent awesome fictional characters based solely on the flag. I’m talking to you Uncle Sam. And you too Captain America. If there was no flag neither of you would exist!
PEOPLE OF JAPAN 09 - “MISTER GREEN PUFFY COAT”
He eats and sleeps just like the rest of us, but when it comes to puffy coats, well, that’s a different story.
Also, I think the New York Subway System could really benefit from the gymnastic style ring system that Japan has so successfully implemented. It’s great, you don’t need to reach as high and if the Subway isn’t crowded you get to practice your moves.
COOL STUFF IN JAPAN 03 - “¿Can I get un taxi por favor?”
For some bizarre reason I spent most of my time in Japan speaking broken Spanish. Not quite sure why, but that was my go to language. The human brain does funny things sometimes. Or at least mine does.
That being said, it was not very efficient, seeing as most folks seemed to know at least a bit of English, but no one seemed to know any Spanish.
So a few days ago I started an iPhone tumblr where I’ve just been taking pictures of stuff that catches my eye and throwing it on tumblr. Anyway, last night I took the picture of the antlers and then this morning I took the picture of the statue in front of a crumbling manger scene (very sad, by the way). Anyway, they kind of look alike, right? Stuff like this that randomly happens BLOWS MY MIND!!!
