Step back and admire these cross stitched pieces by Evelin Kasikov (via Stylesight).

Maurice Sendak, beloved author of Where the Wild Things Are, passed away last week.  If you live near my neck of the woods, make sure to stop by the Rosenbach Museum & Library to see the Sendak collection housed there.  Also, if you haven’t yet watched it, check out Stephen Colbert’s interview with Sendak from back in January.  Here are parts one and two (via Colossal).  Simply fabulous.

These kick-a$$ National Park stamps by Valerie Jar (check out her blog Carnival for awesome sauce design inspiration!) for the new National Parks iPhone app by National Geographic (app design credits go to Rally Interactive) (via Design Work Life).  Long long ago I had “Jr. Ranger” pins from six of the parks listed below.  I want to collect them all!

Femke Agema‘s SS12 collection.  Crazy cakes or awesome sauce?  Maybe a bit of both! (via We Are Selecters)

I love these two images from Natalie Off Duty.  Definitely how I feel right now: sleepy and in need of a good stretch.

Jonathan Ogden‘s album art is so dang up my alley.  Recently, I’ve been really interested in covers, no doubt because of my own album design shizz (i.e. my monthly mixes).  (via Breanna Rose)

Ben Giles, you are a collage king! Definitely definitely check out more of his work!  Flower power!  (via Justina Blakeney)
