As an avid collector of random crap I’m drawn to this set of beautiful colour studies by New York-based artist Sara Cwynar.

Circus Clown Bikes
These old clown bikes are too cute, half tempted to buy a couple for my niece & nephew, or maybe I need an impractically small and rusty old bike..? Probably not, but yours for $385 from Modern 50.

Drawings on paper towels
Nice take on toilet graffiti by doodler Marc Johns, check out all his paper towel drawings here. Must remember my felt tip next time I’m dropping the kids off.
re:vision camera lens bracelets
This is an awesome idea, recycling old camera lens components into these one off retro bracelets. Brain child of Aussie Photography Craig Arnold (can’t find his site), but they are for sale in the UK Cost £100 – £150, available from Oye Modern. Not many left, but be sure to check all the sold one’s too »

I‘ve seen a shit load of clock variations over the years, been this digital clock display made out of rotating analogue clocks wins hands down. Right I’m off to build one!

Stumbled across the portfolio of Tofdru on Cargo today, it made my day, no shit made my year, this guys work is awesome. I didn’t think I’d see the day when a cut & paste collage artist would top Terry Gilliam, but I think he has. Can’t find out much about him other than he must own crap load of vintage magazines, I suspect he’s French, but his info page is in Japanese?
Update: Yeah he’s probably French, my Japanese friend says he must have used translation software, grammer is all over the place and it doesn’t make sense…
Also here’s his Flickr.
Piet Hein Eek – Scrapwood
I‘m really taken by Piet Hein Eek’s scrapwood collection of furniture, all the excuse I need to start collecting old bits of wood ;) The rest of this guys stuff is all top notch and this shed is two times awesome.

Loads of interesting stuff to buy at ReForm school. I especially like all the re-purposed stuff like the Recycled Street Sign Platter, Billbird House, Electrolux hoover racecar (not cheap!) and the Skateboard Clutch Purses pictured.
Well our house is just about back to normal now that the last of the party has been moped up and cleared away. I did a really shit job of taking pics, only got a few crappy camera phone shots before and after… Hopefully someone might send me some better ones to post later.
Above is my box of wine, Sachi’s keytar & Nicky’s box of Monster & Munch. I think Ahra’s reporter from ‘Harro’ magazine was probably best costume, had working zoom lense on camera and a spring loaded shutter button!
Update: Ah, Yeevon’s took some much better pictures, here’s a selection. I’ve uploaded all of them to my Flickr.
Love these Fox Scarfs made of salvaged wool from LU FLUX. (Flash site so can’t deep link… Look under Wares > Accessories) Bit pricey at £120 though :(
