Gems are something I am a little obsessed with. I'm currently doing an illustration for a poster with rocks and minerals and their varied shapes and textures. So when I stumbled upon this pattern by Ooli Mos, it rekindled my love for gems all over again.

I came across the website of Creme Cycles last week and have fallen 100% in love with their fixed-gear track bike (called Vinyl, shown above). This bike is just downright pretty. It's so minimal and clean, exactly what I would want a bike to look like. Road bikes are utilitarian and practical, but are often covered in excess branding. The thing I love about fixed and single speed bikes is how aesthetically simple and polished they are. No frills. So yeah, I've concluded that I need this bike in addition to the road bike I already own. I want it like no other.

May is national bike month, so I thought I would post something bike related every week until the end of the month, starting with this. Sweden based Bike By Me makes these single speed and fixed gear bikes that are so clean and simple. I love how easily they allow you to customize the look of your bike.

I have an unhealthy obsession with screenprinted gig posters. I buy too many of them and don't have enough walls to put them on. These posters by Nerl Says (John Knoerl) make me want to add another one (or two) to my collection.
At work, I've been using desktop wallpapers by Michael Cina for a year now (this and this, from The Fox is Black) and I don't know why it took me so long to actually look this guy's art up. His work is gorgeous and just pleasing to look at.

If you're familiar with Architecture in Helsinki's previous stuff, then their latest release, Moment Bends, will seem like a bit of a reinvention of their sound, but for the better. I remember listening to them back in college and I think it's safe to say they have grown up. Their new album is more refined, polished and overall, pretty infectious. Notable songs: Desert Island, Escapee, Contact High, W.O.W., B4 3D.
I can't even begin to describe how awesome this music video for Danger Beach's song Apache is. The video was directed by Ned Wenlock and the character animation was done by Rodney Selby. The feel, technique, colors... just perfect. Danger Beach's album Milky Way is available to download here.
