happy friday!

lazy cat At the risk of sounding blasphemous in a blogosphere where cat ladies seem to rule, I'm pretty indifferent about the little meowsters. BUT, I couldn't resist taking a photo of this lazy one. This little dude knows how to live and I think I'm going to try to follow his lead this weekend...especially if today's thunderstorm is any indication of what's ahead.

I'm sure that this weather will feel normal at some point but for now I feel like I'm getting the lucky excuse to stay inside cuddled up all day. I mean, we only get like 5 of those weekends per year in LA!

Maybe I'll go out to buy some rain boots, or Wellies, but I definitely wouldn't mind spending more time playing around on Photoshop and Illustrator. If you haven't noticed by my random burst of graphics on some posts, I'm kind of a graphic designer wannabe. So please humor (and possibly forgive) me while I experiment and learn the ways.

Have a wonderful weekend and remember, do as the kitty does!

Here are this week's three rad links:

• Fancy fashion illustrations are now on sale here (via Disney Roller Girl) • How Anglepoise Lamps came to be via Design Sponge (you know, those vintage swivel desk lamps...) • Warning: this video by Mike Matas may cause extreme wanderlust. He's also behind this really amazing technology for digital magazines.
