Tugboat Printshop: Woodblock Cuts and Prints
Tugboat Printshop is the home woodblock print studio of artists Paul Roden and Valerie Lueth. They create their prints completely by hand—art, woodblock carving, printing and all. In doing so, they hope to preserve and expand the art of woodcutting and woodblock prints. They try to keep pieces affordable but of high-quality, using only top-shelf materials. It's amazing to me how much work goes into each print and how every little detail must be precise, or the final image will flop. I'm thankful that they share their process, because, not only does it show the labor involved, but, to me, each process piece is artwork in itself, and I love seeing the prints unfold from the blocks.

51 Breathtaking Post-Apocalypse Wallpapers
Humanity has an obsession with its own destruction. From countless religions, myths, legends and doomsday predictions, humanity has always been curious about what the Earth would be like without us. Based on the Earth’s past, it almost seems inevitable that natural destruction will occur at some point, and man-made methods of destruction exist as well.
Twin One - Knife & Fork Chopstick by DesignWright for Lékué
When a Knife and Fork Get Together… I spent several minutes staring at the Twin One knife and fork companion set. It’s a nice modern design by Adrian and Jeremy Wright (omg are you guys brothers?). Minimal, appears well balanced and definitely made for durability thanks to the nylon and over moulded rubber but the “awesomist” feature is the two can connect to form a sort of spring-loaded chopstick.

How much was a loaf of Brad in 1975
To find the answer, we must first quantify the value of Brad. So how much is a human life worth? According to research by Stanford economists, a year of human life is worth about $129,000. Wolfram Alpha tells us that the average age of a person named Brad is 35 years, and that the average life expectancy for a human male (worldwide) is about 69 years. Assuming that procuring a loaf of Brad involves cutting down a Brad in his prime, we would be depriving him of 34 years of life - a value of $4,386,000.

Lofted Forest Home: Organic Curves & Natural Materials
Good things come to those who wait – particularly in a work of uniquely detailed and highly curved architecture. Nearly a decade in the making, this structure by Robert Harvey Oshatz is much like a tree house – lofted toward the top of the canopy around it – only bigger, grander, more complex and curved than most any tree house in the world. The perimeter of the structure is pushed out into the forest around it, curving in and out to create views as well as a sense of intimacy with the coniferous and deciduous tree cover. The wood and metal detailing is incredible in its variety and customization – each piece designed to fit a particular form and function.
