"How about something layered, because of all the vocal and instrument layering in the music?" From there we worked together to come up with this deep, colorful, and multi-flavored lasagna version of a timpano.

How to do a faux bob Sponsored Holy hot rollers! I’ve been poking around our Toronto LG Fashion Week Flickr feed—which you may both have a gander at as well as use on your own site—and discovered the most gorgeous, glamorous faux bob hairstyles at the Rachel Mara show last night. And THEN, in what can only be called beauty synchronicity, I realized that Freida Pinto and Hilary Swank both wore a version of this look at the London Film Festival on Monday night.

As we mentioned in our previous article (see Brilliant Minimalist Print Ads (PART I)) Leonardo da Vinci once said: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”, and architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe adopted the motto “Less is more”.

I decided they were charging way too much for something that could be made with t-shirt scraps. And that means free. So there you have it.
