what is approximate traveling? In order to travel approximately, I made use of any source of information I could find online, relying especially on Google Street View, photo databases (Panoramio, Picasa, Flickr), review sites (Yelp, TripAdvisor, CitySearch, Insider Pages), and virtual tours of monuments, restaurants, hotels, etc. I transported myself into one place after another, both by writing a travel narrative and by superimposing myself onto photos I found online. The people I “met” were disgruntled hotel reviewers, restaurant ravers, and anyone who took the time to upload their story in one form or another to a site like Google Maps.

Six things that illustrate the past fifty years in design. British Airways flight attendents, Corn Flakes boxes, telephones, the Queens hat, police cars and covers from George Orwell’s 1984.

whitelines is a new writing paper that uses a stark white line over a light grey field rather than the usual dark line on white field. The reduced contrast inherent to the paper allows your drawings or writing to stand out cleanly, some examples. They come in a bunch of ISO paper sizes and bindings and are available lined or gridded. The books and pads also look pretty great. I ordered some A5 wire-bound gridded sketch books and look forward to trying them out in a few days.
