Daniel Edlen: Record Portraits

Daniel Edlen creates portraits of musicians on their original vinyl records. The hand painted originals are framed in a black shiny aluminum LP frame with the sleeve placed behind the painted record. The one-of-a-kind pieces are available directly from Daniel for around $175 USD plus shipping. Many of the pieces have been sold, but Daniel also takes commissions.

Provided that he can find the record for you with (currently) a one month lead time and payment up front, he can easily set up a "Buy it Now" button for you.

Featured above (left to right):
*Jerry Garcia
*Jimi Hendrix
*Miles Davis

You can see videos of his process on his You Tube channel here and his blog here.

All I Want to Be

All I want to be is someone who makes new things and thinks about them.
Haiku by John Maeda. Sign/Photo by Public Design Center (flickr). Clifton Burt has this to say about the piece:
...John Maeda wrote that haiku one day back in the spring of 2007. It was just a quick post he made but it really stuck with me. It seemed to pop into my mind a lot. Then, in the spring of 2008, we pulled the remnants of an old arrow sign from a dumpster. A haiku is about the most that could fit on there, so we set out to make that one happen. We were missing quite a few of the letters we needed. A friend told us that a out that a lady in town who sells vintage clothing from a dilapidated old building had boxes of those letters stashed away deep in her den of crazy. We went there to buy them and she was intent on not selling too many G's or N's or M's or I's. She's like that. I talked her into selling us all of the letters we needed...

Happy Summer

It is officially summer and I am jonezing for a big vacation. Here are some photos I took a few years ago while in Fiji with my husband. I have got to find a way to take a trip like that again.
