Thug Love, Popote card

Here's the latest Popote card. Junia and I have always loved graffiti and the art style that it is. Neither of us are good at writing so we got our friend Franky to write a few things for us. Here's the first of hopefully many graffiti inspired ideas for Popote.

New Popote card

Since I'm spending most of my free creative time thinking about Popote, I figure I'll post our new stuff on here since we don't have a blog for the co. yet. Things are definitely going slower than I'd hoped but I guess that's to be expected when the medium we're using is readily available when I want it to be. One day Junia and I will get our own machine and we can get really crazy.

I've been wanting to do some designs celebrating my love for the 8-bit era. We decided to go with a "love" card because nothing is cooler than 8-bit romance! These cards are a little tough to put together since it's two colors that are actually registered. We put down the brown layer then the blue layer carefully on top.
If you dig it, we're selling them for $4.50 at our Etsy shop!

I got a quick minute to post. I just had a few minutes to eat some lunch and decided to catch up on my La Blogotheque podcasts. I hadn't watched any in a few weeks and these two made me forget I was eating or sitting or moving or being.  I hadn't heard much Lykke Li stuff but I'm totally sold after seeing this. Bon Iver is almost to the point of getting played out but these Bon Iver Take Away Shows re-newed that spark that was first there months ago.

Ironically, I'm about to leave my apartment and head straight to where the Lykke Li video was shot! I need to register Popote as our business name at City Hall.

So if you use iTunes, subscribing to the La Blogotheque podcasts is a good move. Especially when you have a newer generation iPod nano and are in between books and have nothing to do on the bus.
