Nothing long today. Just some photos of vinyl that I’ve taken and posted to Instagram over the years. I believe most of these are from December of 2015 until today. Loads of other vinyl photos I’ve taken are stored somewhere else right now so these were the ones I chose. As you can see there are lots of Metal releases. I love me some Heavy Metal… and Bone Thugs. Can’t forget the Bone Thugs.
If you want to keep up with my comings and goings with vinyl, motorcycle journeys, graphic design, photography and general life shit; follow me on Instagram @eblanken.
I stumbled across this logo last week and I just had to share it. It is (from what I can gather) the overarching logo for The University of Tennessee. It’s not the logo you normally think of when somebody mentions UT or the Volunteers (Vols) athletic teams, but to me this has so much more going for it. Do I want this to appear on a jersey or helmet? No, not at all. But would I be pumped if I saw this around campus? Hell yes I would!
Now, I also REALLY like the “T” logo that everyone knows. It’s great. Timeless, classic, etc. This one just has a bit more modernity to it and that is not a bad thing. I had never seen it before last week and now I can’t get enough of it. I dig it. So should you. Now you can.
I’m sitting at work and trying to create a logo for a school of Science & Health. This one has me stuck in a huge rut. I’m working on icons and elements to utilize and I happened to create a quick/simple/neat little graphic of some cells splitting. It doesn’t work for what I need but I found it nice enough to use play with and give my brain a break.
It’s got a bit of a scan-torn look going on. Takes me back to college and all the crappy tests we had to endure. It also screams America with all of that red, white and blue. GO USA!!!
We are super busy with our upcoming move and I am still trying to get through the giant box of records I bought a while back but that doesn’t stop me from buying new tunes as well. Above is the artwork for 3 albums I had to plunk down some money for. Hit the jump to check out some details about the albums, hear some music from each release and find links to purchase these fine tunes.
I’m looking forward to eating healthy, getting back on track, and for some reason that means I’m craving salads. I see photos of them in magazines: fancy and piled high, totally posed, and I actually pause to stare at them.
They look so fresh and crisp and after piles of saltines and heaps of oatmeal a refreshingly bright plate of greens smothered in toppings is making me salivate.
I’m craving other things: summer rolls, corn salsa, corn chips, pizza, grilled pizza, grilled everything — but for some reason raw vegetables are calling my name the loudest right now.
