Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone is having a delightfully spooky Halloween! Although I usually have a hard time settling on an idea for my costume, I love keeping an eye out for super creative or funny costumes. Friend and former colleague, Dan Liuzzi, easily took the cake last year for most creative/effective/funny Halloween costume. Check out the 8 bit version of himself! Truly amazing.

p.s. Dan is also an amazing artist, so while you're at his blog, take a look at the other awesome stuff he makes!

Music Painting

This is a great video to start the new week. Watch Alice Ninni animate the serene song “Lacrime de Giulietta” by Italian composer Matteo Negrin.

Angie Wang, Illustratress

I came across Angie Wang's booth at the Alternative Press Expo and was immediately in love. I am currently trying to figure out where to hang this print, entitled 'Secret Jungle', in my apartment. The movement and colors are fantastic.

Animal Kingdom playing cards- Back by popular demand!

Get 'em here!

Thank you, Steve

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.

About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.

Maybe they have to be crazy.

How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?

We make tools for these kinds of people.

While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

APE and Kate Beaton!

Happy Monday everyone! I just had an overwhelming experience at this weekend's APE (Alternative Press Expo) in San Francisco. I was totally unprepared for such a huge amount of talent, all in one place. For my next few posts, I'm going to profile some artists from the expo that are simply amazing.

To start off, I'd like to introduce the hilariously clever Kate Beaton. Her comics are delightfully smart, absurd, and laugh out loud funny. It's so refreshing to see comics that incorporate history in a fun way. I would highly recommend picking up her book, 'Hark! A Vagrant'. 

Check out her comics at

Cutest Food

There are many interests the four of us here at Nimbus share, and one of those things is food. More specifically, cute food.
I've been drooling over this blog I stumbled upon the other day called Cutest Food. Everything is so cute, I could just gobble it up.
