Sneak Peek: Johnny Cupcakes LA shoppe

26 Jul

My boy Dave O hipped me to Johnny Cupcakes a while back, amused (as was I) with the bakery-themed store on Boston’s famed Newbury Street. O yeah, and they also design some pretty fresh shtuff. Well Johnny Cupcakes is officially moving to the West Coast soon, opening a new store on Melrose Ave. in LA on August 2 (big party, we hear). Here Johnny gives us an update on the construction of the Los Angeles shoppe.  Really like the cool vintage feel going on here.  Check it out and let me know what you think.

Thanks to Bobby S over at the Kitsune Noir blog, desktops around the world will now be more stylish as they launch The Desktop Wallpaper Project today.  Each Wednesday you can mosey on over the +KN blog and pick up a new wallpaper from one of the most talented artists practicing today — all free.  Today’s contributions come from Tim Biskup, Mcbess and IMAKETHINGS.  I’ve been waiting for an idea like this to come along for some time.  Each wallpaper is available in a variety of sizes, including custom versions for iPhones and PSPs. Enjoy!
