This drawing is not for sale, but so many other things are over on the Project Neon Kickstarter campaign. There’s only one week left (!) to get limited edition prints, posters, membership cards, and more featuring stunning photos (if I may be so bold) of New York’s great neon signs. One week from today—Monday May 30th—is not only the Kickstarter deadline, it’s also my birthday (and yes, it’s Memorial Day, too). Do you know what I want for my birthday? A successful Kickstarter campaign! So run on over and make a pledge. Thanks!

Here’s a swell little vintage transistor radio that would make me happy. My computer doesn’t want to stream radio very well these days (and the speakers always blip an chatter with interference) so a little radio would be a big improvement. Plus picnics! Plus the beach! Plus bike rides! (Can you tell I’m looking forward to summer?)
This radio costs $23, and so does this drawing!

A thousand apologies. In addition to keeping up with the veritable explosion of Project Neon activities (more news on that front soon), I’ve been on grand jury duty all week (and next.)  But I’m back here at The Fulfillment Center with a lovely molecule model kit I’ve had my eye on. The colors are not the standard ones, but as they’re so pleasing, I’ll let it slide this time. As some of you know my current day job is science related, so this would be lovely to have on my desk there. Though it would also look fabulous on my desk at home…
Bonus points if anyone can name the molecule I have attempted to draw!

Hello! Apologies for the dearth of posts lately. I’ve been under the weather, and I’ve also been busy working on launching Project Neon, a blog to document my visits to NYC neon signs and accompany the Flickr set of photos I’ve been accumulating. Have a look, and I’ll be back here with a new drawing soon.

Hello, 2011! And hello, Dymo label maker! Thanks to the lovely and talented author of Linus in Hats, I have acquired it in trade for a drawing.  I’ve finally cleaned out and labeled the jars in my pantry, hurrah.  No more buying corn starch twice or wondering what the lumpy powder in that jar in the back is. Now if the cats would just hold still…

UPDATE:  Super-cool Maggie of, among other awesome projects, Linus in Hats has traded me a vintage Dymo Label Maker for this drawing.  Whoo!  Photo to come.
I must really want this vintage Dymo Label Maker since I drew it twice (grrrrr for computers that crash right as you finish a drawing you’ve forgotten to save). I’ve most especially wanted one lately because I have a lot of kitchen things—brown sugar, pasta, corn meal—stored in glass jars on shelves. Boy would it help to have labels on those jars, and what could be cooler than Dymo labels?

Autumn is now well under way and winter is just around the corner. Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a beret? Yes, it would! Simple, classic headgear, either in deep red or traditional black (I wish I liked raspberry better) would make winter warmer.

Well hello, there.  I have finished up some other projects and am ready to expand the inventory of The Fulfillment Center. Today’s drawing is the lovely Moonbeam alarm clock from Westclox.  I very much love the vintage mid-century version, but the reissue is nice, too (though I wish they had included the fantastic butterscotch color of the earlier model) and the price is nicer.
And why do I want a new alarm clock? Partly because my cool Biobrite sunrise clock has died, but also because I finally at last have a job.  Yes, it’s true! Starting one week from today I’m going to be doing sciencey things (or rather helping scientists do sciencey things), and so I’m gonna need to get up on time.
This sweet little alarm clock flashes a light before the audible alarm goes off, which isn’t quite as elegant as the 30-minute sunrise reverse-dimmer of my old clock, but the styling is so great—much better than the sunrise clock, especially the new ones (digital clock? ugh!) Maybe I should gather a little flock of alarms to make sure I haul myself out of bed in time…
The Moonbeam clock costs $44, and so does this drawing!

I haven’t found as much time as I’d like to finish the detailed drawing I’ve been working on (I wish I could replace my awesome old printer and make it big!), but here’s one in the mean time: a spangled ice bag.
The main thing I use ice packs for at home is mosquito bites and (here’s hoping) mosquito season seems to be over. But I came across this classic starred ice bag and wanted it. It looks like something Bugs Bunny would use after a night out on the town, doesn’t it? Plus the cloth seems a lot nicer on the skin than the plastic of the gel packs I used to have (before the cats attacked them), and I love the folds.

Here is the blue Pyrex bowl fulfilled, with Mojo for scale. Time to put it to use…  I think I’ll make some ice cream.
