Here is some stuff that I've been liking recently. It's all been discovered at times when I should have been working, interacting with other people, exercising, answering the phone, tidying up, running errands or sleeping:
1. Matthew Lyons
I found out about Matthew Lyons on the art and design blog Kitsune Noir. Who doesn't love a bit of 50s / retro-future / James Bond / Jetsons style stuff? Yeah, that's right, nobody. Matthew Lyons' work combines precision and expression in a way that'll make you jealous. I've been using the above image as my current desktop background.

2. Lego Cl!ck
Lego are doing really good things these days. They've really got it together. I also saw this awesome (and quite inspiring) little stop-motion film posted on Kitsune Noir a while back (I probably should have just included KN in the top 5) and just re-watched it this morning. Plastic fantastic!

3. Buildings by Ligia
While browsing around, I was quite taken by a few of Ligia's Little Red Riding Hood illustrations. You get a really nice sense of cold, clear winter air in them. The buildings in the town are brilliantly handled too.

4. Chilli Heatwave Doritos
To anyone I've not seen in a while, please be warned: I'm now a fat man. I'm a big fat man with a big fat arse and orangey powder all over my fingers. They sell these silly crisps in ENORMOUS BLOODY BAGS!

5. Maturation by Achewood
If you're not down with Achewood, you ain't worth spit in my book. This page from last month is a perfect summation of what it's like being a paranoid man growing older.
