La Tortillería    |    http://latortilleria.com

"Located in Ourense, Spain, this place is anything but typical, it is a refreshing alternative for local walkers used to the traditional bar or restaurant. The architect Ruben D. Gil and his wife Gretta R. Valdés decided to spice up the rainy Galician city with an unusual spot to enjoy international cuisine and drinks in an atmosphere of light wood ceilings, adobe walls, dim lighting and steel furniture. The agency worked on the design of its visual identity, stationery materials, packaging for branded products, to go packaging, coasters, menus and tote bags. A custom made bottle of water on each table will welcome its guests in October 2014."

Originally founded in an old tortilla factory building, La Tortillería is a creative company with a passion for images and words with the exceptional ability of turning them into an exquisite reflection of an idea. We create, brand, design, publish and advertise blending creativity and functionality to grant each project a unique personality. We are creative problem solvers who begin with the end in mind either from scratch or from an outlined plan and make things happen come hell or high water.

I like to check the comedy blog Splitsider for updates on various media, such as their news on SNL cast changes, The Daily Show recaps and what’s happening in late-night. It’s not only informative but funny, as one would hope. During lunch I caught this great quote from comedian Patton Oswalt, as featured in Time Magazine, on, as Splitsider explains, “why he took a break from all social media this summer and plans to do it again next year.” I know Oswalt’s work only passingly, but have seen him on many roundtable and pundit shows, too. He’s a smart guy, as you can see in this little nugget of smarts:

"Maybe it’s because this younger generation doesn’t have the demarcation we have—of a world before cell phones and then after. It was always there for them. So it’s not a novelty. And thus has less power. They don’t remember the endorphin rush of sudden connectivity, like when people my age first logged onto dial-up Internet and, after 10 minutes, sheepishly searched for their own name. Or the first time we received an email. And when those things happened on our phones? It was like the apes touching the monolith at the beginning of 2001."

The Calligraphy Post.

A few days ago I bought a course "Introduction of the Art of Modern Calligraphy" by Molly Jacques, which you should definitely check, and I fell in love with calligraphy.

Now I find this useful infographic with the basics of calligraphy, including tools. In case you want to try your skills you should try to do those exercise. 

In both cases, (the classes from molly and this infographic) they ask you simple tools to begining your training:

Books.

In case you’re most an analog vintage retro-old guy, and you prefer to read a real book that stuck your nose in a monitor these are cool option for calligraphy beginners (the last to images):

Here are the last useful links:
