LEGO Architecture


If you are like me, then you too want to play with LEGOs but do not have the socially acceptable excuse to do so. Wanting to tap into those childhood feel-good vibes, LEGO is putting together construction sets for adults.

Perspectives, Milly July


A Ms. Milly July joins us this week on Eleven, supporting her thoughts, dropping some knowledge and speaking about her new mix-tape the Sneak Chamber, which is set to drop at the end of this week (May 22nd). You can listen to some tidbits of the mix-tape at Milly’s website for the meantime and enjoy a brief interview between Milly and us next…

11: What are you listening to right now Milly?
Milly: Alabama- In a Hurry

11: Beard and partial mullets go a long way in my book. I consider them main elements of my personal style. How about you, what influences your style?
M: Takashi Nakanishi & Nick Drake

11: Ya know, what ever happened to the good ol’ days of Nickelodeon. Double Dare? Global GUTS? Pete & Pete? Salute your Shorts!? UGH. Dude has epic bangs though. Alright, completely unrelated unless Nick Drake’s bangs are so long he could actually wrap it around and tuck it under his upper lip, but do you ever think a mustache is inappropriate?
M: “You got money to pay for fake mustaches huh?” – Stewie Griffin

11: Gotta love it. Do you have a favorite pair of kicks?
M: Madfoot Madcrown Yellow Tang

11: Do you believe fashion is important?
M: It’s as important as you allow it to be.

11: What rules of fashion do you never break and which do you break?
M: There’s a rule book?

11: EXACTLY! Well said. What are your thoughts on man-bags?
M: It’s all luggages to me.

11: What’s the first thing you notice in another person’s outfit?
M: Jeans

11: I still rock the JNCO jeans, not gonna lie. You can fit a small child into the back pocket of one of those bad boys! Okay, so, if you were running for president, what would your slogan be?
M: Love and peace, love and peace, love and peeeeeeaaaaaaace!

11: As always, my favorite… would you rather have a Jheri Curl or a Mullet?
M: Jheri Curl

11: DAMN! No hesitation! I think the Mullet originally had a fairly big lead, but is slowly falling back into place. Milly, thanks so much, we look forward to your thoughts this week. For all of you that skipped the top blurb of this post, be sure to check out some sound bites from Milly’s upcoming mix tape entitled the Sneak Chamber here.

Bookmarks, Josh Tetreault (Part 1)

So here it is, Josh Tetreault 1.5 on Eleven alongside Milly July who will be introducing herself shortly! Josh was nice enough to include some links that keep his gears moving, enjoy.

The Language of Dylan


As I’ve previously stated, Joshua Tetreault is a very talented guy, but prior to even knowing who this gentleman was I knew of The Language of Dylan. The Language of Dylan is a beautifully one-off book, finely crafted by Josh implementing found pieces of paper, type writing, found imagery, a extremely precious attention to detail and craftsmanship. Josh’s assignment:

Design a book jacket and style guides for a biography of an artist that has inspired you outside the world of graphic design.

Josh’s explains his process: “I chose to design 3 books in one to illustrate the three levels of Dylan’s growth and language shifts through 1960-1967. I learned more about myself and life through my research and sleepless nights with the craftsman of language, Bob Dylan.”

More detailed views of the book can be seen after the jump…
