Hiatus Terminated.

The trip out West was a success! I found a place to live and I’m getting super stoked about the beginning of my “new life”. As scary as things are, I’m super excited about my move…so excited in fact that I was all abuzz with creative energy, so I decided to give SparkleShock a little makeover. It’s the same layout, but isn’t as busy. I really liked how simple I made the layout for my other blog (Jade Pheenix), so I wanted to sort of keep that idea going with the new layout & header for SparkleShock. It still has some “crazy” elements, but is a bit more subdued as to not be a color/pattern overload. Tell me what you guys think…I hope you like!

I’ll be back to some regular posts tomorrow (well somewhat regular…things are still crazy), but until then, check out these vintage travel posters that I found…

The posters above were designed by David Klein back in the 50’s for then popular airline TWA. I LOVE the colors and I love how each one depicts the destination in such an interesting way. He now does ads for Orbitz, so you may recognize some of his illustration. Be sure to check out Klein’s site for more of his awesome travel art.

Oh! And just a friendly reminder you can…
