    That Zappos shirt is pretty amazing; I love the “it’s complicated” option.

    And I am so looking forward to seeing James Jean’s show here in NYC; I definitely had a bit of a “dance all excited in my living room” moment when I found out he’d be at Jonathan Levine; one my of favorite illustrators.

    James Jean’s sketchbooks are stunning!
    F&L’s expense tweets are great. I wonder how long they’ll keep it up? Until they’re significantly profitable? Forever?
