Happy Friday and welcome to another week of Fun Links of the Week! As always, I’m gathering up the most interesting links out there, especially the ones that relate to art, design and photography. Of course, I sprinkle in some style and business links in, as well, just to add some flavor. Though I try to keep things relevant, just a quick heads up, you might find some slighter older links in here, too.
What are you to this weekend? I’m hanging out with some old friends at Balboa Park tomorrow and then we’re celebrating my nephew Riverton’s second birthday at my sister’s house on Sunday. Lots of fun up ahead. Just crossing my fingers no one gets sick!
Have a great weekend!
