brainFly the neural skies with this awesome brain balloon, created by the International Brain Foundation to bring attention to our wonderful brains and some of the diseases and disorders that cause problems with it. From the website's schedule, it looks like this giant brain won't be floating by you anytime soon, but we still heart it anyway, maybe because our heads are already in the clouds.
brain-pick Let's celebrate the cerebellum! The Mickey Mouse covered with brains is by Emilio Garcia, and, of course Disney, via Street Anatomy. Disney is smart to Qee up ol' Mickey, I'm sure this kind of designer collab will do well. The brain cake is from Cake Wrecks via the very good blog Man Nurse Diaries,  and the embroidered brain scan, which lives on the wonderful Musuem of Scientifically Accurate Fabric Brain Art, is by Marjorie Taylor. Okay, I know, enough about MJ, but did you know he was buried without his brain? No joke.
new-guts-tees-2009We've got a couple of sparkly new tees coming in today, both with fabulous metallic inks, we hope you'll like 'em. The first, barely in time for Valentine's Day, is a Heart of Gold tee, for ladies only. Quite possibly even more exciting is our new guts and glands shirt, which includes all the guts and glands characters -- even testicles! For those of you really wanting to wear your prostate on your sleeve, this is the shirt for you. They are sorta arrayed where they are supposed to go, offering a mini-anatomy refresher when you need it.
I've been hankering to make a gutsy or glandy magnet set, but these being lean times and all, well, that idea will likely fall into the "make those later" basket. Wouldn't it be cute to slap a mammary gland on a note to buy more milk? Or perhaps the salivary glands need something mouth-watering? What would the adrenal glands care for -- more coffee? I got some magnet sheets and crafted a few handmade gland magnet sets -- and you can have one when you win our gland contest! Leave your reply in the comments section below with your name, email (we will not use it for any other purpose other than to contact you and it will not be made public) and the correct answer to this question: "What's the major difference between endocrine glands and exocrine glands?" Two winners will be chosen at random. Good luck!
