Boing Boing Inventory: Jonathan Koshi

[Mobile? Click here.]

Inventory is a new series where characters in the Boing Boing Universe reveal their favorite apparel, gadgets, weapons, and spells. This time, it's the turn of designer/artist Jonathan Koshi.

Regular BB readers may recall that Koshi recently created a fantastic series of Dia de los Muertos skulls of Pac-man, Alien, Kermit the Frog, and other pop culture icons like the unicorn (above left). He was also the original designer of open source music management software Songbird and the user experience director at Minted, where he's still an active player in the design competition community. An avid cyclist, Koshi is co-organizer of San Francisco's Supermarket Street Sweep bike race benefiting the city's Food Bank.

  1. All very nice… but where are the “weapons” you refer to in the intro?  I’m always up for acquiring a new personal defense weapon (I like portable, easily concealed, easily deployed, and lethal weapons myself), but I can’t seem to find any in the above listing.  Anyone?

      1.  Uh…well, when I see a word (a “literal” tool) in an article, I generally think it refers to some tangible, literal thing.  Had this been a novel, I would have understood the word to be symbolic, referring to (aha!) a fictional thing. There IS a difference, thus the literal interpretation. Is the writer of the above intro taking literary license?  Hmmm….

        1. Yeah! The writer refers to “spells” too! Where the hell are the spells? Damn that writer.

          1. I’m still miffed that spell checkers don’t really check the quality of my spells.

  2. Huh. I always spend more than I can afford at Muji when I’m in NYC (and in Bangkok actually) and have lots of pens and pencils from them. How did I miss that fountain pen?!
