Accenting the Absurd with Ümlaut Brooklyn

Is this week over yet? Apparently not, so I’m closing mine with some laughs from the droll but incredibly devious minds at Ümlaut Brooklyn. Jocelyn & Roland’s 2021 card releases hit precisely the right note with a dysfunctional dose of retro sass, perfect for today’s discerning, distanced greeting card market.

I love that they are taking their signature imagery and humor and putting it on these glam compact mirrors. How better to stay sharp in every sense of the word?

Ümlaut Brooklyn is exhibiting at NY NOW Digital Market, where you can shop these wares and much, much more. And, if you think all of the above is funny, wait until you catch up with Roland and Jocelyn on the next podcast episode of The Paper Plane Cocktail Hour, dropping next Thursday, January 14, at 5 pm EST.

Amy & I had so much fun catching up with Jocelyn & Roland — it was the next-best thing to visiting their booth! Don’t miss this laugh-filled glimpse into their creative process, what’s selling, and even their grant program for young artists, the template of which is free to anyone wanting to unveil their own. Remember, if you’re listening in, you’re not really drinking alone!
