Welcome to Store 344, the 344 Company Store! Obviously, a lot of the items on the site are commercially available—CDs, DVDs, books I’ve designed for others—but this is a list of things where I’m out front as the author. How would you feel about cementing our nerdy love affair by… you know… you buying something?

344 Questions—The Creative Person’s
Do-It-Yourself Guide to Insight, Survival,
and Artistic Fulfilment

The secret to creative success lies not in knowing the right answers, but in asking the right questions—and this book is full of them!

In fact, 344 Questions is composed entirely of questions designed to help you determine where you are in your life and career, where you want to be, and how to get there. It’s a therapy session on paper. Hopefully, you’ll also laugh along the way.

In addition to my questions, the book features questions from creative celebrities, including Judd Apatow, Marian Bantjes, Wayne Coyne, Dave Eggers, Ze Frank, Christoph Niemann, Patton Oswalt, Stefan Sagmeister, J.J. Sedelmaier, Dave Stewart, Tarsem, and many more.

The questions are designed to get you thinking and drawing and writing with room on each spread to fill in the blanks and jot down ideas.

The Graphic Eye—Photographs
by Graphic Designers from Around the Globe

The Graphic Eye collects 500 photographs by 120
of the world’s best graphic designers in one handsome volume.
And I’m not just saying that. It really is quite beautiful.

And the photographs are excellent without exception! I know this, because I selected them from thousands of submissions from renowned designers such as Marian Bantjes, Ed Fella, Bryony Gomez-Palacio, Jeri Heiden, Jessica Helfand, Julia Hoffmann, Paul Sahre, and Jakob Trollbäck—and then put them into what I think is an interesting—hell, possibly even an evocative sequence for you. Order your copy now. You won’t be sorry you did.

Here’s the official text: As visual creatives, graphic designers are well informed about photography. They often carry around a camera, but rarely share the same concerns as professional photographers. As a result, the photographs they produce are distinctly unconventional and often appear in their design work—in fact, a glance at a designer’s personal photography will offer vital clues into their working methods and obsessions. Selected from the personal portfolios of the world’s most innovative and creative graphic designers, “The Graphic Eye” includes every type of photographic image, from macro details and funny moments, to found type, street scenes, rare objects, and monumental vistas. The book also includes personal portraits, quirky fashions, and organic and manmade colos, textures, and environments. This book is a unique and inspirational reference library of innovative imagery.

Beat that with a stick.

100 Days of Monsters

The first 100 Daily Monsters, collected in one volume, accompanied by a selection of the best stories from the blog, along with a DVD of everything. (I mean it. Everything. Everywhere. Ever.)

At the end of 2006 I filmed myself drawing an ink-blot monster every day for 100 days and posted the time-lapsed videos online. The clips got an overwhelming response from all corners of the globe as visitors became collaborators and submitted stories about the trials and triumphs of each unique monster every day. The book contains all 100 Monsters, 257 of my favorite stories, a brilliant foreword from Ze Frank, and some additional goodies.

The included DVD archives all 100 Daily Monster® video clips, 701 bonus comments and stories, one Real Time Monster, a special video message from me to you, and 10 Open Source Ink Blots™ that let you make your own Daily Monsters.
