Just a day before the shortest day of the year, I have some bright stuff to share. First of all some bright gifts from Pen Pencil Stencil (don't forget the news section for nice photos and ideas). Then get in the photo cabin and get your picture done! Have a playful afternoon and get out your Lego. Finally relax with this video of a scuba diving in a newly flooded meadow. Some bright and "interesting" thoughts on graphic design, especially for my fellow graphic designer collegues.
Merry christmas to all!
Happily ever after
This happy bright summer is almost over, but fortunately you can keep eating these beautiful icecreams all year round. If you like something to stay happy on a daily basis, have a look at these yummy sandwiches. And if you're hungry for some happy funky jewellery visit Denise's website. Her traditional costumes are worth a visit too! I've been looking for some nice bold socks (without Snoopy or teddy bears) and finally found Happy Socks. Bright, classic, happy! Sarah recently opened her supermarket. It's fun to shop around. For all the male fashion addicts around there, did you know these architectural designs by Nahum Villasana? And finally: a poetic video to get you through these last few weeks of summer.
Pearl's girl. Not a reference to the song by Underworld, but more to the magpie I am myself. I found some beautiful pearls to share with you.
We will never be green enough, so for some ultimate green inspiration, Veer created this amazing microsite. More inspiration per theme can be found in photographic webmag Purpose. The childhood edition contains some challenging images, definately worth a visit. A website I personally don't visit anymore is Atelier New York. It's too much fashion temptation to handle for me, even more now they accept international orders. I'd better pick a nice parka at Uniqlo, because their Tokyo Fashion Map is so good. Or some extremely weird but beautiful white dress shoes by Koji Horigome. Or don't spend anything and play with the good old Lego, like Jan vormann. I could make a Lego pearl necklace to pair my original Lego bracelet for example...
Almost forgot to mention the last pearl: No lifeguard on duty series by J Bennett Fitts, surreal color palette which really makes me travel far far away.
Tonight I'll watch Into the Wild. I already love the songs Eddie Vedder wrote for this movie, but I'm very curious to finally discover Christopher's great adventure to Alaska. A very different adventure about Alaska is I love Alaska. This documentary reveals the life of a middle aged woman from Housten, Texas, through her personal search engine queries. Interesting concept, but also very sad.
Browsing through a project book of The Gates by Christo and Jeanne-Claude made me really want to go to New York City again. To discover the people and other highlights of the city. To eat a hot pretzel, visit the MoMa plus some other musea and just wander around. In the mean time I have some old jews telling me jokes. Or I have a look at the different volumes of the S+M+L project by Marvie. Or I dream of doing some 3D printing.
In case you need it to get through this cold and snowy february month: here is some help.
