This Stag Beetle Kit by Assembli is freaking awesome! The beetle itself is a work of art but their packaging is on point too. I want one to put up on my wall. Too bad Christmas has passed, otherwise it would have gone on my wish list.
I always go back to Calvin and Hobbes as one of the earliest influencers of my journey through the realm of art. I loved it as a child and I still love it as an adult. Thank you Bill Watterson for your wonderful work of art that continues to inspire me.
Watch this great piece by kaptainkristian, Art Before Commerce.
Great video by Eric Friedensohn on how to look at life with a different perspective. There are things in life that you have no control over, and if we take a step back and look at the silver lining of things, we can live life just a bit happier.
The Frisk Company has partnered with Takashi Murakami to create these awesome mini sculptures that freshen your mouth at the same time! Watch the video about the project below!
I've noticed that I can sometimes get impatient when waiting in line for a restaurant or for any other type of queue, but I'm learning to take in these moments and enjoy them as they are.
Even in times like these, just waiting around, I can spend with my wife and be content that we are here together at that very moment. This segment in time has come and passed and will never happen again.
Its the little things in life ...
A great documentary that explores the memories behind tattoos of an older generation that really challenges the idea that ink is something we'll regret later down the line. Moreover, the film really takes you to a place of intimacy. You get to hear the stories behind some of the tattoos these people have gotten and the film also forces you to think twice before you judge a book by its cover. There is most likely a reason behind that tattoo, why not take the time to hear the story behind it?
I don't even know where to start. I've been following WO3A for quite some time and hope to own a toy of theirs in the near future. I haven't made a purchase yet mostly because I don't have the funds to buy one of their amazing toys.
It is definitely getting way more difficult especially with the new release of the Bravest Warriors toys. I mean, just look at them! Beautifully made! You can pre-order them at Bambalandstore May 21st, mark your calendars!
This is what I need...
You turn up because of the people around you.
You know, the ones with common interests and sense of ambition.
The ones who want to invent new things and do old things better.
The ones whose distortion of reality present challenges that stretch you.
The ones who give you freedom to do things differently.
The ones you trust not to drop the ball (there are no ball droppers here).
You even turn up for the ones who grate on you (they’re also brilliant).
You turn up because the people around you value what you do.
They believe in you and give you what you need.
Together you create something more than a job.
Don’t settle for anything less.
Artist Paige Smith in Los Angeles crafts paper and resin geode crystals and installs them throughout the city. Sometimes I happen to cross paths with one of these and they always put a smile on my face. Such simple forms that produce beautiful results against an urban landscape.
It's Friday! If you have no plans for the weekend, maybe it's time to create a few industrial pipe stools for your home. Love Grows Wild has a great DIY tutorial on how to build these awesome stools, so hurry and gather your supplied to build these before the weekend passes you by.
As many should know by now, BB-8 the spherical droid, is not cgi. The droid is an actual physical object that the actors were able to interact with. BB-8 has been developed with the aid of Sphero the company that developed the smartphone controlled RC ball.
Well Christian Poulsen has already hacked said RC ball into a mini BB-8! If you want to build your own little BB-8, Poulsen has a breakdown on how to make one at Make:
Great Vsauce video on calculating how long it would take until we run out of names, as well as what a name's effect is on individuals. I found this quite interesting mostly because my name is super common and I often ponder about this very subject.
If you're looking for a fun weekend project or a fun DIY gift for someone, this is definitely a fun project to pick up.
The guys over at Man at Arms: Reforged build the Hylian Shield from scratch. Awesome!
