Brazilian telecom company Vivo recently sponsored a public arts project that involved 100 artists decorating and painting 100 public telephone booths around São Paulo. How cool would it be to stumble upon one of these helmet-like shells on the street? Even I would be inclined to pick up the phone and call you . . . maybe. Check out the rest of the designs here!
A melting ice cream truck by the geniuses behind The Glue Society . . . just brilliant!
I love that artist Ryan Berkley is able to give each of his animal illustrations such fantastic personalities. He’s even created individual profiles for each of his well dressed animals. The lion, inspired by his own luscious locks, owns his own hair salon and hair care line called ”The Mane Event.” The fox is an eccentric gardener and whistles “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” to his carrots and tap-dances to entertain the corn. How charming!
Mary Katrantzou has once again joined forces with photographer Erik Magidan Heck with a series of dreamlike images highlighting pieces from her spring and fall collections. In their second and third collaborative effort, these photographs were inspired by early Parisian Surrealist paintings, Catholic iconography, and Greek mythology. Honestly, mesmerizing.
Artist Diem Chau has followed up her intricate crayon carvings with a sneak peek of two new carpenter pencil carvings she’s created for an upcoming show in Milan. In Raven & The Sun, the raven’s beak and round bead is carved from graphite and the rest of the bird is carved from the pencil’s wood and covered in graphite dust. Honestly, awe-inspiring. Read more about the inspiration behind each piece here.
I’m simply delighted by this series by Chicago photographer Paul Octavious, where his subjects are leaning parallel to trees . . . so wonderfully lighthearted and clever!
