Fine Art Redefined

Paris-based artist Jonathan Bréchignac just took the meaning of fine art to a whole new place. He creates super intricate illustrations of carpets covered in detailed patterns using regular ballpoint pens. The pieces are huge so they must take forever to finish. “The Blue Carpet” was done using ultraviolet ink so part of it glows in the dark. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any cooler.

Mini Street Art

I’ve always felt that every part of the street, city, building, country if you will, should be artistic.

Joe Iurato is making that happen one tiny step at a time with little wooden figurines that blend into an urban environment. Can you imagine walking to work and finding one of these little pieces of art? That sounds like a good day in the making to me.

Chomp

I found these Chomp puzzle books designed by Mirim and had to share it. They’re so adorable! The books are designed to teach kids about basic food chains in different environments; Forest, Ocean, Arctic, Jungle, and Desert. Is there a cuter way to educate your kids? No. No there isn’t. I do love how all the wooden animals connect to one another and form their own puzzle – which doubles up as an explanation about how each animal is vital to the food chain process!

Carousel

I stumbled upon Fillipo Marongiu‘s work and it was such a happy little moment. His designs for Carousel, a company that designs and operates casual dining restaurants are just so darned cute! They really make me happy :) A happy Monday to all!

Don’t text, whistle and drive

Paper art amazingness time.

The very talented Ink Studio created this little world that I’d love to discover in miniature size. I think their sketches alone are works of art. But what they did with paper kind of blows my mind. How cute is their message – “Don’t text, whistle and drive instead.”

Electricity in the dark

Ooh, neon paint! Doesn’t that just turn up the volume of your Wednesday? I love this series of glow in the dark portraits by Hid Saib. Flickers of luminescent neon paint turn into works of art on these girls faces. I feel like these are screen shots from a very cool music video.

Turning thirty

As the new year approaches, we are all reflecting on the year that has passed and what it meant. Where we have gone, what we have done, achieved, learned. Soon, there’ll be a whole new calendar of possibilities ahead of us.

Next year, we’ll grow a year older. For those turning thirty, here’s a little something just for you :) Designed by the creative folks at reramble. Writing a novel sounds like a 2014 must!

Skull Canvases

I love this series of work by Sasha Vinogradova. Way to revive Russian folk painting and make it amazeballs.

The Q

Designed by Andreas M Hansen, the Q is the world’s first social camera. In today’s world we’re all about connecting and sharing no? This very hipster/cool/clever invention has amazing design aesthetics all round. From their advertising to the product itself and all its applications.

I particularly like the Q’s manifesto:

To get the most out of life, you have to embrace the new. There are new places, and new people. New experiences, and new feelings. New highs…and new lows. But it’s always worth giving it a shot. After all, if we never did anything out of the ordinary, then no one would have any stories to tell. We wouldn’t be able to make moments special. Memories wouldn’t be worth sharing. So, it’s a good thing we can make the ordinary extraordinary. Because if you don’t limit your expectations, you’ll find that there’s no end to the possibilities. You can do the unexpected. You can go the extra mile. You can live in the moment. So give it a shot. Shoot for the sky. Shoot for the stars. Just shut up and shoot.”
