Masterpiece plates

Architect/artist Hong Yi (aka Red) has been using a dinner plate as backdrop for posting elaborate food art on Instagram. Hong Yi, who also goes by the name Red, is an artist and architect who loves to paint without actually painting. This March, she decided to create a new image every day using food, posting the results on Instagram to keep her accountable. 

In addition, anyone inspired by the artist’s work is invited to post their own fun food photos on Instagram too. Hashtag your mashed potato mountain with #creativemarch, but considering the gauntlet Red has thrown done already, you’d better bring it.

Music Monday: Andreya Triana

And even though I can’t see far
I hold tighter and draw the stars

This little story began, as so many things do in life, with a simple cup of coffee. One day, Japanese illustrator Tokomo Shintani decided to draw on her paper coffee cup, to make the most of her 30min coffee break. The result is a series of miniature caffeinated works of art that flow from Starbucks coffee cups.  Although I’m not a big fan of Starbucks coffee, I love the way how it inspires artists to use it as a medium. Hooray for coffee. And hooray for creativity! And here are some tunes to celebrate the new week:

Apple iPhone 5

 

The Apple iPhone 5 is finally here. We must all agree that it’s a little… different from its ancestors as it has the most radical redesign of Apple’s flagship product since its birth. We spot a larger screen, a different and larger shape (people already call this beauty “The Viagra Edition”), more features and new accessories. In addition to the iPhone 5, Apple also unveiled new iPods, a revamped iTunes and some brand-new earphones that will ship with every Apple portable product.

You can watch the keynote, that took place September 12 at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, in its entirety here

Tik Tak is not dead!

I think I remember where my love for geometric visuals comes from. Tik Tak absolutely ruled my childhood! So psychedelic & arty. Nice work, Digitalism.

Say Something

What would you like to do before you die?
Say Something is a new city-project by an anonymous Ghent based person. He or she wants to create an open discussion among the Ghent-population. The open questions are on the posters, the dialogue depends on the different responses of the participants.

How does it work?
When you see a poster of Say Something in the streets of Ghent, you can answer the question by SMS or email. The most remarkable answers are posted on the Facebook page. That’s where I found this picture (and the one of Budapest which I posted a few weeks ago). I’m love love loving these new creative projects in this vibrant city.

I think I’ll put coconut-pineapple bowling on my to-do-list for this summer.
What a wonderful waste of time ^^

DIY

It’s #wijvenweek, so that makes it perfectly all right to post three of my favorite juwelry shops. Do you also want to buy original hand-made (et très bon marché) jewelry? Take a look at Pendientes del cieloÎle des doux secrets  or Deux hirondelles‘s Facebook pages. I’m sure you will find something you’ll like.

You’re welcome.

Good books, great stories

Low-Commitment Projects: Sandwich Artist

Making stuff happen with little time and energy.

Each and every Monday morning of 2012, Brittany Powell and Tae Kitakata will post a quick art project on Low-Commitment Projects . This website provides them a chance to share concepts and schemes with minimal risk because they’re quick.

“Sandwich Artist”, was their first post. I’m already looking forward to their next idea.

Hero // Stippling, Pointillism

This video shows the making of  “Hero” a drawing of Miguel Endara’s dad, which is composed entirely out of 3.2 million ink dots.  I think it’s a great motivator for endurance and hard work. Especially considering that it’s not just the act of making thousands of dots, but it’s also managing to compose all of those dots into a (rather funny) image of his father.

Beyond amazing! (:

PS: I’m wondering how many hand-cramps the guy had though…

Address Is Approximate

Story: A lonely desk toy longs for escape from the dark confines of the office, so he takes a cross country road trip to the Pacific Coast in the only way he can – using a toy car and Google Maps Street View.

This is the result of my first design work in Illustrator  *proud*
