These creative logos made by Wolff Olins really amuse me! I love the pretty flower one of course, but who doesn’t love plastic farm animals? More logos on their Flickr.
Via for me, for you.

These ethereal pieces by Dan-ah Kim are too much! I just love the unworldly feeling of them, and the use of textures and sewing with the paint. Gorgeous! Check out My Love For You’s post about her to see a cool music video she worked on as well.

I adore these collages by Linda Solovic – the colors, the printed papers, the shapes – they are so cute! You can see more collages here, and of course check out Linda’s website as well!

This artist reminds me of artwork by Katie Vernon http://www.katievernon.com/

It's like a smokey fairytale, you can make up a great magical story when you watch the picture. To another place, I agree!

Dressed in sheepskin coats and hats, locals in Nuanquan China celebrate the Lantern Festival each year by flinging molten iron at a wall to create beautiful showers of sparks. The tradition reportedly started 4 or 500 years ago when a blacksmith was too poor to buy fireworks to celebrate the festival. A little dangerous, but so so beautiful! Check it out!

nautilus house

This amazing house was designed by Senosiain Arquitectos for a couple in Mexico City after they decided they wanted a house that looked like a snail shell! They now live there with their children. I can’t even imagine what it must be like to live in a house like that! I especially love the rainbow glass front window. For more detailed information about the house, and some more incredible pictures, see this page on DVICE.

cassette tape scarf

So, the sweet cassette tape art above has been around the internet enough lately that I’m pretty confident you guys have all seen it…
(If you haven’t, or haven’t had your fill, check out this page, which has a variety of the pieces, some of which you might not have seen.)
But look at this other cassette art I came across today…

A cassette tape scarf – pretty interesting right? I don’t know how long it would last being worn, but shoot, I’d wear it!
I wonder what we’ll do next with tapes!?

Omg. That is so cool! A lot of time must have been spent on that.

I LOVE this concept. Especially the scarf. Just saw some handmade leggings on LookBook that remind me of this chunky knit look. Maybe not so functional, but awesome nonetheless.

Peep making!

It’s almost time for Easter, which means it’s time to eat Peeps! Yum!
The Chicago Tribune has a neat slideshow of the Peeps factory that I enjoyed – you can check it out here. See a few of the shots below! (I found the cool swordfighting Peeps picture here.)

Peeps without sugar-coating look a little bit scary!

early emoticons?

I came across these on Made you Look. Neat, right? I can’t decide if I think they are legitimately from the 70′s or not. Perhaps! Either way, I like them, and that they’re “films.” A tiny drop more of information at Made You Look.

K @ Blog Goggles -Apr 01, 2009, 1:23AM
Haha I highly doubt it. Did emoticons even exist back then? But they're pretty great.

a small world

The author of Mission Mission spotted this little installation attached to the wall of the building across the street from her/his apartment. I love it – I’d like to imagine some little person actually does live in there! See more pictures here.

Oh man! I've actually seen this before! It was too cute! It also made me think about Basil- The Great Mouse Detective (Walt Disney).

I’m crazy about these images by Carlo Van De Roer, aren’t they fabulous!? I’d love to have a giant mural of one for a wall in my living room. The feeling of these pictures is like another world!
