I liked the makeup tutorial one! I would love to see videos showing where you get inspiration from...the vintage styles are so unique and beautiful.

Recently our Web Operations Manager, Heather, helped to organize a really fun event here in Philly, the Independance Day Scooter Rally! It lasts for a whole weekend, and this year was very successful, with over 150 people who showed up from all over- two ladies even came all the way from Oklahoma! Heather kindly shared a few really cool pictures from the rally, check them out!

These soft photographs are from Joyce Tenneson‘s series Intimacy. This is such a wonderful way to photograph flowers – I love it!

I think you all will love this wonderful time-lapse video by Caitlin Parker!
This is a time lapse video in progress. I am an artist. I built this dollhouse and put it in my yard. I planted North East Native plants in and around the house. A hunting camera/motion camera is set up to take stills of the house as it evolves, decays from weather, and as animals wander through. This is ongoing- so far only two and half months have been documented. I plan on one year, to watch the seasons change…

Really cool concept. I think I'd like it more if all the shots were day. I like all the animals you see at night, but the back and forth between night and day shots was a little distracting. Awesome project though.

That's awesome!

I’m feeling so inspired by these pretty rolled bird books! Anyone know anything about their creator?

These are so effective, beautiful.
Courtney Curtis -Jul 28, 2009, 10:45PM
Those are gorgeous! I could totally see a wall papered with long strips of bird books. Maybe in a loft? LOVE it.

drifting away

Ieva Laurina‘s hammock is too dreamy! I would love to be that girl relaxing on it… These pictures are from a preview of her work to go in the Lódz Design Festival in Poland this coming October- this hammock is titled Nest Hammock.

white box

This video is a really neat paper animation, directed by Makoto Yabuki. Supposedly it represents thinking outside the box, and an artist getting inspiration – I just wish that papers would react like this when I draw!

Very cool. Made me think of CandyLand, Dr. Suess, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. :)

PET project

petprojclose.jpg
These pretty jellyfish are all made from PET plastic bottles! I love that this art recycles, on top of which, the jellyfish are so delicate and pretty! Here’s a little note from the creator, Miwa Koizumi:
I love the idea of using liquid containers to make water animals. Contained/containing, trash/not-trash, like the jelly-fish or anemone: Living/non-living
And I wanted some pets…

Cute!
