Little Friends Photos has managed to capture dogs looking as mean and frightening as sharks. Some of these are seriously scary. Maybe sharks wouldn’t be as scary if they were on land? Happy to see these pooches are attacking nothing more than a fetch ball.
OK Go teamed up with Sesame Street to create a stop-motion video about colors. This song is so catchy! It’s been in my head for the whole weekend! Also, I am loving OK Go’s creativity lately. Also check out their new music video for Needing/Getting where they did some stunt driving while still playing instruments.
Adam Ladd is an identity designer who decided to ask his 5-year-old about different logos. She recognizes some and others she deduces the meaning of based on what she sees. Very clever. I will have to try this with some kids I know!
Coincidentally, I found a very relevant post on Pintrest today. This week I will be starting the 3rd of my Graphic Design Certificate courses, this one being typography.
I have always kind of been obsessed with Legos. I have plans to create a stop motion animation video with them someday and once tried to draw one, but I didn’t get very far with that. I recently came across a cool art project with Legos that involved a lot less effort/knowledge than the aforementioned tasks. This involves lego pieces and ink, basically using the Lego pieces as stamps! There were some very cool patterns created and I can’t wait to get some ink and start playing around with what you can create!
Perhaps even the stop motion and stamping techniques can be combined?
With my healthy obsession with office supplies, I always love seeing new twists to a classic item. These two twists on a Post-It are interesting. I would love to use the Block Notes to create a to-do list and I could see myself wearing the Post-It note watch grocery shopping.

I bought a pair of fingerless gloves for when I am out caching and using my phone. Unfortunately my hands still get really cold. I haven’t really been looking for anything, but I came across these cool gloves from Muji which use a conductive material woven in the index and thumb fingers.
For those of you who are handy with a needle, there’s always the DIY option. All you need is some conductive thread, a needle, and scissors.
A really cool set of letters from Marc Böttler.
He uses perspective and depth to turn these rectangular wooden blocks into letters. Check out the K a little closer to see what I mean. (The left half of the letter goes from the ground up while the right side sits entirely on the ground).
