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.
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?

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).
I never really played Chess. I have a hard time strategizing, so it’s not really the game for me. I also had a hard time remember which pieces were which and what they could do. That’s why I really like checkers! Every piece moves diagonally forward 1 square (or jump), but if you have another piece on top of the other, it can move backwards.
That’s why I had a glimmer of hope for my chess playing when I saw Alessia Mazzarella’s chess set. She uses the shape of the pieces to illustrate the moves that it can make.
Now if only this chess set could help me to solve this Geocaching Puzzle: Check & Mate.
Do you ever feel the need to “Like” things, but they aren’t on Facebook. Now, you can! Kid Forever is offering a “Like” and “Disklike” stamp.
Looking for a fun creative craft project? I am! I had to buy an X-acto knife for my Graphic Design class and now I’m looking for excuses to cut paper. Well I found one!
Mini-eco’s Paper Weaving tutorial shows you how to create some Space Invaders, but the possibilities are endless. Grab some colored pencils and graph paper and start planning out what you’re going to weave! They’d actually make great present toppers! And my birthday is coming up…
Listed as a website with unusual navigation, Grip Limited has an unusual website period! But it’s pretty cool, although not necessarily the most usable thing in the world. Let me attempt to explain it to you:
The website is basically a big table with one row and multiple columns. The columns each scroll independently, but are fixed to be the height of the page. There’s a menu at the top of the page, which expands down, but it’s not really that helpful unless you’re looking for a specific project that they worked on.
As far as navigation is concerned: you can use your mouse to grab and move left and right as well as up and down within a column; similarly you can use your arrow keys to move left and right across the columns and up and down the active column. Also, you can use your scroll wheel to move up and down the column. You can collapse columns by pushing the Space key or by clicking on the column header. If you forget any of this, you can reference the second column, appropriately called “OMG WTF”.
