So cute! I love when they start moshing and voguing.
Type Delight by Nina Harcus.
I used cymatics as the inspiration and basis to form each square (note). I did this by using an amplifier and putting paper with salt on top , I played each note on the piano and when the salt vibrated it moved the crystals and when settled they formed patterns. I then converted the formations into the vector images.
Holy whaaaaat. Amazing.

Green Pedestrian Crossing created by Jody Xiong
The China Environmental Protection Foundation developed an outdoor campaign, displayed on the street, to creatively promote this message. They decided to leverage a busy pedestrian crossing; a place where both pedestrians and drivers meet.
The campaign involved laying a canvas 12.6 metres long by 7 metres wide on the ground, thus covering the pedestrian crossing with a large leafless tree. On either side of the road, beneath the traffic lights, were placed sponge cushions soaked in green, environmentally friendly, washable paint. As pedestrians walked towards the crossing, they stepped on the green sponge, thus leaving green foot imprints on the canvas of the tree. Each ‘green’ footprint on the canvas looked like leaves growing on a bare tree, which made people feel that by walking they could create a greener environment.
The ‘Green Pedestrian Crossing’ was carried out across 7 thoroughfares in Shanghai. The campaign was then extended to 132 roads across 15 cities in China, with a participation exceeding 3,920,000 people.

Social Experiment of the Day: Ever freelance? The guys at Don’t Get Screwed Over want to make sure you understand the importance of binding legal agreements before any work commences, so they dreamed up a stunt in which random New Yorkers got to feel the pain of being stiffed out of their own money (as freelancers and small business owners so often are).
Lessons learned here: Get your paperwork in order, and New Yorkers can’t draw.
Newest character sculpt with 3/4 view. Hopefully she’ll be fully painted next week.
Lovelovelove! From her hair to the little ‘K’ on her jacket. Can’t wait to see what Jon does next.
Got to run into Johnny Cupcakes in SoHo at his Taste Makers Ice Cream Truck Tour pop-up shop today. I remember interviewing him for his first ever Suitcase Tour in 2010 and today was no different, with a line down the block for his latest release. He asked me how my writing has been doing since then haha.
He is hands down one of the most inspirational and creative people I’ve had the chance to meet. I even found an old Myspace (yeah, MYSPACE) fangirl message I wrote to him that he replied to back in 2008, and he is still the same dedicated guy that he is today. His passion is shown through every little detail of his line and that’s what I love the most. Sweetest dude ever.
