I’ve wanted to create a handwritten blog for some time now. The subject matter has unfortunately eluded me.
Today I stumbled upon a website titled, “Memories of a Girl I Never Knew.” It’s beautifully simple, and all done by hand.
There’s just something elegant about a website that showcases handwritten text only.
More and more adults are buying coloring books. Why? Because it’s trendy.
That’s not the only reason, though. Coloring is a very therapeutic activity, which is an adult way of saying it’s mindless and pleasurable.
We adults are stressed out. We need cheap therapy. Thus the return of coloring.
Adults are stupid, let’s be honest.
One more thing…
The picture above is Creemore Springs Brewery in Canada. I looked it up online after I colored about 80% of the page and discovered the company’s official color is actually light blue, not yellow. That’s the beauty of coloring, though. In my world, Creemore Springs is yellow.
My son is five months old, but his abstract art is amazing.
Ok, his daycare teacher may be more responsible for the arrangements than him.
What can I say, I’m a proud dad.
Need a little energy boost? Feeling down? Well, here’s something that might help you out.
Pharrell Williams has created a song that almost instantly makes you feel happy. It’s conveniently titled, “Happy”. It’s also had a lot of air time so chances are you know what I’m talking about.
However, did you know that Pharrell also made a 24 hour long music video to accompany the song?
This isn’t just a fantastic video. The website itself is amazingly simple and elegant, just like the overall concept.
Next time you’re having a bad day, just visit 24 Hours of Happy and turn your frown upside down.
The British Library uploaded over one million images ready for free use. Gems like the one above can be downloaded and used without copyright infringement. The collection has some interesting old school pics, so get downloading.
Poul Lange, author of The Book of Holes, has a good eye and a steady hand for collage making. His most recent set of illustrations were produced for Storied Sips, a liquor recipe book and more.
If you ever find yourself needing (or yearning) to destroy an image, and you just can’t muster up the time to do it well, don’t panic. Just go to Image Glitch.
