Another Sloth for the Road

I've been on a roll lately with the sloth paintings for Silicon Valley Open Studios next month. Some are more fun than others just because of the addorability factor and I would say that this is one of them.  

He is missing the earring in this iPhone image, but it is there in person now.

The Coffee Monsters

Instagram is a great place to discover new artists and creatives and interestingness, and as I'm bummed they will be changing their feed, I know I'll still embrace the platform as a place to show and discover new work.

The Coffee Monsters is one such case. Take a spill (sometimes intentional, sometimes not), and make it in to something new. I mean, isn't that what we search for in creativity, taking something existing and combining it with something else to make something that didn't previously exist?

You can see more of the work by checking out Stefan's feed and the Coffee Monster website.

Cheers.

Thomas "Dambo" Winther and Wonderful Creativity

In another instance of beautiful creativity, we have these birdhouses. Beginning with a 2008 project in Denmark, Thomas Dambo used recycled and donated materials to create 250 birdhouses within the city. This gives the birds shelter as they are, he says, wonderful at recycling themselves.

Clearly if you wander around his site looking at the different birdhouses the project has grown, and clearly others are supporting his efforts, but how can you not smile at those that are camouflaged and turned in to birds as well.

This was a wonderful article found on Design You Trust as I'm slowly getting my coffee legs under me this Easter morning. Cheers!
