"The art of portraying has its roots in showing important people, caressing their egos by making them more beautiful than they really are, as an accepted modus. To me, Goya is an early example of an artist who tried to portray people with their faults and therefore nibbled on their egos. Externalities are not being shown prettier as they really are. But still, regarding portraying kings and important people, not much has been changed since Goya’s days, we still focus on the ego and status." via

Ola Giertz takes a unique spin on kids furniture this piece was Inspired by an Armadillo and made for children & the coolest thing is the it can be locked in several different positions.
I was inspired by the Armadillo which is a small animal, known for having a leathery armor shell. Just like the animal protects itself from its surrounding, Armadillo can be folded out to “protect” the child and let it have its own space. Depending how much own space the child wants or need, you can put Armadillo in the right position that fits the best. Because its ability to reduce in volume, it can easily get out of the way and save some space. The chair is made from beech and walnut veneer, and designed to ensure that it flexes and supports the user, providing an unexpected level of comfort. via
I love the way Bradley Harms Harms addresses the ideas of surface, form, and our notion of perfection in his work.
This wonderful series of animations by Drew Tyndell added some joy to my dayswould be fitting after the past couple of days we just had here in Canada. Honestly everything is still a bit surreal. Ottawa is commonly known as a sleepy town, within 12 hours it has completely transformed. The city streets are now filled with news anchors and their crew instead of tourist.
The first time I saw these posters was when we were sitting in ches Boris a few weeks ago. I immediately thought " hmm that would look good on my office wall " then the food came & we forgot to grab one before we left. Now I'm happy to see that they are for purchase at inprint . They were designed by Ed Kwong a Montreal based Illustrator who has this really unique artistic style that I really like.
