Next week = sprrrinnnnng! (in my hemisphere.) I’m pretty excited because this winter has felt… well… super long.
And now! Some links. And this week it appears to be predominantly art-oriented.
Alma Haser: Within 15 Minutes
“Alma photographed sets of identical twins and made them into identical jigsaw puzzles. She then swaps every other piece of their puzzles, completely mixing them half and half.”
This is some quite beautiful work.
Josef Schulz: Sign out
“Photographer Josef Schulz created striking images of something typically mundane to most Americans, by taking deadpan photos of roadside corporate signage and removing all branding and text. It is a curious comment on how forms and graphics work together to make something as a whole.”
Exhibit portfolio here.
Diana Sudyka: Postage Stamp Storybook Scenes
“Chicago-based Illustrator Diana Sudyka uses vintage stamps from Europe as the starting point for fanciful paintings created using gouache, ink, and watercolor.”
Not included on the artist’s website.
This is a weird, 3D-rendered, multiplayer online version of the board game Monopoly.
It’s buggy (the creators even tell you that) but it’s neat.
Invite your friends!
And that’s what I’ve got for you. That’s it. No more. Okay? God!
Happy Friday everybody!
Happy Friday! And welcome to your Friday Links.
Disco’s glory days were a kaleidoscope of yes
“Emerging from its urban working-class origins in the early 1970s, disco got real big real quick.”
This feels much longer ago than I was expecting.
Don’t Call Me Oscar (2018)
They’re back. 🙂 A family recreates still images from the current crop of oscar-nominated films. Cleverly done.
Little Quill Studios
Rachel Beltz is an illustrator who works at a teeny tiny visual scale.
Some great work here.
A pretty challenging, weird, funny, cleverly designed little 2-player game. Fun!
Unbelievable Latte Art
Including, pictured here, 3D animals.
They don’t say how long each of them take to make but holy crap: some incredibly talented, patient people make these things.
This has been your Friday Links, for Friday March 9th, 2018.
Have a great (daylight savings) weekend. See you in a week!
And welcome to March. That was fast.
Six Degrees Of Wikipedia
You can see the interconnections between really different topics, people, places, etc.
What a great idea!
Dogs In Food
Some great photography that maps the faces of several breeds of pooches into carefully photographed culinary delights.
Yes, of course, there is an Instagram.
Jelly Mario Bros.
It’s not really the game it’s just… you’ll see. 🙂
If it’s possible, it’s even harder than normal Flappy Bird.
And this concludes the Friday Links!
Happy Friday! And have a lovely weekend.
