Dad’s Illustrates With Each Day’s Lunch for Five Years

It’s difficult to not get nostalgic seeing these little lunches.  Graphic designer David Laferriere had already been making lunch for his children.  One morning he found a permanent marker near the sandwiches.  Five years later, Laferriere has drawn illustrations on nearly 1,100 of his children’s lunch bags.  Depending on his morning inspiration, Laferriere will draw a different image each morning – animals, robots, monsters, even images that play with the shape of the sandwich.  [via]

“Timestack” Landscape Photographs Create Incredible Skies

The colorful skies of Matt Molloy‘s photographs nearly seem built from dozens of chunky brush strokes.  However, these photographs are actually a type of time lapse photography which Molloy calls “timestacks”.  Molloy shoots several photographs of the same location or image over a specific period of time.  He then takes those photographs and merges them into one image.  For the timestack photographs featured here, Molloy merges huge amounts of images – up to 500 photographs for only one image!  [via]

Kris Kuksi’s Churchtanks

The work of artist Kris Kuksi has a decidedly consistent style.  His amazingly intricate sculptures are often dark, reference both the classical world and the industrial landscape, and comment on religion and politics.  His Churchtanks series, though, seems to especially encapsulate his philosophies.  Kuksi seamlessly fuses gaudy cathedrals with modern war tanks to create one imposing structure.  In a strange way, the aesthetics of each seems to compliment the other.  Kuksi effectively uses the structural blending to comment on a connection between religion and violence.

Gill Schneider And A Flying Circus

Paragliding Circus from shams on Vimeo.

Paraglider Gill Schneider had thought a while about arranging an unusual pair: his love of flying and the circus.  After the jump a video captures the combination.  At first Schneider incorporates his parachute into various circus acts.  Before long, though, he takes a performer into the air, juggling gliding over the beaches.  The highlight of the video, however, is trapeze artist Roxanne Gilliand.  Hanging below Shcneider, Gilliand gracefully performs high over a small lakeside town.  The pairing, though unlikely, is a fascinating one.

Matej Peljhan Uses Photography To Help Boy With Muscular Dystrophy Skateboard, Swim, And Dance

Photographer Matej Peljhan created these vividly imagined images with the help of twelve year old Luka.  Luka suffers from muscular dystrophy.  The muscle disease has severly limited Luka’s movement to mostly his fingers making even the most basic task difficult or impossible.  Luka worked with Peljhan to create photographs of fun activities that would usually be impossible for Luka to take part in.  Using simple props, Luka would be positioned on the ground as Peljhan shot the photographs from above.  The resulting images form a heartwarming series titled The Little Prince.  [via]

Hand Painted Weaponry Dishware By Trevor Jackson

Trevor Jackson‘s ceramic work is deceptively innocent.  Hand painted in blue, hidden behind animals, flowers, and flourishes are deadly weapons.  His work are definitely conversation pieces for an especially hot topic.  While his intentions with the pieces aren’t entirely obvious, the series is clearly political.  Typically utilitarian weapons are presented as garishly decorated and entirely harmless.  Dishware that is often passed down from generation to generation is stylized with politically intense imagery.

If you were similarly a nerd-child, this home library would have been better than any I could conjure.  Architect Moon Hoon designed this extremely family friendly house.  The spaces throughout the house are very versatile with this library being its highlight.  Embedded in the bookshelves is a wooden slide.  Also, the shelves double as tiered seating for the home theater.  Moon Hoon says of the feature:

“The multi-use stair and slide space brings much active energy to the house, not only children, but also grown ups love the slide staircase. An action filled playful house for all ages.” [via]
