Stumbled upon Chris Labrooy's awesome 3D digital designs on

Love how he plays with these shapes to make inanimate objects explode with exaggerated, colorful sculptures.

This photo needed to be posted as soon as my eyes could take it in.

I dedicate it to the lovely Natalia Provatas and her puppet mastery and overall puppet love. She may have even emanated from the little girl, screen right, in this photo.
(at least in the glasses and elated expression).

In case you did not know this about me, I love ice cream very much. I don't particularly like cake, but that's not the point of this post. The point is that ice cream is joy. Pure joy. Which brings me to my latest reason to go on a trip to Europe - to visit this awesome new ice cream shop called "Eyescream and Friends" in Barcelona, Spain.

From what I can tell, it's the Mad Men of self serving/self decorating frozen desserts. With a classy and economical cardboard tray for storing your ice cream (categorized by adorable anthropomorphic designs), two toppings, and the real kicker - two sugar eyes that add a sense of childhood to your meal (yes ice cream can be a meal), it's a surefire way to make your heart flutter.

Overall, this shop screams perfection. Clean design, adorable marketing, customer customizable eating, and on top of all that - this is ice cream we're talking about!

Enjoy. I'm going to go cry into my Los Angeles frozen yogurt bar now.

Greetings Monday!

I have to share my new favorite portfolio-platform and creative-housing-site (not actual houses but a place where images, video, and text can coexist) called behance.  I may be late to the party, but I haven't heard many people buzzing about this so I thought I'd spread the good word here.

First off, it's an incredibly easy site to navigate and showcase your personal, creative work to a wide audience. I've been meaning to put together a reel for all my art direction stuff, but while I still have that on my bucket list it was easy to post my set photos here and get the majority of my work up onto a site for the world to see.  Once you sign up you have the ability to "follow" (much like everything else in our socially connected world) artists and professionals in your field so you always get a fresh look at what others like yourself are doing in these fields.

That being said, I bring to you tonight's lovely behance find; a man named David Schwen who has captured America's favorite pairs and shaped them into an even more discernible fashion of Pantone swatches.
I just got hungry for cake and ice cream. How about you?

While sifting through Elle Decor tonight I stumbled upon the work of Bill Brandt, a German-British photographer who is regarded by many as one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century.  Most notably recognized for his portrait and landscape work, he spent the early parts of the 1930's assisting Man Ray in Paris before settling in London where his career as a photojournalist would evolve.  Capturing the unusual aspects of the mundane London-living, his talent eventually lead him to publish two books and photograph for such London based magazines as Harper's Bazaar, Lilliput, and Picture Post.

(note: nudity will follow as you scroll)

According to MOMA, his crowning artistic achievement which developed between 1945 and 1961 "is a series of nudes that are both personal and universal, sensual and strange, collectively exemplifying the "sense of wonder" that is paramount in his photographs." I personally love this series for the way he framed and captured the different shapes and shadows of the female body.

An exhibition offering a deep dive into the pre and post-war photojournalism of Brandt will be available at the MOMA in New York starting March 6th-August 12th.  I recommend attending if you are a city dweller.  I'm jealous I can't see his beautiful work up close and in person, so please enjoy it and brag about it's greatness back here on the PP when you're done.
