I marched in NYC today. It was peaceful, kind, massive and filled me up with hope.
Hey world, where are you all marching tomorrow?
— Tina Roth Eisenberg (@swissmiss) January 20, 2017
I will be marching at the Women’s March in NYC tomorrow, proudly wearing our three custom Tattly that we did in partnership with the Women’s March on Washington. A team of volunteers will distribute them at the march in Washington, D.C. and New York City on Saturday, Jan 21st. More information on how you can get your hands on them here.
Big thanks to my Tattly team members Yng, Arianna, Hayden and Cristina for pulling this all off last minute.
Immense gratitude to our portrait sitters: Miss Info, Rana Batyske, Helene Begun, Lucien Zayan, David Loftis, Sharon McClendon, Sally Rumble, Calvin Harris, Sarah Megan Thomas, Paola Antonelli, Ken Leung, Lenore Diglio, Divya Gadangi, Catherine Morris, Tina Roth Eisenberg, Sara Raza, Cristina Gómez, Celine Semaan Vernon, Eugenie Tsai, Joanna Goddard, Hillary Frey, Khin Mai Aung, Lisa Cifuentes, and Estelle Bailey-Babenzien
Each year the fine folks of Hiut Denim compile a list of 100+ Makers And Mavericks, the one hundred+ people that got them to utter those words ‘I wish I had done that, made that, invented that, thought like that, changed that’. These are the people who shone the brightest for them back in 2016!
(Gah! I am included!)
“Schedule daily “white space” in your calendar, where your only task is to think or take a walk and daydream. When you try to generate ideas, shoot for 100 instead of 10. Defer your own judgment and you’ll be surprised at how many ideas you have—and like—by the end of the week.”

Mr. Rogers Introduces Kids to Experimental Electronic Music by Bruce Haack & Esther Nelson (1968). Made me smile.
Any architect will tell you that, structurally, a triangle is the strongest geometric shape. Architect Kengo Kuma has taken this wisdom and rendered it into a playful and interactive building set. I’d love to play with these.
Mmuseumm is a curated display of artifacts housed in a NYC freight elevator. The museum fits 3 people at a time. I love this so much. Find it at 4 Cortlandt Alley in lower Manhattan, New York City.
My motto for this week with marches happening all around the world. Thanks Dallas Clayton.
Wow, this archive of Women’s March protest signs is impressive. So many good ones to chose from. (You can download them and tile-print them on your home printer or download a high-res pdf to have printed at your local print shop.)
“… It’s taken us 100,000 years to figure out that we are only as well off as the weakest ones in our tribe, and that connection and community and respect lead to a world that benefits everyone.
The irony of Dr. King’s holiday is that he surely believed that anyone could take on this calling, that anyone could organize, speak up and stand for justice.
We can connect, we can publish, we can lead. Anyone reading this has the ability to care, and to do something about it. We have more power than we dare imagine.
And so it bends.”
… and it bends toward justice, by Seth Godin
Photographer Philippe Halsman believed that when you ask a person to jump, his/her attention is mostly directed toward the act of jumping and the mask falls so that the real person appears.
More photos of jumping celebrities over on Kottke.
Absolutely smitten with this wall mirror by Hunting & Narud. Counterbalanced by a weight, it can be adjusted to various heights.
