Lunch Bag Gone Art Work

Sandwich Art

David Laferriere has been drawing illustrations on his kid’s sandwich bags since 2008. While he won’t win the go-green award, he sure deserves the creative dad of the year award. Made me smile! Make sure to see the entire Flickr set.

(thanks Keef)

LEGO Vines

The launch of Vine, the Instagram of video, has been fascinating to watch over the past few weeks. Obviously everyone is trying to figure out what works, but users like Mark Weaver sure found a unique way to play with the format. His LEGO Vines are my personal favorites. Imagine a stop motion art project using Lego bricks and Vine. See the growing archive over on

Oliver Jeffers

Oliver Jeffers is my personal children’s books author hero, and I am lucky enough to know him as a friend. He just made this incredibly charming author video public. Well done, Mac Premo!

I wish I could see a video like this of my parents or grandparents, when they were young…

So happy to see that Gestalten did this video feature on Brooklyn based Oliver Jeffers. He is a fantastic illustrator, artist and overall thoughtful and kind person.

Jenni Sparks’ sketchbook might have just pushed me over the edge. Time to dust off and reactivate my sketchbook tonight.

A beautiful new print by Stina Persson.

This Moose Belongs To Me

Whenever Oliver Jeffers publishes a new children’s book, I get giddy. This Moose Belongs to Me will certainly be found under our christmas tree. (The Incredible Book Eating Boy is one of our family favorites.)

My Ideal Bookshelf

I haven’t been this excited about a book in a while: My Ideal Bookshelf is all about the books that we choose to keep, as they can say a lot about who we are and how we see ourselves. In My Ideal Bookshelf, dozens of leading cultural figures share the books that matter to them most; books that define their dreams and ambitions and in many cases helped them find their way in the world.

Some of my contributor highlights include Christoph Niemann, Stefan Sagmeister, Alec Soth, Gina Trapani, Maira Kalman, Malcolm Gladwell, Oliver Jeffers, Paola Antonelli and John Maeda. See the full list of contributors here

The book includes dozens of colorful and beautifully hand-rendered images of book spines by the lovely Jane Mount.

Preorder your copy!

English Is Not Easy

English Is not Easy is a beautifully illustrated guide to the English language by Luci Gutiérrez. I unfortunately couldn’t find a place that sells it online. I would love to get my hands on a copy.


I fully agree with Marc Johns.
