Tinybop | Infinite Arcade

Team Tinybop did it again. They just launched Infinite Arcade and it’s blowing my mind! It basically allows you (or your little ones, of course) to create your own Arcade games. Start out with a classic game to build on and then add building blocks like hot lava, disco bricks, crystal, trampoline tiles etc. And, the best part: you can design your own characters. I know what I am doing this weekend! Get the game!

Small Steps Are Giant Leaps

This touching father-son photo project made my heart melt a bit: Aaron Sheldon documents his four year old son as he discovers the world wearing an astronaut helmet. The helmet symbolizing how astronauts are brave and face their fears, this little four year old braves and discovers the world astronaut style.

Sheldon is turning the series into a photo book. Get a copy by backing his Kickstarter.

My friend Wesley just launched his 10th visual essay in his One of Many series. This time highlighting the Austin creative community. So proud of him and how he is running with this project. So much respect!

The Misplaced Series by Anton Repponen removes notable New York buildings from their surroundings and “misplaces” them in desolate landscapes around the world. LOVE!

New Seymour Chwast Book Protests 5,000 Years of War

Design icon Seymour Chwast has used his art to battle war since 1957. His new antiwar book features 70 pages of original illustrations.

Seymour Chwast is a design legend. As co-founder with Milton Glaser of Push Pin Studios, he led a revolution in graphic design in the 1960s and ’70s, producing bold, vibrant work that pushed the limits of nearly every visual medium.

Now, he turns his pen and sketchpad toward creating a new book on a subject that has been a personal obsession for nearly six decades: the fight against war, humankind’s never-ending scourge. Definitely supporting this Kickstarter!

Sketching New York City Subway Stations

Philip Coppola is a man who loves New York’s subway stations so much that he’s spent the last 38 years sketching them in glorious detail with just a ball point pen. I admire this man’s patience and being in it for the long haul. We need more of this.

This Bouquet of Bacon Roses would win my heart. Immediately.

Titanic Sink in Real Time

The above video lets you watch the sinking of the Titanic in real time. According to the web site Titanic Facts, the ship sank in two hours and 40 minutes in 1912. And that’s precisely how long things take to unfold in the video above. Wow.

Scented Tattly – The Perennial Set

scented tattoos

I can barely contain my excitement over the launch of Tattly’s first scented tattoos. The Perennial Set launched yesterday, featuring sumptuous florals by French watercolor artist Vincent Jeannerot.

Their unique fragrance was created in collaboration with Agilex Fragrances, and includes notes of Dewy Fuchsia Petals, Pink Poppies, Ylang Ylang, and Poplar Wood. Next time, instead of a bouquet of flowers for that special someone, bring a Perennial Set instead.

Work at a fragrance house or beauty company? We also do custom tattoos with fragrance.

Slow and Steady

The older I get, the more I understand why my parents used to say that slow and steady wins. Nothing worthwhile can be rushed.

Are You A Master Freelancer?

Master Freelancer Award

Back in the day, when I was a freelancer, I remember how lonely I got at times. I missed getting feedback from team members. It was hard to get recognition and at the time I couldn’t afford (or justify) entering the prestigious awards that cost hundreds of dollars. That’s why CreativeMornings and FreshBooks launched the Master Freelancer Award: It is completely free. All you have to do is show the best piece of freelance work — the website you designed that bends the rules, the photo you took that made it on that billboard, the copy you wrote for the poster that went viral.

If you’re one of the three winners CreativeMornings will share your story and your work with their global audience in every corner of the Internet. Plus, you’ll receive a trophy AND a free FreshBooks subscription for one year.

Enter to win or suggest a freelancer over at freelancer.creativemornings.com

And, the Freelancer Award page, is curating a list of helpful articles, resources and talks for Freelancers.
