Women’s March + Tattly

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

100+ Makers And Mavericks – 2016

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!)

Tsumiki Stacking Blocks

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.

Tiny Museum Housed in NYC Freight Elevator

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.

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.)

Jump

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.

Feelings

For three weeks, Nate Milton wrote down any thought, image or memory that gave him a tingly feeling. He animated the list, and what it accidentally became was a stream-of-consciousness trek through his life. Beautiful!

5 Emails Folders

This is an interesting new approach to deal with your inbox. Zach Hanlon organizes everything that lands in his inbox in 5 folders:

Inbox: the inbox is a holding pen. Emails shouldn’t stay here any longer than it takes for you to file them into another folder. The exception to this rule is when you respond immediately and are waiting for an immediate response.

Today: Everything that requires a response today.

This Week: Everything that requires a response before the end of the week.

This Month/Quarter: – Everything that needs a longer-term response. Depending on your role, you many need a monthly folder. Others can operate on a quarterly basis.

FYI: Most items I receive are informational. If I think I may need to reference an email again, I’ll save it to this folder.

So, instead of organizing your emails by Subject Line, this system organizes by due date. I am tempted to give this a try. He also says that if your work is project-based you can create this five-folder system for each project. Totally makes sense.

Keith Jarrett

I just bought tickets to see Keith Jarrett perform at Carnegie Hall on February 15th. I am thrilled and currently listening to his famous Köln concert. Do you love solo piano? If so, who are our favorites?

How to put on a duvet cover

Now, this was useful. But I doubt it will work with a thick down comforter like I have. I’ll give the burrito method a try though!
