Playfully Interactive Paper Toys

Love these animated paper puppets by Japanese designer Haruki Nakamura.

The Pessimist’s Umbrella


The Pessimist’s Umbrella is for those who know that expecting the worst need not be cause for despair. The umbrella has a rainfall print on the inside, along with Seneca’s pessimistic aphorism: ‘What need is there to weep over parts of life? The whole of it calls for tears.’ Made me laugh.

Good Vibes hooks

Jon Burgerman

The story of Jon Burgerman from Bas Berkhout on Vimeo.

Jon Burgerman is a friend, creative workspace neighbor, a Tattly artist and my son’s creative idol. His most recent book It’s Great to Create spurred many super creative adventures in my house. If you have little ones, I highly recommend grabbing a copy!

Being a fan of all things Burgerman, I was delighted to see my friend Bas Berkhout working on a mini documentary on Jon. It JUST went live. It’s personal and oh-so-timely. Watch above!

And make sure to check out other mini documentaries in Bas’ series called Like knows Like. Here’s the one he did on me, years ago.

Tinker Friday

I am completely smitten by this collection of videos created by Dina Amin. On Fridays she picks a random product, disassembles it, examines it and makes a stop motion story with its parts. This is delightful!
