    I love Luca Barcellona’s work. <3

  • amazing stuff..bringing back d ol skool

  • this level of craftsmanship is absent from much of the work i see these days

  • this is like OMG !!

  • Jason

    can anyone tell me where to find nibs like that? especially that enormous “fin” tailed one in the first video?

  • jason

    Actually, went ahead and answered my own question after suffering from extreme *ahem* pen envy.
    The “fin tailed” one is called a folded ruling pen, and is actually quite easy to make yourself. the spear tipped one is just a ruling pen, and is around $45 most places i looked. the very broad tipped pen is an Automatic Lettering Pen, and appears to be a size 6A

    • yea i wanna find one of those wide tip ones! thanks jason

Artist Makes Street Repairs Using Gold

Brooklyn-based artist Rachel Sussman adapts the Japanese art of Kintsugi (golden joinery) or Kintsukuroi (golden repair) in her ongoing series “Sidewalk Kintsukuroi.” Traditionally used to fix broken pottery, gold or silver is used to embellish the repair as it is seen as part of the object’s history rather than something to hide.

In Sussman’s case, filling cracks in the pavement pays similar homage to the changes that have taken place in the world around us. See more images from the project below or on display at the Des Moines Art Center until May 5th.

France-based illustrator Debby Wu asked four Asian girls she follows on Instagram a series of personal questions and created an illustration for each based on their responses. The questions ranged from the kind of software they use most on their computers to how easily they feel insecure in love. See more from “Asian Girls Insecure” below.
