Blank Canvas!

Students at Ravensbourne College of Design in London have come up with an ingenious way to raise funds for their grad show, a project called Blank Canvas! Packages containing objects purchased in thrift shops were sent out to many of the students’ favourite designers and illustrators to act as blank canvases. The objects were customized by the recipients and sent back, and now the students are having an auction of the work on April 30th at the Vibe Bar on Brick Lane.

Not that impressed? Let me just rattle off a few of the 50+ artists/designers involved: Milton Glaser! Hellovon! Non-Format! Parra! Job Wouters! Andy J Miller! Julien Vallee! Alex Ostrowski! Stina Persson!

Head over to the Blank Canvas page to get on the guestlist if you want to attend the auction!

Motoi Yamamoto

Theme Magazine has kindly hooked me up with a subscription to their publication and if they hadn’t I might not have come across the amazing work of Motoi Yamamoto! Yamamoto uses salt to create large, insanely detailed, floor patterns. Pick up Theme (issue 18) to see way better photos of his work, and to read how he relates his work to keeping a diary.

17 creative websites to bookmark (unless you are dumb)!

At the risk of having you never come back to this site, I have compiled a list of 17 other sites to feed your creative appetite. Dozens more could have been added to this list (perhaps there will be a sequel to it). Most of the sites included here do not get the credit they deserve, and even the popular ones deserve even more attention. In no particular order:
