Vivian Moves to Brooklyn

When I was a kid, I absolutely loved Clifford the Big Red Dog. There was something really amusing to me about something that’s supposed to be very small being completely enlarged. This photo series of Vivian the dog is pretty much the real life version of that. Before you ask if this is real… it’s not – don’t worry! Using Photoshop, Vivian’s owner, writer, illustrator, photographer, and director Mitch Boyer created this adorable photo series and a children’s book out of this project. The book is titled “Vivian the Dog Moves to Brooklyn” which is a true story of Vivian and Mitch’s moving journey that happened just a couple of years ago.

Knowing that each year over 5.5 million kids between the ages of one and nine move to a new home in the United States, Boyer decided to format the book as a tool to help children feel more comfortable during periods of relocation and transition. The 32-page book will feature Vivian as a six-foot-tall version of herself, adjusting to life in Brooklyn alongside Boyer and meeting some furry friends along the way.

Knitted Electronics

I have a certain knack for being attracted to really cute things that I find on the internet and this one stopped me dead in my tracks. Artist Jessica Dance is bringing to us some serious nostalgia with these knitted electronics and other things from our past and we just couldn’t not share them with you all. Can we just have one of these pieces to display them in our homes?! These pieces were photographed by food photographer David Sykes.

The National Museum Installs a 10,000 Square Foot Ball Pit

To give visitors the experience of being at a beach indoors, the National Museum filled a very large space with a white ball pit. The interactive installation titled, “The BEACH,” includes all of your favorite beach accessories with umbrellas, beach chairs, and floaties. The firm responsible for this installation, Snarkitecture, typically puts out pieces of work that blend a combination of both design and experience. The installation will call the National Museum in DC home through September 7th so if you have a chance to see it in real life, you definitely should!

Chunky Knits by Anna Mo

No one loves a chunky knit more than I do! When I spotted the chunkiest of chunky knits designed by Anna Mo, Istarted to imagine how wonderful it would be to just OWN one of these.

To knit these mammoth material works the Ukraine-based Mo not only uses extremely thick sections of wool, but also XXL needles to produce her three-inch-thick stitches.

These photographs can be silly, but I like seeing how they can be used as a blanket or even as an accessory piece to furniture.

Food in Pretty Gradients

Foodie photography is something that I never get tired of. There’s so many different things that you can do with it and even over the years, I still feel like I’ve never seen the same thing twice. I really loved this series by Seattle-based photographer Brittany Wright because of the color and the different stages of the food from when it looks its best and when it looks its worse and when you no longer want to eat it!

Seattle’s Water Activating Illustrations

My home is looking to make rainy weather fun again for locals by installing illustrations and games on sidewalks that only appear when it rains. Man, this guy looks so happy. This totally defines Seattle locals so much haha

The series “Rainworks” was designed by artist Peregrine Church and isn’t a new development. In fact, some of these illustrations started popping up in the city last year. Each installation was designed to be environmentally safe with a water-repellant coating that can keep the pieces lasting anywhere from 4 months to a year. How fun for everyone in Seattle!

Flowerworks:

I’ve been attracted to very romantic things on the internet lately so when I came across Sarah Illenberger’s series of flowers photographed to look like fireworks, I didn’t want to stop scrolling. They really are just as pretty as they sound. Illenberger is known for her work in photograph, graphic design, and the intersection of art. To purchase these prints for yourself, click here! I always said that I would consider myself a real adult when I could have fresh flowers in my home every week, does a print of what looks like fresh flowers count?
