Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #113

Start your Monday off right: 

  1. I wish Seoul Waffle Pizza existed around me because I would destory a few slices of waffle pizza after a late night shift at Trader Joe's. 
  2. Salman Khoshroo employs a palette knife and gobs of paint to create beautiful portraits which lack the finer details of human form but remain highly expressive. 
  3. The beauty of rainy day in the city not overlooked by painter, Mike Barr. Looking at the dark moody color palette, you can always hear the car tires driving through the puddles.
  4. Scattered throughout Scotland, fameous stones used to test the strength of countless men of past generations lay unceremoniously on the side of roads and in fields. Rogue Fitness explores the hisotry of these stones and the Highland Games in a great documentary entitled, Stoneland.   
  5. "I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it." —Pablo Picasso
  6. Fascinating conversation between Seth Godin and James Altucher on How to Make What You Want For A Living

  7. The letterpress process continues to spark my curiosity. I love the variation of the ink hitting the paper and the old machines. Alan Kitching's work is a perfect example of what I love about the medium. 

  8. Mike Rhode uses an interesting method of scheduling out his day. Each task is given its own patterned block so you can visually see the entire day at a glance. 

  9. Jon Westenberg breaks down How To Invest in Yourself. It's a great framework to design what you will invest your time in during this upcoming year. Don't come up with a few resolutions and hope you will stick with them but actually have a plan to accomplish specific tasks or acquire particular skills.

  10. Taming the Mammoth: Why You Should Stop Caring What Other People Think. It may seem like a funny title but Tim Urban breaks down how and why that voice in your head is constantly trying to keep you save. And how the illusion of safety stifles our authentic voice which is trying to find a way of expressing itself.
