Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #136

Start your Monday off right:

  1. My friend and I shared an $18 cab ride in order to try In-N-Out and the burger, thankfully, lived up to the hype. The I Am A Food Blog took on the challenge of replicating the legendary burger. The recipe for the famous spread is worth it alone for your next bbq. 
  2. I stumbled upon Kane Hopkins's feed on a recommendation from a fellow photographer and was blown away. His portraits are visually simple but emotionally complex. 
  3. The street artists, Vhils, doesnt use the common tools of a brush and paint but rather a chisel to use the layers underneath the wall to create his stunning art. This is more remarkable considering he often "paints" multi-story buildings. 
  4. Chris Glass created the collaborative project, PhotoScouting, as a way to improve his photography as well as learn more about the city of Cincinnati. The core of the project is the photowalks which are now attended by a large group of people.  
  5. "YOU MAKE ALL KINDS OF MISTAKES, BUT AS LONG AS YOU ARE GENEROUS AND TRUE AND ALSO FIERCE, YOU CANNOT HURT THE WORLD OR EVEN SERIOUSLY DISTRESS HER."
    Winston Churchill
  6. Ariel Wilson's bold pastel color palette works perfectly with her often simple illustration to form a great visual style. I discovered her work from an interview in Lagom magazine.

  7.  Gianluca Pardelli coach surfed his way through post-Soviet Central Asia and the Southern Siberian States. He returned with an amazing set of images. 

  8. Modern life is designed to destroy boredom. We carry around a device which grants us a magical key to the entire world. Yet, boredom is vital for creative projects. Creative work is not a factory but has seasons which require empty space. 

  9. Failure in the framework of an experiment is not the end of the idea but rather a data point which could provide the key to actual success. Ideo, one of best design company in world, released 8 ways to fail your way to success
