Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #177

Start your Monday off right:

  1. I have no idea how someone becomes the "Paper Airplane Guy" but John Collins managed to achieve my 9 year old goal. He shows you how to fold a couple different paper airplanes that will beat the pants off your normal plane. 
  2. Luca D'Onofrio creates 29 different handmade pastas. You could tell he has made more pasta then he can probably remember as each hand motion seems drilled to perfection.
  3. Tomiyasu Hayahisa photographed a ping pong table in a public park across from his dorm room through out the year. I love how people used the table for various uses often in keeping with the respective season. .
  4. I absolutely love the look of infraded photography which captures the infraded spectrum of light which is invisible to the naked eye.  Paolo Pettigiani captures the stunning Dolomites in this manner. 
  5. This is a list of the "quietest" (aka least traveled) road in each state. I can easily see someone doing a photo series on these roads.  
  6. "I would stand and look out over the roofs of Paris and think, "Do not worry. You have always written before and you will write now. All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know."  
    Ernest Hemingway
  7. "The End of the Road" is a perfect title for Andrea Pugiotto's series on Alaska. The tremendous beauty of nature goes hand in hand with the struggle to survive and make ends meet. 

  8. The light from the rising (or setting sun) creates these gorgeous pink and purple hues on the cold mountains of the Arctic Norway. I cant imagine how cold Maya Beano was when she captured this images. 

  9. I love how the amount of paint used to create each portrait adds a dimension of shadows which transform each image in Mathieu Laca's paintings. Absolutely brilliant work. 

  10. Austin Kleon's talk at Bond 2018 is a must watch for all creatives as he offers advice on how to push your work forward in the tough times. I love his idea that creative work is like Ground Hog's Day.
