Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #194

Start your Monday off right:

  1. Jodi Ettenberg quit her job as a lawyer to travel for a year and is now celebrating her 10 year anniversary of traveling. These are her favorite blog posts over the past 10 years
  2. Rosa de Jong creates these delightful tiny miniature houses built on cork "cliffs" and hangs them so they appear to float in the frame. I love see part of the building process on her Instagram account. 
  3. A stunning video of the Dolomite region in northern Italy. Hold on while I check the price of flights and pack my camera. 
  4. Visarute Angkatavanich takes portraits of Siamese fighting fish, commonly referred to as a Beta fish. The colors and movement of the fish render the photographs more like paintings than anything else.   
  5. Sebastian Magnani used a round mirror to create these dual landscapes by pairing the ground vegetation and the reflective scene in the mirror. 
  6. "What you think is attainable is just a function of what you know at the moment…Remember that great expectations create great capabilities. If you limit your goals to what you know you can achieve, you are setting the bar way too low.”    Ray Dalio
  7. I love Thomas Danthony's illustration style. He combines bold colors with a minimalist approach which works brilliantly. 
  8. You may not recognize the name Tinker Hatfield but he is responsible for many of Nike's iconic shoes including most of the Jordans. He sat down for a great interview about his work and process. 
  9. The Do Lectures is a great event in Wales bringing together a diversity group of people doing interesting work. They just released videos of all the talks from this year's event. These were the 32 lessons learned from this year's Do Lecture
