Pointe de la Parata, Corse, 22 août 2014  Only a few words and so many eloquent images (yes, crappy puns are my best asset) on  Vies à vies . Their Facebook page states it's a "photographic series started in 2008, built by two photographers as life goes along". The name "Vies à vies" means "Life to life" (as in "one life against an other") but it's also a pun on the expression "vis-à-vis" meaning "overlerlooking" in French. As you scroll through their blog, you see the lives of this couple from each others angle, literally, and the two pictures are always assembled one next to the other. I really like their images, and on top of it, the whole background being so smart only adds up to my liking.

I always love to see a behind-the-scenes of a mass consumption item. And this is how Crayola Crayon is made.

In a much more superficial record, these are coveted items for the new season.

Here's a non-exhaustive list of recently coveted things from the Internets

I have been drooling over these two objects from Kaufmann Mercantile for a looong while. I just picture myself living in the country side, checking the coop every morning and storing my freshly laid eggs in the  terracota rack  ! The  tube wringer  ? To soothe my obsession for getting the last drop out of everything

Some of my favorite illustrators #2

[[Christoph Niemann is a German illustrator, graphic designer, and author living in New York City, since 1997.

I have loved Christoph Niemann's work for as long as I can remember. 
When drawing, he draws clean line and uses solid color.

Niemann is excellent at mixing medias to best convey his ideas. But always with less-is-more in mind.

Though sticking to simple looking, almost naive illustrations, he always comes up with clever, straight-to-the-point concepts. 

Take a look at his excellent blog on the New York Times,  Abstract Sunday.
He's edited 16 chapters from his blog with an extra chapter on the creative process, it's available here.///

Christoph Niemann est un graphiste, illustrateur et auteur allemand qui vit à New Yok depuis 1997.

J'ai aimé le boulot de Christoph Niemann dès que je l'ai découvert, mais ça je ne sais plus à quand ça remonte... 
Quand il dessine, sa ligne est claire et il utilise la couleur en aplat.
Niemann c'est aussi savamment mixer les outils pour véhiculer ses idées, et toujours dans un esprit "less-is-more".

Bien que simples en apparence, presque naïves, ses illustrations sont toujours malines avec des concepts qui vont droit au but. 

Je vous conseille l'excellent blog qu'il tient sur le New York Times,  Abstract Sunday.
Il a édité 16 chapitres de son blog avec un chapitre bonus sur le processus créatif. Le bouquin s'appelle "Abstract City" et il est disponible ici.]]
