Tuesday TEA Time
I hope you had a good new year. I’m excited for 2018 and am happy to see 2017 go away. This is going to be a different newsletter: I am only linking to “art” related stuffs. For the past two weeks I’ve been following more artists online and spending less time reading through tech stuff and it’s really been pretty good for me. I recommend finding ways to spend more time looking at, listening to, or viewing art/design/books/etc if at all possible. I am more likely to feel like I’ve had a good day if I was able to spend some time reading, learning, or taking in something beautiful.
Good luck on 2018.

Gold Leaks By Vanderlei Lopes is a beautiful set of sculptures that really floored me. I absolutely love the foot prints one: scroll down the article to see that one.

This tweet directed me to the lovely work of Joseph Zbukvic. I am a sucker for this impressionistic style. I’ve also been to a few of the places that were painted and it really impacted me to see them in his style. There is also a link to a youtube video showing his process:

The portfolio of Sofia Bonati is gorgeous. I love the use of colour on a more stark, grey subject or background. It really jumps out and is so happy. Browse around and I’m sure you’ll find something you love as well. The ones titled ‘Rain’ are just wonderful. Found via Jocelyn K. Glei’s newsletter.

And finally, I am going to link you to a talk that was given at The Moth. They are a non-profit that gets people together to tell stories and makes a lot of them available online. From their website: “Moth stories are true, as remembered by the storyteller and always told live.”
When The Wife and I were driving from VA to CA years ago we had queued up many episode’s of The Moth’s podcast and this story had us both crying. I’m pretty sure we pulled over and just sat in the car for a bit. I re-listened to it for the first time last week and it devastated me again. Don’t listen to this story if you don’t have time to cry.
