11 | It's That Thing Where...: 26 Words You Really Wish Existed in English. It’s true, English has given the world untold verbal riches, but even Shakespeare would have struggled to articulate the idea "someone with a face that needs to be slapped" with a single, elegant word. So London-based Irish illustrator Fuchsia Macaree re-imagines the alphabet, showing logophiles words they never knew they needed. "Untranslatable" goes A to Z with words that are just that from a medley of languages--and it’s truly a wonder we’ve been able to get by without these gems in English. Ever been the victim of a barber turned butcher with what was supposed to be a simple haircut? The Japanese call that hot mess of tress "age-tori. " Finally, we can all start saying what we mean!

Septiembre 29, 2013 at 5:14pm0 notas En la casa de Miguel Ángel Rojas La revista AXXIS me pidió hacer un perfil del artista colombiano Miguel Ángel Rojas, años atrás había tenido el placer de conocerlo pero no de fotografiarlo, desde entonces tenia la duda de como sería su casa. Siendo él una persona tan meticulosa con su trabajo no podía parar de imaginarme como podría diseñar su espacio personal. Cuando le comente la idea de fotografiar su casa me recibió con una tasa de te de jazmín y la mejor frase que un buen anfitrión puede decir : “Esta es tu casa”.

La casa esta llena de su obra y la de sus amigos. Miguel Ángel Rojas en su estudio.

Arte: If children’s drawings were made into toys… Email There is a studio which creates soft toys based on children’s drawings that their parents send in. Once completed, parents can buy these toys for their children, which I think is a very interesting concept and business model. But what is more interesting is seeing these weird creatures that come “alive” as toys. Leave your comment!

Postcard Birthday Poster DIY. May 26 This project is part of a campaign I’m doing with Yahoo!

Mail on different ways to keep in touch with family and friends. I had wanted to recreate an easier version of this big project I did for Aubrey last year and this seemed like the perfect time.

My dad and I talk a lot about the past---nostalgia runs in our blood, I think---and we both love to reminisce. Inspired by Jordan Ferney's Postcard Birthday Poster, I started batting around an idea: what if I could get everyone from my dad's past to contribute a memory they had of him? What if I had all those people send their memories to me, and then I put each one into an envelope---sixty total, of course---and had him open them, one by one, on his birthday? That would be a lot of memories, right? So I wrote an email. I sent it to family, to friends, to aunties and uncles we'd grown up calling aunties and uncles even though they weren't related by blood.

Hello everyone! If you're receiving this email, you probably know that our dad, Patrick Burns, is turning 60 next month (much as he would hate us to be reminding everyone, I'm sure.) And this is where you come in! Thank you so much again. Recent posts. Balloons and Balloon Lights. LikeCOOL, Coolest Gadget Magazine.
