Too many corners in my mind

Today I'd like to feature an artist by the name of Manoli Lopez. She's from Barcelona, her art is amazing, and she has pretty good taste in music, from what I gathered on her blog.

I need to find a way to get a giant print of this for my place. Seriously, brilliant.

The other thing I'd like to showcase today is an amazing video by animator/illustrator Javier Cuello. The title translates to "the house in small cubes" - and you'll see the significance of the title. The video is so cute and charming, yet deeply touching and quite sad. It's also a great metaphor for life and the trials we face as humans. I encourage you to watch the whole thing (it runs about 12 minutes, but I enjoyed every moment.)

  1. I can relate very deeply to "The House in Small Cubes." I feel like I'm moving from one Small Cube that I have been building for the last year-and-a-half to another right now, and it is an exhilarating (yet challenging) transition. I like the imagery of the flood forcing the move from one cube to another, too--that's the (unpredictable) nature of life. Thanks for posting this - it is very inspiring!

    Your blog is such a nice reprieve from the demanding (and at times, quite frankly, boring) course load of dental school. I know I can always go here to find inspiration and exercise the atrophied right side of my brain. Keep the posts coming!

  2. Will do, miss. Tell your friends! I wouldn't mind having a following in Boston, haha.
