Inspiring Mondays 008: New year-New Sketchbook

Inspiring Mondays is a biweekly roundup of all the things that inspired me in the previous two weeks and that I’d love to share with you!

New year-New sketchbook!

I received a very special gift for christmas: A sketchbook from The sketchbook project! I have a year to complete it and send it back to The Brooklyn Art Library in Williamsburg.
The sketchbook will then be categorized and displayed in the library for anyone to flip through! This amazing  project is a global, crowd-sourced art initiative with traveling exhibition of handmade books.
The perfect to start the new year!
For this 8th inspiring monday, and first one of the year, I decided to take a look at some inspiring sketchbooks from their digital library.
Follow the links as you listen to Theo Bass’s Mr Stellakis (Also the tune I used for last year’s animated holiday card)

I gotta confess! I’ve been looping Pharrell William’s “Happy” all week while working. Not usually my cup of tea, but there’s something about this song!

He’s mad enough to make the first ever 24 hour interactive music happy, Check it out on
24hoursofhappy.com, and i’m mad enough to make this 7th Inspiring Monday Striped and Happy!

We’re touring the world with colored tiles in London, traditional weaving in Peru, a quick stop at the tulip farms in the Netherlands and back to Italy for an awesome urban street intervention, a happy rainbow tunnel, and last but not least Lisa Congdon’s colorful illustrations.

Inspiring mondays 005: Mural and sounds

I have a new mural to work on this coming Saturday. Needless to say I’m very excited about that! It’s on a small wall in my friend’s apartment.

As I was researching some inspirational colors, I pinned down the great work of Sonia Delaunay’s textile art, and an amazing 1945 mobile by Calder. I also discovered the work of Luli Sanchez and Melissa Thomson, and got introduced to a great project (Project thirty-three) through this 1966 Record design.

I’m probably going to need a good long playlist to paint to this Saturday. Send me your suggestions! On the top my list are this week’s new discoveries: Safe by Hussein Sherbini and the “Hello, Psychaleppo!” new launch album, mixing traditional Tarab and electronic sounds ! (you can listen and download it here).

Cheers!

Inspiring mondays 003: Keep your summer in a cup!

Inspiring Mondays is a bimonthly roundup of all the things that inspired me in the previous two weeks and that I’d love to share with you!

If you were in Beirut this weekend, you probably experienced our first rain of the season. But nope, summer isn’t over yet! At least not in my exhibition next Friday that will extend your summer by one more month!

(Join me for a summery drink at “Keep you summer in a cup!” Opening this Friday 27th at 6pm, at Oddfish Beirut.
http://www.facebook.com/events/222075451284653/)

This week, I handpicked special summer illustrations that inspired my work, as well as a poster of a party that I’ve been to in the summer of 2009 in Paris, and which still inspires me today. Julien Vallée’s work is breathtaking, and if you don’t know him, you should check him out! Another special feature this issue is a beautiful short logo animation also inspiring in my animation work!
