Today is full of awesome

Sometimes, so many awesome videos land in your lap in a single day - you just have to share them all at once. These are ridiculously unrelated except that they all super awesome.

First off, Empire State of Pen by Patrick Vale - a beautiful time lapse of Patrick drawing lower Manhattan as seen from the ESB - his details are stunning

Here's a heart tugging, smile inducing moment - the kind these reality talent shows are really made for. Meet Lucy Spraggan - a 20 year old English musician the world fell in love with on her X Factor audition. 

Not up for heart tugging? How about HILARIOUS. Any video with 80 millions views is pretty old news, but I can't help but share anyways. Too. Funny. 'Gangnam Style' by PSY is practically guaranteed to make you laugh at least a little, and far more catchy than you expected (2 hours later).

Here's a nice middle ground of adorable and awesome. Things certainly have changed since I was hanging out on the playground eating snacks. "Hot Cheetos and Takis" by YNRichKids = awesome. Apparently Washington Post and Rolling Stone agree. SNACK, SNACK, SNACK... MUNCH

Great thoughts and comments on trends, influencers, and the current design culture.

I particularly like minutes 7-10 talking about the tipping point of new/trendy/cool to mainstream and the relevance of brands as influencers with the distance from a large brand to actual trending culture.

12 Drawings a Day

Illustrator Denis Chapon's 12 Drawings A Day: An Animated Story

This is stunning. Chapon drew 12 drawings a day, the equivalent of one second of video frames, each day for three years and ended up with this beautiful video.

Object Architecture

Amazing video creating various architecture landmarks out of objects such as books, bowls, knives and even a wig. For any architecture lover, this is pretty great. Created by Luis Urculo.
