Deep in New York’s Hudson River Valley, craftsman David Rees—the world’s number one #2 pencil sharpener—still practices the age-old art of manual pencil sharpening. In 2010, he began offering his artisanal service to the world, to the jubilation of artists, writers, draftsmen, and standardized test takers.
Now, in a book that is both a manifesto and a fully-illustrated walk-through of the many, many, many ways to sharpen a pencil, he reveals the secrets of his craft. By the time you’re through this book, you will know how to get the perfect point on your pencil without injuring yourself. And if you think it’s a joke, why don’t you poke yourself with your newly sharpened pencil? Or better yet, don’t—because it’ll really hurt.
James Kuhn is an artist from Michigan that self-described himself as a retired drag queen, white face clown, former nudist, born again Christian, and your average 46 year old guy. James creates some of the most incredible face paintings you’ll ever see. After attending Burning Man in Nevada, James completely changed the way he thinks about art and the way he makes it. He started a “365 transformations” project that consisted of him painting his face every day for a year.
“Forcing yourself to create art daily is a wonderful experience. Art should never be a product. It should be a gift of love and a prayer. Art is silly, and fun, and can be powerful and sacred. I do show in galleries, but selling should never be your motivation for creating art.” – James Kuhn
James claims face painting is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to him. His main tools of the trade are Kryolan Aqua Color, Snazaroo, and Paradise by Mehron. Currently Kuhn is on his 2nd 365 project working towards his goal of 1,000 face paintings. To stay updated with James, feel free to check out his website bibleartwork.com and Flickr account. Enjoy!
This awesome residence, named the ‘WFH House’, was developed by a Denmark based architecture firm called Arcgency. Their team focuses on designing and building sustainable architecture while contemplating the life-cycle and reusability. By using old shipping containers as structural framework, the WFH House’s framework can adapt to local challenges such as climate and earthquake issues.
The WFH concept is a patented modular building system, based on a design principle, using 40 feet high standard modules as structural system. The structure can be configured to meet many different purposes like multi story, townhouses, cluster houses or individual villas.
