Creative Links of the Week #21


Did you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with fun, family and food? We sure did. Now it’s time to sit back and relax while reading another edition of Creative Links of the Week! Next week, some of us will be on the road to experience Art Basel firsthand in sunny Miami. Can’t wait to report from there so watch for those posts. Until then, my friends.

Around the Web:

Not sure if this is Banksy, but it’s sure brilliant.

Broken light bulb! Neat.

A mountain lodge with a sloping roof that you can ski over? Sign me up.

An interesting read. How to lead a creative life. (Lesson: Respect the past.)

I want to ride in a Kate Spade taxi.

Love these subtly sexually charged illustrations.

UNICEF x Threadless.

A cookbook that’s coming. (Can’t wait.)

Christmas vinyl toys. (For the kid inside of you.)

Did you see it? Tim Burton’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade balloon.

Best of My Modern Met:

Artist Sandy Skoglund has quite the imagination.

Take that, pepper spraying cop!

Words we can all live by.

Stunning silhouettes that are just asking you to travel.

Oh to be 19 again and have this much talent.

As always, keep up with My Modern Met but following us on Twitter and Facebook. Hope you’re having an amazing long weekend!
