Lisa Frank and Her Rainbow World Exist

Growing up I was obsessed with Lisa Frank.  Her rainbows, hearts and unicorns were my favorite and I couldn’t get enough of stickers, stationary and folders.  Her iconic look is instantly recognizable and just a glimpse brings back many childhood memories.  It turns out Lisa Frank and her rainbow world actually do exist.

Check out the video below for an interview of the artist, and a look into her world headquarters, along with a peek at some original art — real illustrations and airbrush art.  So amazing!

Queen Andrea was hired by Mohawk Group, the largest US manufacturer of designer carpet and flooring, to create “street art” inspired carpets using her own art as graphic motifs for carpet tiles. This collaboration included an exciting large scale time lapse video of her mural collage work, which was built into a 30-foot long wall in the Mohawk showroom at the prestigious NeoCon tradeshow in Chicago.

André x Orangina

One of my favorite refreshing beverages is Orangina — and it’s the latest beverage brand to team up with an artist to come up with some snazzy packaging to build some hype, hype, hype. Starting September 2, Colette will exclusively sell a collector’s box set. If you find that you need some artistic refreshment, head on over to Colette.fr in September to get yours.

Video: You Are What You Ride

cyclemon you are what you ride

I came across a series of bicycle images and video called Cyclemon on Fubiz and had to share. Basically, designers Thomas Romain and Bourdieux Pomarelle defined the type of person that rides different bikes. I love this series because one of my favorite things to do. Apparently, I’m a freestyler because my bicycle of choice is a BMX bike. And no, it’s not because I do tricks, I just like low-riding. What bicycle personality are you??
