Donde ví crecer la hierba a nuestro lado
donde nos fumamos alguna también
ahora sólo puedo oir un eco extraño
de fantasmas que ríen.
Llueve, llueve como tinta transparente
llueve, llueve, y entre tanta confusión te puedo ver.
El río baja puro por el valle
y se pudre cuando llega a esta ciudad
hemos perdido las armas y las fuerzas
y cuando pregunto nadie puede contestar
¿Dónde está la revolución?
WEAR Sustain’s aim was to support creative and technology collaboration for the evolution of critical, ethical, sustainable and aesthetic wearable technologies, The scope included wearables and e-textiles worn on the body that may generate body data and/or data about your environment.
Wisp will be attending the WEAR Symposium - Final showcase on 21th November in Brussel.⠀
46 teams, funded by WEAR Sustain to collaborate across the arts and technology fields have innovated prototypes, focussed on improving ethics and sustainability practices within wearables, smart or e-textiles for the benefit of society, our planet and our future.
I couldn’t decide on these pieces whether the piece looked better with the added lines or without. I decided to do a poll on here to see what you guys preferred and overall the majority of people preferred the lines! I have also included the other versions of this piece including the starting process so you can see how it all started to come together!
Look at this cheery lot 😀 Enough to brighten anyone's commute to work! Fantastic creations made in Italy over The Big Draw Festival with this piece being part of a workshop @lagallerianazionale with photo taken by the lovely @nunziafatone 🙌
What I love about winter: more time spending indoor and creating beauty on a canvas. 🎨⠀
I can paint or draw for hours, completely soaked in my own world and music. I used to think it’s just a hobby, now I cherish my creativity and talent to create and translate something words can’t express. 💖💖💖⠀
Jazz on, tea ✔️, candles ✔️, snacks ✔️. Zooming out to let imagination take over.
A veces el atacazo artístico llega a las horas menos pensadas, anoche 2:45am en pijama, me dio por jugar con lo que tenía a mano (mi cámara el trípode y mi cel) y el resultado fueron unas cuántas fotos llenas de color que me gustaron bastante, tanto así que estoy pensando llevarla a otros escenarios. No hay excusas para crear.

I have A LOT of jeans.👖
But no matter how many pairs I own, I am always in the market for new ones (especially if they are on sale!)
And even though I could wear a different pair everyday for quite some time, I usually end up wearing the same couple of pairs.
I also take the less is NOT more attitude with subscribing to freebies & emails. I never want to miss the next big tip or the freebie that is guaranteed to make my life SO much easier! But then they pile up in my inbox, unread and taking up precious time and space.
Do you find yourself having thousands of emails to delete (I am asking for a friend!)? 😱 Instead of sticking with a handful of people/businesses you look to for information, your inbox is cluttered with emails that end up distracting, not helping.
Y'all, let's cleanup those inboxes. And maybe donate a few paris of those jeans! Less clutter, whether it is in our homes, closets or inboxes gives us the freedom to think more clearly!
So, how many pairs of jeans do you own?
"...in terms of health and personal fulfilment, the creative arts are so important" 🙌
We have a cracking interview with @unilincoln about their Big Draw + PLAY events this year and the importance of creativity in learning. From computer animation, kinetic bicycle drawing to drawing with Lego, @unilincoln allowed visitors to come together and express themselves creatively through a variety of workshops.
Come take a peek over on our site and find out more 🔍 www.thebigdraw.org/big-draw-blog 🖌️❤️✏️

Anonymous as the shadows
Running away like a cockroach
Thrifted treasure, sensible, sensible
One man’s trash is my potential, potential
Fluorescent stories, Greyhound buses
Drinkin’ on a forty, Cheap sunglasses
Holdin’ on tight to keep it loose, loose
Wrong or right, it’s the life I choose
Addicted to the move
Medusa dreams, spinning sidewalks
Brass lungs, filled with hard knocks
Kickin’ cans, kitsch tattoos, tattoos
Times are tight, gotta reuse, reuse
Starving for another way out
Wanna pierce the road with a new route
I hear drummin’, ba-da-dum, ba-da-dum
Ba-da-dum, time to get gone, get gone,
Addicted to the move
Addicted to the move •••••••••••••••

Just like the values CRL celebrates, Wisp envisions a future in which sexual education won’t just be a biological topic, but an evolution of the social, emotional, and mental aspects of the human experience.⠀
⟐ art by @smythlauren / swipe for more ⟐ conversation with Lauren:
⟐ what's been inspiring you lately? ⟐
⟐ A few short months ago I moved abroad to Dublin, Ireland from Boston, MA. I feel that my main source of inspiration especially in these last 5 months has to be credited to getting outside of my comfort zone personally and professionally and to the new destinations I’ve explored and the new faces I’ve met. ⟐
⟐ how do you feel about the censorship of your nude work?
⟐ In regards to censorship I find that there is a grey area, especially when it comes to female nudity. It seems that some social media sites enforce these nudity rules for some but not all, which is problematic. I think as a whole society needs to move away from the idea that nudity is a bad thing. No matter your size, gender or race; bodies are awesome, so why can’t they always be celebrated? ⟐
⟐ who are some of your favorite illustrators? ⟐
⟐ There are so many talented illustrators out there that I really admire but off of the top of my head I’m currently girl crushing on Kelly Anna (@kellyannalondon), Alicia Rihko (@aliciarihko), Jillian Evelyn (@jillian_evelyn) and my friend Claire Prouvost (@claire.prouvost)
