Video: Dancing on a longboard

snygo_files002-giula-longboard-dance

In this video we accompany Giulia through the beautiful streets of Cologne, Germany. But I wasn’t interested in any sightseeing it was just her renowned dancing skills on the back of a longboard that had put me under her spell. That was also the point of the whole thing. The cool video was produced by VeyVeyFilms who are also from the Rhein metropolis of Cologne. The excellent music is by Schlepp Geist. And now, watch out, don’t be jealous: when this was being filmed Giulia had less than 2 years’ experience on the back of a longboard…

Just like these illustrations by HuskMitNavn. The artist from Copenhagen in Denmark is an international success. Here’s a collection of his illustrations that at first glance appear as if the paper itself is playing along: folded, bent, torn or crumpled. Amazing, don’t you think?

The Spanish brand Pull & Bear created a rather cool campaign for the reopening of their Paris store: 4 international artists were invited into the new store in the Citadium shopping centre to let their creativity run wild on the bare “canvas” of a VW camper van. What emerged from this process were some really beautiful designs for the already very popular dream camper van.

The Italian Michela Picchi and resident of Berlin, the Parisian artist and musician Mehdi Hercberg alias Shoboshobo, the Londoner and illustrator Martina Paukova and the British artist Kyle Platts created lots of diverse, creative works in the process. But check this out for yourselves!

Grey New York won an award for this experiment. But first let’s backtrack a little: More than 60% of Americans really think they’ll be safer if they’ve got their own personal firearm. The truth of the matter sees things a little differently. That’s why a one-of-a-kind gun shop was opened in the city of New York using second-hand handguns and rifles. This was designed to show potential customers the dangers of keeping a firearm in your own home. In this store they got first-hand knowledge of Guns With History. A label threaded through each firearm gave details of a real-life event where casualties (mostly children) were caused by an accessible firearm…
