When Blogger Mom Jessica Shyba Captures Beautiful Moments between Child and Dog

Oh oh oh oh her photographs are so supersweet, you almost simply cannot have missed any of her pictures because her visuals have gone viral through a lot of  social media channels. I'm a sucker for images like these too, not afraid to admit it. Her name is Jessica Shyba and apparently she wrote a book too.."Author of Momma's Gone City and popular internet sensation Theo & Beau, Jessica Shyba has been blogging since 2009. The original intent was to simply stay in touch with friends as the family embarked in a cross-country move from California to New York City, a move prompted by her husband attending dental school at NYU. The family has since returned to California and grown to include 4 children; Jack, Zoe, Beau, and very recently, Evangeline -- as well as a cat named Charlie and a puppy named Theo. The budding friendship between the baby Beau & puppy Theo catapulted Jessica's blog & Instagram into international fame when she started documenting their daily side-by-side naps. Along with that fame, came opportunities for sponsorships on Momma's Gone City, and a book deal which allowed Jessica to showcase her writing & photography."...now see..what blogging can lead to ;-). Here's her website. Like her levels of marketing her ideas!

Dutch Artist's Ingrid Siliakus Paper Architecture

Nice! "Specializing in the Japanese art form of paper architecture, Amsterdam-based artist Ingrid Siliakus creates incredibly detailed architectural masterpieces from single pieces of paper. In order to achieve a final result with the complexity and beauty that she intends, Siliakus may produce anywhere from 20 to over 30 prototypes: “Paper architecture does not bare haste, it is its enemy,” she says. “One moment of loss of concentration can lead to failure of a piece.” Read more here.

Most Amazing Abstract Paintings by Amsterdam Based Artist Daan Roukens

Been following this artist for a while, his paintings are just amazing. Look at this one. I've seen his work in real life and it really caught my eye. Here's a little info about Daan: "Daan Roukens is a Dutch visual artist, who is best known for his abstract designs in vibrant colors and patterns. Working across multiple mediums, such as painting, wall painting and design, he challenges the viewer to experience abstraction in the relationship of form, color and composition. In his obsessive search for the ultimate balance and its contrasts, he continuously pursues to find tension between the repetitive and the asymmetrical. Each artwork is created manually and is a dynamic process from sketch to result. By painting layer upon layer and intuitively adjusting the patterns, colors and shapes, each work evolves expressionistic and differs due to endless possible variations of compositions. As a professional artist, Roukens exhibited on several group- and solo shows at Walls Gallery, Public_, KunstRAI and the Affordable Art Fair. His work varies from private projects to commissions for brands such as Teva, Buutvrij and Lomography and has been featured in multiple online- and offline media like SuperFuture, Analøg and Eigen Huis & Interieur."

Oh my, these lanterns are stunning! "Over the last few weeks, London has been playing host to its first ever Chinese lantern festival, the Magical Lantern Festival, featuring 52 giant tableux handmade by specialists in China and shipped over to the UK. The lanterns, ranging from animals and mushrooms, lotus flowers, plants, chariots, and a dragon that's over 200' long, are spread out over 65 acres of gardens at Chiswick House. The entire collection took around three years to complete. Each lantern is cut by hand from silk, attached to metal frames, and then the lights are placed inside. Around 60,000 LEDs are used in the entirety of these installations." More amazing visuals here.
