Weekend Links v.63

Today, I am only going to be sharing one link with you, but trust me, it is a good one! It is one you could spend HOURS on!

Today’s link is The Sketchbook Project. A little bit about The Sketchbook Project:

We are an independent Brooklyn-based company that organizes global, collaborative art projects. Our flagship endeavor is The Sketchbook Project, a crowd-sourced library that features 32,087 artists’ books contributed by creative people from 135+ countries. Brooklyn Art Library is our storefront exhibition space in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY where The Sketchbook Project collection is on view to the public.

The Sketchbook Project began in 2006 in Atlanta, GA and moved to New York City in 2009. Since that time, our small organization has grown into a worldwide community of more than 70,000 artists. By focusing on the intersection of hands-on art making and new technology, The Sketchbook Project nurtures community-supported art projects that harness the power of the virtual world to share inspiration in the real world.

 

Talk about some major inspiration, 32,087 sketchbooks to look through! Enjoy!

TED Talk Monday

Small coincidences. They happen all the time and yet, they pass us by because we are not looking for them. In a delightfully subtle trick, magician Helder Guimarães demonstrates with a deck of cards, a dollar bill and a stuffed giraffe.

The Sage Page – February 2015

 

 

 

Hello everyone! We are officially re-introducing the Sage Page! We used to send out a monthly newsletter to all the artists informing them of new artists joining the team, what is happening at the office, upcoming trade shows, and any other news-worthy information we want them to know. We think it is time to bring that back, so we will be emailing it to the artists, but also posting it here on the blog!

TED Talk Monday

Happy Monday! We hope you enjoyed your Valentine’s weekend! Today we are sharing a TED Talk that has an interesting perspective on work.

What if your job didn’t control your life? Brazilian CEO Ricardo Semler practices a radical form of corporate democracy, rethinking everything from board meetings to how workers report their vacation days (they don’t have to). It’s a vision that rewards the wisdom of workers, promotes work-life balance — and leads to some deep insight on what work, and life, is really all about. Bonus question: What if schools were like this too?
