Here's to another work week coming to a close. Let's celebrate with some friday props! It's a mixed bag edition, so here's a bunch of things I found interesting. This Parody. Entitled "The Timmy Brothers" this piece is a great parody piece about bespoke drinking water. Give it a watch, enjoy a laugh, and pass it along?
A short look at the Timmy Brothers, Brooklyn–based makers of bespoke drinking water.
Bill and Terry Timmy are introducing handcrafted water to the world with an almost pathological attention to craftsmanship and a thirst
I'm always a fan of a well done cover song. There's something to be said for the community created by sharing and appropriating music. So when I stumbled upon the series AV Undercover I had to give it props. Each series they draft a list of songs to be performed, then bring in artists who have to perform one of the songs from the list. The results are pretty spectacular. Here are a few of my favorites so far. Punch Brothers cover The Strokes' "Reptilia" Screaming Females Cover Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" Of Montreal covers The White Stripes' "Fell In Love With Read More >>
It's another week of internet findings! This friday I'm growing up, and telling the youths to get off my lawn! It's Friday Props, the Kids These Days edition.

The project pairs elderly citizens with street artists to create public works of art and cultivate community. Second props this week are going to an urban climbing duo operating as "On The Roofs" for this video of them climbing what is Read More >>
It's the world of tomorrow from yesterday! It's Friday Props, the Retrofuturist edition! I stumbled across some wonderfully quirky visions of the future this week and had to share them for Friday Props. I'll be kicking off with this collection of Japanese futurist illustrations predating the 1960's. The collection is filled with visions of futures utopian or otherwise all with some super retro flair. While sifting through some of these fantastic images I was brought back to hours spent pouring over Chris Foss' "21st Century Foss" as a kid. I'll give his work a props as well and share his Read More >>
Each week I get to spend part of my Friday sharing my internet findings. This week, I'd like to share some of my go-to's for props worthy findings.

It's Friday, and that means it's time for some friday props. This week I'll be featuring some insanely bright, energized art. First up is work from Australian artist Tanya Schultz, who works under the pseudonyme Pip & Pop. Like her chosen name, her work is light, playful, and full of quirk. Primarily sculpture based, her materials focus heavily on the use of sugar, glitter, and small trinkets and oddities. Check out her portfolio at pipandpop.com.au I'll follow up with work by Souther Salazar, whose work is self described as "an exercise in spontaneity". His paintings are playful, colorful, and feel full Read More >>
Spring is (technically) here, and we're itching for some sunshine around the office. This weeks props go out to some projects that bring a little more color and quirk into our lives; It's Friday Props, the Spring Fever Edition. My first props this week goes to Japanese art collective TeamLab for their latest installation piece "Floating Flower Garden". The immersive piece, currently installed at Miraikan in Tokyo, consists of over 2300 live flowers suspended in a room. When a viewer walks through the piece the flowers closest to them rise to form a dome around them. Check out video footage of Read More >>
Our hundredth Friday Props post is just one week away, so I'll be returning to our themeless roots.

Often regarded as "playscapes" these sculptures engage viewers and encourage their exploration and tactile exploration of the work.Picture below is work from his exhibit entitled "Madness is Part of Read More >>

Friday has rolled around once again, and with it comes a whole new round of Friday Props. This weeks props delve into the world of culinary.

Kickstarter Project Food Truck Revolution also caught our attention this week. The Read More >>
