Around 4:00 PM, one of our younger game design students—Ivan—came into the school for his practice session. As always, his cheerful greeting was “Can I have popcorn?!” Ivan has an amazing appetite for popcorn. Without fail, between Ivan, myself and the other Friday students, we go through at least two bags.
The appearance of Ivan and his popcorn request was the first thing to put a real smile on my face today. Sometimes it’s easy to forget just how important the little things are. Such a trivial thing as a bowl of popcorn can make the difference between a good day and a bad day. Thus, the theme of today’s Inspiration Drop is “The Little Things”…Enjoy!
1. Miniature food art by Shay Aaron: these miniatures are so amazing that I’m starting to get hungry–even after all the popcorn! http://thewondrous.com/most-amazing-miniature-food-artworks-by-shay-aaron/
2. Floor by Do Ho Suh: absolutely thought-provoking…and, I have to say, rather awesome. http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/the-floor-do-ho-suh
3. Landscapes carved out of books by Guy Laramee: I might be speechless. http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2011/12/carved-book-landscapes-by-guy-laramee/
That’s it, that’s all! Check back tomorrow for more awesome-ness!
