Morrissey Sticker Project and a new Interview

Yesterday, Morrissey gave a rare in-person interview in Lary King’s show. In this interview, he talked about his health (Aww), about being vegan, politics and more. He made me really laugh when he said about Donald Trump “Yhea, in the dark, he looks like everybody else…”

This interview reminds me how I wanted to post about a great Instagram project I’ve been following in the past years. The Morrissey sticker project is an amazing photography / music project that would easily melt any Morrissey fan’s heart. How does it work? You order your stickers here (I know, it’s empty now, but patience my dear). Then, you post it on your Instagram account with the tag #morrisseystickerproject. You could, then appear at @morrisseystickerproject on Instagram, and the fan page on Facebook.

Here are some photos of the project:

I ordered my own stickers about a year ago, but I must admit I can’t give it away to the streets, which I’m not sure how much appreciate it the way I do…

This Artist Will Help You See The World In Pantones

Pantone cards help us decide which color to paint our walls or even furniture when we’re doing a makeover. People with artistic minds also see the world and everything in it in colors. People who work with colors on a daily basis, often see things not just as colors, but as specific Pantone codes.

Joshua Nissen King is an artist that has a special eye for colors. On his Instagram account he detects the exact Pantone in everyday objects – From vintage cars, to an old man’s pants.

Take a look at these amazing photos:

“I typically pick three potential matches before I approach the object in sight. I number my guess 1, 2, and 3 in order of the strength of the match.”

“The lighting often effects the search even if my eyes see it match it changes through a camera as it interprets light differently. Many variables to consider.”

“I am obsessed with color in the everyday, I plan to do a similar project where I mix a paint on the spot and make my own swatches to match any color! It acts as an exercise for me, to see the colors within a color.”
