The Site of the Stars Makes Me Dream

Van Gogh quote illustrated by Seb Lester

I know nothing with any certainty, but the site of the stars makes me dream.

A quote by a man who needs no introduction, Vincent Van Gogh.

Magnificently illustrated quote by London based type designer, illustrator, and artist by the name of Seb Lester. Check out his website at seblester.co.uk. He has created typefaces and type illustrations for some of the world’s biggest companies, publications and events, including the likes of Apple, Nike, Intel, The New York Times, The 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and J.D. Salinger’s final reissue of The Catcher in the Rye. He is passionate about letterforms.

All We Need Is Love

All We Need Is Love in Laurel Canyon

All We Need Is Love in Laurel Canyon

When we moved into our new place in the Hollywood Hills this doll just appeared on our street directly in front of our house in Laurel Canyon. The anonymously placed doll was a perfect welcoming to our new neighborhood. Laurel Canyon is a weird place with an interesting and erratic history and a whole lot of character. This is an example of street art with a positive message that spoke to us and everyone who came to visit… and without a doubt, we gotta whole lot of love out in Laurel Canyon.

Hera (Herakut) feat. Rusk (Maclaim)

One of the most beautiful and inspiring video’s by one of my favorite artist Hera collaborating with Rusk from the world renown Maclaim crew. It’s not about art, it’s about life.

“… it’s about listening to a random old man, watching kids play, dogs run… about loving your man, about enjoying a good wall, about freestyle. If i had to tell you what’s been on my mind lately, I wouldn’t say art. It was: walls, dogs, stories, spray-cans, love, life.”

On Your Streets At Night

 

it’s just one of those nights
my hearts pulsing to impload
another one of those nights
I just want you to hold
and I do what I can
to be the best man
so I work with great flight
I stretch and I fight
But why aren’t you here
on a night that’s so cold
Theres something that I am missing
and thats having you to hold
So I draw and I write
with all of my might
I draw and I write
and I’ll be doing it all night
But all that I hear
is that nobody is here
all that I hear
is that nobody is near
So I’ll draw and I’ll write
On your streets at night.

it’s just one of those nights

my hearts pulsing to impload

another one of those nights

I just want you to hold

and I do what I can

to be the best man

so I work with great flight

I stretch and I fight

But why aren’t you here

on a night that’s so cold

Theres something that I am missing

and thats having you to hold

So I draw and I write

with all of my might

I draw and I write

and I’ll be doing it all night

And all that I hear

is that nobody is here

all that I hear

is that nobody is near

So I’ll draw and I’ll write

On your streets at night.
