Confused? I was as well when I first came across it. But start by watching the two videos below and then downloading the app for free on iTunes.

Let your imagination go wild

If I could, I’d bring out the child in everyone by passing out these coloring books on birthdays, or better, host a coloring party with my close friends. And let everyone’s imagination go loose!

Johanna Basford, the UK-based creative mind behind these adult coloring books, has already sold a million copies containing detailed and vivid imagery brought to life on a piece of paper.

“Every piece I create starts life as a simple pencil sketch, evolving into a rambling pen and ink drawing usually spanning several sheets of paper. I love the tactile nature of the materials I use and the joy of smudgy fingerprints.”

Her books are priced between $10-$20 and have already made a statement in Paris outselling French cookbooks.

See it for yourself.

Meet Peter Gould

“Peter’s photography is as much about the spiritual as it is about the visual, offering no questions or answers but rather affording the viewer to simply being in that moment and that moment at first glance seems to curiously exist without time or consequence. This is the true beauty of Peter’s work where there is a present quietness about it that shares the essence of purpose of the art and architecture of the past through contemporary mediums, one of the quintessential markers of the true Muslim artist.”

“Peter’s beautiful work is a welcome addition to the contemporary Islamic art scene, a mixture of deep faith and youthfulness that represents tangible modern interpretations of Islam’s everlasting beauty in mind & spirit.”

Turn yourself into a work of art, and I mean literally, by following these simple steps:

  1. Genetic Ink sends you a DNA collection kit
  2. Swab the inside of your cheek and send it back to the company
  3. Using an algorithm, the company turns that sequence–your individual arrangement of A, T, C, and G nucleotides — into a work of art, based on an original design called Spark, by Swiss-Canadian artist and designer Mathieu Daudelin

Such is the price of individuality!!!
