“An artwork unable to make people feel uncomfortable or to feel different is not one worth creating. This is the difference between the artist and the fool.”

Put this in a studio STAT. How cool is this for a photo backdrop?

It’s a lamp installation for Ikea in Lisbon. The guys from LikeArchitects used 1200 light bulbs to make it!

“Lady In The Dark Dress” - Illustration by Sam SprattTwo of my many artsy New Year’s resolutions were to do more full-body portraits (as opposed to my usual chest-up) and to imagine up design elements I normally wouldn’t put much thought into — in this case, a dress.

“Lady In The Dark Dress” - Illustration by Sam Spratt

Two of my many artsy New Year’s resolutions were to do more full-body portraits (as opposed to my usual chest-up) and to imagine up design elements I normally wouldn’t put much thought into — in this case, a dress.

This video hit me in all the right places. Nate Taylor gave something back to the members of his community with special needs by dedicating his time and resources to giving them a great holiday portrait.

"What’s so special about a holiday portrait?" I hear you ask. Step back a second. People with special needs are constantly made to feel like second-class citizens, in the way they are marginalised by some; but also in the way that they can in some cases be treated like they need to be wrapped up in cotton wool, when it maybe just isn’t necessary.

These individuals have not only been able to find employment at FVO Solutions, a manufacturing company in Pasedena, California; but they have also been granted by Nate and his team a day in which they can feel “normal”. I firmly believe that work like this and other projects like Help-Portrait can do genuine good in society at large.

I hope to one day contribute my own efforts to those that have so willingly helped me through my struggles.
