I discovered the site of Florentijn Hofman, a Dutch designer specializing in great outdoor installations. This Fat Monkey was created out of flipflops at the occasion of the Sao Paulo Pixel Show. Would you believe the ordinary flipflop could be the source (pixel) of such installation?

Long Live The Queen!

Yesterday our Queen Beatrix celebrated her birthday. Painful that I forgot to post this yesterday, especially since I had made a couple of my own portraits of her last year. She has a beautiful smile! Hasn’t she? A belated happy birthday to the Majesty!
