I’ve been down with the flu for the past week, so the writing of #30postsfor30 doesn’t go so well lately. But, since tomorrow will be another long weekend, here’s a list of colorful things that I’ve wanted to share.
The 12000 ft exhibition called the Color Factory opens its door in San Fransisco this August. The exhibition is totally made for color lovers and such a beautiful place to play (and take a picture) with. Not only that the place holds beautiful colored windows (and floors), it also has a yellow ball pit and a room full of confetti! I’ve been following Oh Happy Day’s blog since a long time ago and completely amazed by their works this time. Read the story behind the making of Color Factory here.

Did you know that PANTONE only hired workers with a perfect color perception on their factory? The interesting thing is you can also take the color test online. Meanwhile, how lovely is this Pantone Postcards? These 100 postcards are a good alternative for you who cannot afford the original Pantone Color Book, which I think also will look good as picture props :))
I’ve been following a lot of artists in the Instagram, but there is no one who has been so consistently sharing a candy colored phone wallpaper like Matt Crump. Matt’s Instagram feeds has been always about high contrast neon/candy colored objects that’s absolutely wonderful. I’ve never use any other phone wallpaper ever since I found his account. One of the most notable work of Crump is how he transforms Beirut into a candy colored heaven.
The Tokyoiter takes homage to the The New Yorker‘s classic magazine cover. The fictional magazine features a lot of great artists (like Karan Singh), who is willing to take the challenge of illustrating Tokyo as they see it.
I’ve been planning to go in another scan-and-trace marathon this weekend, since I have racked a lot of drawing and writing lately. So, have a nice weekend with your loved ones, color believers :)
