Ahhh… Youth

Vodafone aired this commerical titled Youth in Romania last month.  It taps into how “Some things work only until a certain age.  So make the most of being young.”  Not sure how this correlates to a mobile phone provider but I love the truth of the phenomenon.

Wonderland

Korean artist, Yeondoo Jung decided to bring children’s drawings to life in a series of photographs called WonderlandAfter collecting more than 1,000 drawings from children ages 5-7 in South Korea, he narrowed the drawings down to a small selection of favorites and staged full-scale photo shoots to bring each to life.

My initial thought when I saw these photos was, “Wow, I bet this is what life looks like through Björk’s eyes.” But really, think of how empowering it must feel for a child to have their imagination recognized and actualized.  Something to keep in mind when I have tater tots of my own.  I do, however, wish this project went a step further… I would love to be able to see the children’s reactions when presented with the photo renderings of their drawings.  Can’t you just imagine an innocent face correcting Yeondoo?  …”My picture isn’t of us having a slumber party, we were doing pull-ups!  See?  Right there!”

My Beautiful Mommy

My Beautiful Mommy is a new picture book for children ages four to seven that aims to explain why mom is getting plastic surgery.  The book features a plastic surgeon named Dr. Michael (a musclebound superhero type) and a girl whose mother gets a tummy tuck, a nose job and breast implants.  If nothing less, it will prepare them for a competitive game of Miss Bimbo, I guess?!?
