King of Cool

Over the past few months, the Queen Anne B & B has been revamping their gallery suites and just unveiled them last week. Each is unique, redesigned by local artists, giving true Denver flavor to the visitor’s experience.

Not only does the Queen feature local artists, but also has a long list of ecological perks, actively aiming towards becoming Denver’s only zero-waste hospitality establishment.

Inspiring, Thoughtful & Silly Videos of the Week.

I’m often lead down the deep, dark rabbit hole that exists on my desk. Here is what emerged from it this week…

Procrastination. It’s these videos. It’s this blog. It’s you reading this blog. It’s making a cup of tea. Brilliant video animated, directed and written by London artist Johnny Kelly.

Jolt was recently commissioned to do a mural – that’s 10 stories tall – and decided to ask the community which surrounds it what they would paint in the mural. The responses from the children are so precious, pulled on my heart strings a little. *Sniffle*

Remember how I went to Miami? Check out the alley gallery Bored of Directors installed while we were there: “Bored of Art Basel”

Legwork Studio is a Denver-based creative agency, at this time of year it’s typical to see all the “Year In Review” videos, articles and reports from different companies. This one in particular nails it on the head: Stay humble and share what you learn. Truly a good motto to live by. (Psst: don’t miss the part at 0:34, sooo funny)

Bring me back to the days of mischief! A little arts and crafts, spray paint plus a friend with a bicycle? Uh, yes please! Looptaggr makes me want to run out side and play.

Tell me!
What phrase would your “drive-by stenciling device” write?


Johnny Cupcakes Denver Visit

Johnny Cupcakes came to Denver last week for his have-fun-while-learning Lecture Series. Thanks to AIGA Colorado and the Denver Art Museum for hosting.

It was great listening to him lecture, I felt like we had a lot in common – for instance, as a child I also would sell my parent’s belongings while they slept or worked. I had the pleasure of meeting him and Danny, both super cool dudes who are down to earth. I’m excited to see what else comes from Johnny Cupcakes in the future, his collaboration with Hello Kitty looks tight!

“If you ever find yourself in Denver, Colorado – be sure to stay at the Queen Anne Inn. It feels like home. Out of the many places I’ve stayed at while traveling, I’d have to say this place is up in the top ranks.”
