There are certain things you know you’ll find on Hollywood Blvd: fresh-off-the-bus dream-seekers, street performers caressing pythons, international tourists keeping the selfie stick market afloat— the list goes on and on. Less expected on Tinseltown’s most famous thoroughfare is a glass storefront within the Ovation Hollywood shopping center that showcases Japanese art, design, gastronomy, innovation, and technology.

The Daily Heller: Cartoonist Louis Glackens Laid the Foundation for Modern Animators
Print Magazine
by Steven Heller
3h ago
I have long been a fan of early 20th century cartoons and Ashcan School art of the same period. Louis M. Glackens, the older brother of Ashcan School painter William Glackens, became one of the first illustrators of animated cartoons from 1915–1920, creating characters for production houses such as Baré, Pathe and Sullivan Studios. His fantastical depictions of mermaids, anthropomorphic beasts and comical characters created a paradigm for what would become Walt Disney’s masterpieces. “Louis Glackens had a discerning eye through which he observed the human condition,” writes Ariella Wolen, cura ..read more

23h ago
It’s a familiar scenario for many organizations: the marketing website feels outdated, confusing, and disconnected from what the organization truly represents. The straightforward solution seems to be a new website. Tangible engagement metrics on Google Analytics make it easier to persuade leadership to set aside funds to fix your primary channel for marketing and communications. But, what if the root of the problem lies deeper, in the very essence of your organization’s brand? Deciding what to invest in first should be based on the root cause of your symptoms. With several hundred projects un ..read more

This perspective comes from guest contributor Huitzilli Oronia, a Chicana designer based in Denver, Colorado. As a designer at the award-winning creative production agency Hook, Oronia focuses on helping people and communities tell powerful stories that challenge conventions. My heritage is a rich, vibrant tapestry woven from the traditions of the Pueblo people of the Southwest and the Nahua/Mexica of Mexico. It’s an identity steeped in pride and longing, a strong fabric of interconnection and reciprocity that also bears the scars of displacement and detribalization.  As an adult, I’ve em ..read more

Peonies Aside, April Hits Hard

by Liz Gumbinner
2d ago
If March goes out like a lamb, why is April an 800 lb gorilla sitting on my chest wearing a jaunty floral scarf? April arrives before I’m ready, every year without exception. I suppose you could argue that it’s the first of all months to truly sneak up on us with the exception of January 1, but only because we spend far too much time in advance fetishizing the harbinger of new beginnings to come on that day. If January 1 is optimism, April 1 is a body blow to all my tender parts April is the precise month at which we no can officially longer say “It is early in the year.” (And yes, it is offic ..read more

The Daily Heller: Oops, I Missed It … Again!

You had to be “Tommy” the leading character in the The Who’s rock opera of the same name — or dumb as a rock — to miss Monday’s near total eclipse of the sun. I did. And it was happening right outside my window — at least the eerily beautiful luminescent gray air lingered for a moment. While everyone I knew was out on the streets or tops of buildings were staring up at the heavens, I was staring at the blue-light of my computer screen attempting to write a Daily Heller about the very eclipse I am writing today about and how the Universe should win awards for lifetime achievement in interactiv ..read more

Cj Hendry Makes a Splash in the Desert with ‘Public Pool’
Print Magazine
by Charlotte Beach
3d ago
It’s one thing to imagine a 50-meter-long inflatable pool in the middle of a desert. It’s another to make it a reality. Artist Cj Hendry isn’t one for simply envisioning things, and recently, she brought her flamboyant idea of constructing a massive pool in the Las Vegas desert to life. I love the vivacity of Las Vegas and the duality of the desert together. I hope this exhibition sparks joy, connection, and a sense of wonder for everyone who dives into the experience. Cj Hendry The installation, dubbed Public Pool, ran in Las Vegas from April 4 through April 7. Steeped in glitz and whimsica ..read more
