Seth Godin writes in this article The Candy Diet: The bestselling novel of 1961 was Allen Drury’s Advise and Consent. Millions of people read this 690-page political novel. In 2016, the big sellers were coloring books.

Fifteen years ago, cable channels like TLC (the “L” stood for Learning), Bravo and the History Channel (the “History” stood for History) promised to add texture and information to the blighted TV landscape. Now these networks run shows about marrying people based on how well they kiss.

An Interview with Cyberella

Posted by on Aug 10, 2016 in Creatives I admire, Ipso Fabulous | No Comments

myrtoAlexi Ueltzen, a Creative Community Evangelist at Ello, interviews Myrto Simic:

Alexi asked “Your monsters are often part of a very normal street scene or activity. How do you decide the setting for each piece?” I loved Myrto’s response “The notion behind this was that those monsters are trying to rule the world. They are everywhere, in Paris, Britain, Greece, etc., but they fail miserably because they became quiet cozy with this world. So they visit museums even though they look creepy and eerie, they enjoy long walks and going on summer vacations – much like humans do – whilst sometimes their world integrates rather than merges with our own.” Read the full interview, and see more of Myrto’s work here >

Do you know about Ello? Ello is the only network designed for creators, by creators. A robust and growing community of artists, designers, musicians, illustrators, photographers, architects, GIF makers – creators, who understand that our process, practice, values and passions can push the world forward in a better direction.
