A new year gives us all time to set intentions for the upcoming 365 days, whether that’s through resolutions or immediate lifestyle changes. All of us at TPS feel like 2014 is going to be a good one. 2013 was a year of hard work and we feel like 2014 is the year of reaping the rewards of that labor. In honor of setting intentions and making changes, we’ve got a big one. This right here will serve as our last post. We’ve had a blast over the past 2 years — we’ve met, interviewed, gone behind the desks of and spent Sunday mornings with some pretty rad people… and really cute kids. We’ve all got some fun projects up our sleeves and may pop in on the TPS social media accounts here and there to keep you posted on some of those happenings. In the meantime, keep up with all of us by checking out our projects, blogs and other fun stuff below.

Artist Phillip K Smith III ventured to the California high desert, right outside Joshua Tree to create an optical illusion via mirrors on a 70 year old wood residence. He added mirrors to the walls of this desert shack to create the illusion that you can see right through the building. The door and windows of the building are fitted with mirrors that transform into brightly colored rectangles that slightly change color after dark.
Lucas Musgrave is the Art Director + Brand Manager for Santa Cruz Skateboards as well as a contributing artist for Creature Skateboards and a bunch of other skate brands. He is also a seriously rad dad. Every evening he creates a piece of artwork on lunch bags for his son, Bishop. I’m pretty sure this must make Bishop the coolest kid in class. Follow Lucas on Instagram here to see his daily lunch bag creations… and to get really jealous of Bishop.
If you’re like us, you’re in need of a 2014 calendar to start making big plans for next year. Just in time, we heard from Krisztina Vona, a french-based artist, who has drawn a 2014 calendar with animals. Her goal with these drawings was to “show the beauty of the nature.” We think she was quite successful at that! Purchase your calendar here.
I love the print shop over at Banquet Atelier & Workshop. The artwork by Sarah Edmonds and Tammy Lawrence is part whimsy, part vintage inspiration and all gorgeous. I’d take any of these in a heartbeat (especially the cactus) and wouldn’t even be mad if you made me take all of them for use in a gallery wall! With the holidays fast approaching, don’t miss their holiday shop as well.
