Peaceful Cuisine

Japanese chef Ryoya Takashima has a great YouTube Channel called Peaceful Cuisine. I’ve been enjoying it lately and using it to wind down. Ryoya’s presence is very mellow and his imagery is simple and, well, peaceful. The (no music) versions of the videos have a subtle ASMR quality that’s very relaxing. You can also learn some fantastic vegan recipes.

Romantic Films That Aren’t

Some like to stay in for St. Valentine’s Day. Stay in and watch movies that at first glance aren’t really in keeping with the spirit of that particular holiday but trust me when I say that these are really some of the most romantic films I’ve seen in a long time. Not feel good rom-coms but complex studies in love that are morally intricate.

Happy Valentines Day!

Kirra Jamison

I’m a fan of The Design Files Melbourne Mornings series. Recently they’ve featured artist Kirra Jamison.

She’s inspired me to think about new projects. Maybe break out of my comfort zone and explore more color, bolder shapes, experiment.
