manos project.



Esti drew my hands today and it was only the second time that a print has moved me to tears. [The first was this one]. The thought and time that goes into Esti's Manos Project (which you can learn more about right here) is just so inspiring to me.

It's amazing to me that although I've never met Esti, she so accurately portrayed the very nature of my passions and dreams through just one photograph of my hands. It's truly one of the most remarkable art forms I've come across.

A big thank you to Esti for blessing me with her talent today.

OMG, those hands brought tears to my eyes too. And I don't even know you. There is something just so honest about hands, and for someone to capture your essence like that is so cool. I wish I knew her!

those are so cool! they remind me of a plant in a garden. the left one represents the roots and the right one is the plant above the surface. together, they're complete and beautiful, just like erin. hope that makes sense?

Her work is both beautiful and intriguing... such an inspiring, to say the very lest, project. Lucky you!

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
