“Happiness is not simply the idea of happiness, but the moment when you are feeling it.” 🙂 Twin creators Xavier and Daniel Cardona, aka Boldtron (@boldtron), “like to swim around in abstract ideas and share them with the world.”⁣ ⁣ “That’s happiness for us,” the pair says. “Everything comes from a surreal vision, mostly induced by dreams. We don’t bind ourselves with a specific strategy — everything is valid in the creative process.”⁣ ⁣ Five years ago, the brothers, both art directors, founded Pzzza Studio (@pzzzastudio) and now work exclusively in digital. “CGI for us is empirical. It’s this classic trial-and-error process that we really love, because even a mistake can show us a great result.⁣ ⁣ We picked the smiley as a global image of happiness. It’s a simple and direct concept. Soothing vibes, colors and the surroundings are vital to the overall concept. We added two candles as faith. We placed everything into a laboratory crystal set, because this process is slow.⁣ ⁣ Changing your mindset for the better is necessary, but it needs work, and work takes time.”⁣ ⁣ #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣ ⁣ Illustration by @boldtron

It’s time to meet, eat and compete with Mérida, Gwendolyn, Woody and Zeus. These four Piggy Potatoes (@thepiggypotatoes) are guinea pig foodies, who can be a little overeager when it comes to their favorite snack: the crunchy cucumber. 🥒⁣ ⁣ “Guinea pigs can eat the whole day,” says their human, Nadine. “They always have a competition about who is the fastest eater.” #WeeklyFluff⁣ ⁣ Video by @thepiggypotatoes

Japanese artist and designer Verdy (@verdy) always loved drawing characters. After years of doodling in notebooks, the iconic “Vick” came to life. ✍📒⁣ ⁣ “I feel like we’ve grown up together over many years,” says Verdy. “Having the same personality as myself, he is always positive, takes on new challenges and is also pretty easygoing.”⁣ ⁣ The amount of time Verdy’s spent at home alone with his drawings last year gave him time to think about what’s important. “Up until now I thought I wanted to become an artist from Japan that gets to go out into the world. But now I want to be an artist that represents Asia.” 🌏✨⁣ ⁣ If you’re needing some new year inspiration, #TakeABreak with Verdy (and his sidekick Vick) to see his work and passion in full force.

“I make clothing our inner child would be ecstatic to wear,” says 21-year-old fashion designer Hawwaa Ibrahim (@hellohawwaa). 😀❤️ A little over a year ago, they started their own brand, Because (@shopb_c); Hawwaa designs and makes everything by hand.⁣ ⁣ “We strive to be all-inclusive and welcome anyone ready for joy through fashion. Being Muslim and nonbinary has allowed me to be more open and understanding towards other people. My experiences have made me more outspoken against ignorance, more motivated for change and more expressive in my appearance. I know how it feels to be discriminated against and to feel like an outsider — I never want others to feel that way.⁣ ⁣ The smiley icons in my designs are a part of my collection ‘Down-Side Up.’ The idea is to smile when you look at it.⁣ ⁣ Expressing your inner child through fashion and not taking life so seriously is something I live by. Of course, there are serious moments in life, but we may as well find some joy to sprinkle in.”⁣ ⁣ #ThisWeekOnInstagram⁣ ⁣ Photo by @hellohawwaa

#HelloFrom Ancient City (Muang Boran), located in central Thailand. We are dreaming of a visit to this outdoor museum park, one of the largest in the world. Many structures here are replicas of famous temples, monuments and buildings from across Thailand... but this one came from the owner’s imagination. Photo by @kankankavee

“Historic.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ That’s the word Amanda Gorman (@amandascgorman) chose to describe this Inauguration Day in the United States.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ During today’s ceremony at the Capitol, Amanda, the very first US youth poet laureate, will recite a new poem titled “The Hill We Climb.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ “My hope is to use language to speak to an America that is united and moving into the future with love and understanding,” says the 22-year-old.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ “I am deeply indebted to the inaugural poets who’ve come before me, and I am not missing out on the symbolism that I am the youngest inaugural poet — and Black and female at that — while the first female, woman of color vice president [Kamala Harris] is being sworn in.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ This inauguration will be game-changing and add much-needed representation to the history books. It’s a privilege to be a part of it.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Photo of @amandascgorman by @kelianne

“My inspiration has been birthed from the richness of Black history — the past, present and possibilities of the future,” says the artist Broadie (@bbrody04).⁣ ⁣ His work clearly spans his connection to history. Some pieces reflect on African American spirituals like “Wade in the Water” (pictured), while others depict modern pop culture figures or even iconic moments from the 1960s civil rights movement in the United States.⁣ ⁣ On #MLKDay, Broadie looks back at Dr. King’s historic legacy, one that has informed his life and his work: “To quote MLK, ‘I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.’ I feel this quote shows how love continues to fight against hate, injustice and racism. Hate brings destruction and separation, while love connects people from all walks of life.⁣ ⁣ Simply put, to me, MLK means Black excellence.”⁣ ⁣ Art by @bbrody04
