From puppies 🐶 and colombian coffee, ☕️
to meditating and making music, 🎶
we’re at home with maluma in medellín, learning all about the things he’s most grateful for. “for me it’s been very, very important to keep creating music. i’m a musician. so it’s something that gives me a lot of happiness and tranquility.”
#takeabreak with maluma and see what’s keeping his days grounded and his spirits lifted.
Meet artist pete cromer’s (@petecromer ) hand-painted “druids.” pete casts molds of pebbles and stones “borrowed from nature,” then re-creates them from concrete, resin and glitter.
“i’m drawn to the idea of materials, like stone, that last through civilizations like in ancient cultures. some people believe stones hold certain types of energy. the druids, in my case, hold positive energy,” he says.
“i started making the druids shortly after i left my full-time job to pursue my artistic endeavors. i created them to place around my home, so i felt others were there with me, like a cheer squad — for support, warmth and happiness. they were reassurance that things were going to be ok,” he says. “i call them bright souls because they are all about positivity and making you feel happy.”

Once special makeup artist amazing jiro (@amazing_jiro ) realized he wouldn’t be applying makeup to others due to shelter-in-place rules, he came up with an inventive solution which was (literally) close at hand: #onehandmonster.
“it’s a cheerful, fun art activity aimed at those who are unable to leave their homes,” says jiro. “i hoped that i could improve their gloomy moods a bit, so i came up with the theme of monsters that eat gloomy feelings.”
“using the motifs of animals everyone was familiar with was sure to evoke empathy, and i thought it would be even more interesting if i added a bit of imagination to turn these animals into new, original characters — a tiger with the markings of a hippo and a giraffe, a bird with the skin texture of a dinosaur,” he explains.
“even during times of hardship, we can cheer ourselves up and save ourselves by using imagination.” #thisweekoninstagram

#hellofrom a futuro house. we’re dreaming of this out-of-this-world structure, tucked into the caucasus mountains. 🌼
designed by finnish architect matti suuronen, there is nothing supernatural about this flying saucer. less than 100 of these prefabricated “portable” ski chalets were built in finland, and this particular pod first landed on the mussa-achitara ridge in the 1970s.
today, you can find futuro houses around the world, and the one in dombay is a functioning hotel.

Asian american girl club (@asianamericangirlclub ) is the group ally maki (@allymaki ) wishes her teenage self could join. “i wanted to redefine the narrative for myself of what belonging should feel like,” explains ally, who founded aagc in 2018. “my goal was to create something by girls that look like me, for girls that look like me.”
the club recently kicked off #aagclettersoflove, a hashtag created for a 7-year-old girl named leia who heard a classmate say “they didn’t like china or chinese people because they started this quarantine” on a virtual meeting.
“some of our girls asked if they could write an encouraging letter back to leia. we thought this could be a beautiful way of letting her know she has a community of love who support her,” explains ally. “it made me wonder how many other young people around the world are having similar experiences right now and not understanding why.”
the response = amazing. “it is a clear example of how love and support can change a narrative,” says ally. “that’s the power of community in action.” #teamaagc #apaheritagemonth

Heavily influenced by her longtime obsession with manga and anime, multidisciplinary artist nathalie nguyen’s (@spicy.obj ) creative output exists at the intersection of tech and fashion. “i’ve been an illustrator for most of my life, but the last two years i’ve committed to 3d art,” says nathalie, who founded the project happy99 (@happy99.online ) with dominic lopez (@thedomsolo ).
a series of over-the-top virtual footwear designs first put them on the map. “it felt natural to create shoes in 3d because we just wanted to visualize our concepts without the burden of physical production,” says nathalie. from there, happy99 even put on a virtual fashion show. “the fashion show was an ambitious project to show the world that fashion can be consumed without physically owning it — which i believe is a pivotal concept in consumer cycles,” she says. #thisweekoninstagram
