#Boomerang by @christyyeee Architect Christie Tan (@christyyeee ) was motivated by #WHPmini to finish this tiny model of an old, local coffee shop — pictured just behind it — over the weekend. “Heritage buildings tug at my heart,” she says. “I like that this model is recognizable as the old shop, yet not exactly the same. I’ve reinterpreted the build.” ☕️
Video by @theharperwatters Harper Watters (@theharperwatters ) says he’s been “a constant mover” ever since he was a child, dancing in styles from modern to hip-hop, jazz to African dance while he was growing up in New Hampshire. After moving to Texas to pursue his dream of becoming a professional dancer, Harper, now 25 years old, has since realized that dream as a demi-soloist with the Houston Ballet.“It’s my goal to highlight the ballet world and bring it to different audiences,” says Harper, an extremely active voice in the social media dance world. “I want to show that we have our own interests and likes.” To accomplish this, Harper frequently films photos and videos he calls “The Pre Show,” showing himself and his fellow dancers preparing for performances, and creates viral videos of himself in bubblegum-pink heels — dancing, vogueing and walking on the treadmill. “These are expressions of my personality and extensions of what I love to do,” says Harper. “I want to create a space for people to be comfortable in who they are, where it’s possible to love Beyonce and RuPaul, and you can wear a pair of pink heels and still call yourself a classical ballet dancer.” 👠Watch our Instagram story now to take a look into Harper’s ballet world.
Video by @deivitt Computer engineer David Moreno Garcia (@deivitt ) got to unleash his playful side while building this #myinstagramlogo with Lego bricks. Always on the lookout for bright materials to make logos, it took David 45 minutes to record this Hyperlapse at his home in Barcelona, Spain. “I love being part of a community so colorful,” he says.
Video by @jonburgerman Jon Burgerman (@jonburgerman ) has never not been doodling. “I doodled all the way through school, often getting in trouble for drawing with the condensation on steamed-up windows,” says the artist, who grew up in the UK and now lives in New York City. “Even from an early age, I was obsessed with drawing on everything. You could say art was a way for me to retreat into a fantasy world of my own making.”These days, Jon paints, draws, animates and even writes as a full-time job — and also unleashes his creativity on Instagram Stories, adding googly-eyed creatures into the regular world and creating them out of inanimate objects with tools like markers and eraser brushes. “I’ve unlocked a part of my brain that allows me to anthropomorphize everything,” he says. “If there’s anything I’d like people to take from my work, it’s that it’s fun to be creative. Everyone should have a go at making things and not worry about them being ‘good’ or ‘bad.’ Just playing and seeing is the main part of the fun.” 👀Watch our Instagram story to see Jon’s doodles come to life in New York City.
Photos and #Boomerang of @jasmeannnn For Jasmine Brown (@jasmeannnn ), keeping makeup simple doesn’t mean keeping it boring. “Modeling, fitness and traveling make my beauty routine stay natural 90 percent of the time,” says the 22-year-old, who is originally from Texas. “But I LOVE experimenting with makeup, new colors and new looks. New challenges I’ve encountered have been silly ones, but still so fun, like the ‘no mirror’ makeup challenge and the ‘using your opposite hand’ makeup challenge.”When she’s creating a new beauty tutorial, Jasmine turns to her followers to find out what they want to learn, and her advice for pulling off a flawless look is always the same: “Confidence! It’s the most beautiful thing ever!” 💋Watch our Instagram story now to see Jasmine pull together one of her signature looks as she gets ready for @beautycon .
Photo by @dllln Dillon Jenkins (@dllln ) and his husky, Coda, camped at this lake with the hope of catching a stunning sunrise. “We woke to a cloudless sky and fog floating above the lake,” he says. “Coda rushed down to the water to dip her paws in, and we listened to the birds sing while I made coffee.” ☕️ #TheWeekOnInstagram
Photo by @andrrresky Fresh beets, carrots, basil — “I came up with the idea for this photo after I brought this harvest home and laid it on the table,” says food photographer Andrey Tulsky (@andrrresky ). “I couldn’t resist the recipe for beet pappardelle. This moment transports us to the kitchen of a Tuscan villa.” 🍝 #TheWeekOnInstagram
