Insta-Peep-O-Gram: Randall Slavin
Los Angeles-based photographer Randall Slavin is as well known for his razor-sharp sense of humor as he is his work (he’s shot everyone from Vanessa Redgrave to Charlize Theron and all the Hollywood elite in between). Here, we get a softer side of Randall, catching him with a bit of prose and some California landscape shots. If you’re looking to follow the behind-the-scenes action of a photographer (and stay on top of your inspirational quotes), Randall’s your guy. To follow him on Instagram, click here.

Graphic We Love: Goethe
Though the German-born writer and artist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe died 181 years ago, his words remain just as valid and universal as they did in the 19th century, a testament to the consistency of the human condition. As one might suspect, there is a large number of books featuring Goethe’s work that have been produced over the years. If you want to expand your knowledge of the man beyond this wonderfully inspirational quote, you can buy any number of collectible pieces on eBay.

Graphic We Love: Susan Sontag
Today’s graphic contains selected texts from Susan Sontag’s diaries. The image is illustrated by Wendy MacNaughton, and the words are edited by Maria Popova of the site Brainpickings.org. Quite the pack of brilliant women!
Insta-Peep-O-Gram: Ceylan S
Istanbul-based photographer Ceylan Sözer specializes in fashion, but what we really love is her Instagram feed, a black and white glance inside a thoughtful and creative life. Sözer is an expert at showing enough without giving too much away, making her an excellent storyteller, even if just through social media.

Graphic We Love: Brian Lichtenberg
LA-based designer Brian Lichtenberg is getting major press with his series of fashion-inspired graphics. He riffs on everyone from Hermes (Homies: South Central sweatshirt) to the sort of completely amazing skull-and-bones cut-out of Grace Jones (aka Grace Bones). To get in on the action, visit his online store.
