One of the most delightful Instagrams we know of is Abstract Sunday, an ongoing array of illustrator, author, artist Christoph Niemann‘s stunningly imaginative work. Our favorite theme is his re-envisioning of the most ordinary everyday object — a banana, scissors, a twig —into something totally unexpected, charming, and illuminating, like his wondrous Bouquet of Abandoned Ideas, above. He helps us do what we hope Improvise Life does: see new possibilities in the everyday.

Here’s a selection of favorite Niemann images that set the tone for a practice you can do anywhere: what can you SEE in the everyday things around you?
