Drake’s Ex & Mom of Adonis, Sophie Brussaux, Stuns in String Bikini While Vacationing in Aruba

Sophie Brussaux posted a stunning photo of herself sunbathing in a bikini while vacationing in Aruba on Jan. 3.

Sophie Brussaux is ringing in the New Year with a tropical vacation in Aruba. The former model took to Instagram on Jan. 3 to share a photo from her travels. In the pic, she’s wearing an orange string bikini with a floral pattern and lounging on the side of a boat. The bright blue water goes on for miles in the background, and Sophie’s hair is wet and slicked back from taking a dip. “In love with this island and its people,” she captioned the pic. “It’s our island now.”

Sophie is the mother of Drake’s four-year-old son, Adonis Graham, but it looks like she may have gotten a break from mommy duty to take this vacation. Drake was linked to Sophie at the beginning of 2017, and Adonis was born that October. However, it wasn’t until the spring of 2018 that news that Drake had fathered a child came out. The information was shared by Pusha T, who was feuding with Drake at the time. Drizzy then confirmed the news himself on his album Scorpion, which came out in June 2018.  Later, Drake explained that he didn’t talk publicly about his son sooner because he was waiting on the results of a paternity test.

Although Drake and Sophie kept Adonis out of the spotlight for the first two years of his life, Drake shared the first photos of his son on Instagram in 2020. “I don’t want to feel like just because of a life choice I made to be a ‘celebrity’ that I got to make everybody live under this blanket,” he explained, regarding his decision to post the pic. “I just wanted to free myself of that.”

Since then, Adonis has popped up on both of his parents’ Instagram pages quite a bit. Drake also brought Adonis to an NBA playoff game earlier this year, and he was by his dad’s side at the Billboard Music Awards in May 2021. It was Adonis’ first public appearance, and he was a bit overwhelmed when the rapper brought him onstage, but he was definitely totally adorable!

Temperature Textiles Translate Climate Crisis Data into Colorful, Graphic Knits

Creating tangible records of weather patterns has been a long-running practice for crafters and designers interested in visually documenting the effects of the climate crisis over time. Daniera ter Haar and Christoph Brach, of the Eindhoven, The Netherlands-based studio Raw Color, join this endeavor with their new collection of knitted goods that embed data about temperature changes, the sea’s rising levels, and emissions directly within their products’ patterns.

In each design, the duo translates data from the IPCC Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, into colorful, line graphics that represent four possible outcomes for the world through the year 2100. The titular Temperature Textiles rely on warm shades, sea level uses cool blues, purples, and greens, and emissions a combination of the two to visualize the changes.

Raw Color shares more specifics about the data behind Temperature Textiles on its site, where you can also shop the collection of flat and double knits. Follow the studio on Instagram to keep up with its latest designs. (via Design Milk)

An Annual ‘Giant Letter’ Installation Displays a Heartfelt Note from a 100-Foot-Tall Boy Named Bobby

Every year on December 12, a handwritten letter on oversized lined paper appears on a residential lawn in Chicago or Austin. The massive constructions, which stand between 8- and 12-feet high, are part of an ongoing project that shares heartfelt messages between an imaginary 100-foot-tall boy named Bobby and those who matter most in his life (aka his mother Lucinda, cat Mr. McFluffins, and Santa).

Chicago-based artists Caro D’Offay and Laura Gilmore began Giant Letter back in 2012 as a way to connect with their community following the tragic killings at Sandy Hook Elementary. Marj Wormald joined the pair a few years later, and together, they’ve installed 10 iterations. “We’re trying to create an atmosphere,” D’Offay said in an interview. “The person standing there can in a way feel very small but also have big emotions. It can be transformative for someone, and they’re just walking their dog.”

During its decade-long run, Giant Letter displays have included microscopes and astronomy books, huge pencils and cups of tea, and of course, chocolate chip cookies and milk. Every piece also sets a “Bobby box” nearby that encourages visitors to drop in messages they’d like to share with the child. In the most recent version installed at the intersection of Glenwood and Albion avenues in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood, a 35-foot tool stretches alongside a letter from Bobby’s mother detailing her cancer diagnosis. “I know this is a much bigger tape measure than you probably need but I want you to dream big and make giant magic!” it reads.

Organizers say the 2021 installation will stay in its current spot indefinitely, although they’re hoping to transfer the project to a museum or gallery in the future. You can follow their progress on Instagram.
