O-Minus 17: What’s Your Olympic Artwork?

Yesterday we talked about Rio 2016’s posters and the cool factor of Olympic artwork. But it doesn’t have to be limited to what the IOC or an Organizing Committee produces–well, maybe, if you intend to sell it and want to use IOC branding property, but we’re not talking about that. We’re talking about how you display your Olympic mementos.

One of the more awesome things for sale during the London 2012 Games was the Lego figurine. Better still–it came in a mystery package, so you didn’t know which one you’d gotten until you’d opened the package.

A British connection procured some of these for me and my friends, and after seeing how one of my friends used a shadow box for her trio, I decided to as well and added a Team GB logo to go with the collection.

What sorts of things have you done with your Olympic souvenirs? I’m looking at you, pin collectors–how do you display what you have so you can enjoy it and see how cool your artifacts are on a daily basis?

Where’s the torch?

We’ve been a little behind on the torch relay. Today it’s in Barretos, a city in the northern part of the state of São Paulo. Getting closer!!!
