art of the selfie

Everyone’s taking selfies nowadays, even paintings! Denmark-based designer Olivia Muus decided to amuse herself while on a trip to the museum by taking selfies. Not of herself, but of people in old portraits.
The technique is easy and anyone can get in on the action – after asking permission from the curator, of course! Using an extra phone, she positions her arm to make it look like the painting subject’s very own. She then clicks away, making it appear that the person in the painting is taking a mirror selfie.

It’s a fun take on two portraiture styles from different eras; one from the past and one from today.

Tom Foerstel : Founder & President

Tom Foerstel

Founder & President

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.


He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.


An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.


One of Tom’s proudest personal achievements is his ability to say Supercalifragilisticexpyalidocious backwards.
