I made this painting in about 5 hours. Love is where I find my motivation! MFLB–the closest you'll ever get to the stars. Look for the glyph!

I don’t know what I should say with this.

We met in Los Angeles one summer, barely knew one another. A year passed filled with letters, pictures, everything. Almost exactly a year after we first me, we both happened to be in New York on the same day – right before I was leaving the country. There was maybe an hour to talk, if that, and it felt right.

Nothing came of it otherwise, but there was an immense condition of love that year.

There’s no longing, regret, or heartbreak – just love.

This is the only picture I have of her, and I’m not sure how I would feel about that day had I not taken it.

"I chose love by rescuing Bear from a terrible home when he was only 7 weeks old. I brought him home, cleaned him up, and I've spent every minute of free time for the last month with my new best friend.

"To me love is the simple little gestures, and I wanted to reveal that by making a stencil cutout of my boyfriend sharing his beloved MFLB with me whenever and wherever we are together.

Announcing our Choose Love Contest

Choose Love Contest

Love cannot be constrained, modified or conditioned by anything which exists, for it has the nature of creation.

Love is never dependent on any specific or particular form, detail or quality.

As might be expected from looking at a Launch Box, we’ve done a lot of thinking on the topic of Love. We believe that Love is more enabling of choice than any other emotion. It’s an integral part of the Magic–Flight community and is infused into each product we design and make by hand.

Around this time of year, romantic love—the chocolate-and-roses kind—seems to draw the collective attention, but we want to invite you to take some time to appreciate and celebrate Love in all of the forms it takes. We’re asking you to share how you choose, create, and express Love in your world. To help motivate and inspire you, we’re giving our three favorite entries via Instagram and Facebook their choice of one of four prizes: a Maud-Dib Concentrate Box Kit, or our new bubbler, the Orbiter (coming out soon), a Power Adapter 2.0, or any Launch Box Kit that we offer.

HOW TO ENTER:

After some consideration, share with us an expression of your Love. What does it look like? Does it come to you through music and sound? What words come to mind? Who or what are the things that enrich your life on a profound level?

Examples of creative expressions focusing on Love as the theme, inspiration, or subject include:

  • Language: a haiku, poem, or other creative use of words
  • Visual: a photograph, painting, collage, or other visual representation
  • Sound: an original composition or performance using sounds
  • Surprise us!

JUDGING AND VOTING

The last day to submit an entry via Facebook or Instagram is Wednesday, February 12th at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. Our staff will assemble and judge all entries on Thursday, February 13th, and winners will be announced on Instagram and Facebook Friday, February 14th.

We want to see your creativity!

We have found that the people that own Launch Boxes are seriously creative.

HOW TO ENTER:

Show us something creative you have done with your Launch Box. Examples of creativity include:

  • Painting/Drawing/Etching/Wood Burning/Staining or other artistic modifications to the outside surface of your Launch Box.
  • Modifications to the functionality of the Box (redesigned click lock/magnets/stem holders/etc)
  • A homemade Launch Box storage/travel case.
  • Modifications to the Launch Box Tin.
  • A disguise to make using the Box more stealthy.
  • A new stem/whip style or design.
  • A homemade system to cool/store vapor.
  • Surprise us!

IF YOU DECIDE TO MODIFY YOUR BOX, MAKE SURE YOU DON’T COVER OR REMOVE THE SERIAL NUMBER. DON’T VOID YOUR WARRANTY! QUESTIONS? CONTACT US.
