A year of dreamy photos! Polaroid calendar by Alicia Bock.

I have been so busy lately. I apologize if you have stoped by and noticed I have not been updating. But, I promise I’ll jump back on my blogging horse soon… just as everything settles with opening the shop!

Love the art direction, public art, objects, and prints by Joanna Bean.

Every time I water color I have this little piece of test paper for getting off excess color, testing strokes, and color trials. I usually end up liking the test paper way more than my painting. That’s what Flora Douville‘s art cards remind me of- a painters test papers. I like them!

I was blown away when I saw these installations of books cascading from buildings! And, what a perfect follow-up post to the Storyteller bookshelves. The installations are really quite beautiful… and have me thinking about waste and consumption.

I also liked this quote and marketing idea from Design Verb:

“Installation artist Alicia Martin sure has a thing for Streaming Books. This would have been a great PR piece for the Amazon Kindle! A little kindle at the end of the book rainbow…”

Shaped like blown glass, using new Japanese synthetic fibre technology, fabric is sculpted into seamless, one piece lanterns. Innovatively awesome! By Nendo!

I love Gregory Beauchamping‘s prints! And, this quote he has as his etsy shop announcement:

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Kerouac”

The Crab Nebula

Sitting here on my little couch in amazement and admiration as I click through the Hubble Space Telescope‘s photo gallery.

It’s been a rough-ish week, but these posts from some of my favorite blogs brightened it up and made me smile:
