As a lover of words, I am going to begin posting a “visual representation” of some of my favorite quotes. Bare with me as my Photoshop skills are rather amateur. But, I hope the words can speak for themselves! The first being by one of my all-time favorite authors Chuck Palahniuk. This quote is from the book Invisible Monsters which I highly suggest you read if you haven’t already.
It’s finals week for me which is why I have been virtually non-existent. Once Friday comes, I will have an entire week to catch up & de-stress! In the meantime, here’s a handful of inspiring links to look at:
Beklina: A delightful green botique -I’ve fallen head-over-heels in love with their clothing.
“When Spring is Still a Dream” photograph by StevensonMarie – I need more of this in my life right now. I can’t wait for spring!
Hope that will tide you over for a bit! Enjoy!
I have loved Frank Chimero‘s illustrations for a while now. However, it wasn’t until recently that I discovered he has a shop with very reasonably priced posters ($20!) of his work. There are so many lovely posters to choose from! You should most definitely check them all out if you haven’t already. He knows what’s up.
I have a brand new banner & (somewhat) new layout for the blog. The banner was made by a good friend of mine. He’s quite good, don’t you think? It fits my personality quite well. Besides, who doesn’t love clouds? I mean, c’mon. They’re the essence of cute.
So, before I call it a night, I simply had to share this brilliant poster by graphic designer Eivind Søreng Molvær. Really, I don’t think any explanation is necessary. You know how I love to italicize for emphasis. If you’re interested, he’s selling them in a signed limited edition of 100 right here for £35.
If you love minimalism & white space, you will most assuredly enjoy the installation pieces by Igor Eskinja. I am typically not a lover of abstract pieces, but I find that his work is extremely aesthetically pleasing & realistic enough for me to be able to decipher some sense of meaning & form.
Also, according to designboom, his installations are typically thrown out after the show is over. I have no idea if this is typical for an installation such as this. But, in a throw-away culture such as ours today, it’s interesting to see that it is creeping into the artistic realm as well.
