My plan is: to use this blog to keep track of styling ideas. At least that's what I'm telling myself these days to get me motivated to blog. I'm starting off with the artist Helga Steppan. These images are from her work called "See Through" which is a series of twelve photographs where she audited her personal belongings and divided them into a full spectrum of colour groupings. Definitely some ideas in styling to be found here.
Klas Fahlen is one of my favorite illustrators. These magazine holders are from his portfolio at the Art Department. The building-scape is totally genius, especially the second image with the plaza perspective illustration.
(And yes, I'm trying to post more these days. I know, a blog with daily posts?? What a concept.)
With the Stationery Show coming up, it's been pretty busy over here and blog neglect has totally set in. But I did want to post about Greg Lamarche, a collage artist, whose work I saw on White Walls, an urban art gallery, in San Francisco. I can't believe I haven't been to this gallery yet. And I'm bummed I missed the Ian M. Johnson show back in February. I'd love to get one of his pieces for my home.
On a happy note, I was able to get tickets to the Flight of the Conchords show in SF. Thank goodness they added another date.
I'm nutty about sculptural wire, so I've had Antonino Sciortino bookmarked for a while now ever since I discovered him through HFHA. His work is so architectural, it's just like having a mini-Calatrava in your hand. If you love sculptural wire, his website is full of inspirational stuff.
I was hoping to post more this week, but I've had my hands full with the kids. Mom (aka. the babysitter) went on a 2-week vacation starting this week so I've been playing a ton of Candyland and Crazy 8's with my daughter and launching missile attacks on Lego fortresses with my son instead of doing some real work! (Let me say, I've been kicking ass in Candyland.) Luckily, I get a tiny bit of a vacation myself starting today as my husband takes over kid-watching duties. I'm leaving for Portland with some friends this morning and meeting up with a few more friends over there. Fun, fun, fun. If only it wasn't 35 degrees-ish over there. In any case, I can't wait to visit Canoe and the Ace Hotel. Have a great weekend!
