haasbroek t-shirts

remember the Z-A series by jaco haasbroek? well, he’s submitted a design to threadless that shows the entire character alphabet and people need to vote for it so it can be printed. i would personally LOVE this on a t-shirt! so please hop over to threadless and vote update! the…

lovis corinth

Women’s Half-portrait with Straw Hat (1898) – Lovis Corinth i’ve decided to start doing a daily painting post. i don’t think it warrants an explanation, it’s just that i like paintings a lot.


i already have a bicycle (which i love – it’s a black & white cruiser with white tyres) but i just can’t help looking at bicycle sites. the latest one, which my brother sent me, is globe bicycles. there’s something about white/cream tyres that makes everything classier, non?


then i took a trip through my bookmarks (i have the most ridiculous folder called “things to buy” – full of things i could never actually afford to buy) and dug up this gem of a company that i was perving over a while ago – probably my favourite of all – abici italia:


then there’s also workcycles – they have these classic dutch city bikes called oma & opa:


more? ok.  gazelle: (dutch)


skeppshult: (swedish)


pashley: (british)


velorbis: (danish)


sögreni (danish)


and there are probably loads more i don’t even know about…. i wish everybody cycled (to commute, i’m not talking lycra-clad road hogging cyclists). if south african cities & towns were more bike friendly it would be a dream. like copenhagen.

fast, fresh & green

one of my favourite illustrators/designers, jessica hische, did the design for this new cookbook of vegetarian dishes – fast fresh & green by susie middleton. definitely the kind of recipe book i’d buy as i am partial to fast yet healthy food. i’m the kind of girl who’d buy a tub of…

silky soft doo wop wonders

the fleetwoods – come softly to me (1959) i’m not sure where i heard this song the first time, perhaps in the background of a video on youtube. but i LOVE it. sometimes doo-wop can be slightly annoying, but this is just right – would perfectly accompanying a scene in…

pigeon post

beautifully illustrated valentines cards by canadian design company vanguard works, under their paperie label pigeon post. based on the theme of undying love.  inspired by myths, folklores & ancient stories from around the world.


i really like the sessùn lookbook for spring/summer 2010. oh and the clothes too, of course.

cosmic love

when i heard florence & the machine’s single rabbit heart the first time, i was totally blown away (that warranted a number of repeat playings), and as i made my way through their album lungs i was doubly blown away by track #9 – cosmic love. this song has resurfaced…

anja mulder

another fantastic flickr discovery, anja mulder lives in the netherlands and is a freelance photographer & illustrator.
