the first thing i noticed about new British label Finery were the interesting cuts, shapes and lines that form the basis of their debut collection. the clothing is exciting and modern (and different!) but also classic enough that you can wear one of their pieces forever.
wow, i feel like my biggest and only post these days to you is my mid week distraction. don’t get me wrong – i LOVE doing it. and i love that you love it. but i’ve found myself so busy with non-blog stuff lately that i’m neglecting this old bird… and that just WON’T DO.
not to be confused with National Geographic’s own tumblr, Vintage National Geographic instead features scanned in pages from vintage copies of National Geographic going back to the 1800’s. you’ll recognise that familiar halftone printing look that jumps off these old clippings, and it’s almost like you can smell the pile of old magazines that you used to page through at grandma’s house.
it’s Wednesday already? wait, it’s 10 days into March already? wait, we’re almost 1/4 of a way through the year? WAIT. just, wait.
Hsiao-Ron Cheng is a Taiwanese digital artist & illustrator whose work i discovered via Cath of Wolf Eyebrows (whose blog is consistently great – follow her!) she is commissioned for work by various clients in the fashion and design industries, but i most love her wonderful fashion portraits that she does for self promotional purposes.
this is one of the coolest things i’ve seen in a while. Onehundredforty is an art experiment that merges smart programming with beautiful design to make personal art prints – from a tweet of your choice. basically you select a tweet, Onehundredforty generates your design, and they print and send it to you.
this week i wrapped up a new blog design for the wonderful local food stylist, recipe developer and food blogger Sam Linsell of Drizzle & Dip. Sam and i actually live in the same neighbourhood – we are known to bump into each other at our local woolworths (she once caught me there lingering in the cheese section). so it was a lovely project for me to work on, especially because i got to look at her food photography all day long. something which you shouldn’t do when you haven’t eaten, by the way.
