Levi’s Vintage SS15

Levi's Vintage SS15

i love the lookbooks by Levi’s Vintage Clothing because they always manage to almost fool me in believing they’re genuine vintage photos. remember this one? yeah. their latest lookbook takes inspiration from candid vintage collegiate fashion, which was famously documented by Japanese photographer Teruyoshi Hayashida  in the 1965 book Take Ivy. i actually blogged about it back in 2011. also check out this post featuring fashionable students at Princeton in 1969.

discovered the work of illustrator and designer Ciara Phelan on DWL this morning. i like the pic of Ciara on her website working with what looks like a glue gun. it’s always nice to be reminded that loads of creatives still make things with their hands.

Buy Some Damn Art: Sara Barnes

sarabarnes

i hope you have noticed that Kate Singleton’s rad shop Buy Some Damn Art is one of my wonderful sponsors (see yonder sidebar). if you don’t know about BSDA already here’s a quick rundown – every week Kate curates online shows featuring affordable original art from up-and-coming artists that you can buy, dammit! and buy you should. the latest artists to be featured is Sara Barnes, whose mixed media collages are right up my alley. Sara’s work draws inspiration from cubism, surrealism and especially Matisse’s cut outs. read more about her process here.

Val Britton

Val Britton makes immersive, collaged works on paper that draw on the language of maps.

The impetus for this body of work was my longing to connect to my father, a truck driver who drove eighteen-wheelers across the country; he died when I was a teenager. Based on road maps of the United States, routes my father often traveled, and an invented conglomeration, mutation, and fragmentation of those passageways, my works on paper help me piece together the past and make up the parts I cannot know.

Collages & Kings

i have been out of commission today, so just want to share more of my great friend amy’s collages for inspiration’s sake.

these images are all from amy’s collection of cutouts from magazines & some were possibly printed from the internet. unfortunately i can’t list any of the sources – but if you by any chance see something that is yours let me know!
