HAPPY THANKSGIVING + SMOKE SIGNALS

Happy Thanksgiving All!

That’s just a funny Badge I made as a quick weird little Thanksgiving project. But don’t you feel like you deserve an award for the monstrous amount of food you are about to consume today? I feel like its National Eating Contest today. Especially me, I have two Thanksgivings to go to. Don’t worry I bought some super cute elastic band pants.

And in lieu of Thanksgiving, just wanted to say that I am thankful for this awesome SMOKE SIGNALS post by Lauren, from HONESTLYWTF , an awesome+very popular blog filled with very cool hunting, great DIYs, inspiring art features and great travel posts. The colorific  photography and film is from the awesome duo of New York-based Floto + Warner, Jeremy Floto and Cassandra Warner. They create a mystical  and magical moment in these colorfully smoke filled abandoned buildings, and my fav WALLS and Nevada desert for their latest photo series. I’ve gotta agree when Lauren writes, “The video is especially mesmerizing, with colorful smoke moving along to Bon Iver’s moody Holocene.” CHECK OUT THE VIDEO HERE!

Bergdorf Goodman Holiday Windows 2011

It’s a little crazy how it’s Holiday season already. Christmas lights and trees for sale. & Holiday Windows! Window Displays are taken for granted. That’s just a personal opinion. I was guilty of that until I started working on displays for Anthropologie. There’s a LOT of work that goes into that. I mean amongst all Window Displays; there are some boring ones, and some clever-but-okay-ones. And then there are some AMAZING STANDOUT ONES. Here’s to the recent unveiling of the infamous Bergdorf Goodman Holiday Windows

Warning: This post is awesomely picture heavy…. so  Continue reading

It’s a wrap

The Kate Spade Blog is so much fun. I have so much fun wrapping presents. I can’t imagine how fun it was to wrap this car. Now I really want to drive it!

This is how it goes…

Awesome little vignette, à la strataflora

Add some coffee, cigarettes, moleskine, laptop with 50 million tabs, and phone with the wordpress app and you’ve got my life.

THE LAND OF NOD & KICKSTARTER

NOTE: I apologize for the amount of times I use the word “awesome” in this post.

I love Personal projects, and sure this one isn’t mine. But a  few days ago I found someone’s awesome Personal Project. It compelled me to write this post because I  truly truly LOVE it and if I had a lot of money$ I would help them much more than whatever measly pledge I can scrounge after my next paycheck. (Note: I do not know these people IRL, but their project sounds super cool!) But alas, I can only pledge so much. So I’m writing this post so that hopefully it might help to spread the word. I mean Who doesn’t what a mural by Andy?*

The Fall

I recently watched The Fall directed by Tarsem Singh. This Film premiered in 2006, and was released in 2008 when presented by David Fincher, and Spike Jonze. AND I only found out about it NOW. Shame, Shame on you. I wish I had learned about it sooner. Because this is now my favorite movie. It is Amazing. Beautiful. Touching. Imaginative. Inspiring. You can really feel the heart and thought that went into this film. There is so much to say about it but so much I can’t say. Because you need to go see this for yourself. Rent it, buy it. Watch it in high quality because it’s so beautiful. If you need more convincing, look at these screenshots and watch the trailer, at the end of post.

Wallpaper

A Love of Walls comes hand in hand with

a Love of WALLPAPER.

For me, it all started with PAYTON TURNER and her installations of Sticker Wallpaper.
