wreaths and nests

check out these amazingly beautiful drawings by artist Denise Nestor.  I particularly love this wreath series.  They are so beautifully composed and well drawn.  She has a show going on right now, which I would love to see, in Ireland.  It's up through Sept. 10 and The Bernard Shaw.  You can also check out her blog Trees for the Woods for more of her work.

Insect Orchestra

How fun is this insect invaded lookbook from uniqlo undercover?  Also loving those red and cream striped tights.  Wonder if they come in an adult size...

animal kingdom continued

I've continued working on my animal series.  I love working on these.  They're so fun and playful and I get to brush up on my drawing skills.  In addition to these I also have an elephant, a jack rabbit, another horse, and a pair of fawns.  Any other animals you would like to see?  I'm thinking maybe a peacock.  All available as prints, iphone cases, and laptop skins at society6.

movie interiors: factory girl

Andy's Factory:

 The iconic Warhol factory.  Imagine someone walking into a giant loft and deciding, "why don't we cover the entire thing in tinfoil?"  This is such a crazy fantastical space.  People coming and going as they please.  Parties every night.  It's amazing he got anything done in there.  I guess he did have all those worker bees around...  I have to say although Guy Pearce did a pretty good job playing Andy Warhol, no one does it better than David Bowie.

Edie's apartment:

I love Edie's apartment.  She has that whole back wall of white and red modular shapes that's repeated for her enormous headboard.  I love the way the did the color scheme of red white and blue without it coming off patriotic.  And may we please take a moment for those amazing windows?  The architecture of this building is so breathtaking.  Such a shame she burned it down.  Poor girl.

closet studies

Loving this series of embroidered closet insides by artist Allison Watkins.  Such a fantastic idea and so well executed.  Wouldn't it be fun to have something like this of your closet and go back years later trying to remember each sliver of fabric?  So nostalgic.

into the woods



I am completely in love with these amazing illustrations by Daniel Egneus.  I love his style of the vibrant yet loosely drawn red cape mixed with washes of color and detailed line drawings.  He adds a new level of eeriness with his fantastical depictions.  Just bought my copy.
