I love seeing inspiring collaborations between different industries and mediums so these photos from the Genlux spread on Katie Rodgers fantastically inspiring blog made me stop in my tracks. I love how effortsly everything melts together.
I was so excited to see the trailer for Moonrise Kingdom featured the work of Jessica Hische. Not only is her extensive catalog of lettering, design, and illustration work inspiring, her blog is always insightful, humorous, and interesting.
Her outside creative projects are equally as cool (i.e. the "Should I work for Free?" infographic) and now that I've seen her fonts section I'm noticing them everywhere. I absolutely love [hoard] beautiful book covers so this set speaks to my heart. You can buy them here.
I'm completely taken with these dreamlike images by Irene Suchockiof wild horses running in Camargue, France. I love how she is able to evoke a magical feeling through experimental photography techniques both in camera and in the digital darkroom.
A little Friday inspiration... papercut (top) By Elsa Mora (Elista), and a new book PAPER CUTTING (that she also designed the cover of) which includes another one of my top favorite artists, Rob Ryan. I'm looking forward to grabbing myself a copy!
Last week I took the liberty of doing some serious magazine shopping in Amsterdam's airport (I love it there, the hours went by so quickly browsing through all of their great shops!). I ended up bringing home some really inspiring European magazines: Flow, Marie Claire Idees, vtwomen, Jansen...and something my mom got me hooked on (UK based) Country Living. Each issue kept me entirely captivated through even the most ultimate stages of jetlag!
In the Dutch magazine vtwomen, Donna Wilson's animal ceramics caught my eye. I loved the simplistic & whimsical quality of her work.
Originally from Scotland, she's now based in the UK. The studio is committed to making treasured objects. Using UK based manufacturers and suppliers wherever possible, in the spirit of keeping craftsmanship alive.
Maggie Taylor's book "landscape of dreams" captivated my creative spirit and made me look at digital collage work in a new light. She breaks her pieces down into layers, giving you a creative road map into her work fusing vintage photographs, digital photographs, and elements from photoshop. A great resource for digital artists working with vintage photographs in photoshop, I'd highly recommend it!
Shown are a few plates from her surreal vision of Alice in Wonderland, from Modern Editions. So dreamy.
