I LOVE box people. Seriously. I may need to start a collection and put little jelly beans in their tummies. Link: Marshall Alexander.

This is hands down my favorite embroidered handkerchief to date. My favorite art is often cultural, and you can’t get much more “cultured” than Facebook, yes? Link: Kate O’Connor.

Another fantastic Christmas idea— doodle a box for your loved one! Although I have to say, unless your name is Vincent Bechet, you may have a few less-than-impressed recipients. Link: the box doodle project.

A nice photo series from Henry Hadlow and Ed Cornish. Rather than manipulating their work through Photoshop, the two used a camera to mimic common Photoshop effects showing that sometimes the best photography should be left untouched. Or unREtouched, I suppose. Link: Henry Hadlow

depicting motion.

Depicting Motion is a series by Vassillis which reverses the process of a normal film. Each image shows a tiny portion of the space for just one moment in time. Very interesting results. Link: www.ma-genta.co.uk

At least, I’m assuming that says $3.50 and not $350, because boy would that be one heck of a sandwich. Link: New Collectors Club.

I’ve been craving wall decals that aren’t boring lately and drove over to Blik in Venice this weekend to find they were closed. :( Sadness. BUT, I came home to find new Domestic designs, which is like my ALL-TIME favorite decal place in the world. And I sort of love — Continue reading

Justin sent me an email with his work this afternoon and MY GOODNESS, I just have to kick off the 3-day weekend with his vision. I like to think these are little aliens laughing in their own secret code at how badly we’ve messed up our planet. Or… planets? Link: — Continue reading

This is one of those fascinating projects that you see beautifully and wonderfully executed and wonder why the majority of our culture deems art as “wall-hangings.” Well done, Charlie. Well done. Link: Human Mirror at Improv Everywhere

Oh Zoe Papadopoulou. Had I discovered you a tad earlier, I would have followed you all the way to RCA. And by follow, I mean stalk. So we’re clear. But I didn’t. What i did discover, however, is your project entitled ‘Knitted Shields,’ which I looooove. And even more so, — Continue reading
