anshu

i got an email this weekend from one of our creative directors, merrie. she spends a lot of time in india, and shared this story with me about a little boy she befriended:
“this little boy’s name is anshu.

his family lives on the grounds of our friend kundan’s office and his father is the gardener.
kundan has developed a soft spot for him as he’s grown up because he is so ‘street smart’. he loves hanging with the big guys and doing what they do.
so, kundan decided to send him to a school that teaches english, which is the ticket to a better life in india. the school started only a few weeks ago, and we don’t know if the family will see the value of a good education over the years to come, but we are trying…hopefully it’s the start of something bigger.
i figured out no one had ever taught him his colors, so now everyday after ‘tutions’ he stops by our office and sorts my colors with me. (i work on my hindi, and he works on both hindi and english).”

hi merrie May god bless you and kundan abundantly for all your love and efforts !! Warm Regards Uma

this is chris butler, brother-in-law to our awesome graphic designer lizzy.
he describes himself/his art as “analytical, cheap, collage, fast, geometric, simple.”
cool stuff.

Courtney -Aug 16, 2009, 5:25PM
I can definitely see the analytical aspect. I just read the Time Traveler's Wife and for some reason this piece reminds me of the artwork Charisse does. I guess you have to know the book to know what I'm talking about though...

there are tons more pix. we’ll be posting them here and there, so keep your eyes open…

What a neat work environment! It seems too interesting to qualify as an office. My dream job would be in a place like that, but I'm not sure if that could ever happen with the accounting qualification that I'm getting. ;)

FP is so rad my whole closet is filled with it! FP is so rad my whole closet is filled with it! <3

ashley lande brown

i have no words…ashley’s art is incredible. i saw some of her work at needles & pins in san francisco back in may, and am glad to find her again.

Thaneeya -Aug 14, 2009, 4:43PM
Ashley's art is great!! So complex and multi-layered.

They have quite a Woodstock vibe, which is rather relevant as its the festival's 40th anniversary this weekend!

I love the abstract look and feel of these stretched satin pieces by Cynthia Ona Innis.

katiehov -Aug 16, 2009, 7:21PM
LUV these. And it's cool that they are on satin.
the Art Cupboard -Aug 12, 2009, 9:50PM

I have totally fallen in love with Aimee Sicuro‘s illustrations ever since I saw them on Black*Eiffel! I love the whimsy and the way she draws people. Though, the doggy on a bicycle might be my favorite! Check out more here.

Jane Mahler -Aug 16, 2009, 5:46PM
Wow....I'm so impressed with your work, with the comments about your work. You "go girl"!
Mark -Aug 13, 2009, 11:31AM
We'll look back on Aimee as a singular talent of her generation. She is truly unique.

Lyndie Dourthe‘s Fleurs.
These paper flower creations have been floating around the web lately and inspiring me to pull out my tissue paper and try my own hand at some nature-inspired creations!
Via Fffffound + Oh Joy!

Courtney -Aug 11, 2009, 2:00PM
Those are all so pretty! I wonder where you'd find directions on how to make them.

ball game?

I’ve posted about Julien Vallée‘s colorful paper work before, so I couldn’t resist sharing his new video with you! It’s almost like an ad for a fantastical game that can’t exist yet – but I wish it did!
