These photographs may not seem like much, until you realize that the subject is the sky at varying stages of sunset! What an awesome idea! Gorgeous too. They’re by Ann Woo – check out her site here.

this is cool. I probably wouldn't have realized they were photographs, either - they look like paintings.

These are beautiful photos. I love art and recently discovered a very cool artist, Paris Gerrard. Her women are hauntingly beautiful and mysterious. Check her out. www.ParisGerrard.com She is well worth a post on. I think that the readers will love her.

If you’ve visited Philly, or live here, you may already be familiar with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, which is responsible for helping Philly be the city with the most murals in the USA – we have more than 2,700 – covering everything from famous residents to jeep parts. The festive trucks shown above are part of one of the Mural Arts Program’s latest projects. Partnering with Philadelphia University’s Design Center, together they wrapped 10 of the city’s garbage & recycling trucks in these funky all-over prints! They’ve been doing the rounds with the rest of the trucks since Earth Day, and the other day I saw one on my street! It sounds silly but I was excited! I think next they should wrap all the rest of the trucks…

They should paint Will Smith's portrait on one as the "Fresh Prince." "In West Philadelphia, born and raise, on a playground is where I spend most of my days..."

These wonderful colorful paintings are by the aptly named Julianna Bright! Such a perfect name for an artist who uses bright color! I’ve been browsing around her site all morning, getting my fill of her fun little people and their animal buddies… Check out her Etsy shop if you feel the need for a print!

I’ve been really enjoying the clever images of Sarah Illenberger. She does lots of different work for companies like Vanity Fair, NY Times and Nike, all of which is original and fun like the stuff shown above! Check out her website for more fun stuff.

These great fashion illustrations are by Monsieur Qui. Aren’t they cool?! I really like them, especially the watercolor accents – very inspiring! Be sure to check out Monsieur Qui’s blog too, as he keeps some work there that can’t be seen on his website!

by the light of the gourd

il_430xN.63485771.jpg
I love these pretty and original light shades made by StudioTempera! They are gourds! StudioTempera, which is based in Turkey, hollows them out, decorates them, and then pokes little holes in them to be filled with beads for colored light, or nothing for normal light! They are so beautiful!
Apartment Therapy found these!

more giant knits

These pictures are of a piece Christien Meindertsma created for the exhibit Design for a Living World, which just opened at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum in New York. The exhibit aims to tell a unique story about the life-cycle of materials and the power of conservation and design.
For Christien’s piece, she used wool from a sustainable sheep ranch in Idaho and created a “flock” of different knit parts, each one made from 3.5 pounds of wool, the yield of a single sheep. Then she sewed them all together to make one huge and heavy knit rug!
It reminds me a bit of those phat knits from before. I love them both! There is something about the thick texture of these giant knits that is irresistible!

cassandra rhodin pillowcases

You may recall when I posted this and other pieces by Cassandra Rhodin a while back…
To my delight, she recently did some pillowcases for H&M Home, and they look so awesome!

Boy I would love to have a set! They’re so pretty!

These pictures by Caroline De Vries are really fun! The bright colors remind me of those pictures of the Indian festival Holi that I posted a while back. Check out the rest of Caroline’s work on her site.
