It took Wataru Itou, an art-student in Tokyo, four years to create this intricate paper castle! It’s called Umi no Ue no Oshiro, or Castle on the Ocean, and aside from the pretty lights, it features a ferris wheel and a moving train! Absolutely amazing.

The level of detail is truly amazing. I don't understand how someone can spend years doing something when I can barely make through an episode of the Simpsons

The amazingly vibrant colors in these knit sculptural installations by Sarah Applebaum are waking me right up! I love how bold they are, and so texturally interesting! I’d love to wear that robe in the last photo as well, any day! Read more about Sarah on her site, and also on Beautiful/Decay which has a nice write-up about her.

I love all of Jennifer Davis‘ paintings, and I had so much trouble deciding on only a few to post here! Aren’t they great?! I think my favorite is the manatee balloon, though those little sea lions are pretty fabulous! Check out all of her work on her site – more soft colors and interesting subject matter! You won’t be disappointed!

What do you guys think of these crazy colorful designs by Timothy James Andrews? They’re from his Autumn/Winter collection for 2009-2010, called, as you might have guessed, A-Block-A-Brick-Toe. I really like them, even though I know I could never pull them off myself! The colors and shapes reminded Susie Bubble of Tetris blocks – I’m leaning toward Legos, but it’s the same basic idea!
Check out Dazed Digital for more pictures of the line!

I love that use of flourescent light bulbs (or something that looks a lot like it)! Another cool use is in Mika's Grace Kelly music video.

When the paper company Arjowiggins unveiled its new fancy paper line Curious Collection, they wanted to do something with a lot of impact to announce it! With the help of French photographer Grégoire Alexandre, they did! Aren’t these pictures incredible?! See some fun behind-the-scenes video here! (Along the sidebar.)

I love Kirsten Harper‘s sweet illustrations! Especially the book alligators, they’re so cute- my favorite! Check out her site for more!

Remember Carrie’s cool time-lapse video from yesterday? She videotaped the lobby from down the hallway for quite a few hours to create a time-lapse view of the creation of our lobby garden!
However, leaving the camera recording the hallways for so long meant she caught some other interesting goings-on as well. You guys will love this clip of one of our production designers hamming it up! I wish I could dance like that…

These gorgeous prints are screen-printed on fabric by Mark Hearld. Too dreamy and soft! Check out this site for more.

I love these shots from a set posted over on KnightCat. The layers and embellishments are fabulous! And the vests! Do any of you know what magazine these photos came from? Looks like maybe French Vogue, but I couldn’t say… See more pictures from the set on KnightCat!

D. Jane -Jul 06, 2009, 12:52PM
Thanks for posting these photos Pruitt! Surely they are French Vogue as that is their font styling. Reminds me much of Isabel Marant's Spring (and fall, even) line. Have you see this? If not, enjoy.... bisous http://www.isabelmarant.tm.fr/

Those are some fabulous vests. That last vest is my favorite, not sure if it's just because it's Jacksonesk and I feel drawn to his style at the moment, but either way it looks great.

I’m really enjoying Erin Morrison‘s otherworldly mixed media pieces this morning. Just drop me off in one of those landscapes… I’ll spend Monday there!

Aren’t these embroideries pretty? I really really like them! I feel like I’ve never seen any needlework like that before! I would love to have a shirt or a dress with any of the above designs on it! They were all created by the talented Renilde Depeuter. Sweet!

Hey FP! I´m a frequent reader of your blog and I really like FP clothes! Too bad I can´t buy then in Estonia. Anyway, I really like the ethnic touch in your pieces and I wanted to tell you about Estonian national costumes, because they are really beautiful and colourful! Maybe you get some inspiration from them too. Here are some links to some great Estonian designers´ sites who have used our traditional patterns: http://www.lviira.com/index.php?id=38 and also if you google a guy called Aldo Jarvsoo you can find some pics about his national costumes inspired works... And the greatest display of our national costumes is coming this weekend, when we have our huge song festival with tens of thousands of singers and spectators! Here´s a clip from the last one, two years ago http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8as6Q9pYmI (and a couple of years ago there was also an american documentary made, called "The Singing Revolution", if somebody is interested). Wish you all the best and greeting from Estonia where we are preparing our costumes for the festival once again :)!

I know this picture has already been making the rounds on lots of blogs lately, but it’s so cute I couldn’t resist posting it, just in case you hadn’t seen it! The photo is by David Sykes, who tells us about the photo on his site:
This latest piece of personal work is all shot in one shot on 5×4 transparency. I comissioned a model maker, Ridley West, to make a giant plate that we could attach to the wall, and with the help of Jennie Webster who sourced some amazing balloons, this shot was the result.
Those balloons really are amazing!
