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!

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!

Brooklyn-based artist Steve Keene not only creates numerous paintings, but he also makes fabulous plywood sets and props! Recently he has collaborated with the Silver Jews, Pavement, The Apples in Stereo, Soul Coughing, Dave Matthews Band and Merzbow to create album art, video sets, stage sets and posters – so you can imagine our delight when he agreed to make the props for our latest site video! The video will be appearing on our main website on Monday, so make sure to tune in and watch for Steve’s props! Don’t miss it!

I’ve been getting lost in an awesome photostream of work by fashion photographer Tom Palumbo this afternoon. I love his compositions, and just the feel of his work in general! So inspiring!

I’ve been really into this blog Artist Quote of the Day. The quotes are typically from visual artists, and the entries feature images of their work and some brief brographical information. But today was Michael.

the art of fireworks

Using controlled detonations of fireworks on paper, Rosemarie Fiore creates these:

fioreArt3.jpg
From the artist herself:
I bomb blank sheets of paper with different fireworks including color smoke bombs, jumping jacks, monster balls, fountains, magic whips, spinning carnations, ground blooms, rings of fire, and lasers. As I work, I create imagery by controlling the chaotic nature of the explosions in upside-down containers.
When the paper becomes saturated in color, dark and burned, I take it back to my studio and collage blank paper circles onto the image to establish new planes and open up the composition. I then continue to bomb the pieces. These actions are repeated a number of times. The final works contain many layers of collaged explosions and are thick and heavy.

See more of Rosemarie’s fireworks drawings here!

EricGjerge has an amazing set on Flickr where he has uploaded images from Owen Jones’ book The Grammar of Ornament. I could look at all the prints and patterns forever – there is so much inspiration on each page! Check out the whole set for many more awesome pictures like the ones above, in bigger sizes too!

This book was hugely important for me at one point. If you like this, look into Taschen's massive The World of Ornament. It is huge and comes with digital versions of every page.

i did a thesis design project on this whole idea. i love the book
