These earthy paintings are by Lisel Ashlock. I really like the feel of them, and that they are painted on wood! Check out her site for more paintings, and a few sweet drawings too!

I know we’ve seen many stop=motion videos, but this one is so darn cute, I couldn’t resist sharing it! I really enjoyed the credits at the end too, because they show how they made the video! I’ve never really seen any behind-the-scenes on a stop-motion video before, so it was really interesting! Enjoy!

fashion cupcakes

These fancy cupcakes were photographed by Therese Aldgard and styled by Lisa Edsalv. They were reportedly inspired by Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin and Betsey Johnson, but I couldn’t find any shots of the Betsey Johnson ones, rather I found the Agent Provocateur cupcakes on Lisa’s site. So perhaps my source had it mixed up! At any rate, I would love to have a print of one of these photos! The Chanel or Louboutin shots especially would spruce my apartment right up! After these and the fashion lollipops, I wonder what kind of fashion foods are next!

Ali and Free People! Thanks for sharing and making me feel jealous of your office "outfits". You look hot. You should see what I wear to work everyday. I have to look like a man to fit in at my job. Day One - Black Blazer, white collared shirt, black pants, black heels. Day Two - Black Blazer, Light Blue collared shirt, black pants, black heels. Day Three - you get the picture.

I’m really entranced by these pictures from the show for Chanel’s resort fashions. I keep coming back to them! The hairstyles seem to call back to the early 20th century, or at least, they do to me! Every time I look at them I’m reminded of the flappers, or even faintly of the Gibson Girls.

The clothes seem kind of inspired by these eras as well – is this just me? Do you guys see it too? What do you think?
I saw this gorgeous set on The Moldy Doily. (She always posts awesome pictures!) Head over there to see many more shots from this show!

I love these pensive photos from Renate Aller‘s set Fixed Coordinates! They are so expansive and soothing! Each picture was taken at the same point on Westhampton Beach, hence the title of the set. It would be awesome to have a huge huge print of one of these – or even wall mural sized! See more of her work on Ruby Beets, or her site of course!

bernard pras

French artist Bernard Pras recreates pictures and portraits with found objects. His work is totally amazing.

Picture%203pras.png
Picture%204pras.png
Picture%205pras.png
An explanation from the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna: After an extensive and wide-ranging training, the artist Bernard Pras slowly began to focus on portraiture while experimenting with many different techniques. We were particularly interested in his photographed “composite portraits” of famous, frequently long-dead personalities… for which he selected composite elements that helped explain the sitter’s character or the reason for his or her fame. However, Pras adds an extra dimension of complexity: he distributes the individual elements that constitute his portraits in rooms – frequently locations chosen with great care – that participate in the creation of the composite artworks. …in the end it requires a camera lens to bring them together in a photograph, and to turn them into recognizable portraits.
Fantastic! Head on over to If It’s Hip, It’s Here for more (and bigger) pictures!

These are from a set by Brock Davis in which he explores how things that don’t shatter might look if they did shatter. A simple idea, but I like them – especially the coffee cup! It’s convincing.
See more on Brock’s site or Cyana Trend Land.
