olymipia le tan in jalouse

I couldn’t resist posting a few of these pictures from a little editorial in the April Jalouse Magazine! They are stitched representations of various designers by Olympia Le Tan – I wish her website were finished! I also wish these pictures had scanned a little better, because in the magazine they are just so cute!

The tabloid format from the first image is adorable!

I love these images by Kari Herer! How smart to mix flowers with old insect illustrations! It looks so cool! I saw these on Poppytalk, and I loved what one of her commenters said, that it makes bugs almost look romantic! So true! Be sure to check out Kari’s blog too!

These photographs of beautiful antique kimonos are from a Flickr set by Neville Trickett of Saint Verde Blog. I love them so much! They put me a little bit in mind of those pieces by Sunny Belliston that I posted the other day. Just wonderful!

There are so many amazing pictures in this set, called The Now Smash Of Style, by Craig McDean for Italian Vogue. I had trouble narrowing it down to just a few pictures to show you! Dark as they are, these pictures are still just exquisitely beautiful! Check out this post on The Moldy Doily to see the rest of the set – larger sized images too!
Gosh I would love to get my hands on that hat in the first picture, and the corset in the bottom one…

These photos are absolutely gorgeous! They evoke so much emotion when you look at them. They are like a mixture of dark Edwardian style with a twist of modern. I love the first picture where the red hat gives the photo a real pop of color.

these images make me think of a rags to riches story. so dark + scary but at the same time they evoke beauty + grace.

These crazy photoshopped pictures by Katya Ford are really appealing! I especially love the clothes that are replaced by scenes from outer space – boy I would love to have something real like that!

light in tokyo

This video is just absolutely amazing. I can’t describe it any other way!

remanence : variance from Samuel Cockedey on Vimeo.

This video was shot in Tokyo by Samuel Cockedey. From his site: Shot over the span of a year with Canon DSLRs (mostly 350d), processed with Lightroom (raw files color adjustment and resizing)/VirtualDub (deshaker/deflicker filters)/Sony Vegas (editing). Original rendered in 1080p.
Amazing!
Via.

simple and lovely

These mixed media pieces by Sunny Belliston are so simple and unassuming at first glace, but you get sucked in! The colors, the shapes, something about them is just very pleasing! Do you agree? I would love to have these on the walls of my apartment to look at when I’m sitting… and thinking….
Dear Ada found these!

I’m going crazy over the art of Chiara Bautista! Her work is kind of bizarre, and there is just much to look at within each piece – I’m totally mesmerized! Apparently she also goes by the name Milk, which is the name on her Myspace page. Check it out if any of the work above interests you – there’s a ton of it on there, and in better quality and sizes. Awesome!

wow, those are really amazing! the second one is my favorite
Alyssa -May 08, 2009, 7:43PM
I'm pretty sure the second piece was inspired by Saint Sebastian, who was martyred by being tied to a tree and shot to death with arrows.

circle colors

These pretty circles are part of a set by Ben Branagan called Sections & Slices. Don’t you really like them? I sure do! See the rest right here!

found on the beach

Artists Gilles Cenazandotti and Thierry Lede recently created a new group, Clear Art Planet, whose main mission is to go around the world cleaning up beaches. The awesome pieces above were made with the items they cleaned off of the beach in Cap Corse Corsica. I adore these pieces, they are so beautiful! It’s amazing though that those are just the items from a beach in Corsica! Probably not even close to all of them, in fact… It gets me thinking of all the stuff on the beaches of the world…
You can visit Clear Art Planet’s site, but be warned it’s in French!

These beautiful drawings are by Hanna Müller, who has a really cute story on her blog about how she started drawing: When I grew up I did some serious attempts to write my feelings in a diary, it started off good until my brother ferret out where it was hidden. It didn’t matter how much I tried to hide it, he always found it and spread my most private thoughts to everyone who cared to listen. So I stopped writing my feelings down and started drawing what I felt instead. My pictures became my diary and still are. It feels nice to draw them away. So sweet…

I just spent way too long looking at every painting on Josh Keyes’ site, and after I post this I’ll probably go back to look some more! I can’t put my finger on what I like so much about his work, but I really really do! His acrylic paintings are strangely beautiful, and I love the subject matter and message. If you check out his paintings, try starting at the bottom! His older work is at the bottom and it’s cool to see the work develop.

I had the lucky chance to see some of his work in person at the David B. Smith gallery in Denver. I couldn't even believe how detailed it was. He has a few paintings that are more grungy/urban rather than nature focused, and in those he uses these little shocks of neon that I love.
