Thomas Doyle, the creator of these incredible dioramas, says in his artist statement that he feels work done in such small scale allows for the intimacy one might feel peering into a museum display case or dollhouse. I completely agree – and I think that is one thing that is so appealing about these pieces! It is quite like looking into a dollhouse for me, except rather than wanting to jump in and join the scene, I am worried for the little people in these dioramas – they seem like they are in peril! Still, amazing work, and you can check out Thomas’ site to see more.

These simple little prints by Blanca Gomez are part of a cute set she did called Monsieur/Mademoiselle. I’m especially enjoying the rainy ones, since it is so so rainy here today! See the whole happy set here.

These pieces by Tara Donovan are both minuscule and immense! As always, I love to see small objects put together to create something huge, but even cooler that the small objects are so normal – buttons, pencils, styrofoam cups… That stuff never ceases to amaze me. See many more of her pieces here.

painted frames

I love these brightly colored frames that TotallyJuliaRAd paints. So clever! I love the old ornate frames with such eye-popping colors! She sticks illustrations from children’s books in them for the pictures. I think I feel a DIY coming on…

chickie bookmarks!

I downloaded these awesome chick bookmarks from JinJurup, and I love them so much! I glued the printer paper to card-stock before I cut mine out, just to make them more sturdy. They are so cute! Get yours here, for free of course!

fire-tagging

Can you believe this graffiti? It’s called ‘fire-tagging’ and the way it’s apparently done is the artist writes their signature in lighter fluid and then sets the area aflame. Well for a moment anyway, presumably they put the fire right back out, he he! It looks awesome! Reminds me of those high-school days playing with hair-spray and a lighter on the pavement…

This is a great way to inspire little arsonists to burn down buildings.

Okay, so there is no way I could have come up with a post for these two shots, but I just couldn’t resist sharing them with you, so we have this random post!
First of all, this tax-form dress is awesome! Read more about the creator here.

That, and I’m in love with this little guy…

Isn’t he sweet? Our graphic designer Kevin found this little cross-eyed Brussels Griffon on Flickr, with Keeping one eye on you as the caption. What a doll!!

Ah! How badly do you want one of these relief prints by Bryan Nash Gill? Amazing – I agree with Swissmiss when she says she would like to have one decorating her home…

I like your blog^^ The relief prints are really stunning, at first glance I thought it was a fingerprint in a strange form :)) Lilly :)

This installation by Marieke van der Bruggen is really interesting, and really pretty! All the hanging twigs, branches and leaves are made out of colored glucose – in other words, they’re basically hanging lollipops, and visitors to the installation are allowed to pick of parts of it and eat them. The show doesn’t open until next week though, and to boot it’s in Milan. But, if you do happen to be in Milan, you can check it out! It’s the Jewels and Joules show, being presented by the Design Connection Brainport and Design Academy Eindhoven. Sweet – literally!

birdies and treats

I love these illustrations by Kate Wilson! I love that they all feature birdies and sweets, but I love the cute little sayings that go with them even more! Too adorable! Kate also has a fun blog that’s worth checking out, Peonies & Polaroids.
