I saw these gorgeous map quilts by Leah Evans on Design Crisis, and I am really impressed with them! I love maps, I love quilting, it’s a great combination! They sure look like they’d be difficult to make, though worth it! To see more of Leah’s work, check out her site, and for more interesting quilts, see here, here, and here.
These trees manipulated into sculptures are so interesting! They can be found at the Tree Circus of Axel Erlandson. Erlandson passed away in 1964, but people are still enjoying his trees at their home in Gilroy, California. More about arbor sculpture here, and more about Axel Erlandson here. Via.
I am obsessed by the graphics on these antique German notgeld, or emergency money. Notgeld was printed by small municipalities and town banks in Germany from WWI through the 1920′s and 30′s. Though it was not legal currency, it was generally accepted, and actually proved useful due to the outrageous inflation in Germany at the time. These scans are all from Flickr user Iliazd, who has an awesome notgeld set with something like 900 different marks in it! If you love sweet graphics or history, or both, be sure to give it a browse.

I’m really taken with these pictures by Kenichi Hoshine! There’s just something about the way the paint looks… when I first saw the tree one I thought there was pretty fabric torn all over it or something. See more at DesignDig.
Love her or not, these photos by Hedi Slimane look amazing. I love the styling and that first photo is my favorite, with the mix of decadent fabrics.
Check out the rest of the images on Slimane’s fashion diary…
I love that all the lights in these pictures are hearts! Color Me Katie did it by cutting out a little heart on a piece of paper and putting it over her camera lens. I would never have thought that the outcome would be lights turned to hearts! It would be cool to try with other shapes…
Check out this work by 10 year old graffiti artist Solveig. I love it!
That fresh tat is also by Solveig! Some guy had seen a lot of her work around and really liked it, so he requested a tattoo! I’m so impressed! There’s a little picture article about her on Telegraph UK, and it has a little bit more information about her in the blurbs. I couldn’t figure out where she’s from, though I’m sure it’s in there somewhere. Whatever, she’s awesome! Make sure to have a look at Solveig’s Flickr too, she has a ton of terrific pictures!
So I recently bought a copy of Kris’ latest zine, Cool Heart, and I love it so much! I seriously look at it like 10 times a day. And I’ve had it more than a week now! It’s so good, and really cute, I recommend it to anyone! Below, find a couple of pictures cut out from the zine. If you are a fan of Kris’ work you should definitely check out her site, she has lots for the eyes there! And if you want a copy of Cool Heart, get one here!
