I am loving this densely layered folk-inpsired collage by Hilary Pecis. It makes me think of mountains and caves made from patchworked sweaters!
She currently has a show at Receiver Gallery in San Fransisco. The show is called The Paradigm Shift.

the world in stitches

I noticed this in one of the glass display cases at our company’s coffee shop. I have been thinking about it and ways for me to make one myself all day! Regular readers won’t be surprised, since they know my affinity for maps and map-inspired things! Still, I am so impressed! Someone put so much work into this – they even stitched in quite a few of the countries! So great…

mushroom girls virus

This book looks so beautiful! Deanne Cheuk illustrated this book called Mushroom Virus Girls: A Guide to the Identification and Study of Our Commoner Fungi with Special Emphasis on the Edible Varieties. You can see some of the amazing illustrations on Deanne’s web site. The book is sold out on the site, but you can still buy it on Amazon.
The cover is supposedly the world’s first fully embroidered linen cloth cover. I would probably want to take the book apart and frame all the artwork!
Thanks to design for mankind for the link:)

What a great idea to have everyone send in photos of themselves wearing Free People clothes in real life! I love the way you all think on this site.

To my delight, last night there appeared this little camper in our lobby! It was created by our display team to go along with our current outdoorsy-themed trends. The frame is made out of bamboo, and they enlisted the help of a local girl out of West Philly to create it! The binding for the joints of the frame is made from old bicycle tires! Other than the frame, everything else on or in the camper is made from paper or cardboard! It’s incredible, and totally adorable! It makes me want to climb right in…. :)

I would definitely buy a real FP camper... that's amazing :)

Anthro’s Paper Dress

The other day I was walking through our cafeteria building and I saw this gorgeous dress! It just appeared somehow – I did some snooping and found out it was created by our sister brand Anthropologie…. Stunning!

koons at versailles

If you’re not familiar with American art star Jeff Koons, I’m sure the balloon animal at least rings a bell. Koons has been granted a solo show exhibiting in the gardins and interior of Versailles. Check out the New York Times for a slide show and notes on the exhibit.
(There’s also a beautiful photo of the exterior of the palace reflected in one of Koons’ metallic golden sculptures!)

Woah, his work looks so crazy in contrast to the traditional styling of Versailles! I love it. He had an exhibition at the Wexner Center for the Arts here in Columbus, Ohio on my campus at the Ohio State University. I'm fortunate and grateful for the Wex because it brings in such innovative new art. There's a Warhol exhibition going on there right now!

Pomme Chan

Since we’re in the midst of our Fashion Illustration Contest, I’ve had fashion art on the brain lately. The stunning illustrations above are by Bangkok-raised Graphic Designer Pomme Chan. All of her work is really interesting and gorgeous! If you’re looking for somewhere to web-surf, be sure and browse the work on her site – tons of goodies for the eyes!

steampunk workshop

Maybe the aesthetics of modern technology just isn’t your thing. Do you ever wish your computer looked a little more at home with the rest of your vintage and antique decor? Maybe a Victorian style all-in-one PC would look better. Or a how about a pretty brass LCD frame?
You have to check out the Steampunk Workshop, chronicling one man’s adventures of making the new look old, or the old look different. One of the first project he ever did was outfitting an old school bus, and there is also a tutorial for doing tin etchings on old Altoid boxes.

migration mural

Migration / Part 01 / London / By Hellovon from Hellovon on Vimeo.
This video will show you the installation of a mural at the Truman Brewery in London called Migration. The incredible bird illustrations were done by London-based artist Hellovon. This month, the idea will “migrate” to a second exhibition space, the side of the Epeis Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Makes me want to fly…
