papercuts

2 of our knits designers recently traveled to tokyo. while they were there, they met up with their friend ryohei, a very talented artist.
he offered to do paper cuts of them during dinner, and they captured this awesome video of it.

the artist’s name is ryohei tanaka. he has some really amazing work on his website. check it out by clicking on the image below.

by the way, the song in the video is “happy endings” by pizzicato five.

lighten up

one of the best things about the holidays are the twinkling lights that decorate streets and houses…seeing them brings back that childhood anticipation of holidays, parties and the end and beginning of another year. color and light played a big role in our new catalog, and we’re lighting up our stores as well! our display team just finished installing the in-store holiday displays and shared some of the images that inspired them…

in keeping with the photography theme of the day…did you ever have to make a pinhole camera at school when you were younger? i didn’t, but i kind of wish i had. luckily someone at work showed me this site where you can download and print out a pdf of a cute little pinhole camera that you can make with just a few additional supplies.
plus, look how cool the photos can turn out…

The second pinhole image is super gorgeous! I love the corner sunburst and the way the flowers and grasses are gravitating towards the sun!
Alicia -Nov 04, 2009, 3:38PM

have you seen our new november catalog? it’s so pretty and full of light…
the inspiration behind this catalog, with the holidays quickly approaching, was the play of light and color in the images. i like it because instead of feeling dark and cold like a lot of holiday stuff, it feels very warm and soft.

to get these cool effects they strung christmas lights in front of the camera…something i might have to try.
you can view the entire catalog here.

there once was an artist who really wanted to encourage the neighborhood to get to know each other. so, he decided to help them. he gathered all of the neighborhood doormats and brought them to a gallery. the neighbors were stumped by the mysterious thievery. then, each neighbor received an invitation to come and get their property. later, they arrived at the gallery and saw that their doormats were much prettier together than apart. they began to talk and get to know each other – at least i hope that is how it turned out for the sake of kevin harman, the artist behind the installation…
