the first ever philagrafika festival starts this weekend in philly, and it is expected to be one of the largest art events in the US and the world’s largest print-related exhibition.  this will be a recurring event that celebrates the role of print in contemporary art.   more than 300 artists will be represented at more than 80 venues throughout philly! i really like what artist gunilla klingberg has done with the entrance at moore college:

“certain things, they should stay the way they are. you ought to be able to stick them in one of those big glass cases and just leave them alone.” – j.d. salinger

j.d. salinger, author of my favorite book of all time, passed away yesterday at age 91.

This was such a great book, i'm really glad they made us read this in school. My favorite quote is: If a girl looks swell when she meets you, who gives a damn if she's late? Nobody.
Susanna-Cole -Jan 28, 2010, 7:34PM
I've heard mentions of this book, for almost as long as I can remember, however, just the other day, I finally added it to my list of "books-to-read", (unfortunately, it was never assigned to me to read, in school or I may have found it long ago), and now to hear he's passed is really quite sad, but hearing everyone talk about the book, and him, once again, really motivates me to go read it already! :) xoxo, S-C

Post image for another new store opening!

we’re very excited to be opening a new store at space 15 twenty in los angeles!

if you’re not familiar with space 15 twenty, its a unique retail setting where each store is connected by an outdoor courtyard, and includes a performance space for live music, an art gallery, and a monthly pop up shop.

stop by tomorrow for the grand opening party, with food, drinks, and vintage vinyl spun by dj dez!

Post image for not just any book

after today’s DIY post, an fp girl here at the home office showed me a project she did, also involving butterflies. at first glance, it’s a normal book…

…but then you open it:

Post image for fp loves…

another new feature on the blog!

“fp loves” will take a look at an item we’re really excited about and get word from the buyer on why they love it so much!  first up: the beryll vintage artisan asphalt boots… hand-distressed from restored leather sourced from the 60’s and 70s.

and, it turns out vogue italia loves the beryll boots too! they were featured in the cover story, shot by steven miesel, for the january 2010 issue!

the beryll boots are available on our website, here.

moo -Feb 05, 2010, 7:31PM
I can't believe how horrific that model looks.... it's hard to imagine talking about her stylish boots in the post and missing the point that she looks like death walking. It is the saddest statement on where a women's body image has been shoved to. In a corner with nowhere to go.
Taylor -Feb 04, 2010, 10:50AM
Wow those models look sick!!

one of the girls here at the office told me about this awesome DIY project that she’s going to try, and i think i might have to try it as well! it is so simple and there are so many fun things you can do with it…

what you need:

1. some pretty paper – this would be a great way to reuse your old free people catalogs!

punches

2. punches in whatever shape or size you want – i love the idea of using varying sizes.

3. some zots (clear adhesive dots) and 3d-dots (sticky foam cubes) to add some dimension by placing the butterflies at varying heights, like this:

6a00e553eafb068833011278dc8b9828a4-800wi

4. a picture frame with 3d mat board

once you have your paper picked out, start punching! lay out the shapes on a piece of paper as you punch, in whatever pattern you feel like.  then you’re just going to attach them using the zots and 3d dots, placing the shapes at varying heights.

lollychops has a really great step-by-step tutorial if you need more direction:

read the full tutorial here.

she also suggests adding an inspirational quote or word – what a great idea!

Thanks for featuring my tutorial!

I too reuse FP and Anthropologie catalogue for art projects. Also I am tickled pink with the butterflies. I am in the process of redecorating my daughters room and I have also used butterflies as part of the theme. In addition to the butterflies, birds and birdcages will also be used. I can't wait to share the end products with FP facebook someday when I finish. I could only do a little bit at a time. You cannot hurry art, it just has to evolve. Wow I think this is why everything I do takes so long to finish !

wild goose chase

Post image for wild goose chase

lately i’ve really been loving the work of scotland-based artist fiona watson, using feathers, flowers, and other found items…

these are from her series called “an unwritten book”

an-unwritten-book

an-unwritten-book4

an-unwritten-book2

an-unwritten-book3

“i used to be a scientist but have always been an artist.” – fiona watson

the feathers and wishbones are so awesome. check out more of her beautiful work on her flickr page or website.
