I know this picture has already been making the rounds on lots of blogs lately, but it’s so cute I couldn’t resist posting it, just in case you hadn’t seen it! The photo is by David Sykes, who tells us about the photo on his site:
This latest piece of personal work is all shot in one shot on 5×4 transparency. I comissioned a model maker, Ridley West, to make a giant plate that we could attach to the wall, and with the help of Jennie Webster who sourced some amazing balloons, this shot was the result.
Those balloons really are amazing!

These sculptures totally amaze me! I wish I could touch one! They’re made of tussock grass, cordyline, and linen thread, by Australian artist Beth Hatton.

Brooklyn-based artist Steve Keene not only creates numerous paintings, but he also makes fabulous plywood sets and props! Recently he has collaborated with the Silver Jews, Pavement, The Apples in Stereo, Soul Coughing, Dave Matthews Band and Merzbow to create album art, video sets, stage sets and posters – so you can imagine our delight when he agreed to make the props for our latest site video! The video will be appearing on our main website on Monday, so make sure to tune in and watch for Steve’s props! Don’t miss it!

I’ve been getting lost in an awesome photostream of work by fashion photographer Tom Palumbo this afternoon. I love his compositions, and just the feel of his work in general! So inspiring!

I’ve been really into this blog Artist Quote of the Day. The quotes are typically from visual artists, and the entries feature images of their work and some brief brographical information. But today was Michael.

It’s Thursday Poll time everyone!
Last week we looked at our collection of denim shorts, and the favorite by quite a bit was the FP Studded Denim Cut Off Short with 138 votes! Today, it’s extremely hot here in Philly, which might be why I am looking at our new dresses – light and comfortable! Which one is best do you think?
First up is the Beaded Gallery Dress in black!

Next is Pattra’s Criss Cross Dress in sky blue!

Shown below is the Lost and Found Shirt Dress in black!

chair socks

Aren’t these little chair socks by Chris&Ruby funny? I can see how they’d be useful though, if you didn’t want to scuff up a nice floor or something. They look pretty cute!
