in the waves

These beautiful images of waves are by Japanese photographer Syoin Kajii. Syoin is a Buddhist monk residing at a seaside temple on Sado Island, where he works on his photography as well. His photos from this gorgeous set were recently featured in Foam Photography Magazine. I would love to get lost in any of them!

I love these! It feels like you're right in the midst of the waves.

I love the simplicity of these coffee-themed illustrations by Jenny Kim! On her site she has a couple photos that show how the pieces would look as a wall mural or on a coffee cup, and they’re awesome! Her paintings are very good as well; check them out on her site.

I don’t know if any of you like music by M83, but you should! They have a really cool electronic and sort of ambient sound.
If you are in New York City tonight and looking for something cool to do, M83 is going to be playing at the World Financial Center Plaza at 7pm, and the word is that it’s free! Awesome!
For now, check out the amazing music video for M83′s song We Own The Sky. I’ve been grooving on it all morning…

denim floor mat

I love the look of this floor mat, and to my delight, Instructables has easy directions for making your own – out of the old seams and waistbands from jeans! What a smart idea!

Courtney -Jul 31, 2009, 2:29PM
This is pretty neat. I think I'd probably use some sort of beaded or other fringe on the edges though. Neat idea.

These whimsical photos are all from August Bradley‘s series for the Hasselblad Masters Book. I love the colors, the props, and the clothes especially! Fishnet tights over solid tights anyone?

love in july

This music video, for Sally Shapiro‘s song Love in July, is so so cute! It’s a little love story, and the animation style is really fun and unusual! Enjoy!

I love these cool “solaroids” by Jeff McLane. Have you ever taken pictures of the sun? I think it’s hard to get it to look just right!

I’m really enjoying the way the lines are placed in these cool drawings by Lis Timpone. The tiny details are really impressive too! I don’t think I’d have the patience to line them all so carefully! See more on her blog.

These remind me of tribal art from a region in India named Gond.

I love this cool idea from Merel Karhof! They have built a machine that uses the power of the wind to knit a long scarf along the side of their building. Periodically they take down the long knitting and separate it into scarves, each with a label that tells how long it took to knit and when! Very awesome.

What do you guys think of these creations from Jean-Paul Gaultier‘s recent show in Paris? They’re so dramatic! I can’t get over those unusual materials used to make the overalls! Not to mention the headpieces! I could never wear any of it, but the pieces sure do make for interesting visuals! See many more looks from the show over on Jezebel.

Hope the fur is not real ... killing animals for fashion is unacceptable!!!
