To achieve that hazy layered look, Brooks Salzwedel uses multiple layers of graphite, tape and resin in his work. I like how the pieces seem so still, yet they are kind of unsettling. Check out more of his work here.

As I’m sure many of you know, there was a solar eclipse today, which was visible to a lot of Asia. The always spectacular Big Picture photo blog by Boston.com has a wonderful post of images from the eclipse. The images above are from that post – aren’t they great?! The eclipse itself is so amazing, but I think my favorite pictures are the ones of people looking at the eclipse. Check out the post here – it’s worth it!

We are obsessing over this editorial from H&M Magazine! The pictures, shot by Camilla Åkrans, are so light and airy and warm! Perfect for summer. Also, you might recognize the model, Anne V, from our April catalog. See the rest of this inspiring set at Fashion Gone Rogue!

daily affirmations

Who can’t use a little positive encouragement each day? A group of five blogs, Kind Over Matter, Magpie Girl, Joy Rebel, Jamie Ridler, and Mirkwood Designs, got together and created this little set of daily affirmations with a cute box to keep them in! The idea is that you read one each day for a little inspiration! Best of all, they have put the pattern for the box and all the affirmation circles on the web so that we can make our own set! Click here to be taken to where you can download the patterns!

How wonderful to see this kindness project spread! Thank you so much for sharing the affirmations and the inspiration. It's a joy to be featured on your site!

This charming work is by Brooklyn-based illustrator Aleks Sennwald. I stumbled upon her work on Share Some Candy, and now I can’t get enough! I love the way she draws animals- though the woman in the picture at the top is really engaging too! Aside from her website, Aleks also has a blog which showcases her work, and other things.

If you’re looking for something to do in New York City tonight, check out the The Phenomenal Handclap Band at Joe’s Pub! They’re the first band I’ve been tempted to call “funky” or “groovy” in a long time! They’ve got a fun mellow sound with dance-y beats!

lids transform your can

I love this set of lids! Jack Bresnahan showed these lids at the New Designers graduate show in London recently. There are nine lids in total, and they are made of bio-degradable plastic! I really love that the lids can help you take something that is thrown out all the time and make it into something very useful!

You might remember when I mentioned that there was a really cool event this past weekend in Space 1520 by our Hollywood We The Free store. Lauren Dukoff had a special opening party for her new book Family, and Devendra Banhart played a special set! I missed it, being on the opposite coast, but our Store Manager Carla sent me some wonderful photos taken during the event by Sonny Gerasimowicz.

This is a signed copy of Lauren’s book! It features portraits of many amazing folk and indie musicians, including Devendra, naturally!

Here everyone is waiting around for the show to start!

Devendra is getting ready to go on… He sure is a cutie!

Devendra is about to go up and everyone is getting psyched! Also, on the left you can almost see the front of the We The Free store – there’s a guy peeking inside! Hope he likes what he sees!
image001upstage.jpg
The show begins!
image004frontrow.jpg
Everyone loves it!

Our Managers-in-Training, Antonella and Laura, are huge Devendra fans, and they watched the show from the store garage. They look so pretty!
Thank you for the fabulous pictures Carla!

These fun creations are giving me a little inspiration this morning! They’re by Australian illustrator Kareena Zerefos. The girl at the top is just so beautiful – but I think my favorite might be the owl, because of his wonderful colors!

I am amazed at the detail of Amanda Michelle Smith‘s ceramic work. The way she draws is also really appealing! Check out this post on If The Birds Knew and click the pictures to see much bigger photos, and more of Amanda’s work! Seriously, do it! The bigger pictures do more justice to the work – the little intricacies are really great!

luminous & hazy

Part of what makes these paintings so dreamy and luminous is that they are painted on convex metal rounds. I love the subjects of the paintings, the natural patterns and plants, and I love the colors too! Yvette Molina uses layers and layers of oil paint and many transparent glazes to achieve that certain glow. Check out her site if you want to learn more about her!
