Ah! I love finding treasures like this on YouTube! Here’s some footage of The Jimi Hendrix Experience playing Hey Joe and Sunshine of Your Love on the old British television show It’s Lulu. It’s pretty clear for being old and on YouTube, and it’s absolutely mesmerizing. Enjoy!

I love the way Mario Sughi uses bright colors in his fashion illustrations! I really enjoy his drawing style too, the lines seem to fall really casually, yet they are clearly thought out. Check out his site for more vibrant illustrations!

a room – a loom

Luren of our visual display team is part of a really cool and special exhibition going on at Copy Gallery right now! It’s called A Room – A Loom, and you are all invited to come take part!

Some words from Luren:
The gallery has been converted into a giant loom. It stretches from one wall to the other and spans corner-to-corner. There is no space for you to move without becoming part of this huge apparatus!
The loom itself is really simple, and anyone can be taught to to use it in about 5 minutes.
You are invited to gather together the material of your choice and to contribute to the weaving of this collaborative textile.
A Room-A Loom began as a site-specific weaving experiment by Julia Sherman at workspace, a small project space in East L.A. Materials used thus far in the L.A. loom have included weeds, old clothing, Halloween costumes, computer cables, bubble wrap, plastic bags, John Baldessari’s toilet paper, Sheep Dog fur, raw wool, yarn, pants, jeans, blankets, burlap sacks, palm fronds, pom-poms and more. In mid-June workspace will host an reception to exhibit their final piece.
Copy is the first of several project spaces spanning the country and beyond to undertake A Room – A Loom. Eventually, there will be a group exhibition with all of the weavings from the various participating spaces.
Check out this link for a Google calendar with times that you can come and weave!

Luren and other members of Copy Gallery will also be available at other times – contact info@copygallery.org to make an appointment!

You may remember a bit more than a week ago when these shorts appeared in one of the Office Style posts. They are vintage by Steel Jeans, and quite of a few of you asked about them – I really liked them too! As you can see above, Courtney, the owner of the shorts, lent them to me for a day so that I could look them over and prepare to make my own pair! I did, and it was super easy! Here’s how I did it!
First I color-copied Courtney’s shorts, so that I could have a real-sized pattern of the patches on the front. It also really helped to have a guide for placement! I have posted the pictures I used on Flickr so you can use them too! Click on the picture, then original size to get the whole huge picture! Print them out and you have the patterns too!
Next I went home and picked out a pair of shorts I wanted to alter, and some pretty fabric for the patches!

You might notice that my fabric is very wrinkly! I highly recommend ironing any fabric you use for this project, but I don’t have an iron, so as for me, I just had to wing it! I folded the fabric I chose for the patches in half, and then drew an outline of one of the patterns on it. You could also use each pattern and draw each side separately.
My shorts are quite a bit bigger than Courtney’s, so I drew my outline out a bit from the outline of the pattern to compensate.

Then I cut the patches out, and pinned them to the shorts! I used the color copy of Courtney’s shorts as a guide.

Next, I sewed them down! I used a sewing machine for this part, but I think it would also be very easy to sew this by hand. With the sewing machine I had to be very careful not to sew down the pockets of my shorts!
Halfway finished!

Ta Da! Finished!

They turned out pretty good, right? I love them!
If any of you make shorts too, send us a picture of you wearing them at blog.freepeople@gmail.com! I would love to see how yours turn out!

These geometric mixed media pieces by Jeff Perrone are really interesting. He uses all kinds of things to create them – mud cloth, buttons, sand, wood, etc… I really like the buttons especially. See more here!

water bike

How cool is this amphibious bicycle created by Li Jin? She attached old water jugs to serve as pontoons and added what are essentially paddles to the back wheel! You can see her riding it on the water in Hubei Province in China above. Reportedly the bike is still usable on land too, without further modification. I want to try it!

These beautiful illustrations were all created in the early 20th century, and all the artists are Australian. I love them! I wish I could just dive right into one of them! BibliOdyssey made a fabulous post featuring these and many more gorgeous illustrations – very interesting and inspiring! Check it out if you feel like taking a little trip to fantasy-land!
