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 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.
For part of her ongoing series Methods & Apparati for Social Facilitation and Mood Elevation, Keetra Dean Dixon has created this anonymous hugging wall! It’s such a cool idea- I wish we had one here in Philly! Read and see more about it here.

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!
These amazing pieces are from the graduation collection of Irina Shaposhnikova, who apparently just finished attending the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. The collection was called Crystallographica, and all the geometrical shapes and lines drive me wild! I’m dying to know what the clothes are made of – and how hard is it to take a seat in those pants?! So cool!
