I am loving these surreal and colorful designs by Richard Hogg. The centaurs totally rock my world, and the seals are so comical! There is a lot more cool art on his site, including, to my delight, a few desktop backgrounds and a (scandalous) screensaver! So right now I have an extra fun and very hirsute Richard Hogg desktop! :)
So, I wandered over to The Moldy Doily yesterday, and she had these incredible pieces up. Aren’t they just insane? I can’t even think what to say about them, other than that I just like them so much, and even though I bet a lot of you read The Moldy Doily anyway, (as you should,) I had to post these, just in case you didn’t see them! They are the creations of Irregular Expressions, a family operation out of Istanbul! Aside from their Etsy, they have a ton of pictures on Flickr, definitely worth checking out!
Doub and Lauren have fun as they pick models.
Indy + Erin = Love!
The latest lobby decor.
Jenna’s awesome birthday treats, yum!
Kara hard at work on something pretty and arty.
Bob says, “EAGLES.” (P.S. The bottle is empty- it’s an Eagles decoration!)
What the Image Team does with their down time.
Courtney enjoying some work that looks tedious. :)
Pruitt and I both did posts recently about different clothing label related art projects (here and here), and then I spotted this! These are custom designed Doc Martens by Fake London for the project Original Since1460.
Doc Martens asked designers across Great Britain and the world to customize boots. Some of them are completely wearable and awesome like the Chrome Hearts ones, and others are more artistic or fun, like the Barbie cars by Jason Kirk.

This video makes me want the beach! I loooove all of the vintage footage and beach dancing chicks. Also love the fashion elements, the heels worn in the ocean, the suspenders with the bikini. Plus the hand drawings, this video has it all.

Remember the little Electrabel ad I posted the other day? Well, above is the “making of” video that goes with it, and I rather think it’s even better than the ad itself! It was all done with lots and lots of candles, just incredible! This video has a more full version of the song too!
A note to those of you who have been wondering about the song’s artist and title: I have been searching too! I can’t seem to find it, but if I do, I’ll be sure to post it in the comments! I’m sure it’ll come out sometime!
The Free People Art of Giving Winter craft swap is coming to a close. Some of the swappers have posted photos of their beautiful handmade gifts in our flickr group. They look so amazing!
Thanks to everyone that participated. I hope you all had fun:)
Check out the flickr group to see all of the gifts, and leave these crafters some comments if you love what they made. There should be more photos posting all week, so check back too.
Who would be interested in a Valentines swap??
Lately I have been working on making a quilt, (I’ll be sure and post when it’s finished!) and so when I saw this pillow on Familyman5k’s photostream, it really caught my eye! It never would have occurred to me to collect and use labels to make a patchwork anything! Clever!
Here’s the blurb that Familyman5k wrote to go with the picture: My mother made this patchwork quilt pillow from labels I saved for years from old clothes, mostly from me, some from my kids. I really love how it turned out and wanted to share this as it’s such a creative and beautiful idea!
Remember to save those interesting labels from clothes before you throw them away. I feel that once people see something like this, many will want to save their labels and someday have one.
So true! I know I’ll be saving my labels now!
