Some things don’t need to make sense for you to enjoy them. That’s what I’m finding out as I look through the drawings of Hatice Çiçek, a doodler from Istanbul. It’s a wild world of illustrated madness. Her drawings are rough and meandering, often leaving no space wasted on the page. The cartoonish style looks elementary at a glance, but that’s a deceptive simplicity. The warped, trippy composition of Çiçek’s sketches creatively weaves together a crazy amount of lines and patterns when you really look at it!See More »
We just got lost in a wonderful hour of cutting, rubbing, rolling, and pulling. How we love the tactile and tangible goodness of a hands-on project: the materials, the planning, the process. What fun to focus on something beautiful and immediate. Instant gratification.
The Trip by Michelle Lasalvia is stunning. The web honestly does it no justice. It has been an instant conversation piece at DA’s studio. The colors are vibrant and the quality of the vinyl and packaging exceeded all expectations. You will be enamored, but you’ll also be out of luck if you wait too long. Stock is limited, very limited (click to buy).
Post this beautiful decal on your wall like a ribbon around your finger—a reminder to travel, an inspiration to get out there.
This past weekend, I took a quick road trip from Miami to Birmingham and back. On our stop in Atlanta, I went into a record store and purchased the magazine Blü (No. 8) to keep me occupied in the car when I wasn't sleeping. In it, there's an interview with Pepa Prieto alongside some of her work. My favorite part of the interview is when they ask her if she has a favorite place to work - home, studio, other? Her answer: "…I travel a lot; so wherever I go I take my pens, paintings, laptop and camera. It's part of me and probably my favorite studio is where I am in that moment."See more » See More »
