Carefully Crafted Imagery

Odd beauty dipped in colour. Gentle melancholy adorned with sweet fears. A pleasant response to an eerie matter. Robert G. Bartholot is a Berlin-based freelance designer with an emphasis on photographic illustration and art direction. Beside his interest in dollish characters he certainly has a weakness for dusty shine, trendless fashion and striking gloom. Via Basic Sounds.

Crazy Cloakroom

Studio Wieki Somers designed the wardrobe at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam as a merry-go-round. In the museum the coats float under the ceiling, fill the empty space and hang safely high and other properties like bags etc. are being displayed in transparent lockers as museum pieces. The cloakroom is constantly changing its shape and color depending on the visitors of the museum.

Prickly Pencils

Jennifer Maestre uses pencils, but not the way most of us do, or even the ways most artists do. These imaginative creatures use pencils to showcase the contrast between lifelike forms and industrially produced materials. They were inspired by the texture of the sea urchin, which she has been exploring in many materials for several years. Via Beautiful Decay.

Brothers and Sisters

Excellent photos by Dutch photographer Ruud van Empel – a photographer who's work often seems magical at first sight. He shoots many images and combines them in a computer. He often uses nature and children as his subjects, creating vibrant images that have a outer-worldly feel to them.

Working with Fiber

We absolutely love the fascinating textile work by the internationally recognized artist Sheila Hicks. She was born in Hastings, Nebraska and received her BFA and MFA degrees from Yale University. Upon completing her studies at Yale Hicks received a Fulbright scholarship in 1957 to paint in Chile. While in South America she developed her interest in working with fibers. After founding workshops in Mexico, Chile, and South Africa, and working in Morocco and India, she now divides her time between her Paris studio and New York.
