Happy Monday

" Wake up and smell the coffee" is all I can say on a Monday morning. Keep Calm Ltd. has other prints you can choose from. And this is just one of them. I say, this is great to hang in the office. Well, what do you think?

Gingy & Rosie

I apologise for my lack of posts lately. I've been busy with my piling assignments which seems endless at this point. Lecturers seemed to be enjoying this game of torturing their students by spoiling our weekends with bulks of assignments. Blimey. Well I may not be able to get online to post as frequently as before (at least for this week and the next). But if you're lucky, I'll post something up occasionally. I assure you I'm not going to disappear forever. Whatever it is, let's get onto today's post. The pics above are one of my first few attempts at trying out my sister's DSLR camera. And these little creatures don't belong to me. They're a part of my sister's super furry animal collection she has stowed away in her room.

Freddie Robins has some impressive portfolio. She uses knitting to explore contemporary issues of the domestic, gender and the human condition. Her studio practice questions conformity and notions of normality, and intersects the categorisation of art and craft.

Nicole Miller's Spring 2008 Collection

I know that I would occassionally post some random runway collections now and then but what to do? I'm in love with designs. And when I say designs, I mean any kinds of designs. This time, I'm oogling over Nicole Miller's Spring 2008 Collection. Just got to know her from 'A Model Life (with Petra Nemcova)' show with one of the girls (if I'm not mistaken, Michelle) who donned in one of Miller's designs for last year's Fall collection. These are my favourites from her spring collection. Ones that look like they were inspired by Batik prints.

Birthday

Wow I can't believe it. It's my birthday (don't know how to react). Happy birthday to me then :) But I kind of don't like the fact that I'm getting older.

P/S:
A certain someone told me to change the picture of this post because the other looked gray and gloomy and made me sound like I wasn't really excited about my own birthday. This picture of a felt cake was taken by my sister(who was trying out her new DSLR camera) and I think it best describes this post.

Chinese New Year

It's Chinese New Year everyone! Yay! One thing I love about this country is that we get too much holidays. And now I'm on a two-days holiday myself, sitting back and enjoying life as the way it is.

Monkeeholic

I have no idea who Monkees are. But I'm fascinated by this picture of a Monkeeholic who meticulously arranged her collection of CDs, buttons and magazines revolving around the band just to have a shot like this. How absolutely wonderful :)

Little Plane

Sometimes, it pays off to look at serene little things like these. Although I don't really agree with the title of the picture which goes "{January 24} coffee shop and felt like the photographer needed to rename the picture with "Little Plane" instead because the focus is obviously on the little plane and not on the coffee shop, I still think it's a wonderful picture nonetheless.

Simply Silhouettes

I love these silhouetted images from Simple Silhouettes. They're a reminiscent of the nineteenth century Southern American posters. I think the designer of Jack Johnson's album cover used a similiar approach to create a silhouetted figure by the tree. The designer of Simple Silhouettes is Meg Stearns. A 32-year old, mother of two who experiments with graphic design and art to explore her creative side. She recreates digital silhouettes from photos as well as making some limited edition prints drawn from her own inspiration. You can find her artwork on etsy.com and go to her blog to find out more about her and her designs.

Furniture Good Enough to Eat

Last time, I posted on a table cloth with riddles. This time, I'm posting on a table cloth which could be eaten. Literally! The so-called furniture that's meant to be eaten are made by Netherlands-based design duo, Mario Minale and Kuniko Maeda. However, sad to say, that the exhibitions on their works which featured these edible furniture have already ended. But nonetheless, you can always check out what you missed by clicking onto www.minale-maeda.com

Saving Me from You

I love this graffiti from savetheyouth. The ray from the guy's eyes was supposed to be the death ray, I was told. But I couldn't figure out what's the significance of the red, yellow and grey raindrops. Perhaps the symbol of death itself.

Mad about Book Covers

30 gms and Drawn! are raving so hardly for these Pelican book covers. And so am I! Anything that has to do with books and covers, well I'm certainly up for it. I actually agree with Drawn! I love the quirky designs of Germano Facetti on the book covers above. They're so adorable, you won't realise they're serious books on politics and psychology.
