What is tattoo Tuesday about?

October 31, 2017

Artist Pony Reinhardt of Portland-based Tenderfoot Studio produces wildly creative tattoos which she describes as a “cosmic cataclysm of the Ghastly Phantastic.” Images of the natural world mingle with stars and elements of sacred geometry in a style reminiscent of old etchings and woodblock prints. Reinhardt has also exhibited fine art at the Smithsonian National Gallery of Art and is a US Presidential Scholar of the Arts.

Why am I hungry?

October 18, 2017

Japanese artist Yukiko Morita always loved bread. Not only was it delicious but there was something about that special combination of flour and yeast that produced wonderful flavors, beautiful tones, and adorable shapes that make people feel warm inside. This profound passion for pan (Japanese for bread and was borrowed from Portuguese) eventually led Morita down a unique path that combined lighting design and baking.

We originally discovered the artist at Tokyo Design Week back in 2014. Since then, Morita has made significant progress in making her one-of-a-kind lamps more accessible. She set up an online shop where she sells battery and wall-socket lamps. She’s developed some wonderful packaging design for them, and she even ships overseas. She also appeared at the trade show Maison & Objet in Paris over the weekend.

You can read more about Morita and her pan passion project here but yes, each lamp is made from actual bread and is preserved in a coating of resin.

What am I drawing?

September 21, 2017

Edward Hopper, age 9

Pablo Picasso, age 8

Georgia O’Keefe, age 14

Albrecht Durer, age 13 (self-portrait)

Michelangelo, age 12 or 13

Some artists are late bloomers, but with others talent is obvious from an early age.  An article by Abigail Cain on Artsy looks at the early works of famous artists and shares her discoveries here.

My favorite is that Hopper sketch of a little boy, drawn on the back of his third grade report card.

Where am I playing?

September 18, 2017

For the last several years, Danish design firm MONSTRUM has constructed wildly imaginative playscape features for playgrounds around the world with an intense focus on both artistic and architectural quality. The playgrounds are designed and built locally in their large studio just outside Copenhagen and then shipped in components to sites around Denmark, Sweden, Russia, and even Dubai. The design studio has a strong background in theatrical set design which lends itself to their thematic playscapes, one of our recent favorites being the “Justin Beiver” playround in Partille, Sweden. Collected here is a sampling of designs from the last few years, but you can see more on their website.
