virginia sin's sugar cones.

December 30th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Ice cream is probably my favorite food. I could eat it every day if it weren’t for the damage it does to one’s waistline. Perhaps artist Virginia Sin has a similar love. She’s created “Sugar Cones” — a series of ceramic ice cream cones that look totally real. For $18/piece you can buy a bunch […]

But where to begin, so many choices! How about with Arne & Carlos? Arne Nerjodet and Carlos Zachrison have been running Arne & Carlos since […]

william wegman's short films.

December 17th, 2009 · 2 Comments

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xYxxcqbPeU] Last week, Ryan introduced me to William Wegman’s short films. At first I was skeptical, William Wegman? You mean the guy who photographs the dogs? Yes, exactly. Ryan first saw the films as a student at  Mass College of Art and Design, also Wegman’s alma mater, and his intial skepticism was later squashed by […]

madonna for dolce & gabbana: summer 2010.

December 16th, 2009 · Comments Off on madonna for dolce & gabbana: summer 2010.

Although I wasn’t a fan Madonna’s ads for Louis Vuitton, I’m loving these images shot by Steven Klein from her Summer 2010 campaign with Dolce & Gabbana (up now on their online magazine Swide). She’s channeling her inner Italian — a noticeable attitude, voluptuous bosom, and even a bit of that gritty 1980s Madonna that […]

tyson anthony roberts.

December 14th, 2009 · Comments Off on tyson anthony roberts.

We’d like you to meet Seattle-based artist Tyson Anthony Roberts. A graduate of UC Davis, Roberts paints abstract landscapes that employ lines and shapes to represent the ever changing environment, but it’s his spot-on palette that really attracts me to his work. He uses a lot of muted hues and sporadically injects vibrant, often unexpected […]

December 11th, 2009 · 3 Comments

“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” -Winston Churchill Michael. Richard.
