Oh my goodness, this is the most beautiful bike. By Ateliers d’Embellie, it’s all built & detailed by hand and it’s a true work of art. I don’t even want to know what such craftsmanship costs. But DUDES, there’s a flask holder under the seat. And with that sexy little rack up front, this ride is as practical as well. A girl can dream… Via Hollister Hovey.
New find & friend Michael Pajon had some impressive up in Chad’s Get It Together show this weekend (the show was fantastic, but that’s a whole other post). Mike’s collages are incredibly intricate, all cut by hand from vintage ephemera. He’s also got some great etchings & intaglio prints that are really nice too.
My friend Davey just did a great post on vintage color palettes inspired by Fortune magazine covers over at COLOURlovers. I really couldn’t resist passing them on! I wanted to post them all, but that would be ridiculous so instead you should go here to see all the rest.
Guys I’m so excited! My friendly friend Will Bryant has asked me to guest blog for smokin’ hot Austin collective, Public School. Joining me is the super talented Gavin Potenza who also blogs for The Strange Attractor. Also, I feel compelled to point how devious I look in this photo. I’m so totally going to give Gavin a wet willy and THEN I’m takin’ his lunch money. Margot takes no prisoners on the playground.
Anyway, come visit us at Public School!
It’s party time again, friends! Chad Kouri’s curated an awesome show called Get it Together and it opens tomorrow! In his words it’s “a three dimensional freak out of color, form and material.” Various 3D collages/assemblages/installations will be on display as well as an area for people to sit down and make collages themselves. After the opening and subsequent hangover, come back on July 25th for more art-making plus BBQ.
Participants: Chris Roberson, Emily Clayton, Dr. James Harry Ewert Jr, Rod Hunting, Adrianne Goodrich, Peter Skvara, Michael Pajon, Ryan Duggan, Chad Kouri, Matt Nicolas, Jim Kozar, Ed Marszewski, Ben Speckmann, Sarah Jeziorski, Richard Smith and more. Audio collage performances by Le Deuce and Rik Shaw.
