I've been listening to Dylan and really appreciating his music. I didn't start really listening to him until a few years ago. I mostly learned about his music through covers of his songs, mainly by Bryan Ferry.

And then here's this intriguing movie about to come out with different actors playing Bob Dylan.

Ironically, the amazing Cate Blanchett looks most like Dylan.


Daily Inspiration Boards

I came across Snippet and Ink (via Design Mom ) yesterday....what a brilliant way to "do something creative everyday."

This has inspired me to do a board....and to take it one step further, wouldn't it be cool to do a music mix to go with the board, hmm....now for a theme.


Do Something Creative Everyday

That is my new goal.
I will do something creative every day.

I just adore this motto from Paper Source .

Antigirl : Bleed Deeply

I notice myself getting more into collage work lately...
This morning I came across the work of Tiphanie Brooke (via Love Made Visible) and had to check out her website.
In addition to her prints she has great handmade books for sale.
Her use of color is and composition is lovely.


Light Poet

Ingo Maurer, one of my favorite designers of light objects, is having an exhibition at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum entitled "Provoking Magic."

He approaches light and lighting objects in a completely unique way.
I just love the chandelier-like designs he did below.

L’Eclat Joyeux, 2005


Woven Imagery

I came across the lovely work of A Liason (via mocoloco) and liked it immediately. Created by daughter Katrin (photographer) and mother Anne (textile designer) team. Their pieces show "everyday life which we see but often overlook."

I just adore their skirts! The line also features accessories and home decor.

Paper Beauty

I am in awe of Richard Sweeney's paper sculptures. He truly explores and understands his medium. His primary methods include cutting, scoring and folding....that's IT! Beautiful...


I Heart COLOURlovers

I just discovered COLOURlovers, a fantastic site for finding, creating and sharing color palettes. A sort-of social networking site for color! Very innovative concept for artists, designers, etc...

Here are just a few of the recent top palettes. Yummy...

My favorite:
lucien's skin

Arabic Taste of Life

Palettes can be downloaded for various programs.


Polaroid Bliss

Ok, so Grant Hamilton has already been featured on sooo many other blogs...but I have to post a few of his pics too. They are gorgeous and inspiring!

Makes me want to go out and get an SX-70 immediately.

In regards to my last post....connecting music with visuals....what music do you hear when you see these pictures?


Cherry Coloured Funk

I often link music to pictures. Or think of great movie scenes (yet to be made) when I hear songs.

When I ran across these pretty photos yesterday, I immediately thought of old Cocteau Twins songs and 4AD artwork. Very lush and colorful.

Do check out olivelse . It is a beautiful blog with more delightful work...not just photos.


Jason Bruges Interactive

Gorgeous and intriguing work by Jason Bruges. Check out his portfolio and video clips to see the work in action.

Interactive wall at the Hotel Puerta America (deserves a separate post) in Spain. Lights react with people walking by.

LED's light up balls in the tubes as they fluctuate according to wind direction and speed.


Ooh Nya

This typeface first caught my eye a couple of years ago. Designed by Frank Rocholl , inspired by the Eames alu chair. Very different. Check out the 'g'. Lovin' it.


Posters and Music {Go Together}

I really like these posters by designer Scott Hansen. Very retro yet very fresh. Something about his work makes me think about Stanley Kubrick films. Maybe the colors? More of his work can be found on his blog.

Scott also creates great music, under the name Tycho, which sounds very ambient-space lounge-cool electronica. I really like "The Disconnect" (can find on his sites mp3 player).


Beautiful India

My internet was out yesterday, which wasn't necessarily a bad thing...
Just found out my husband may travel to India for work, which I'm very excited about. My trip to India through design school last year was phenomenal...an absolute visual feast and bombardment of the senses. One cannot explain the sites, smells, and sounds that are unique to this beautiful country. It was on this trip that I began to really "look" with my camera. I know I'll return sometime again.

Here are just a few.

Although in sore need of updating, more photos can be found here.
I also found a great blog, rang:the coulours of life, with more lovely India.


Fade to Grey

I'm ready for Fall! Living in a climate where it's over 100 degrees for a 100 days straight...I crave the crisp cool air of autumn and a little grey.

I'm noticing a lot of yummy greys in the Fall collections. At Marimekko, their fall line has some beautiful, sublime shades.

Grey is the new (blank).


TGIF Music

New Underworld song "Crocodile", from the forthcoming album Oblivion with Bells.

Bright Ideas

100% London Design opened this week. The UK's largest design exhibition features Tom Dixon as its Creative Director. His installation "Blow" in Trafalgar Square, with low energy lights powered from a renewable resource. The lights were given away to the public yesterday.

I adore innovative light design and London is one of my fave cities. I wish I was there to see this! The lights look soft and warm, which is unusual for low energy.

In one of my other lives, I'd be designing lights.
