She Looks Sly

Illustration: Kelly Smith

Just bought myself this lovely piece from the very talented Kelly Smith of Birdy & Me.
Have been lurking for quite some time around her Etsy store and finally found the one that caught my eye. 
(I chose this paticular one because of the fox. My cat's name is Kitsuné, which means fox in Japanese.)
If you're not acquainted with her work, I suggest you go have a look immediately.

I'm Walking On Sunshine

Super sunny today.
What a wonderful way to start the week end.

Where The Wild Things Are

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak is a children's picture book originally written in 1963 and published by Harper & Row. The book is about the imaginary adventures of a young boy named Max, who is punished for making mischief by being sent to his room without supper. Max wears a distinctive wolf suit during his adventures and encounters various mythical creatures, the wild things. Although just ten sentences long, the book is generally regarded as a classic of American illustrated children's literature.
Spike Jonze is in charge of bringing this childhood classic to life.
The cast includes Catherine Keener, Max Records, James Gandolfini, Angus Sampson, Forest Whitaker, Lauren Ambrose, Catherine O'Hara and Paul Dano.

I loved this story as a child and cannot wait to see it through the eyes of the visionary director.

Out in France on the 14th of October 2009.

Tilt Shift - Keith Loutit

Keith Loutit is an Australian photographer.
He uses tilt-shift and stop motion technics... and is good at it !

"Tilt-shift" actually encompasses two different types of movements: rotation of the lens relative to the image plane, called tilt, and movement of the lens parallel to the image plane, called shift. Tilt is used to control the orientation of the plane of focus (PoF), and hence the part of an image that appears sharp; it makes use of the Scheimpflug principle. Shift is used to change the line of sight while avoiding the convergence of parallel lines, as when photographing tall buildings.

This tecnic combine with stop motion gives an extraordinary impression as you can see in this video...

Polaroid 100 Project

As a tribute to the beloved Polaroid, UK photographer Lina Scheynius has collected together 100 of her Polaroids for sale.
Each one comes signed and with a handwritten note of when and why the Polaroid was taken.

I think this is such a lovely idea.
A wonderful way to say we'll miss you old friend, beloved Polaroid.

Classic Coco

Coco Chanel

Dots and Lines

Cartographic conjecture, emergent systems and experimental musical notation all coalescent in the space planes of Emma McNally’s drawings.
The pieces, done with graphite on paper, are dense with interconnected and intersecting shapes - squares, circles and dots rhythmically layered to create dense three-dimensional spaces.
Maps and mappings also figure heavily – imagined paths, trajectories and psychogeographic boundaries of possible journeys are implied.

The perfect chaos.
The organized mess.

Here Comes The Sun

It's still sunny in Paris, and the even bigger surprise is that it's actually really warm outside!
Maybe after all my craving, wanting and whining, it finally worked, The xarm weather has decided to settle in.
Hope everyone has a lovely day.

Song of the day.
