Todays morning was rainy and passed under the sign of Alois Riegl (as reading) and veggy- inspired drawing. Once sun showed its face, I ran towards all biz things... It is night at my place, but I`m still running around :D Hopefully you all have/had lovely saturated day...
I was trying our new silky tote today. And I must say, it was verrrry comfortable. I always have some extra-cargo with me (although I wear small purses, if not backpack), be it albums, books,sneakers/high heels or a bunch of teddy-bears :D I`ve been suffering whole last summer carrying all my stuff (especially blankets for idle hours in park )in random simple totes.
Now I decided to take an advantage in being an artist and finally have made my own tote.
These fictitious insect rather look like jewels, no disgust at all. I created them from zero to every infinite detail.
Double-faced tote features fro golden bugs at one side, and big golden one on another. Main color is dark green (but maybe I will add options like blue or whatever). Soon available at the site.
I know, its been a while since I last time updated it, but some of you, dear readers, quite enthusiastic in sending requests :) And I highly appreciate it, really.
All the prints A3, made on heavy aquarelle paper and have a look of originals... I was surprised by this fact. Maybe one lucky person will get original instead of 30$ print, if I will keep on being inadvertent?
So, I have limited amount of them, they will be signed and shipped in plastic tube.
Although springs celebrating Fools Day with a mixture of snow storm and warm rain all day long, I believe it is time for farewells to winter. This lady is not going to screen her heat underneath a fur coat ( even if it is a Fendi one) any more. So I am, I used to feel naively that wearing light coat would make spring come sooner :)
My todays work is inspired by Chanel show. I especially love those fur helmets, which definitely send us to Courreges` hats and also Louise Brooks` bob (one of my fave hair cut to depict). Funny to see that a person as I am -- wearing no hats and hating hair cut for myself -- confesses in such a soft spots... But it actually what our life is about -- we often love what we can`t get and, what is more important, doesn`t suit us :) I find it funny.
Ok, no more verbiage :) In the mean time, lucky Londoners heading to Fashion Illustration Gallery at Decoy evening for seeing Decoy featured originals and huge and inspiring exposition of works, including David Downton, Andy Warhol and others.
As for me, I should get rid of stress and hassel of todays by going for rumba and cha-cha in 10 min :D
Although most stories at my pics take place at dark night, where moon of my imagination brightens things by virescent light, today I feel it`s time to change decorations.Waiting for spring.
Here it is, another sad (mad?) looking lady wades across a blossoming garden. She is robed in look 40 from Chalayan Fall 2013. This garment incarnates spring nature for me: changeant textile looks like a plant coming out from сhapped earth... Or something new and promising -- as every spring -- underneath a rusty surface. Wish you a lovely weekend, sunny and merry:)
I know, we all owe Proust a lot for using the phrase so often, especially those of us from glossy publishing, who really makes this words trite, mentioning them as a metaphor every time a new sweet trend appearing at the horizon, be it flower printed textiles or bright cheeked look.
But, assuredly, my brain couldn`t find anything as poetic as these words for this time!Wearing Comme des Carcons rose jacket from 2013 Fall makes a girl look like a flower, whose shadow is pleasing and desirable...
Not too sugary though, being deconstructed and modern. I`m impressed :)
