Emma the Illustrator

Many Illustrators start out doing freelance work, as I know many designers and artists do as well, and Emma Lofstrom is a true inspiration. Her work has been featured in such magazines as Wallpaper*, Dazed, in countless exhibitions throughout London and her home of Sweden and recently a collaboration in illustrating cookbooks. Just found her work to be so detailed and colorful, so whimsical and fanciful.

Native Australiana

In Australia there is an incredibly rich and beautiful culture of its original inhabitants. Over the past few years I have been fortunate to learn more about the Aboriginal culture and although there are some very sad aspects there are also some strong and powerful ones as well.

I have paired Samantha Harris, a gorgeous Australian model of Aboriginal nationality, with some work found on The Artery, a gallery in Sydney that is "devoted to showcasing Sydney’s most unique and exciting contemporary Aboriginal art." I am saving up for one of the pieces and am sorry I have waited so long to share this art with you.

Just Kids

Patti Smith arrived in New York City July 3, 1967. Homeless yet hopeful, waiting and searching for her blue star.

New York is the thing that seduced me, New York is the thing that formed me, New York is the thing that deformed me, New York is the thing that perverted me, New York is the thing that converted me. New York is the thing I love. - PS 1971

It was the summer she met Robert Mapplethorpe, the love of her life.
