A big thanks to Kenneth Srivijittakar, frame guru, printmaker extraordinaire and dinosaur balancer for helping us make frames!  We would be lost without this fella!  More thank you posts to come… there have been a few people without which this show would not be happening…

I just came across this in my photos and it made me laugh.  Hail Satan embroidery!  It doesn’t get much better than this folks.

I miss anatomical illustrations that are works of art aside from being informative diagrams of the human body etc.  Gray’s anatomy was and still is one of my favorite sources for drawing inspiration.  I say let’s bring back high quality etchings and drawings and forget this whole photoshop nonsense.

From the Bauhaus, early 20th century Germany, I am so fond of her textile designs.  Bursting with color and intricate patterns, she pulls it all together without being overwhelming.

Gotta love Vargas…

Such a rad idea.  I have always wanted to take a space originally intended for one specific thing and make it into a living space.  This is an example of  an amazing conversion.  Unlike most living spaces, this place is huge, but not so industrial that it necessitates a complete face-lift like some warehouse conversions.  There are more pictures of this place at THIS website, which I recommend checking out!
