So how are you guys holding up after changing the clock for daylight saving? I’ve been bitching about it all day, but that’s probably because I love sleeping waay to much. On the positive side of things, it’s getting brighter outside! Seems like the winter spell is about to end.
Since the sun came out today and the temperature hit double digits (12C! woop!) I thought these paintings by Australian artist Julian Meagher would be puuurfect. They are so bright and full of life – basically an energy pill in the shape of a canvas.
I love how Julian takes random objects like gin bottles, beer boxes, and kitschy vintage pots and injects them with new life. Oh man, I cannot wait to feel like I’m living in one of his paintings, which should happen fairly soon! Yes! Hello Spring!
Oh you know, nothing much, just a bunch of super rad paintings by Linnea Strid. Such a nice way to get the week started!
And yes, I said paintings – PAINTINGS! Oh man, the things people create sometimes just blow my mind. I don’t have any experience in painting (other than stick dummies and pornographic napkin sketches), but I’m pretty sure – I heard it somewhere – that painting water is super hard, especially when you want it to look fluid. Obviously Linnea has no issue with that.
If you want to drool a bit more, check out her other paintings!
Oh Marcela Cardenas, we love this! The hues, the huuuess; blush, mint, violet, and several earthy tones in between – all this plus soft velvety fur and a few drawings on glass. BAM. A visual cocktail to get your weekend started.
I know fur is a bit of a touchy subject for many (I’m with you on that) so we won’t get into a debate of sorts (also, our brains are fried and it’s Friday and we all wanna go home), instead let’s appreciate the beauty and intricate work of this series.
See more of Marcela’s work over here. Once you’re done, you’re free to close your computer and go for a drink :P
Happy weekend señores!

Molly Hatch knocked it out of the park with this crazy series of hand painted chairs designed for Anthropologie and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, basically the 2 most amazing places on earth, one for shopping, one for gawking at amazing art.
All of these pieces were painted in her studio and are one of a kind. No cray cray mass produces stuff in here fellas, we are talking serious skills in here. Molly used historic prints as inspiration for her paintings, which in addition to the sleek modern design of the chair, create the perfect combo.
Who wants one of these babies?
JEBUZZZZ. I think it’s only fair if we all freak out a little bit about these mixed media pieces by Jesse Draxler, no?
This series was produced by Jesse as a lookbook for New York based high-end retailer OAK NYC, and boy did he nail it! I swear, just by looking at these images I want to buy every single article of clothing, which will probably cost a million dollars, but hey, one can dream, right?
If you do have a million dollars just laying around and want to go shopping to OAK, can you take me with you?! I’ll carry your bags!
