I was totally caught by surprise when I saw these prints are a merge of staged photos of real plexiglass and digital illustrations. Crazy! Basically the shapes, colours, and reflexions from the lights in Verena Michelitsch and Tobias Van Schneider’s studio serve as a base pattern from which they create unique prints.

I love that the materials used in this series were actually bought at the shops in New York’s Chinatown. See, there’s no limit for creativity! You ain’t need expensive shiz to produce amazing work. See the behind the scenes over here AND buy the prints over there.

Patricia Treib creates paintings that remind me of sweet summer sorbets, right? The colours and lightness of the paintings definitely set the mood for a cheerful hot season.

Here in Vancouver the weather has been kinda all over the place, one day it feels like the best summer ever, then the next it’s cold as hell, and on the next one it rains. All these dramatic weather fluctuations come with a pretty prize – the sight of flower petals being carried down the street by little streams of water. In fact, those mushy colourful petals on the sidewalk remind me of beautiful paintings like these.

Check out Patricia’s latest work and exhibition in NYC over here.

What’s the best way to end the week? With radical textile design? Why yes! And thanks to Suprême Bon Ton we can all have a joyful Friday full of pretty silk scarves.

Suprême Bon Ton is a French design studio that specializes in precious (and I say precious ’cause these things are like gems!) silk scarves with unique patterns. Each scarf is delivered in a – quote – lovely box. I mean, they are already lovely enough, so anything else on top of that is icing on the cake.

Oh man, these paintings are screaming SUMMER at the top of their lungs! They make you want to run out of the office and go to dip at the nearest pool, right? The water details are crazy! Those light patterns created by pool water are a sign of happiness, I swear.

Josep Moncada is the summery artist that created this beautiful paintings, he lives and works in the Balearic Islands in Spain, which explains why his work is drenched in heat and rad action. This talented fella was actually an accountant by trade, and it wasn’t until he was around 27 years old that (and while also taking art courses on the side) to become a full-time artist. See, it’s never too late to pick up a brand new – amazing – career.
