As the rain is pouring down, my neck is hurting from all the time I’ve spent in front of my computer and I’m stressing about cooking dinner (if I keep eating frozen food I’ll turn into a mexican Paula Dean) – I found my saviour: the art of Peggy Wolf.

Peggy has been all over the place – interior design, fashion, illustration. No wonder why her work is fit for a runway show. It would be awesome if Peggy paired up with a fashion designer of sorts to create an art/clothing show where you can match your shirt with a canvas (like Basso and Brooke but more collage-y).

On a side note, not everything has been stress today – I got a thank you email from Amanda (the artist that created the rad 40K Junk Mail installation posted below) I couldn’t be more flattered! Amanda mentioned she has a few projects happening in the near future and when the time comes she’ll let me know about them. Can hardly wait! ALSO her post made my blog appear in WordPress’ front page in the “Freshly Pressed” section making The Artful Desperado go kabooom! Thank YOU Amanda and thank YOU newly-discovered-desperados for leaving all of those great comments :)

So, back to Peggy’s art – inspired by all of her colourful pieces I say get your sketch book out, your fashion magazines, scissors and glue and let your artful juices flow!

While you get your supplies  – and I attempt to grow more arms like Vishnu so I can get stuff done around the house – I’ll leave you with some good looking couture-inspired art:
