I’ve recently been fascinated with the work of French streetartist Eltono. I’m not usually a big fan of geometry but it just works so well on these large scale buildings and in the middle of busy cityscapes. Wish we had one in Copenhagen. He should do my old workplace (Danish School of Media and Journalism) which I lovingly call The Concrete Castle, would be a perfect location!

Monday morning and the first morning of my new life as an independent designer (possibly soon to be independently poor). I could be Instagramming my coffee, but instead I will share a bit of what I’m doing with you. I’m researching an article and a talk I’m doing called “Take Shit Personally” and one of the projects I’m writing/talking about is Mr. Bingo’s book Hate Mail. I bought it a while back in London and I freaking LOVE it! I pull it out every time I’m a little cranky and it always makes me laugh. And hey, it’s Monday morning! ;-)

Feeling hateful too? Go ahead! http://www.mr-bingo.org.uk

Bless me Blogosphere for I have sinned. It’s been 1 year 1 week and 6 days since my last post. You will have gone elsewhere for your daily kick of inspiration by now, and this blog might be a digital desert. But I shall try to resuscitate it and lure you back nevertheless. I’m gonna use the cheapest trick in the book for that: naked ladies! But not just any naked ladies (this is a respectable blog you know!) the naked ladies of the amazing American artist Mel Ramos. I just love the way he comments on commercial culture, consumerism, branding and the fact that sex sells in his work. Or maybe he’s just a dirty old man? Either way I’m a BIG fan :-)

Look at the these wonderful illustrations by Nick Lu. He also does wonderful lettering but I’m so in love with his illustrations. Some of them are rough naive shapes with lots of texture and others are very detailed with loads of colour. I am loving the versatility!

Chances are if you’ve been in an H&M sometime in the last couple of years you’ve seen the work by illustrator Lovisa Burfitt but maybe you didn’t know who she was so I want to pay her proper credit cause I LOVE her work. The illustrations are so rough around the edges but still super beautiful and feminine. I love that contrast! The difference in strokes and textures make these work so well.

I am WAYYYYY behind on posting. But still here! Just working super hard. But hey! It’s time for the weekend and what’s more party friday than confetti? Ohh how I’d wish this place was in Copenhagen. I think I might have to book an extra seat coming back from NYC when I go in September for one of those pinatas.

The paintings by Sam Weber kinda creep me out but I’m also totally in awe. His technique for creating these freezing cold pieces is just astounding!
