Be my Valentine, Bitch!

HELLOOOO!!!??? Are you still there. I haven’t died, just been super busy with the opening of my exhibit. It’s been crazy, but it’s up now and you’re welcome come by and have a look. Here’s two pieces and I’ll show you more just as soon as I find out how on earth to photograph them.

The phrase means “Thanks for all your shit bitch” and it was an ex-boyfriend’s last words to me. The exhibit isn’t about him, I’ve just always thought it was such a ridiculous phrase so when looking for something ugly to write in really cumbersome crafts it was right there. And it was just perfect for an anti-Valentine exhibit :-) You can find opening hours on the website of the gallery

The first piece is done in crochet and the second one is 34.000 threaded beads…that took a while! ;-)

Check out these cards by Brooklyn based Enormous Champion. I LOVE them! I think this is a really original way of using script the combination with a kind of 70’s texture embossy look just works wonders and I haven’t seen anything look like this before. WANT!

I’ve noticed Canadian Ray Fenwick’s work many times in magazines during travels in the States and he always manage to put a smile on my face. He’s done job for loads of cool mags like GOOD, New York Times and Real Simple and his work is always spot on, integrating illustration with a bit of handlettering and an original colour palette. Wicked!

Lennard Schuurmans is a Dutch illustrator that I’ve only recently come across. Looking through his website is a treat because he does lots of different stuff, simple shapes and colours but also really detailed cartoony drawings. A super skilled guy!

I came across this lovely project by Demian Conrad which is a photo-lithogram experiment. I love to see new ways of using old methods and I just generally love experiments. There’s also other really great work on the site.
