I apologize for not posting but, my spring/summer line has been held up with many print issues. I am having a challenging time translating glossy paint to fabric. Here are some of the best of the new line. It’s gonna be small, but good. Let me know what you think. They will be up on the website very soon.word press sunburstredbottlewordpresswaterscape-crop

I found these on Pinterest. Stuck in a creative Dead Zone. I created some distraction for myself.3e7cd602c314d49331035c7b08aade07

LA Art Book Fair Part. 2

Posted in Favorite Books with tags , , , , on February 5, 2015 by tminx

This is a sampling of Kristen Schiele’s work from her book Autop Rize. I was drawn to it immediately. She’s a cool printer from Brooklyn.
The more I look at it then more I like it. I hope you do too.

LA Art Book Fair Part. 1

Posted in Inspirations with tags , , , , on February 3, 2015 by tminx

The LA Art Book Fair was a blast. The energy was electric. I can’t put my finger on why, perhaps it was a great mix of high art books and small xeroxed zines. The demographic of the crowd was the same. A nice blend of well paid urban creative professionals and artists who are getting it done by any means necessary. It made for a real inspiring vibe. I had my son and a large stroller with me ( really bad move) so I didn’t get a chance to snap any great pics. Here’s a sample of one of the zine’s I picked-up. The following photos were taken by Louisa Behnke.laartbookfairblog

The Polaroids of Carlo Mollino

Posted in Favorite Books with tags , , on February 2, 2015 by tminx

This book is wonderful, eerie and sad at the same time. Carlo was a successful architect and designer. From 1960-73 he started bringingwomen, friends and women of the night back to his Villa in Turin where he meticulously dressed and staged them for these polaroid photo sessions. Thousands have been uncovered and have been put together in this book. Here are some of the more tame images.carlomollinocarlomollino2carlomollinoccarlomollinodcarlomollinofcarlo Mollinoa
