Spring books from Gestalten

Gestalten is my favorite publisher and I love their books every Autumn and spring I'm awaiting for their new titles and this year is no different. I already fell in love with Doppelganger book and discover three more titles I really like. First is the Cutting Edges book about contemporary collage, showing unique examples of use of collage technique in today's art. Next Ruby, otherworldliness shows upcoming visual artists who are connected by the theme of otherworldliness. As I was always fascinated by working with paper the Papercraft 2 is something I can't wait to put my hands on. This book explore usage of paper in contemporary art from paper cutting to 3d installations.

Ceramics at Anthropologie

I'm really inspired by beautiful ceramics at Anthropologie, it's nice to see something that make your home more special and unique. Some of them are hand made which makes them even more special. I'm at the point where I consider to incorporate my drawing to ceramic objects and seeing those really make me want to do something about it the question is where to start.

Sunday morning

I love Sundays mornings when you don't have to go anywhere and can just drink your tea, relax and flick through books that just arrive yesterday. This year I've started with being ill but also I had some extra time to catch up with my drawing. So today I draw this one, very glamour version of a witch who is kidnapping naughty kids.
