    Over at The Ghostly Store, you’ll find an array of manly tech gear to vinyls to Andy Gilmore. His prints are kaleidoscopic masterpieces in which the shapes grow infinitely smaller and smaller over a bed of soft and saturated hues; all creating an atmosphere that parallels astronomical forces in the grandest scale.

    Influenced by the wild and colorful culture of Miami, Jen Stark builds unimaginable, gravity-defying sculptures out of layers and layers of hand-cut paper.  Jen began working with paper when she studied abroad in France.

  3. Chris Benz :: Resort 2013

    July 25, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Chris Benz‘s resort collection reflects 90’s culture at its best.  Think vacationing in the sun with your cool older sister; her hair pulled up in a sloppy, sexy up-do, smacking on her bubblegum and bouncing her hips in boredom.  This collection combines sexy 50’s silhouettes with spunky, youthful colors and patterns layering knits, sheers, laces and silks to create a comfy yet flirty look.

  6. Artist: Jennifer Davis

    Jennifer Davis paints a world full of playfulness with her bold use of color and patterns.  Yet something is a bit eerie about her creatures and characters.  Although not strange enough to detour me, I’m saving my pennies up for Scaredy Cat (image above).  Check out her store at Etsy where she sells original paintings and limited edition prints. 

     


  7. My Hand…The Songlines

    July 17, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    In the second and final year at North Bennet Street School all students are given the same book in sheets (known as a set book) to complete as a fine binding.  Given complete freedom over the materials and design, the inspiration should be derived from the set book.  This year we bound copies of The Songlines by Bruce Chatwin.

    My main inspiration came from an Aboriginal painting depicting imagery referred to as Dreaming.  At the moment a mother is conscience of conception, the unborn child receives the spirit of a totemic ancestor connected with the location when awareness occurred.  In a general sense, the Dreaming relates to a period before the memory of living creatures, during the time of the creator ancestors and supernatural beings.  The paintings themselves are visual representations of the artist’s individual spiritual beliefs.
