Check out this headpiece by Philip Treacy (no pics at the link…sorry).

I would most likely injure myself I put this on (and would definitely injure others), but you have to admire the construction! Ah, like a gothic ship in the night…

Xeeming

Xeeming (a Ukranian artist whose real name is Dmitri) makes some fun horror art.

Here were have a not-so-pleasant surprise for the sanitation department, come time for trash pickup.

Gather round and let the fiddler play you a tune!

This one reminds me slightly of R.S. Connett (whose work I adore).

“What is Fashion?” Amazing 80’s Student Film.

Posted in 80's, fashion, film, humor, quotes with tags , , , , on July 30, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

This student film is totally radical…tubular…clutch. I forgot how many kids had braces back then…or should have had braces. See some Breakfast Club runner-ups discuss their ideas of what fashion is and what it means to them!

My favorite line: “Ska is from England. It’s kinda like Duran Duran, sort of. But they’re kinda like, mediocre to this. They’re not as intense.” *headdesk*

Kirk McGuire: Cephalopod Tables

Posted in furniture, home, sculpture, sea, wish list with tags , , , , on July 29, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Now THIS is how you hold up a pane of glass for a coffee table! Kirk McGuire has a series of bronze sculpture tables that add a dash of marine adornment to the home.

The octopus is definitely my favorite.

But the giant squid is pretty great, too.

And the leafy sea dragon is a bit more understated, which is nice if you don’t opt for the bold look of cephalopods.

Cardiac Wallpaper

Posted in anatomy, decoration, home with tags , , on July 28, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve never considered patterned wallpaper before (my environment tends to be a little “busy” with books and odd trinkets cluttering every free space, so it seemed a touch overstimulating to add designs to the mix). But I’m sold on this Cardiac Wallpaper.

I think this looks lovely. We’ve all heard the expression “If those walls could talk…” The hell with talking; I’d like my walls to rhythmically beat.

Hernan Faraci

Posted in art, surreal with tags , on July 27, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I love when artists find the SheWalksSoftly Facebook Page (please add and/or friend suggest it, if you haven’t!) and I get to discover new work I might not have otherwise seen. I’m loving some of these colorfully frenetic pieces by Hernan Faraci.

Some call to mind the art of Ralph Steadman…
