I saved the entire Te Nia portfolio, one image at a time, because I want to go over them more closely and enjoy the lush detail of the colorful, morbid wonders.
Forgotten Hearts: One of a Kind Fine Art Ball Jointed Dolls by AiiS Roman & Gamalier Bravo.
From the artist statement:
I thought faeries lived only in books until they appeared upon my life as vibrant luminous beings. This particular ones are those I call “Borrowers” Mischievous winged spirited water fairies. They love to raid houses when people are not around. They borrow shiny objects and don’t mean to be bad. Borrower fairies have bad memory and forget to give their findings back.
Last night I heard a noise that came from my mom’s antique trinket box.I finally saw them! I catch them playing with my dad’s old watch. I took a picture and they didn’t even noticed.
I’m out West, but my hometown is full of snow right now. Winter weather can be quite bothersome in the practical sense…but it is undoubtedly breathtaking.
No one shows the beautiful essence of winter like the gifted Vivienne Gucwa.
Her eye for capturing the perfect moment in time brings out the luscious, ethereal nature of the bustling urban landscape. She has the vision of an artist and the soul of a poet (often there are lovely musings written with her work).
Dazzling icy eye-food…
This video has been making the blog rounds lately, with good reason. Every now and then (as often as possible) it’s worth stopping to appreciate the awe striking nature of the world’s simplest things.
I’m a bit torn about fashion photography. I love the artistry involved in some shoots, but hate to support the rampant pressure to develop eating disorders in the industry.
Lucia Giacani has a series I can’t help but love. Matching makeup to anatomical models? Yes please!
Do you have a favorite fashion photographer?
I had to pause for a moment upon seeing Jasmine Becket-Griffith’s new painting because I had yet to see my (oddball) eye color and hair depicted in a piece of art.
I can never give an answer when asked for my eye color. The center near the pupil is brown, then it gets gold, then green/grey in some kind of bizarre starburst.
I love the innocence and sadness of this piece (and many of her pieces).
I happen to be an extremely feminine creature in all ways, but sometimes I take note of the fact that if I were a man I would undoubtedly have a collection of bizarre and interesting ties.
Tie Story makes me want to just start wearing this accessory myself with button down shirts (the one problem is that standard ties are WAY too big for my diminutive frame…maybe I can find skinny ones).
My other absolute favorite store in the tie market is Cyberoptix. Great stuff.
