Tiny Paintings by Lorraine Loots

"How?" I ask myself.

These tiny drawings by Cape Town artist Lorraine Loots are super detailed and incredibly beautiful.

Lorraine started this project in 2013 and the objective was to make a tiny painting every single day of the year. She sold all of those paintings and started the project again this year. She's already sold out every day of this year too (though there are still postcards available, of which she makes 5 every day)! So if you are in love with her work, you can reserve a future painting or postcard here: http://lorraineloots.com/paintings/september

[Street Art Sundays] Leon Keer

This guy is AMAZING. Leon Keer is Dutch, but truly works internationally now. His specialty is in 3-D street work, which is just incredible.

[Street Art Sundays] Guache

Finally an artist from the "region" where I live! Guache is Colombian but has worked recently in Europe. I love his colorful animalistic/humanistic street art. They really make you stop and take them in.

[Street Art Sundays] eL Seed

I love lettering and typography, so calligraphy being a form of that, I immediately take notice. 

Arabic is such a unique beautifully written language. eL Seed (French-Tunisian) has created something called calligraffiti to describe his street art, which is a mix of calligraphic Arabic lettering with a geometric touch. 

To me, it's outstanding.

Beautiful Yarn Weaving by Jay Mohler

I've realized recently that I'm really drawn to geometrical designs. I like order, math, rhyme and reason.

Jay Mohler, from Asheville, North Carolina, makes beautiful Ojos de Dios (Eyes of God). These woven works are made with simple materials, but the results are very striking. Check out Jay's Etsy page if you are interested in purchasing!

[Tuesday Tattoos] Rodrigo Tas

Entrancing tattoos are the best way to describe Rodrigo Tas' work. Hailing from Sao Paulo, Brasil, this new master creatively uses negative space to make the design shine. I am in awe.

[Street Art Sunday] Irony & Boe

We all need more animals in our lives!

I just started reading Cesar's Way by Cesar Millan, so I've definitely got animals on the brain. :)

This is a fun collaboration between Whoam Irony and Placee Boe in London. It would definitely brighten my day to pass by it in person!

[Fashion Fridays] Stone Cold Fox Fall 2014

Stone Cold Fox is a Los Angeles indie clothing store (860 South Los Angeles Street Suite 525, shop online here). Their Fall 2014 Collection 'Ladies and Gentlemen' is stunning. No surprise there since I love lace designs. 

How sad that women have to cover up their chests while men can roam free. I love the freedom of these dresses and the 'daring' notion that you could go without a bra or coverup. Let's hope that society continues to open up to natural ways of expressing oneself.
