2 Nov

Great idea for and execution of perpetual calendar. Reminds me to slow down and look at the everyday number and letter. I’m inspired!

Doll Hospital Photos

16 Aug

Heads in glasses, piles of arms, cracked faces. There is little in life more creepy and bizarre and cool than piles of old doll parts. This series of photos taken in a doll hospital, Docteur Poupée, on the stock photo site tofz.org, has it all. The site is peppered with whimsical and artistic photos from European and US locales. A great resource of off the beaten path images. Have fun exploring.

Lillian Bassman’s artistic life

19 Jul

Lillian Bassman lives a creative and artistic life on her own terms. Not chasing trends, or working for posterity. Does anyone live a life like this anymore? An inspiring story of a creative life well-lived.

Tiny plastic people: great big world

6 Jul

Scale is a challenging element to work with in design. Photographer Vincent Bousserez uses scale to put his tiny people in big world situations with charming results. The tension and intensity of their actions is enhanced with very close-up photography. We like watching these people deal with their worlds.

Work like this reminds me to readjust the lens I use to see the world, and revel in a willing suspension of belief.
