this breathtaking, large scale installation is the work of gerda steiner & jorg lenzlinger.  using discarded telephone and computer cable, coastal flotsam & jetsam, gold leaf and botantical refuse they created this amazing artwork with the help of school children, gardeners & art students in kanazawa, japan, where the exhibition took place.

{check in again soon to see the whimsy christmas card & tag range!}

bears! raccoons! vampires!

i am really enjoying the graphic work of richard perez on his wonderfully named website: skinny ships, his clever use of ‘dirty’ colours mingles so well with a quirky sense of humour very similar to my own.
