Back to the Future Exhibition at Wolves Cafe19. August 2014
This Friday a new group exhibition is starting at Wolves at 6pm. It includes a bunch of talented young individuals and is being headed up by Miss Amber Smith who did a successful solo exhibition at Wolves a while back.
Come on in on Friday and come a look-see, I’m sure there will be something that takes your fancy… below is a sneak peak of a couple of the works going up.
Here are the artists taking place:
Gerhard Van Wyk
Nina Torr15. August 2014
Today I thought I would share some of Nina Torr’s work with you. She is a local South African artist that is one of my most favourite illustrators around. She has exhibited at Wolves a couple of times, as well as at a quite a number of other gallaries. She has a solo show coming up really soon and I’m going to make sure I’m first in line for it! I’ll let you know when it comes around, but for now enjoy some Nina magic.
- Nina Torr (AKA Andy Wyeth) is a Pretoria based illustrator/artist. She earned a BFA in Fine Arts from Parsons the New School for Design in NY in 2010 and is currently teaching illustration at The Open Window in Pretoria.
Lucky Song Friday – Future Islands – Cotton Flower15. August 2014
I would literally go to war for this song, whatever the hell that means. Future Islands is one of my all time most favourite bands and Cotton Flower is one of my all time most favourite songs. Happy listening.
You must watch a video of them live, the lead singer is the raddest dancer, so unexpected. My dream would be to watch this band live one day – that would be amazing!

“Cards for Tigers” initiative by Cupcake Richard Cake Shop13. August 2014
Cupcake Richard Cake Shop is a tiny online, vegan & gluten free, cake shop, based in Cape Town, who love love tigers (all cats really) and are really passionate about tiger conservation. They have launched a Postcard Project, based on the WWF project, for rangers who are dedicating their lives to saving these awesome animals. They wanted to do something nice for them, so they got five of South Africa’s amazingly talented artists to each supply them with work to create a set of tiger inspired postcards. The following artists were kind enough to participate: Kirsten Beets, Maria Lebedeva, Wonder Meyer, Elsabe Milandri, Andrew Sutherland
They now have a limited amount of 100 sets available. Each set includes all five postcards and the addresses of the brave rangers who are risking their lives to protect tigers against poachers. This project was inspired by the World Wildlife Fund’s “Cards for Tigers” initiative. You send a postcard to a ranger to tell them how awesome they are! Each set is R200.00 (excluding shipping) and absolutely 100% of the profit is donated towards the Save Tigers Now campaign, for tiger conservation.
You can contact them on this email address firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to own a set or 2 or 3. Wolves is also going to be stocking them soon soon.
*Thanks so much guys for my set of postcards, they are really really pretty…
Hello everyone, We-Are-Awesome and I are amped to announce that we will be starting a new Levis series called ‘Live in Levi’s’ on both our blogs and this time around not only will we be showcasing some of South Africa’s coolest, talented individuals, where they live and what they do, but every month we will also be giving away Levi’s vouchers and all we want to see is your interpretation of the theme ‘Live in Levi’s’ – just post a picture of yourself on Instagram in any Levi’s item of clothing and then tag myself @miss_luckypony and @weareawesomedotcom and add this #LiveInLevis. We’re making it super easy for you guys to enter and who wouldn’t want some free Levi’s awesomeness? So get posting and good luck.
We’re also going to be showcasing some of Levi’s new in store product and I’m starting with this very cool ladies denim and white collared shirt that I spotted and snapped up immediately. I love denim shirts, in fact I think I own close to 6 of them, but I don’t have one like this. Love the collar detail and how it highlights whatever you choose to wear around your neck.
I’ve taken photos of some of my favourite accessories with this awesome piece, I also saw a very cool short black denim jacket that I think may have my name on it next time I go shopping.
It may be late on this Friday, but I’m going to share a song with you guys anyway. Here is a really cool, laid-back song by a band called Tame Impala.
