Moonassi_x_Kitsune_web1

Daehyun Kim-1

This is the illustrative work of Daehyun Kim. After graduating from university, he started to draw his characteristic drawings which formed part of his “Moonassi series”. Daehyun has been creating these pieces since 2008, they are all about himself and the people in his life.

I really like his bold graphic style and the fact that he only uses black when he draws. I also like how each one is a little story that you get to flesh out using your own imagination.

There is a lot more to this series on his site and they’re definitely worth checking out, you can also buy some of his original drawings so happy looking and maybe shopping.

Florence + Watson and the Sugarbush Mouse

August 7, 2015

BOOK AND SLIPPERS

My incredibly talented friends Danielle Bischoff, Rob van Vuuren and Lauren Fowler have recently released a very beautifully written and illustrated book called Florence + Watson and the Sugarbush Mouse. Dani was in Johannesburg a couple of weeks back and dropped off a copy for Nina James and I was so excited to get my paws onto it because I absolutely love Lauren Fowler’s illustrative style and Dani and Rob are such a fun couple that I knew the story would be awesome, which it was.

It’s a sweet rhyming tale of two honey badgers named Florence and Watson who go around singing and telling stories and the one they tell in this book is all about a Sugarbush Mouse named Petal who saves her village in a very special way. It’s such a lovely written and beautifully drawn book and it’s 100% South African which makes it’s 100% even more awesome. If you’re wanting a copy for your little one, or even yourself you can click here and order one. I highly recommend you do.

Sanda Anderlon

Sanda Anderlon-10

Sanda Anderlon is an artist who lives in Zagreb, Croatia. She makes both static and animated works, ranging in style, from metaphorical eye-candies, childish cartoons or old-school pen on paper studies to collaged XL narrative visual feasts, like the one below.

This giant collage is entitled Party, which describes as a drunken jungle in a two-storey collage. I just think it’s pure magic. There is so much going on, it’s like a modern day ‘Where’s Wally?’ Would love to get lost in this piece in real life.

Cool spaces: Apartments in Sweden

January 8, 2015

Stockholm-loft-9

Found these two amazing Swedish apartments on this blog. The first one is available to buy, if you have R19 000 000 lying around, yip you read right, crazy right? And the second one is probably not as much, it’s a small, charming space, but it didn’t have a price tag attached to it, I just liked the way it looked so included it in this post.
