Marks Sign

marks-sign-20

Shane has a friend called Mark who is the most amazing local artist who paints pretty much anything you can imagine. He was the talented hands behind Desmond and The Tutus’ second album cover and made us the best family portrait (before our Neens came along).

The thing about Mark is that you can show him absolutely anything, any photo, any typeface, any reference and he’ll make it for you in his crazy talented style. So Shane knowing just how talented this man is has made it his mission to help get Mark’s name out there by helping him start an online business, because more people need to see and OWN Mark’s work.

Jedediah Corwyn treehouses-01

I came across this awesome project by Jedediah Corwyn on Booooooom the other night. This artist’s latest series titled ‘somewhere small’ is made up of tiny handcrafted treehouses which are built in and around succulents and cacti pot plants. When I saw them they literally made me smile like a Cheshire cat high on catnip, they also made me want to build my own teeny tiny treehouse in one of my plants. He also hand makes pottery, silk rugs, furniture, sculptures, paintings, and various other things that occupy each house.

I love this idea so much.

Liberty-Bespoke

I absolutely love stationary, when I was a kid I was obsessed with my paper swaps and pencil sets, in fact believe it or not (and if you don’t believe me I will send you a photo) I still have pencil sets from when I was little that have never ever been used, they’re still as sharp as the day they left the factory. I also still have my entire paper swap collection from when I was in Primary School, which by the way I’m admitting with pride. Yip I’m a little nuts, nuts about stationary. Can I get a high-5?!

Now that I’m an adult my taste in this art form has changed slightly and that’s why I’m so excited to tell you guys about Liberty Bespoke. If you take a drive to 4th Ave in Parkhurst you will find the creative headquarters for one of the most beautiful and luxurious stationary brands in South Africa. Liberty Bespoke is a 100% locally designed and made stationery and gift brand created and founded by the lovely Dagmar Palmer.

I think about you everyday

POLONY-WEB

Adi and I worked on a new project for our creative collective called Churche. We wanted to create a series that we could share everyday for a whole week and we were hoping that people would like them enough to share them too. So thanks to everyone who liked, commented and shared these posts, we really appreciate all the support.

If you guys haven’t seen all of them I have included them all here in the order that they went up and if you would like to follow us on Instagram or Facebook just click here and here.

We’re also thinking of perhaps creating a few more of these and having an exhibition where you can buy them, do you guys think that’s a good idea?

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.
