Maria Magdalena van Wyk – The Wander Collection

December 2, 2014

Maria-Magdalena-van-Wyk-23

The other day a lovely young lass by the name of Maria Magdalena sent myself and NJ a little parcel in the mail. Inside it was a beautiful limited edition print called ‘Alice’ from her Wander Collection. She drew it to represent the unconditional and overwhelmingly instant love that she felt for her baby niece that was born on 14 September 2014 – I think I can relate to that feeling.

Nina has a whole bunny collection going in her room, so this print fits right in perfectly and I couldn’t be more pleased with it, it’s whimsical and detailed and so pretty and it makes for such a nice piece in her room.

The Super Neat Exhibition by Paper Snap started at Wolves last week Friday and it got such an awesome response. All the prints are super nice and so affordable, so I thought I would post some pictures up of the work in case some of you want to order some online. The show only comes down in the middle of Jan BUT the guys who designed the stuff are printing orders as they come in, so that if you want to buy any as Christmas presents, you’ll be able to collect them before Wolves closes for the holidays (±14th of Dec). Yes!

All prints vary from R350 to R450. So if you are keen on any, please drop Tasha an email at hello@wolves.co.za

Dani Loureiro – type genius

November 19, 2014

Dani-Loureiro-2

A little while back I saw some of Dani Loureiro’s amazing laser cut typographic work on Instagram and at an art fair in Joburg and I was blown away by it. And so this year for mine and Shane’s 6th year wedding anniversary, I decided to commission this local designer to make me a wooden typography piece as a gift for Shane. I came up with a saying ‘forever now then & always’ (these words hold special meaning to us both), she then laid it out in a font that she hand designed and then had it laser cut into the very awesome and intricate piece of art below. It came out amazingly, just like I imagined it would and I was so damn excited to give it to Shane, because he absolutely loves beautifully thought out and executed typography.
