Under Construction

Lizzie

This is a stellar representation of what the daily grind can do to a girl. Love that her feet are off the ground, love the dress, and love the old-timey briefcase. Where can I get one to corral my inner chaos?

Star Wars posters by Ollie Moss

Sean

Just look at these amazing posters for the original Star Wars trilogy by Ollie Moss. They are available for purchase (but probably not for long) for $500 a set. The use of the silhouette and scene are very clever, the two moons for C3PO, the cloud city to define the mask on Boba fett? Come on—star wars fan or not, you have to admit the beauty of these prints.

Chris Garcia

Chris Garcia is an artist living in Los Angeles who loves the act of customization—specifically with cars and bikes, which you can tell from his paintings. I like the combination of solid color with detailed paintwork.

Pixel Spillage

I spotted this at Gothamist a last week and I love this kind of street art. This pixel water splash was found on Mercer Street. Imagine walking down the street and running into this? It’s most likely buried in snow now. Thanks to the artist(s) who did this for making me believe there is good in this world.

screen prints

prints

I’ve been dying to do some silkscreening ever since I left school years ago, so I finally got some things together and turned a small space in my apartment into a DIY screen printing studio. These are my first prints; they are a one color print on paper, inspired by old nyc subway signage. I thought I’d keep it fairly simple while I iron out the kinks of doing this solely in my apt. As a designer, I spend so much time in front of the screen so this is an outlet to get my hands dirty. I cant wait to get going on the next project. You can see more pics here.

Dumbo Arts Festival

Sean

So many cool things happening this weekend, and I won’t be around. But you should definately check out the Dumbo Art’s Festival.

“Imagine artists working in their studios, musicians and street performers appearing out of nowhere, artists creating murals before your eyes, poets reciting to passers-by, kids enjoying puppetry and music, DJs spinning in the streets, and wildly creative art installations everywhere. The Dumbo Arts Festival takes place on September 24th, 25th and 26th and attracts 150,000 visitors over 3 days and includes 150+ studios, 35+ galleries, 40+ arts organizations and a host of family friendly venues. The festival strives to offer something for everyone with artists and audiences of all ages and backgrounds. It strives to be accessible and sophisticated, to reflect New York’s creative community, to be real and flavorful, to show some grit and some polish, to be smart, creative and high quality – it is the Dumbo Arts Festival.”
