Kareena Zerefos has been one of my favourite illustrators ever since i discovered her work at Finders Keepers Market and Yen Magazine and so I am very excited to find out that she has collaborated with Zoe Sernack to create limited edition silver charms! Oh how i want one! I love the deer and elephant! Just lovely x

Mark Ryden LOVE!!

Last time I was in Melbourne they had his paintings in this small gallery, i then decided that I will become a person who actually buys artwork.

His work stands out so much to me. They are so pretty and yet has that haunting tone underneath. One day I will own a Mark Ryden painting. One day I will.

Mark Ryden, The Tree of Life

Mark Ryden, Virgin and Child

“there is a very dark and painful side to life, but that is natural. people in our culture think they shouldn’t ever be unhappy. they think being unhappy is unnatural. they try and make it go away. they take pills or they go to therapy to “fix” themselves. they blame themselves or others for their suffering. we need to understand that sadness is as much a part of this life as joy. it would be easy to just get bitter and cold while focusing on the dark side, but there is also an amazing, wonderful side of life. if you look for it, there is true magic all around us. maybe that sounds trite to the hardened self-protective modern ego, but there is magic in this miraculous life. if you open yourself, you do make yourself vulnerable to pain but the deeper pain you experience, the deeper joy you can have.”

– Mark Ryden

Neil Krug

I stumbled onto Neil Krugs work today (i stumble onto most things i find amazing). Looking at his photos i feel like im in one of those great american cowboy vs indian films, or woodstock in the 1960s, or amercian suburbia in the 1970s. Just lovely. Just looking at his work its kind of hard to realise that this was taken recently and not decades ago. I was looking at some of his work in Pulp  a psychedelic collaboration between him and supermodel Joni Harbeck and its just awesome, i love it, the photos remind of something i would find in a dusty collection of records in an old box in garage sale down my street.
