Art, Ungulate, Abandoned Books.

Friday, May 17, 2013

Three things to kick off the weekend: "Looking at Art," Shizu Saldamando's portrait series of art spectators, drawn in ballpoint pen,


a duo of informative animal charts by Hong Kong-based designer Furze Chan,


and lastly, these, captured by the very talented Emily Blincoe.


Additional treasures, just because:
-Books abandoned on the stoops of Brooklyn.
-"The Fine Art of Sighing."
-Mark Twain's description of his lost cat, Bambino: "Large and intensely black; thick, velvety fur; has a faint fringe of white hair across his chest; not easy to find in ordinary light." I love this so much.

Wishing you a happy weekend! (I'll be attempting another kitchen experiment for a friend's birthday on Saturday. Hope it turns out better - or at least better-looking - than this one.) See you Monday.

If I ever lose my black cat, I will be borrowing Mr.Twain's description for the flyers I'll post around town.

Also, Emily Blincoe's photos are fantastic - I've just spent 30 minutes on her instagram loving every shot. Awesome. Have a great weekend, Shoko!

Wow. I am so impressed by those ballpoint pen portraits. And those Emily Blincoe prints are MAGNIFICENT. Also, you would LOVE Loveless Cafe. Whenever you visit Nashville, I'll make you a map of good eats!
