[Street Art Sundays] eL Seed

I love lettering and typography, so calligraphy being a form of that, I immediately take notice. 

Arabic is such a unique beautifully written language. eL Seed (French-Tunisian) has created something called calligraffiti to describe his street art, which is a mix of calligraphic Arabic lettering with a geometric touch. 

To me, it's outstanding.

Beautiful Yarn Weaving by Jay Mohler

I've realized recently that I'm really drawn to geometrical designs. I like order, math, rhyme and reason.

Jay Mohler, from Asheville, North Carolina, makes beautiful Ojos de Dios (Eyes of God). These woven works are made with simple materials, but the results are very striking. Check out Jay's Etsy page if you are interested in purchasing!

[Tuesday Tattoos] Rodrigo Tas

Entrancing tattoos are the best way to describe Rodrigo Tas' work. Hailing from Sao Paulo, Brasil, this new master creatively uses negative space to make the design shine. I am in awe.

[Street Art Sunday] Irony & Boe

We all need more animals in our lives!

I just started reading Cesar's Way by Cesar Millan, so I've definitely got animals on the brain. :)

This is a fun collaboration between Whoam Irony and Placee Boe in London. It would definitely brighten my day to pass by it in person!

[Fashion Fridays] Stone Cold Fox Fall 2014

Stone Cold Fox is a Los Angeles indie clothing store (860 South Los Angeles Street Suite 525, shop online here). Their Fall 2014 Collection 'Ladies and Gentlemen' is stunning. No surprise there since I love lace designs. 

How sad that women have to cover up their chests while men can roam free. I love the freedom of these dresses and the 'daring' notion that you could go without a bra or coverup. Let's hope that society continues to open up to natural ways of expressing oneself.

Eric Standley's 'Stained Glass' Paper Windows

Some things just make you stop and say, "woah." This is one of those things.

Eric Standley is an art innovator in the sense that he is using technology to push the boundaries of traditional art. To say I'm impressed with his work would be an understatement. I am utterly blown away by the intricacy.

Eric laser cuts heavy paper and layers them together to create phenomenal designs, usually borrowed from gothic or islamic structures.

Check out this short video first and then see more of his work below. He has a huge collection, which you can see here.
