tessa edwards

 obviously consistency isn't a strong point.
Here we go AGAIN!

I just found about Tessa Edwards.

She has some pretty cool work.. from journal work to finished product! Reminds me that I must try harder to put more consistent effort into things.. geez.. Anyway, enough about me, check out her site

Isn't it odd... and perhaps fitting, that the word 'magniloquent' is rather magniloquent itself?
It does make me feel slightly pretentious but I do love florid language.

If only i could...

 afford Visionaire's Alexander McQueen edition.
I'm a sucker for poetic touches and this one wrenches the heart like no other.
Images inspired by McQueen that, when planted and nourished turn into a bed of wildflowers... The idea itself is just incredible (Personally, I would wish for a flowering tree  - not for a long long long time please, but anyway...) and a poignant reminder that death begets life, life begets death and so the cycle continues, the living a memorial to those who lived.

Postcards from Paris - Lacroix

Christian Lacroix, known for his deliciously extravagant haute-couture ladies wear - dripping with embroidery and lace, is also a highly regarded illustrator.
What excites me is the way that he uses modern technology to a traditional effect, as seen in these postcards picked up at the Lacroix exhibition at the Musée de la Mode et du Textile in 2008. Using a program such as illustrator or photoshop he has 'painted' these figures in a freehand style that one might ordinarily create manually with ink pen and watercolour. The lively, loose illustrations go against the grain of regular digital illustration as they do not aspire to perfection or tidiness, but take advantage of the crazy  unpredictability of mouse and digital brushes.

Postcards purchased at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs in Paris.
