With a passion for design and a love for sewing, I’ve been creating clothing for myself and friends as far back as I can remember. I really relished the thought of being able to share my creations with a wider audience and take my passion to the next level. That said, this Summer marks the debut of my first collection for my clothing line, Ilana Kohn.
I was immediately taken with the work of California artist Zack Paul. Especially the images created on various bits of driftwood and found natural objects. The most perfect backdrop to his clean, geometric images.
Stumbling across the comics of artist Vanessa Davis just made my day. Her personal meanderings and sketchy style just make me want to read every little thing I can get my hands on. I especially enjoy the memior-esque series she’s been creating for Tablet Mag. I can’t think of any better way to procrastinate on […]
At first glance, I was wondering what was going on in the illustrations of UK illustrator Gemma Robinson. Marmite! Shoulda known! I’ve become familiar with this British oddity courtesy of my significant other, who just loves to smear the questionable stuff all over his toast. So heck, a whole book full of adorable illustrations about […]
Los Angeles painter Lisa Solberg was just what I was in the mood for this morning, as I was glancing through my links. Color, lots of color, tossed about, smeared and swirled all over the canvas. It really hits the spot. She also has a new video of her painting process.
With 2010 almost upon us, it’s time to replace my 2009 edition with one of these calendar beauties. Among my favorites are the Matisse like screen printed calendar from Lena Corwin & Mociun, The Wild Uknown’s Year of Feathers and Song Writers calendars, Camilla Engman’s calendar filled with a years worth of her incredible images, […]
I’m such a sucker for the childlike work of illustrator Joanne Neborsky. It reminds me of hiding under my bed as kid, cutting pictures out of magazines, and surreptitiously drawing on the wall where no one would see it. But, heck, I’d let Neborsky come and draw all over my walls any day.
As such a fan of New York illustrator Josh Cochran’s work, I was excited to discover that he has several limited edition prints, as well as t-shirts, alongside artists Dalek — a Lost At E Minor contributor — and Rueben Rude available through Neon Monster – an online, and brick and mortar art and design […]
How much better can it get than little dollops of contemporary art interspersed throughout the breathtaking setting of Champagne Pommery’s Domaine in Reims, France. The most interesting part here is that this is an ongoing tradition at Champagne Pommery, going all the way back to the 19th century ‘when Madame Pommery commissioned sculptor Gustav Navlet to carve four bas reliefs for the estate and later had the famous cabinet maker and glass artist Emile Gallé create a solid oak Pommery barrel that holds up to 19,816 gallons (100,000 bottles). This barrel was displayed at the 1904 Worlds’ Fair in St. Louis’. The upcoming Sixth Pommery Exhibition, Sons & Lumieres, will be curated by French artist Bertrand Lavier and will include ‘everyday objects often set in difficult spaces’.
I love it! With the CD now being eclipsed by the MP3, I find myself feeling even more nostalgic for the simple charm of the cassette. Australian artists Andrew Smart and Jared Schmidt create ‘large scale hand-made wooden cassette tapes, routed, sanded, bogged, primed, and painted with a high quality paint finish’. Aha! The perfect way to memorialize my old mix tapes.
