Trevor & Pradeep

Really dig the "Book Art Collection" from from Trevor & Pradeep (sorry, wasn't able to
find a link or more info about them.) Using just books and great photography from Jeremy
Wong
, they create an image that has movement and drama. Kinda need to get my hands
on these.

Something a little cheekier and saucier than usual for this Tuesday morning... Actually,
totally forgot about these collages until I saw this very effective ad for Agent Provocateur
(via @thoughtbrain).

Anyway, love these pieces from Dutch mixed-media artist Hanneke Treffers, who goes
by Handidan. Love the retro pinup style collage, jewel tones and rich textures. And, the
scratched out eyes and faces gives it all a bit more bite.

Bill Murray Love


(image via DKNG) Click here for a larger image.


Had no idea how popular Bill Murray art was! We've had two very popular prints of him
(a sold out one from Bungaloo Studio and the new one from Stanley Chow) and there
was one Derek and Jully talked about from ArtCon. So, I was pleasantly surprised to
come across these prints from Gallery 1988's "Please Post Bills" art tribute to Bill Murray.
Some pretty cool work from a variety of artists, click here for the full collection.

This doesn't look too hard to make...

Not sure if you can tell from the pictures just how awesome these angled DIY bookshelves
are. Looks like they're using simple 2" pine lumber to create a way more interesting display
piece / bookshelf. Trying to think of a place in the shop that we can do this in.

On a side note, these pictures are of Parisian restaurant Derriere (yes, that's the name
and it does mean behind..) The simple yet genius concept of the restaurant is that you
are suppose to feel like you've been invited to a friend's hope for a warm cozy meal.
Check out more pics of the beautiful space here.)

Tauba Auerbach

Kinda freaking out over Tauba Auerbach's work (and her super cool website, check out
the table of contents, which is totally consistent with her work's style.) Most of her work
has a very powerful graphic patterny feel, but what I really love is what she did with type.
Beyond creating a different graphic for each individual letter, what she does is make them
interact with each other one rich textural pattern. Really dig this.

Tom Gauld

Maybe it's the moody overcast day, but woke up wistfully thinking about this perfect image
from London illustrator and Guardian (one of the best newspapers out there!) cartoonist
Tom Gauld. Haven't checked out his weekly cartoon in a while and thought these subtle
and witty illustrations from his photostream were the perfect antiidote to this cloudy day.

Caddo Lake


Magical swampy tree forrest and tiny human being.



This was a pretty huge weekend for us. (Not only did ShopDad, ShopKid, and Jully spend
Saturday morning downtown for an Occupy Dallas march. AND, Jully and Derek partied
at the not-to-be-missed-one-of-the-best-events-in-Dallas ArtCon.) I headed east toward
Louisiana to the beautiful Caddo Lake for some canoeing, porch time, and chilling out
with awesome friends. Texas can be so pretty, y'all.











Some kids building a badass fort by the lake.


Extreme kammocking!
