Merry Belated X-Mas

I forgot to post this before Xmas! My last bit of handmadeness for 2010 - My first attempt at homemade jam (apricot) and star shaped scones!

Merry Christmas to everyone and thankyou for stopping by and leaving your comments here. I really appreciate the feedback and loved meeting you all and finding out about your work too.

Looking forward to a creative 2011.

Inspiration - Art & Coffee

I love the design above done for Dead Man Espresso a newish cafe (probably not that new!) located in South Melbourne. Their coffee is fantastic and the people that work there are lovely!

The guys who designed the image above are Webuyyourkids a collaboaration between Sonny Day & Biddy Maroney. They design T-shirts, websites, logo's, packaging and band posters.

I also love the film Dead Man - which must have been of some influence to the artwork and name?!

Artist Inspiration - John Dyer Baizley

I'm loving the artwork (and music) of John Baizley at the moment! - he is the singer and guitarist from Baroness (who I saw with Metallica the other week) and he is also the artist who did their album covers.

Can see the Mucha inspiration - and I love the modern take on the Art Nouveau style.

Now I am off to see if I can buy a print!
