When you've lived in Arizona your whole life, you learn to appreciate unusual things like clouds, rain...and weather in general. Especially in the summers when it's so hot out for months on end, you welcome the cool breezes after a monsoon thunderstorm. Ever since I was a kid, I've been obsessed with weather. I used to watch lightning out my window with my brother when we were little.

I have pictures of clouds I took while in high school. And now I chase storms. The summers in Arizona bring the monsoon thunderstorms, and they are a blast to chase. We get amazing clouds, awesome dust storms and serious amounts of lightning. Miguel Balbás. Novelist Samantha Shannon on The Bone Season. Samantha Shannon photographed by Victoria Hely-Hutchinson. I’ve never had a supernatural experience,” says 21-year-old Samantha Shannon from her desk in a small pink room in her mother’s home just outside London. “I’ve been tempted to maybe have a tarot-card reading, but I don’t know if I’d necessarily want to know.”

Instead, her inspiration for The Bone Season, the ambitious first novel in a projected seven-part series to be published by Bloomsbury, came from an internship with literary agent David Godwin the summer after her first year at Oxford. Godwin had recently passed on Shannon’s first book, about an alien falling in love with a human girl, which Shannon started writing when she was 15. And yet Shannon parlayed Godwin’s rejection into a two-week job at his agency in the Seven Dials area of London, where, on the way to the office, she passed by a store that sold crystal balls. Instead, he read the draft in about three days. Shannon has since been lauded as “the next J. Samantha Shannon The Bone Season. Photographed by Eva K. Salvi “I always had a big imagination,” says Samantha Shannon.

“When I was a kid, I’d think up sequels to my favorite films and books or short stories before I went to sleep.” She’s not alone there. In childhood, we all had our little imaginary dream worlds populated by favorite characters and our own inventions. The difference with Samantha Shannon — the hailed 21-year-old author of this season’s most hotly anticipated fantasy novel, The Bone Season — is she never stopped building those worlds. At 13, Shannon took pen to paper for the first time, embarked on her first novel at 15, and was deep into the development of The Bone Season throughout her college years at Oxford University. As we talked to her, however, she seemed fairly undaunted for someone supporting her first novel and, let’s face it, so young. We had a quick chat with the author (whose book debuts Tuesday!)

Charles and Ray Eames are among the most important American designers of this century. They are best known for their groundbreaking contributions to architecture, furniture design (e.g., the Eames Chair), industrial design and manufacturing, and the photographic arts.

Charles Eames was born in 1907 in St. Louis, Missouri. He attended school there and developed an interest in engineering and architecture. After attending Washington University on scholarship for two years and being thrown out for his advocacy of Frank Lloyd Wright, he began working in an architectural office. In 1929, he married his first wife, Catherine Woermann (they divorced in 1941), and a year later Charles’ only child, daughter Lucia was born. Ray Kaiser Eames was born in Sacramento, California in the middle of the century’s second decade. Charles and Ray married in 1941 and moved to California where they continued their furniture design work with molding plywood. David Hicks. Albert Hadley Incorporated.

Me llamo David Esteban, nací en Madrid (España) en 1979, aunque en 2005, las circunstancias me llevaron a vivir a Nara (Japón) para realizar mi doctorado en el Instituto Superior de Ciencia y tecnología de Nara gracias a una beca del gobierno japonés. Durante mi estancia en Japón potencié muchas de mis facetas e hice cosas que nunca me hubiera imaginado, como poner mi voz en videojuegos, salir en un programa de televisión, o participar en la producción del cortometraje Made in Japan y el documental “Hobby”, que ganó el Premio “Alma” al Mejor Guión en el Festival de Cine Español de Málaga de 2008. Tras mi estancia en Japón, decidí no ejercer como doctor y me lancé al mundo del turismo y el marketing on-line especializado en Asia, lo que me llevó a trabajar durante más de dos años como Country Manager en Asia de la popular comunidad de viajeros Minube, una grata experiencia que me enseñó gran parte de lo que sé.

Biography[edit] Of English descent, Hollinghurst was born in Stroud, Gloucestershire on 26 May 1954, the only child of James Hollinghurst, a bank manager, and his wife, Elizabeth. [citation needed] He attended Canford School in Dorset.[1] Hollinghurst read English at Magdalen College, Oxford, from 1972 to 1979, graduating with a BA in 1975, and a MLitt in 1979. In the late 1970s he became a lecturer at Magdalen College, and then at Somerville College and Corpus Christi College, Oxford.

Early life[edit] Her parents divorced when she was a teenager.

When she was 14, she changed her name to "Zadie".[4] Despite earlier ambitions, literature emerged as her principal interest.

Voici une interview géniale (si, si, j’assume) de la géniale Alice Lane, qui est make up artist à New York. Je ne sais pas si vous vous souvenez à quel point j’avais été marquée par notre première rencontre à Paris. À l’époque, elle travaillait avec Aaron de Mey et j’étais tombée sous leur charme. Depuis, nous sommes revues, croisées sur des shootings, dans la rue… Et elle a commencé à construire sa carrière en solo. Aujourd’hui, elle travaille pour le Vogue US, le Vogue Italie et beaucoup d’autres. Franchement, vu son talent et sa passion, je ne suis pas surprise de sa réussite, et je me suis dit que ça vous intéresserait certainement de savoir comment on devient maquilleuse professionnelle.

HERRIOTT GRACE is a venture of father and daughter, and this is their story. Lance and Nikole Herriott live 3400 kilometers apart: his workshop is in Victoria, British Columbia, and her studio is in Toronto, Ontario. When she first made her home more than halfway across the country, they started to send packages back and forth. In some of those packages, Lance began to include his own hand carved spoons. He had been collecting wood since the early seventies, and used his best pieces for these gifts.

Nikole loved them; their balance and shape, the pieces were made with unmistakable care. She knew they were something special. One day it dawned on her that others might appreciate her father’s talent as she did, so Nikole asked if he would ever want to share his work. She told him, “Leave it to me, I know just the sort.” And with that, Herriott Grace was born. They also make, by hand, kitchen linens, cake flags, birthday candles, beeswax salve and cookie cutters.

Are relationships a trap, another construction to narrow the capacities of the mind? Dear Seeker, Why would we keep away from wanting, fear, and hope?

Tell me about the last time you were surprised. “Well, not to sound cynical, but the older I get, the less surprised I am about anything. I’ve always been one of those people who, even during the darkest times or the grimmest circumstances, is able to see the silver lining….even if I have to imagine HARD that it’s there. That’s how I felt right before I met my husband. Like so many people, I had suffered some not-so-great relationships, one in particular that took a long time to recover from. True love, the right job, a big change, a MIRACLE…yes, even when it’s hard, I allow myself to be surprised as often as humanly possible. In a way, Christene is sort of an elusive person to me. As the Editor in Chief of the now well-established startup, www.refinery29.com, Christene was a great source of inspiration.

Amazingly Kyle has only been into photographer for 9 months, but when you see his photos you will definitely think that is not the case. Check out this great interview where Kyle talks about where he finds inspiration, motivation, and how he feels about his decision to drop out of school to pursue traveling and photography.

Amazingly, you have only been interested in photography for the past year. What was it that sparked your interest in photography? I saw some photographs by Francesca Woodman online, and thought they were really interesting. It was the first time I had been so moved by photography. I showed them to a friend, and we started taking his parents camera to take photos of each other in abandoned houses that we found.

You’ve always been interested in art. Also, do you find inspiration for your photos from previous drawings and/or paintings that you have done? I try to plan things as much as possible.

Welcome to our second episode of The Weekly Flickr, a new series by Yahoo!

Studios that will showcase the work of members straight from the Flickr community. This week we peek into the life of a young man who found a career in photography, and only months after he got started. Kyle Thompson, 20, barely knew how to use a camera just over a year ago when he first started taking photos. But he has come a long way since embarking on his 365 project, in which he pledged to upload a new photo to Flickr every day for a year. He has less than 50 days left to go with his 365 and has already begun working as a freelance photographer. “I decided to do a 365 project because I saw so many people who had done them and improved so much,” says Kyle who lives just outside of Chicago, IL and describes his work at surrealist photography.

For all intents and purposes, he’s achieved that goal. “Before I started doing photography full-time, I was delivering pizzas,” Kyle says. “The concept was pretty simple. Ambera Wellmann.
