Earlier this month Lauren and I escaped city life with our dear friend Grace, of Stripes & Sequins , for a weekend chock-full of sun and DIY. With an abundant supply of rhinestone and brass curb chain, we decided to try weaving the components together to make our own collar necklaces. It was fun to see how wonderfully different the pieces turned out - each so fabulous in their own unique way! Honestly, isn’t that the best part about DIYing with friends?

We found some great new work put out by Pat Perry , an artist and illustrator who calls Grand Rapids, Michigan home. In between showing his art from coast to coast or working with an assortment of clients, Pat travels as much as possible. Although he is happy to be able to speak and have an audience through his artwork, he does his best everyday to listen and learn from the world he lives in. His series of sketchbook drawings reflect this beautifully as well. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
While in an airplane bathroom in 2010, photographer and mixed media artist Nina Katchadourian spontaneously slapped a toilet seat cover on her head and snapped a picture. Noticing that the resultant image evoked 15th-century Flemish portraiture, Katchadourian was inspired, and used her next 14-hour flight, from San Francisco to Auckland, to create a new photo series, Lavatory Self-Portraits in the Flemish Style . The result is a hilarious and irreverent group of photos, a comment on the nature of portraiture and the connection between modern and Medieval visual cues, but also just pictures of a very serious Katchadourian with toilet paper on her head. Click through to see some of our favorite shots from the project, and then be sure to check out Katchadourian’s website for more of her work.
This is an ongoing series of small mixed media drawings. Each one is an imagined apology combined with a pencil portrait drawn from found pictures of people I've never met. Although I'm British, I've lived in the USA for the last 16 years, which means I come from a place where everyone constantly aplogises for everything, and I live in a place where no one ever apologizes for anything. This series has come about as a result of that experience. The pieces are also intended to explore the capability of a short, contextless phrase to insinuate a variety of larger and more complex narratives in the perception of the beholder.
