forget the container store,
all i need is my nylon
chinatown bags


I lug these
all over nyc.


they're so handy and cool
that I even have them sitting out
in overhead storage.


i'm digging the
plaid applied
to chairs!



Paola Navone
has done it again.



way more fun than the
eames shell chair.

it made me think:
work is hard.



hard for everyone



even the
seemingly toughest
of them all sometimes
loose their cool.



cursing the
mountains



wanting to be elsewhere
wanting to be doing
something else.



but hey,
that's life.


no pain, no gain

lately,
i've had the
urge to stick a
vintage flower
on everything
i make.


especially
on something
that is very pure
and minimal


to make
it explode and
bloom like a flower
...like the virgin
de guadalupe
!



it makes me
think of my youth
and going to the sticker
store on pine street


I remember having an
incredible collection
of flower stickers.


i refused to use them.
i would just browse through
them daily and fight the constant
urge in my body to rip off the
back and stick it!


i was quite
a restrained child.



i still am.



once and a while
I have to tell myself to let go
of something precious


or
put it to use



something
that I guard and suffocate
with the routine glance of the eye;
the brush of a finger




there's nothing
worse than curating
objects like they're
in a museum.




I'm guilty
as charged

the mixed emotions
of our sheltering sky









paintings by
JMW Turner




we're always at a loss for
words when trying to recall
a sunset or that feeling
before a big storm



and after...



when the
clouds lift


and the light
becomes more
magnificent than
on a clear day.



even though we
think we have control,
we spend every moment of our
waking lives trying to express,
understand and articulate what
we're feeling or experiencing
on this foreign planet



and
in our own
minds



to confront that chaos
we use whatever we can
get our hands on to
make sense of it



and people still ask
"why does art matter"?



ps:

"I couldn't
possibly tell you.

It's here.
Can't you feel it?

everything is
in color and I can
feel the air"

love these
images posted
by ensuite



you know
sage green/red
is my favorite color
combination


weird, eh?


my sparse apt.
decor plays off of


red
white
green


it could very easily
go the wrong way,
and look holiday



I love working with
color combos that
walk the fine line.

the white chimp






I saw a great doc
on Jane Goodall at
the Sausalito Film Fest



I remember seeing Jane
speak when I was 15 or so.
She gave one of the most
inspiring lectures I've
heard in my life



without a doubt,
I think she is the most
influential woman
in the world


an advocate
for chimps and thus
an advocate of humanity




2 or 3 things
you might not know:


Jane's mother
left her provincial
life in Britain to journey
with her to africa and
live in the jungle.


for the 1950's,
it was pretty rare for two
women to do something like that
especially considering Jane was 23
and had no field experience.



the photos above were
taken by national geographic
photog Baron Hugo van Lawick
who was sent to Gombe to photograph
a young woman he heard was
living with the chimps.



they fell
in love.



I can see why.
look how beautiful
she was and still is.

i did not mean to
leave you hanging




you must assume
from my last post
that I'm on a very
long vacation


and you're
becoming a bit bitter
that I'm living such
a life of leisure



or maybe
not



but to clear the
rumors and afternoon
tea gossip, I am in fact
not in new york.


because
I am working
on a project



and I'm missing
2 or 3 terribly.


I promise
to get in a better
posting routine
this fall




ps:

you're summer
been good?


what's the
best thing you've
done? the best day?
