Burton in Wonderland.

This is a project by Kirsten Becken called Plain. I think it's slightly wicked. She asked other artists to draw on her lovely photographs...and this is what came from it...
 This is the sort of art I love to love. 
It's as if fantasy meets beauty in a sort of Tim Burton/ Lewis Carroll kind of way.

Two Gingas, One Clip.

Dear Ev, 
I am truly sorry I haven't included you in my blog earlier.
 I hope you can forgive me and that this little clip makes you feel delightfully happy. 
Yours truly, 
your friend Jane.

(also, love Sara Bareilles)

Aro Bus Stop Boutique.

As I was walking along my Aro St on my morning way to work, I noticed a girl tagger in this bus stop. I not only thought she was awesome for the fact that she was a girl tagger, but she also had the most wicked colorful-grunge-esque style and the most gorgeous smile. From that morning I couldn't wait to walk home at the end of the day to see what she had created
...blatantly awesomeness.

(This is also a random piece of brilliance found on the streets of Wellington, made me laugh...)

To Draw or...

Drawing should be attempted. Because it's fun. And because all the weird creatures you create are little bits of you, and that's wonderfully charming and delightfully insightful.

Happily Responsible.

Man's first responsibility is to be happy.

The second is to make everyone else Happy.

Learning is Genius.

The best thing for being sad is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then – to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.

Her Morning Elegance.

I remember finding this years ago and it starting my absolute adoration for stop motion. I just came across it again and felt the need to share it's wonderful loveliness with you. It makes me think about that moment before you really wake up, you know that point when you just lay in bed and haven't opened your eyes yet... I wonder what everyone thinks about at that point. I seem to lay in bed for quite some time...just thinking.
 I think it's becoming one of my favorite parts of the day.

The Lovable.

This is from one of my favourite artists Julia Potts. She has just started animation and I can't contain my excitement. It's a little bit gruesomely-weird but that's what I think makes it so watchable... She's one of those artists that combines the disturbing with the lovely and through it creates wonderful creatures and images.

Weekend minus Welli.

Uni break almost over...incredibly sad about this. However, a weekend away to the home of the most wonderful people only made me incredibly happy.
