lena sjöberg

Lena is a Swedish illustrator, who likes drawing dogs, although she is no dog owner, not even very fond of dogs...but she draws them very well! 'Langharig' is almost the same in swedish as in dutch, funny.

crazy cow

we made this crazy cow ourselves
you need: an empty bottle of cleaning product, white paper to cover it (papier maché-like), fluo paint, cardboard for ears, buttons for eyes, iron whire with little stuff for horns et tadaa!

aestheticapparatus

It's kinda neat when two mediums we like, music and artwork, combine in such beautiful screen printed concert posters.
aestheticapparatus, started as a fun side project from 'real' work.
Now, it is a full time, full-fledged, insanely unstoppable, and occasionally award winning design mega-studio. They will break your heart and drink your blood.

paumes


jeehaa! I've received three paumes books by post today (ordered at yvestown webshop):

ateliers de filles 2
san fransisco kitchens
chambres d'enfants à paris

allright, I admit, this is another addiction...

These japanese books always make me very happy (and who doesn't like to see other people's interiors?)
even though you don't understand a word of it (all written in japanese), the photography of hisashi tokuyoshi gives a lot of inspiration.

in the picture below you can see him at work at eva's place (two months ago)!
the belgium paumes book will be ready soon, we'll let you know!

NY

our dear friend monique went to New York with her teenagers.
they had a great time, nice weather and did a lot of shopping
seems like we are a bit jealous (well ok, we are)
and look, she even bought us a souvenir: jelly beans and a little kidrobot "lucky zipper pull"
the fun of these kidrobots is that you don' t know in advance which puppet you will find in the box.


Toer de Nord

you can find us at Toer de Nord, next weekend!
we will be at the 'trendy corner'
there will also be a second hand fair, music (el crème glace Quès, Societé Anonyme and even Buscemi), a vintage carnivale, a jeu de boules tournament and free riksja-taxis driving back and forth between Park Spoor Noord and Toer de Nord!
so don't hesitate, come over!

drool drool

we are so fond of the illustrations and fine art of Sebastiaan van Doninck...that an occasional drool could escape from our mouth whilst viewing....*sorry for that*






we always drool all over the images of Sebastiaan de Coninck....soooo nice!

saturday night

does not always have to be sex, drugs and rock 'n roll :-)
my daughter and me made muffins, decorated them with loads of sugar and then made this awful snapshot (they looked better in reality, for sure!)

shoes

these little shoes are never used
never fitted my daughter
probably will never be worn
but I like them too much
