Q&A with Rachel of I Make. You Wear It.

As a craft-a-holic, I’d love to be embellishing wares all day errday. But craft goddess and design maven Rachel Burke takes it a step further. She started her journey, which you can view in full at www.imakeyouwearit.com, sewing a dress a day for an entire year. Her creations were later sold online at auction to raise […]

Coachella Style Snaps: Weekend One

Although I wasn’t at Coachella, I feel as if I were. The Coachella fashion scene was a flood of fringe (obvi), floral crowns, crochet and kimonos, all of which I expected. But then again, there were some delightfully unexpected twists as well! I was really diggin’ the printed two pieces sets I was seeing– aka […]

Marusya Pianzina by Tasya Kudryk for C-Heads Magazine

How dreamy!! I had to include every last image from this Tasya Kudryk shoot featuring angelic model Marusya Pianzina. Shot in suburban Moscow, it embodies everything fanciful and whimsical (aka right up my alley). The stylist, Lesia Paramonova, was greatly inspired by nature and the world around her. But I’d argue she takes inspiration from an alternate world– […]


The King of Doodling: Keith Haring

Keith Haring is in many ways the forefather of doodle art. He was a street artist whose career began in the subways of New York City. It was there that he first experimented with graffiti art and came up with his signature images such as dancing figures, “radiant babies”, barking dogs, and large hearts. While […]

Wonky, Wacky and Wonderful: Junko Shimada's Fall 2014 Collection, Crafturday Blog

Wonky, Wacky and Wonderful: Junko Shimada’s Fall 2014 Collection

I can’t get over the bold and bright colorful palette used in Junko Shimada’s Fall 2014 show. The visual culture clash was readily apparent in her show and kept things more than interesting. She combines elements of a French surrealist painter with details of her Japanese heritage. The result is splashes of color creating loud, graphic prints, and satiny […]


Pop Graphics and Psychedelics: Michael Willis

  The type of artwork that Michael Willis creates is quickly becoming the signature style of this generation’s “pop art”. A collage-type style (think Brandi Strickland) infused with pop graphics reminiscent of the 80s (think Yoko Honda) creates a killer combo. Michael Willis adds a flair of his own by throwing in some 60s psychedelia. Bold […]

Vanessa Mooney Takes Body Jewelry to the Next Level

Wow, I have a new respect for Vanessa Mooney. There were almost too many amazing photos to choose from. Vanessa always delivers on incorporating beautiful turquoise and coral stones into her pieces, but what I wasn’t expecting was all the chain body jewelry. There is chain in all shapes and sizes, going in all different […]


Japanese Illustrator Chika Takei

Chika Takei is a Japanese Illustrator that embodies all that is bubbly and pastel. Her illustrations have a very pop culture-esque look to them that remind me of Roy Lichtenstein’s style. They’re very tongue-in-cheek and cutesy, which would explain why these illustrations have mass appeal. Takei is currently getting her work featured in magazines, children’s […]

Q&A with Lo and Chlo (but mostly Lo), Crafturday Blog

Q&A with Lo and Chlo (but mostly Lo)

Unique donuts and exquisite jewelz…it doesn’t get much better than that. I was lucky enough to catch a few questions with Lo– the creative genius behind the jewelry brand, Lo and Chlo. But that’s not to say her equally-important counterpart, the adorable pug Chlo, doesn’t pull his own weight in cuteness. I was first drawn […]
