Pick Me Up ’11

I think this year’s Pick Me Up graphic arts show was even better than last year’s!

Maira Kalman

Maira Kalman‘s art and illustrations, including childrens’ and adults’ books and a potted history of American democracy for the New York Times. No words, just crippling creative envy…

Kinetica 2011

Some photos and videos from the Kinetica art fair this weekend. I used a little CCTV lens on my E-P1 to take these, same as last year.

Arty house

We’ve spent the days between Christmas and New Year doing some jobs around the house – mostly drilling into the walls to put up art and shelving. It’s starting to look much more homely now.

The living room has a red and gold scheme against the pale grey walls. We’re just waiting to put up the curtains and have some vintage chairs re-upholstered then I think this room will really pop into life.

The bathroom is the first room pretty much finished – it’s got touches of old-skool pharmacy with the vintage framed labels and bathmat (from H&M). The shelves are reclaimed wood left over from a kitchen worktop!

Loads of shelving and frames in my room to house all my precious stuff.

Josh’s boy den – I love how he’s hung his art in a tight formation one one wall, and the industrial metal shelves filled with old wooden crates look good.
