The Peace Symbol

Ever wonder about the origin of the peace symbol? If you are like me, it has just “always been there” - like one of the the letters of the alphabet. This year the peace symbol turned 50 and I found its story inspiring.

First hand painted on banners and ceramic badges as a symbol to protest against nuclear armament in 1958. Quickly, it spread around the world and within ten years had become the international symbol of peace. To read more about the peace symbol's history, click here and here.

Around the globe, regardless of race or religious beliefs, millions have looked to the peace symbol to unite them. Becoming a cultural icon, the symbol is probably the most commonly used non-religious symbol of hope around the world - instantly recognized anywhere as the universal sign for PEACE.

Quite an impressive accomplishment for a little stick-figure image. Peace.

The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming

So, last night I was introduced to this wonderful little book: The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming written by Lemony Snicket and illustrated by Lisa Brown. (Not having kids, being Jewish or celebrating Christmas, we sometimes miss gems like these.) This deceptively simple, little book teaches the listeners about Hanukah all though the eyes of a particularly irate latke who runs down the street after jumping out of a hot frying pan. On this last night of the Festival of Lights, if you haven't read this intelligent, funny little book - please go out, find yourself a copy - learn a little and have a good laugh.



X'mass-a-go-go, Off to grandma's we a-go-go. Back after the weekend.

Gem Sweater Lady

So, sometimes you just assume that EVERYONE has been exposed to all the same stuff you have, especially when you have a lot in common. But then, in middle of a conversation, you realize the person you are talking with SOME HOW hasn't. In just that breath everything STOPS. "How could anyone miss the Gem Sweater Lady???" I was stumped.

Just in case you too SOME HOW missed that email from your friend with the link for the Gem Sweater Museum or perhaps this Leslie and the Lys' video (shown below) - you have now been exposed. Both are outrageous, hilarious and a bit confusing.

Perhaps you're in the know, but when was the last time you looked at the gem sweaters? My, how the collection has grown! With no further delay, I introduce to you Leslie Hall, the Gem Sweater Lady.

Self declared “Keeper of the Gems”, Leslie takes her collection very seriously. Each sweater is given a name and now there in a Mobile Gem Sweater Museum. Check out her band’s website, Leslie and the Lys, to see when the museum rolls into your town.

Just in time for the holidays! Get your Gem on.



Love the cover of this old Ed Embergley's drawing book.
The colors and the simple shapes of the monsters are great.

Everyday Monuments

So, I received a LOT of excited emails from you responding to my post about Jean Shim's Sound Wave in October. Well, I received an email the other day from Jean about the current project she is working on and I thought I'd share. This one sounds like fun!

Jean is currently collecting thousands of old trophies* for an upcoming art installation for the Smithsonian Museum: “Everyday Monuments.” Each donated trophy will be transformed by altering its figure’s pose to resemble the movements of everyday tasks and then incorporated into a large‐scale art installation. You can participate in this unique project by donating old trophies. To find out more information & download the donation form click here.

The form includes information on the Washington DC drop offs (due DECEMBER 13th), but if an alternative location in New York City or elsewhere if preferable, please contact the artist at info@jeanshin.com. For more information about Jean Shin, go to www.jeanshin.com.

“Everyday Monuments” will be a special installation at the Smithsonian American Art Museum on view May 1 – July 26, 2009.

*Please note that donated trophies will become a permanent part of the work of art, and will not be returned to the owner. The artist is solely interested in trophies with figurines.


In search of Ray Fenwick

So, it seems I have been searching for a man I have never met and never even knew existed: Ray Fenwick. That may sound a little weird, so let me back up and explain...
Sometime back, I feel completely head over heals for this image. It is hysterical. Imagine it on a very feminine garment, maybe with a little lace and printed a little smaller. WHARRGH! UGH. SLICE. HURRAH! How can you not laugh?

Being a commercial textile designer, it goes without saying that I see a lot of patterns in my line of work and it can be darn hard to impress me, but this one sure did. Knocked my socks off in fact. Time passed and I became obsessed: WHERE had I found the image? And even more, WHO had created it? I was at a lost and yet it had become so much apart of my day-to day life. It made me happy and no one I asked knew the answer. (It was sad.)

Time passed and then yesterday, thumbing through the book Over & Over (a book I thought I knew, but OBVIOUSLY didn't), I found my answer: Ray Fenwick! The print covered 2 pages in a different colorway, but there it was! Nearly jumped out of my skin!

I feel more complete knowing who had created the image that brought me so many laughs.

Be sure to check out more of his artwork, he's got a great sense of humor. My favorite are the small moments that occur in the patterns, graphics and posters - all straight to the point without too many words. Ray Fenwick, it is nice to finally met you. Thanks for making me laugh so much.


the Consumption Issue

In time for the holiday season, the latest issue of Mankind Mag is available on-line. This issue centers around Consumption. The questions are not heavy handed, it makes you laugh and rethink. The first page begins with a small note from the cover artist Gemma Correll. And like me, she thinks of herself as one of those who doesn't by very much, but decided to create a log of her purchases to see what she really buys. The cover is a result of chronicling those purchases.

The e-zine describes it intentions as, "In the following pages, you'll hear from artists and designers from all over the globe, dishing about what they purchase, how much they spend and why consumerism is such an issue. Stay tuned--- and be aware. Inspiration is bound to hit at any moment..."

Be sure to check out the article on page 6 about the cardboard box's recent induction into the National Toy Hall of Fame. And page 14's "Consumption is not a Religion" piece by Okat. And page 16, Rebecca Horwood's piece on "happy packaging". Kate Zander brings up a interesting point in her piece anticipating new art coming from these "dark ages". Check out Tara Donovan's styrofoam cup installations (page 25 & 26). Wow... Over all, way too much to list and lots of great artists to check out. Like the e-zine says, "Stay tuned--- and be aware. Inspiration is bound to hit at any moment..."

Trip to Seattle

Sorry for the lapse in posting, we were on a short vacation in Seattle. Lured by a surprise birthday party and free pace to stay, we found cheap tickets and off we went. The timing worked out so we could check out a vintage car my brother was interested in purchasing: a 1968, 2 door Volvo 122 s. Managed once again to have sunny weather in Seattle, eat too much food and over all have lots of fun. And yes, we bought the car (or I should say, we okayed the purchase for my brother). The car is a beauty - can't wait until it arrives! (More on that as it develops.)


twisted produce stickers

Reveling the hidden beauty in disposable materials, Rachel Perry Welty challenges our perception and perspective on value. Coaxing overlooked parts of daily life by reintroducing them into new forms that ask us to look again. Her meticulously crafted designs address complex themes of domesticity, identity, privacy and language with potency, grace, humor and whimsy – all out of disposable, ordinary materials such as twist ties, cash register receipts, medical records, food boxes, price tags and produce stickers.
Her current work centers around these scribbles images constructed from twisted produce stickers. I love their organic-geometric flow, small pops of color and how words are turned into repetitive textures. The twists and turns of these collages remind me of how the shadows play with a Calder mobile.

Perhaps what I am drawn to most is how Welty makes a connection that floats around you and entwines with your own thinking. You become more aware, not in a doom ‘n gloom sort of way, but rather more conscious of your choices than before. Some how more connected to their existence and their possibilities.

Debi van Zyl

The knitted creatures by Debi van Zyl always make me smile. Their hand knit texture and vintage buttons makes them feel cozy and familiar. Funny, simple proportions, stripes and great color combinations mix up the familiar with something a little unexpected and more playful. The perfect combination. Visit her blog or her shop to see more.


fly on the wall: circular painting

Circular Painting from Fly on the Wall on Vimeo.

The theme was the environment and the artist's responses to it. Filmed in South Africa by Fly on the Wall for the Discovery Channel. Numerous street artists, musicians, painters and animators contributed to the cause over a non-stop 12 hour period to make the 2 minute film.


The end is nigh

Lucha Robots

"When robots create their own super heroes..."

Amy Bean of Cozy Rampage creates the amazing Lucha Robots. I snatched up a few last weekend at the You Bizarre! craft show in San Francisco. I first fell for their silver spandex, exaggerated proportions and little lucha masks on-line. Their proportions fit together like futuristic puzzle pieces. It was much to my surprise that I could loved them even MORE in person. If only my camera wasn't broken - it would have been a great snapshot to see all the robots crammed into the mini wrestling pins - it made you want to dive right in. And the new space apes are fantastic. I must have seemed like such a spaz - it was IMPOSSIBLE to choose! In the end I came home with four. Amy was so generous, she gave me an extra one so I could have tag team wrestling matches at home. (Thank you Amy!) To get your own, visit Amy's etsy shop.

Elvis & the Pirate

Tonight is the Dia de Los Muertos procession in San Francisco. The San Francisco procession is the oldest in our nation and is particularly unique to its urban environment. If you've never been, you really should check it out. You'll never forget the experience. Be sure to bring candles and extra matches. For years, my husband and I have created giant paper mache masks to participate. Since we did not get a chance to make them this year, I am posting our favorites from 2005. All the details on the pirate are glitter, so they sparkle in the flickering candle light.

Truth in Prato, Italy

Because it rained ALL DAY today...

We haven't had rain like this all year and really needed it. I choose this image because it was happy and unexpected. More works by Truth can be found here. This one is in Prato, Italy.


monster shots

Some obsessions are short lived, others only fuel greater obsessions. My monster shot glasses from Munktiki are in the later category. Aren't they cool? It's hard to say which one is my favorite, I guess it depends on my mood. You can purchase your own here. Be sure not to miss the stacking mug sets. Imaginative and just plain wacky. Each is full of wise-crack humor and yet is exquisitely crafted - which is not an easy thing to pull off .

Spectacle: a chandelier created from discarded prescription eyeglasses by Stuart Haygarth (2006). Definitely wowed by the photo, but know we are missing out on the vibrancy of the light shinning through the lenses. It is said, that as the light is refracted through the several layers of lenses & various prescriptions that it creates a"mirrored ball" effect - which would be impressive to see.


DIY: black vinyl papel picado tabelcloth

A black vinyl version of the papel picado banners! Translated into a reuseable tablecloth is such a brilliant idea. I love the layering of the two cloths to give it that extra punch - it really shows off all the details. Visit the anticraft and download the tutorial to make your own!


handmade nation trailer

Have you seen the movie trailer yet??? (Go take a peek, I'll wait.) Scheduled for release in 2009, the documentary is the companion to Faythe Levine and Courtney Heimerl's recently released book of the same name. In it, they travel the country to paint a portrait of the rise of the DIY craft movement. Capturing the essence of this tight-knit community that has developed through websites, blogs and on-line shops and illustrating how it connects back with the greater public. A seemingly odd cocktail that combines historical techniques, punk, DIY ethos with traditional handiwork, modern aesthetics, politics, feminism & art. A seemingly odd cocktail, perhaps - but one that feels familiar and comforting. Handmade Nation shares a story about creativity, collaboration and determination. To learn more click here and here.


Ira Glass talks about the process

Found these words comforting. Thought I'd share. Thanks Ira!


sound wave

"Sound Wave" (2007) by Jean Shin
5.2 ft h x 9 ft w x 10.25 ft d

Working with cast-off objects, Jean Shin blurs the boundary between abstraction and representation. In her own words, Jean describes how her "work speaks of the optimism inherent in giving new form to life’s leftovers." Seeking "to recall an object’s past, as well as suggest its greater connection to our collective memories, desires and failures." Check out her website - her work is exquisite!

cotton monsters

With their vibrant colors, bulging eyes and large teeth, Cotton Monsters are both imposing and lovable. Jennifer Strunge is the spirit behind these cuddly gap-toothed monsters. Big or small, each monster is handmade from recycled materials and evolves intuitively without patterns - so no two are ever exactly alike. The Cotton Monster shop is usually sold out, but she posts often so, be sure to check back from time to time - you just might get lucky and be able to snag one for your very own!


Fibrocosm @ Creativity Explored

Check out the postcard that arrived announcing the Fibrocosm show opening THIS THURSDAY @ Creativity Explored. Creativity Explored is a nonprofit art center where artists with developmental disabilities create, exhibit, and sell art. Creativity Explored openings are always lots of fun, with a chance to meet some of the artists and live music. This exhibit goes beyond the wearable textiles to explore the possibilities of fiber-based sculpture, quilting, weaving, silk painting, and other surface design techniques. Many of the artists showing pieces in this exhibition delved into fiber arts for the first time. Don't miss this one!

Creativity Explored
3245 16th Street, San Francisco
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 9th, from 7-9 pm.
The show runs October 9th - November 19th.


spoon guitar

From the Karoo region in South Africa, Hannes Coetzee is mainly known for his unique playing technique using a spoon in his mouth to play slide guitar. A technique called optel and knyp. You can learn and hear more in David Kramer's documentary Karoo Kitaar Blues (2003). And by clicking here & here.


Steve the Chicken

"Steve the Chicken" was my first exposure to the photos of Kevin German (which can be purchased through Photoshelter). This single black & white image made a big impression on me. You can almost "feel" the squeeze of the little girl's hug around that chicken. How can you not smile? Again and again, I was drawn back to this image. Obviously, I needed to see more of his photographs. I admire how he is able to capture the essence of a moment and make the viewer feel that the image being seen is a snapshot from their own memory. Very powerful narrations. You can see more of Kevin's photos here and here. Kevin moved to Vietnam in 2008 & documents his travels though out South East Asia. You can follow his travels on his blog, Wandering Light.


California Academy of Sciences

Here's a few photos from the new California Academy of Sciences party the other night - just a a little peek, you'll have to visit to see more. The new building is indeed breath taking. With a four-story rain forest, aquarium, planetarium and natural history museum under a living roof - it is impossible to take it ALL in just one visit. Highlights of this visit: walking on the living roof, the colorful poison frogs, watching a crab climb up a rope, the tiny turtles, a giant bass, the moon jelly fish... Unknowingly, we stayed long past closing. Sitting on the floor watching the moon jelly fish alone in the dark (until the guard found us). What a way to end an amazing evening!

gathered together

gathered together 2009 calendar

This is the 4th calendar collaboration between Jill Bliss & Saelee Oh. Incorporating paper cut-outs, drawings, scraps of fabric, clay, bits of nature and other random objects into sweet little staged vignettes. Beautifully photographed. Great colors. The project explores the theme of "keeping a float" and you can learn more if you visit the website and can be purchased on-line directly from the artists: here and here.

My favorite page are February, July & October.

When I see these images, I can't be help imagine the elements IN MOTION! Imagine the the paper waves gently moving in the last January while the images on the strings dipped in and out of the water. October's sea monster swim across or the turtle in February... (I love that turtle.) July would be really fun to to animate and see the story evolve. Each page has a narration that when you close your eyes you can almost see them move...


runny bunny

Runny Bunny is one of those wonderful shops on esty that I know very little about, but suspect that the artist, Robin VanValkenburgh, is someone who experiment in her work and will be fun to watch out for. She has just started blogging so hopefully we will learn more soon. Obviously, I am drawn to the hybrid ceramic series. Their subtle humor and wonderful craft create a sense of jamais vu that is hard to resist.

Stop by
the Runny Bunny shop to see more of her creatures.



Selling snack-sized original art wrapped in cellophane was a project started by Clark Whittington for a solo art show in 1997 and is still going strong with over 400 artists contributing from around the world. Repurposed cigarette vending machines dispense original art for around five-bucks! Art-o-mat machines can be found in museums, galleries, cafes and various shops. The machines themselves are incredible pieces. Check out their website to see more. Planning a trip? Be sure to check if there will be an art-o-mat machine in the area - each one's different and worth searching for.

feed the dog

ERRRGGGHHH!!! You know me, I love monsters! These quirky pillows are from Feed the Dog. Children's drawings interpreted into limited edition hand printed, stitched and appliqued pillows. Lots of fun. The inverted spikes on the dino tail with the short stick figure arms are excellent! Added bonus: you can't help but make sound affects when you see them.

Visit Feed the Dog's shop on etsy to see more.


jello cityscapes

Stumbled upon Liz Hickok's jello cityscapes a few months back @ an open studio night in the mission district of San Francisco. Wandering the studios, I saw these curious candy colors peeking out from under a tarp - I HAD to find out! The artist wasn't there. I wanted to be respectful, but I HAD to see. Gently peeked under a corner: It looked like a miniature of San Francisco made out of...hmmm, I'm not quiet sure what - wait, is that's aged jello?!? Yes. Yes, indeed it was made of jello. Absolutely mesmerized, I could NOT be pulled away. Soon someone came - not the artist, but a friend and I was given permission to peek (phew, I felt better). Wow.

Her photos are amazing with the vivid glow of colors. And I love how the sweating buildings begin to crystallize and jiggle, but I'm glad my first experience was peeking from under a tarp and seeing this magnificent techno-jello color city emerge from the darkness.

Click here to visit Liz Hickok's website.



HEL LOOKS is a street fashion photo project from Helsinki, Finland that started in 2005. (Out of respect to the individuals, HEL LOOKS asks that the photos not be republished - that's why you don't see any images with this post.) Flipping through the individual photos and reading their comments on style is so much fun. And the wonderful combinations of textures and colors! Go take a peek - you’ll find yourself hooked.

Sana Ndiaye: Senegalese Akonting

In August, we stumbled upon the American Folk Music Festival in Bangor, Maine. One of the highlight of the festival was Sana Ndiaye who played the Sengalese akonting. During the festival, Ndiaye was joined by percussionist Backa Niang on the djembe - both were amazing! We saw them perform several times because we were so mesmerized. At times, the percussions and the akonting reversed roles, where the akonting carried the rhythm and percussions floated above.

Believed to be the West African ancestor of the banjo, a gourd bodied lute, the akonting has three strings. Two longer melody strings and one shorter drone string - akin to the short fifth string on the banjo. The music of the akonting is composed of short sustained notes that are played over and over again.

Unfortunately CDs aren't currently available of these traditional songs but keep your ears open - expect more to come from these performer. Both are members of the African hip-hop group Gokh-Bi System, which combines traditional musicians and instruments with hip-hop.

To hear more of Sana Ndiaye playing the akonting, click here and here.

Diem Chau

I LOVE how Diem Chau uses ordinary, everyday objects in such an elegant & quirky way.
Her narratives are so beautifully crafted. Each piece leaves me with a sense of awe. And always a smile.

(Crayon commissions are available upon request.)

As a long time admirer, I am excited to see Diem gaining more and more attention in the media and on the web. This month she is on the cover of Fiber Arts magazine! Currently exhibiting @ the Pulliam Deffenbaugh Gallery in Portland, Oregon through Sept. 27th.

I contacted Diem last week to see if/and when she might be exhibiting in the San Francisco bay area. And much to my delight, she will be in a two-person show @ the Mark Wolfe Contemporary Nov. 4th through Dec. 24th. So, if you’re in the bay area - mark your calendars for the chance to see these really wonderful pieces in person. (Don’t worry I’ll remind you – because I’m REALLY excited!)

To see more visit Diem Chau's website.
