Food Paintings by Luigi Benedicenti

Beautiful photographs, aren't they? That's what I thought, too, at first glance, but they're actually photo-real paintings by artist, Luigi Benedicenti. I'm so blown away at how detailed these paintings are. That Luigi must be one patient man because this is some tedious work! via Source.

Looking into the Past by Jason Powell

I was a 13-year-old high school freshman when I saw the first plane crash on the news. I don't think I understood the magnitude of the situation until I saw everything unfold in my first period class. It was then that I learned it was an attack on our country, and not just an unfortunate accident. I remember calling my brother that day since he lived in New York at the time. I was so relieved to know that he was safe from the falling debris. via Source.

Ulyana Sergeenko

I came across this lookbook today and I knew I had to know more. Turns out that Ulyana Sergeenko is both the photographer and designer responsible for this beautiful lookbook. She's a Russian photographer and this is actually her debut collection for F/W 2011. I've got three words to say about her new venture. I love it! Not only is she talented, she also has great personal style. via Source.

Giant Clothespin by Turkish Artist, Mehmet Ali Uysal

How cool is this enormous sculpture? Turkist artist, Mehmet Ali Uysal, created this installation piece for the Festival of Five Seasons, an art festival which features massive outdoor installations in Liège, Belgium. What's really incredible is that this 20 foot tall clothespin is fully operational. via Source.

Brush Hooks

As part of an "Object Abuse" exhibition, British designer Dominic Wilcox has created a series of paint brushes whose bristles have been purposely hardened and curved upwards to create wall-mounted hooks. The exhibition challenge was to "take an everyday object, remould, rebuild and repurpose it to create an entirely new item, using as little additional materials as possible." via Source.

La Garçonne Moderne

La Garçonne's in-house brand, La Garçonne Moderne, is hitting all my marks for Fall/Winter 2011. They have exactly what I'm looking for, which are classic blouses and thick knit sweaters and cardigans. These pieces definitely cost more than what I'd like to pay for, so I'll be on the hunt for something similar that hopefully won't compromise quality. via La Garçonne.

Good Intent by Kimbra

Illustrated Plant Alphabet by Sasha Prood

This plant kingdom inspired alphabet is by American artist, Sasha Prood. She currently resides in Brooklyn, New York, where she continues her artwork in typography, illustrations, and graphics. Her hand-drawn alphabet can be found here or as a non-keyable font here for purchase. Are you as tempted as I am to buy it? I'm thinking this print would look great in a bathroom or bedroom.

The Art of Clean Up

In the appropriately titled book, "The Art of Clean Up," Swiss artist, comedian, and author, Ursus Wehrli, takes the mundane objects we encounter in everyday life and organizes them in neatly displayed scenarios and situations. Now, if only I could do this to my closet. via Source.
