{Music Monday} Love Love Love…paper animation


I discovered the New Zealand band, Avalanche City, because of my love of (paper) stop motion animation. I’m quite taken with this video- but it’s a catchy tune too. Another discovery from this band is Hunter & Gatherer who did  artwork for the band’s album, Our New Life Above the Ground– check out their cool Etsy Shop here. Art & music…. a lovely way to start the week. Happy Music Monday

{Mid-week Inspiration} Rob Ryan…

Handmade Portraits: Rob Ryan from Etsy on Vimeo.

I’ve been a fan of Rob Ryan’s since I gave Chris the book,  This is For You  a few Valentine’s Days ago – I just saw this great video about him this morning on the Etsy Blog & thought I would pass it on. After I watched it, I cruised through Rob’s  shop, where I saw the, “Our Adventures in Wallpaper Collaboration with Mini Moderns“! Lovely – I’m a fan of Mini Moderns as well so I was thrilled to see this. I recently saw a great post about Mini Moderns on Bright Bazaar too that you might want to check out. Nothing like a great collaboration between some amazing artists/designers to help get you through Wednesday. Hope you are having a great week!

{Everyday Inspiration} Paper attire for a dream date…

Ever since Cardboard Man’s existence, I’ve been dreaming about what sort of outfit I could wear for a night out on the town with him. When I saw the work of Jum Nakao {via here}, my question was answered…

Incredible! Isn’t the end nuts- can you imagine? Ah, the drama… 
Now the only thing left to wonder about is where should I take Cardboard Man in our paper attire (& would the end of our date be similar)? Hmmm…. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

{Everyday Inspiration} more paper love…

Here is a little inspiration for your Wednesday. I just ran across the work of paper artist, Mandy Smith via Roadside Projects & I was immediately smitten. Not to mention the book her work is included in, Paper Craft 2 looks incredible!  Given that I’m married to “cardboard man” who makes art often dealing with interior & exterior spaces, I felt the need to share this.

Isn’t her work amazing! I just love this paper animation. Awesome!  (Chris this is for you) Hope everyone is having a great week!

{Everyday Inspiration} Papercraft Part II- video …

Remember that cool book I posted about yesterday called Papercraft? Well, I looked through it some more last night and loved every minute of it. The little jewel at the end of the book is a DVD of some video spots made by a few of the artists or design groups included in the book. I was able to find them on youtube so I can share them with you. 

Do you have a favorite? While I certainly enjoy all of them, I have the Audi commercial sort of stuck in my head. Cardboard & Woody Guthrie is a pretty winning combination (not a shabby car either).
