“I like to focus on the small nitty gritty details of people’s everyday existences; from passing gossip and menial everyday tasks to unkempt hair and chocolate wrappers that have missed the bin. I gather them all up in my head like a giant scrapbook, and bring them into my work, conserving them in some sort of form before they are past recollection.”—Sanna Dyker

OMG! It’s Uglycorn!

Uglycorn OMG! Its Uglycorn! products design
There are ugly dolls and then there are ugly dolls! I am loving the new uglycorn, available at Giant Robot and Toy Tokyo

“Uglycorns are a super rare breed. They mostly show up when you’re just about to fall asleep and your ice cream is just about to hit the floor. Or you know how you wake up and think you’re seeing something but really it’s just a jacket on a chair or something like that? Yeah, don’t you hate that?”—Uglydolls.com

A Vampire Café & More!
By August 2, 2010

vampire34 A Vampire Café & More! travel
For vampire lovers and creative types, you’ll find oodles of inspiration in the land of love hotels and maid cafés, among Japan’s many fantasy themed establishments. When I lived in Japan, one of my favorite places to go was the Christon Café, a lounge filled with decorative relics and church paraphernalia purchased from various churches around the globe. Everything in there was a feast for the eyes! Well, looks like there are a plethora of new places that have popped up around Tokyo recently with equally imaginative themes, like the Vampire Café pictured above. For the scoop on more themed restaurants check out the guardian.co.uk

Caroline Wright is a painter, a cellist, and a yoga instructor who creates dreamy paintings.

“In art, as in life, I am interested in slowing down. Finding vitality in stillness, calm in tumult. Colors unwind at a specific tempo, and the work reveals itself when the viewer walks around inside at a leisurely pace.”—Caroline Wright

Michael Aldana
By July 23, 2010

Michael Aldana 1 Michael Aldana art
Michael Aldana works in acrylic and gouache to create his large-scale, abstract compositions.

“Recently my art works have been attempts to grapple with the issue of coastal erosion in South Louisiana. Louisiana is losing land at a rate of a football field every 35 minutes. This is primarily due to the erosion happening along the coast as oil and gas companies have dug canals in their exploration of this oil rich region. The salt water moves in the man made canals and destroys the wetlands further inland, causing vegetation to die, and in turn, causing the land to erode. Before Katrina, I hadn’t thought much about the prospects of losing the land and the culture with which I grew up. After being a part of Katrina and her aftermath, I see just how serious the issue is, and my work since has been aimed at bringing Louisiana’s plight to light.” —Michael Aldana
