We came across a collection of short films by Anne-Sophie Rosenvinge Skov, and found her work quite influential. She consistently combines tinkering sounds and words to compliment her textural visuals. The tantalizing combination of the two resonate in our minds and ears. Here are some of our favorites from her collection, enjoy!

Liliane Lijn, a London based artist, has been involved and making art since the 1960′s and continues to produce and participate in the art world today. Looking through her body of work is quite inspiring, by having the ability to see her growth and development as an artist. She has explored a range of materials to use, and continues to experiment with new mediums. Her inspiration is often times derived from science, philosophies from the oriental and western views, and images of mythology. Liliane works in the three-dimensional world, consistently creating sculptures that study line, light and movement. Each piece is highly interactive with the viewer and the space around it. Her most recent works include typography, and recording the transitioning and movement of text. We love how engaging her kinetic pieces are, that seemingly lure and hypnotize us. It’s always intriguing to see how different artists interpret similar elements. Lilian’s implied and actual movement is so crisp and individual. Her works leave a stimulating, lasting memory. If we had to pick a favorite, it would definitely be her series including texts, that whirl and glisten and slowly become in focus. We’ll provide some videos so her work can be seen in action.
If you’re in the New York area, be sure to check out the MoMA to see her exhibit that opens May 6th and closes August 27th. I’m definitely going to try and make it up to see it!

Illustrations done by Frances Stanfield are totally rocking our world right now. Although the young illustrator specializes in a variety of areas for her work, it is obvious she is a fashion illustration aficionado. Stanfield’s illustrations are incomparable to any other fashion illustrator we have seen. She has a vastly stylized approach. Stanfield’s pseudo-primitive style is so energizing to view and bring a true uniqueness to the fashion world. Her easy-going lines create perfect contrasting compliments in all of her pieces. The simple outlines on the figures coupled with the gestural and abrupt lines in the figure’s hair and garments are exactly what we are talking about. But of course it doesn’t stop there, as she strategically dabs paint on to complete the figure. We could talk all day about how cool and artful we think Frances Stanfield’s work is, but it’s time to let the work speak for itself and see what we’ve been raving about!
Visit her website here to see her range of illustrations and be sure to follow her blog to stay up to date with her work
Her mock magazine covers that we are yearning for prints of.
Just a few examples of her stellar fashion illustrations.
Is your world now rocked? We hope so! Happy viewing, get inspired!

Happy Thursday! Today we want to feature the work of another amazing food photographer: Charlotte Tolhurst. Charlotte is from North London. Charlotte’s passion for food began 5 years ago when she was living in Australia. Now, it’s somewhat consumed her (in the best way possible, and pun intended).
Also, Charlotte started doing recipe videos which are nearly as beautiful as her photography. You may have seen some of her work before as she’s shot for major companies such as Coca Cola, Kenwood, Field & Flower, and many more. So, what we’re saying is that she’s pretty legitimate and fabulously talented. Enjoy her work here.

Oh my goodness. This makes us so happy. This video by WestfieldStratford, featuring 100 years of East London style in 100 seconds is absolutely wonderful. Excuse us while we go put on some vintage clothes and do the charleston and disco with a handsome man.
