Photography by Florian Bong-Kil Grosse
I haven’t been able to find out a lot about Quentin Szuwarski, (aka Z.U.S), but I do know he’s got an intriguing Flickr photo stream. The sketches are pulled straight from scans of his sketchbook and I hope you find them as inspiring as I did. Who said a sketch needs to be completely refined?
I’m realizing that I’ve got quite the fondness for pottery…unpolished pottery with organic shapes and patterns. I realized that whenever I head to the thrift stores/antique malls, it’s usually pottery that I carry around to the very end until I decide I shouldn’t spend the money. I think 2013 will be the year where I start to official collect some beautiful pieces and the pieces above are stealing my heart.
Do you have a “thing” for anything in particular? Jewelry? Books?…?
The booked called Artist and Her Model has been really inspiring. The book was photographed by Finish photographer Elina Brotherus. I love how the book is a “meditative journey, a diary and a reflection” of the artist herself.
“The work gathered in the book documents the time wrap from 1996 to 2011. The story is told not in time, but rather in fragments. She works in self-portiture, sometimes bringing people who have special place in her life. Elina’s photographs depict relationship with people, love, disappointments, search, pain and how they shift/change over the years. While the images are constructed, she is completely present in every moment, living/experiencing her life. ”
I don’t really have a lot to say about this show stopping outfit/design combo except for wow…I really need this outfit and boy am I inspired. (Featured in U+Mag)

Hey guys. I hope everyone is done with their Christmas shopping and has starting their wrapping. This year I’m mixing things up a bit and using the NEW Frankie Magazine Gift Paper Book. Thanks to the lovely ladies over at Frankie, I was lucky enough to receive the book to have a little fun.
The book is filled with 50′s inspired colorful gift wrap papers (10 sheets) that you can tear out and use as you wish. I chose to use the paper in 3 different ways – paper cranes, wrapping presents, and confetti. I had a lot of fun with the book and I can’t wait for the release so all of you can test it out.
*Thanks Frankie Magazine for thinking of The Veda House to have some fun with your latest product.
