Mari Urban Renewal- 08.22.07

mariurbn.jpgConfession of the day: i totally google and google blogsearch ‘notcot’ (and tastespotting and notcouture) and get giddy when i find links and mentions to NOTCOT that are adorable, or from sites and people I end up totally hooked on. It is a guilty pleasure that people claim you’ll get bored of, but that’s such a lie. It just gets more exciting ~ especially all of the different languages, and its actually part of how i discover some incredible sites and designers. So today’s find that has me grinning like an idiot?

Mari Santos does magical things with giant tshirts… i found this DIYThing interview with her about her, her life, her inspiration, her Urban OutFitters Urban Renewal Project - “Urban was looking for 20 artist/designers to work on some pieces for their Urban Renewal line, so I submitted some of my designs to them. A couple of days later, I received an email asking me if I’d be interested in working with them–I said yes, of course. I’ll be customizing some sweaters for their Urban Renewal Artist Customized project, and they’ll be sold in select Urban stores sometime during the holidays, so I’m really excited.” (CONGRATS!)

Basically - long story short - she mentions her love of NOTCOT.org in her interview, and then i also noticed she links us on her page as well! All of which i noticed after completely falling for how adorable her Tshirt surgeries are (see her Urban Renewal Entry page)… and i’m so blown away i had to share it with you… more that i love below.

Oh - and who is she? “I’m an artist and an indie designer from Toronto that is inspired by just about everything around me. I get quite happy when I’m able to turn hideous things pretty, and my favourite conversations usually involve my 3 year old sister. I also like naps and raspberry jelly.”

i check for updates here all the time, and one i’ve never seen that i would definitely look forward to finding, is a nifty id case.

i noticed on the notcot video near the end when talking about the face your pockets project, an urbanoutfitters id case was thrown on the scanner.

there have to be more out there!
