Jill Greenberg: Glass Ceiling

glassceiling1.jpg On shows that would be lovely to see in person ~ the master manipulator photographer, Jill Greenberg, has a NY show coming up ~ “Glass Ceiling” at ClampArt starting on June 16th. She “revisits her interest in feminist art for her new series (which was the focus of her senior thesis at the Rhode Island School of Design over twenty years ago). The photographs in this body of work picture female athletes and dancers underwater engaged in a variety of ambiguous and dynamic movements. The women wear colorful bathing suits and high heels in complimentary hues, forcing one to question how and why these models are immersed.” Even in times like today, so much, yet so little has changed. And it’s hard not to be reminded you’re a woman (which of course is a double edged sword… depending on how you wield it!) ~ and these pictures capture a feeling that i’m sure we’ve all come up against…. is she breaking through the glassy water tension? or is she just gasping for air? Take a peek at the stunning series on the next page…

Ferrari’s City of Tomorrow

ferrari.jpg Ferrari parts, tiny abstract people, and architecture - how can you go wrong? Justine has found more window fun on London’s Regent Street. The display in the Ferrari store is my favorite of the Regent Street Windows Project, a collaboration between Regent Street retailers, the Royal Institute of British Architect’s, Elle and Regent Street.

The Ferrari display, “Cities of Tomorrow” showcase Ferrari-inspired urban environments of the future. The window designs are the work of Duggan Morris Architects in collaboration with Ferrari and Pipers. The displays are made of Ferrari memorabilia, original, unique and certified components from past and present of F1 and GT cars, which can be purchased from the Ferrari store. The Cities of Tomorrow windows will be on view at the Ferrari Store on Regent Street until Sunday 29 May 2011. Take a peek at the installations on the next page!

Project Ocean: Windows, Mobiles and Fish Guide

ocean.jpg There’s more than just the Whale Rodeo! As promised, here are more highlights from Selfridges’ Project Ocean. In addition to the commitment to raise awareness and funds for conservation, Selfridges really carry the theme throughout the store, tying things together with their beautiful illustrations of fish by the very talented Sanna Annukka (check out her commercial portfolio here)! And yes, you may recognize that beautiful style from the Marimekko prints we love so much!

Annukka’s illustrations grace the doors and windows of the store, and can be found throughout the store in mobiles and on the walls (you might have spotted a few in our previous post). They are also the images that feature in Selfridges’ fish guide - the print, web, and app versions! Check out the beautiful illustrations in all their many manifestations on the next page!

The Mighty Pencil Vol. 1

mightypencil1.jpg Another london special from Justine! Check out the incredible Mighty Pencil she discovered…

If I could be any sort of artist, I would want to be an illustrator. There’s something just awesome about the medium. Needles to say, when I got back from lunch at the Worship Street Whistling Shop, I was thrilled to find The Mighty Pencil Vol 1 waiting for me and just had to share a sneak peek at it!

The Mighty Pencil is “a somewhat mysterious illustration resource, spreading their words of wisdom” and their first book - truly a fantastic piece of work that brings together so many talented illustrators. Check out a peek inside and some of my favorites on the next page!

ZSO - Sara Blake - Octopus

octo1.jpg Just came across this absolutely stunning octopus print and skateboard design by ZSO (Sara Blake). Apparently it is a “charity piece for a skate deck art show happening in LA for Heal the Bay. I don’t know much about the other artists or even where it’s happening right now, but I was just happy to make a skateboard for something to help wildlife. Orginal drawing is pencil and ink. Board is a digital print on Moab Entrada rag bright with mixed media (acrylic, ink,pencil), and gel medium.” SO beautiful ~ see it fully and in sketch form on the next page!

Carte Blanche 007/Bentley Edition

bentley0070.jpg Spy novels + fun cars + limited edition books = gorgeous book design from 007 and Bentley for the latest James Bond book, Carte Blache. There is a die-cut bullet hole that pierces each book - inside each copy you find a single polished bullet with a distinct number. (I wonder if any other secret information is hidden in or on the bullet!)

As for the design - “The Special Edition is designed by Brett Boydell. In his ten years at Bentley, Brett has been involved in the interior design of the Bentley Azure, Brooklands and, most recently, the Continental Supersports. He also manages the Bentley Branded Goods studio, where all Bentley-associated products are created.” Additionally, the book is in a metal box shaped into outline of the new Continental GT. The look of this sleek abstracted sculpture reminds me a lot of the Infiniti Essence and Mercedes Rising Car sculptures. Take a peek at the sketches and renders of the 007 and Bentley Carte Blanche Special Edition on the next page.
