Travel Cake

When you grow older, its getting more and more complicated to find gifts for family members birthdays because its indeed not that "cute" anymore to just draw a picture...Having that in mind, I decided to prepare a cake for my godmothers birthday and wanted something sweet but refreshing, but also something that is easy to take on the plane too! Quite a situation, so I felt really relieved when I found the right thing to bake: A white chocolate brownie with a green-tea-cheesecake swirl! YUM!

Little Miss Giggles

Little Miss Giggles has always been my favourite of the Little Miss-/ Mr. Men-books. And maybe so it comes, that Miss Giggles nowadays is one of my favourite pinup-photographers, because she always manages to make the girls look so beautifully natural, no matter how complicated the poses seem to be!
Enjoy the galleries on the page and- why dont you book your slot right away? haha:)

The Bazaarium

Even though we moved already 3 months ago, some walls in our appartment are still naked like a newlyborn. Due to this fact, I am always on the lookout for nicey prints. Today, I found Wilhelm Staehles portfolio, who is working with handcut silhouettes and scenes which could be taken from childrens books, offering them framed for 30$ - quite a good deal!

Lucky Lola

Friday is payday, so I decided to spoil myself and spend my leftovers on pretty dresses :D Best way to do this, is visiting my friends onlineshop "Lucky Lola". She's not only running the shop, but also modeling the clothes herself. Good thing to have a talented husband like Sergio Stiletto who is able to takes the pictures and a close friend like Pinky Paradise who is makeup artist and hairstylist! Oh, almost forgot to mention the last personality of the fantastic four: Miss Giggles! She did most of the advertisingshoots for Luckylola! Enjoy the behind-the scenes video:)

Summertime? POPSICLE TIME!!

Finally no need to justify popsicle indulgence anymore! To be honest, I can eat icecream all year long, but homemade, fruity popsicles really are a summer-treat to me! And for making this experience happen for you too, I prepared some links:

Everlasting Breath

For to compensate yesterdays "sexytime" we'll get a little philosophical today. While browsing the fuckyeahtattoos-blog, I learned about Jayne Wiltons art. She developed a way to catch peoples breath on copperplates and paper! Isnt that beautiful in so many ways? I think I want one of each family member - If only I could afford it!

X-ray Naughtyness

Haha! Fantastic idea, by german advertising agency Butter / Düsseldorf! They came up with this calendar for to please the (potential) customers of EIZO, which produce medical imaging high precision displays for the examination and diagnosis of radiographs. Pretty sharp!

Chiwauwaus & Pugs in Paletot

We went to the DMY last sunday, not knowing, that this Berlin design festival is focussing on product-design. Well, i cannot really excite myself about wardrobes or stuff, so i was happy to found the little fellas above! Uta Koloczek is a graduated artist who enjoys working with ceramic. Check out her page to find more Chiwauwaus or pugs with golden faces:D hopefully one guy will sit on my sideboard soon!

Stationary of horror

Due to a business trip scheduled for tomorrow and the day after that, I will spoil you with another post today :) Just found a really freaking cool example of stationary for a german horror-channel, called 13th street. Could imagine to put my address and logo on it and scare my grannie with some special snail mail :D

Natural Selection

Another monday, another artist! Marianna Gartner is a canadian artist from Winnipeg (yayyy like the Weakerthans!) using vintage photography as a reference, mixing it with devils and other evil things. I really could imagine having one of her desillusioned sailor guys up my walls! If you currently are residing in Switzerland, jump on the opportunity and visit Gallerie Haas which is hosting Gartners "Natural Selection" show from 9th June- 9th July 2010.

Hoopers Electric

I came across this picture, showing 2 guys having exactly the same tattoos on their bodies, so I had to find out wether its a photoshop thing and if not, who has done the ink-work. Some googling was done and i learned about Thomas Hooper, an english born tattoo artist, working in NY. While checking out his page I fell in awe with his skills: not only is he able to tattoo super-detailed designs, he is a really good painter (studied drawing at London Institute of Art &Design)too!

If you're nosy like me hehehhe, check out his and his tattooshops website!

When I was a kid, I always loved to spent the evenings  sitting by my parents on their chesterfield armchairs and sofa, feeling all cosy. I guess that is why I am so excited about Yvonne Fehling & Jennie Peiz's still-lives in this look! This adorable chesterfield pig family would look so great in our livingroom! ;)

Sneak a Peek of Mark Ryden

Well I am sure we all have heard about Mark Ryden before so I dont want to explain anything about him. The video linked below still caught my attention because its so inspiring to me to watch painters paint. And Mark Ryden is one of the really brave ones: He overpaints already done sections over and over again until he is convinced to have found the right element.

Then, I also want to share a video with you which is taken from a very interesting documentary about the private collection of Long Gone John. A great guy (and owner of a recordlabel & toy-label)!

Watermelon Vodka fun

hehehe, yes, its what you think:  its a vodka infused watermelon! So easy to prepare, so refreshing, so going to make you tipsy!I think, this is THE thing to bring to this summers BBQs.

How to:
3. Cut a hole in your watermelon, big enough to put in a funnel
2. pour as much vodka through the funnel as you can. Then let sit for a few ours (approx. 4hours) in the refridgerator. Redo this until the melon absorbed about 2-3cups of your favourite vodka.
1. Be sure to chill the melon well enough!

Calligraphy Identity

I so want a calligraphy address stamp! Did you know that in China you dont even "exist" before you get your very own stamp? You cannot even sign a bank transfer without it! See, good reason to hitch up with Patricia Mumau and then start writing millions of letters:)

Nomen est Omen - his screenprinted Rockposters are monstrositly great! Unlike in america, there is no such gig-poster-culture in Germany which makes Götz Bockstedtes work even more unique and important: I am sure, he is the redeemer who took up the cudgels for all the poster-illustrators, fighting against the mainstream! hahaha;)
