It's all about you...

Hello Lovelies!

I want to start off with a small piece of business, I have been Indie Spotted again! Looks like Hookah made the cut which was very nice.



And now I'm dedicating the rest of this post to other artists whose work I think deserves a little attention. I've mentioned before that I'm part of the Cabinet of Curiosities team on Etsy chock- full of artisans who create some pretty unique things from soap to jewelry to artwork all with a little bit of a dark side. Many don't know about this team so Covetables #2 displays only Cabinet items so you can get a little taste of the darkness...

I was wandering around the Internet today doing a little research on albinism for a possible project and I stumbled across a man after my own heart. Matt Hoyle is a photographer whose collection entitled Barnumville features real sideshow performers who still perform at the few remaining venues in the U.S. all beautifully photographed in black and white. Go take a peek under the tent folks...

And I discovered another little gem of a website called Letter Pressed, I'm sure some of you have seen it. But there's an off-shoot with limited edition letter pressed art that is wonderful. Here are some samples:

   

Okay, enough playing around, off to do some new work. 

Until next time: unpleasant dreams...
