BALLPOINT PEN ARTISTRY

achrisherreraI am a HUGE art buff (as if you couldn’t tell *laughs*). I’m not one of those people where I love abstract more than realism paintings. I’m the type of person that falls in love with whatever I see. I can walk around the city and instantly find something that grabs me… and it doesn’t necessarily have to be in an art gallery for me to love it.

For instance, last month I was searching the internet and found amazing artist Chris Herrera’s work. It blew my mind and I knew it was time to showcase it here.

DANCE & THE CITY

pastankoOne of the things I love about blogging is that I get to share things that inspire me, in hopes to inspire others. While doing so, I begin to discover things about myself that I didn’t previously know. For instance, I never thought I would love ballet until I posted a project by a photographer with ballet dancers as his subject. From that moment on, ballet became a romantic fantasy I enjoy.

The more I got into it, the more I begin to love photographers that combined the romantic feeling of ballet with the grittiness of the city. And today I have the pleasure of posting the work of Ukrainian Photographer Andrey Stanko. Back in June of 2014, Andrey published these amazing photos of Angelica & Alexander P., dancers of the Odessa National Ballet in Ukraine.

diycorkartValentine’s Day, to me, is a marketers dream. They would like you to believe that you have to buy something expensive in order to show how much you love someone. Of course I love receiving expensive gifts (who wouldn’t *laughs*), but that isn’t the only way to show how much someone means to you.

So if you’re looking for a V-Day gift to make for your significant other, then you should definitely try this DIY wine cork project. I’m sure you’ve already seen this on the internet, but this DIY is not limited to just making a heart. And if you happen to have a bunch of corks lying around (not saying you like to drink or anything *laughs*), why not put them to good use. Continue >
