The Plant Journal: Vol. 1

March 13th, 2012 | plants, photography, print, design | 2 Comments »

So I finally ordered The Plant Journal: Vol. 1, and got it in the mail a week or so ago from the great folks at Lucky’s in Vancouver.  I waited another week to open it so that I could document it when I did.  I’ve got to savor print like this, you know? It’s taken me several weeks more to post it up here on The Look See.  I know it’s probably the most overly documented plant periodical in the past decade, but can you blame me? I mean, it combines three of my greatest joys in life: plants, design, and literature.

Now I need Vol. 2 which is out now.

Sidenote: I’m convinced that I have a Staghorn-shaped void in my life.  Time to expand my horticultural horizons.

Another sidenote: this is also where I found Mr. Eichhorn’s beautiful collage work.

We need to make books cool again. If you go home with somebody and they don’t have books, don’t fuck them.

Pacific Standard Time: Art in LA 1945-1980

Perhaps you’ve already heard about Pacific Standard Time, especially if you’re a Southern California resident.  If not, check out their site and start planning what events and exhibitions you want to go to!

“Pacific Standard Time is an unprecedented collaboration of cultural institutions across Southern California coming together to celebrate the birth of the L.A. art scene. Beginning October 2011, over 60 cultural institutions will make their contributions to this region-wide initiative encompassing every major L.A. art movement from 1945 to 1980.”

I’m super excited about these upcoming shows and events in and around LA. I suppose I should also mention that my jewelry line is going to be featured in the Orange County Museum of Art’s shop in conjunction with their Two Schools of Cool exhibit and State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970, which is their contribution to Pacific Standard Time. I’m currently working on a batch of one-of-a-kind pieces for them, mainly with vintage materials.

Found Eric’s work here, and spent quite a while perusing his awesome Flickr set. Check it out.
By the way, according to this photo he will draw you your own tee shirt for $75 which is expensive for a tee, but inexpensive for original artwork.

Nothing is New Workshop

So many cool things in the Nothing is New Workshop!  Love this woven piece by Alex Segreti (Weird Friends) and Kelly Rakowski (Nothing is New).  I also really love this idea for a way to cover up a flowerpot that may be less than pretty…
