I love pastels.
I used to hate them.
When i was a kid.

Her style is pretty amazing, isn't it?
Art by Amanda Blake.
This is her blog.

I think the faces of the people she paints are very special,
they seem young, old, tired and intellectual.
Or something.

Of course, you already know Ana Laura Perez!
I love every single drawing of hers.
Also check her out here.

Ana is multitalented.
LOVE her drawings (i own one!), her patterns, bags and jewelry.
She designed the textiles for these clothes from Pesqueira.

This shop is actually amazing.
The site also is, go visit!





I found this pretty drawing via Unicornology.
Drawn by Katarina Sopčić,
who is a photographer.


That last photograph,
reminds me of some work from Lina Scheynius.
It was new to me (when i saved them...)
so maybe it's new for you too.
Oh, i found them at Luyi's, of course.


I want to be in this hidden room,
for the coming few days...

so i can write my loved ones
little messages.

make my head clear.

(Can someone help me out with those last two photographs?
I want to give credits!)

Great post, i adore the photos by Katarina Sopcic...
I did some kind of version of that tag you gave me! Check it out, hope you like it even though i didn't quite follow the rules entirely. :)
Oh my god i love those clothes with the animal prints on them, in your last post! Too bad you can't really make prints like that yourself, at home. I just have to hope something similar turns up in the shops before summer!

these pictures make me want to curl up in some sunny blankets. Thank you for sharing all these wonderful artists. I'll be sure to check them out. The last picture reminds me of a project I did where I wrote a letter to my cousin every day during the summer. Sadly I gave that up.
