sketchbook inspiration

I'm not sure what I want to work on next, so I've been tearing out pages in magazines and catalogs and filling my sketchbook with quick collages and doing a corresponding line drawing then adding a bit of watercolor.  It's a nice exercise just to get my creativity flowing while I decide what to create next.  Do you have any methods or exercises you do when you're stuck creatively?

Spring is here!

After much back and forth between temperatures I feel like spring is officially in full bloom. Loving these 70's temperatures and all of the beautiful colors everywhere. The pollen is another story... (and I am officially in love with my iphone, though I still refuse to text.)

miu miu red desert

Blogger is not cooperating with me this morning, but I'll get over it. I was this first shot for Miu Miu's SS13 collection in a magazine recently and I felt it was very french new wave. The more I looked at it the more it reminded me of Michaelangelo Antonioni's film Red Desert. One of my all-time faves. I decided to look up the rest of the ad campaign and it has to be the inspiration for this shoot. There are so many perfect details captured, from the color of the drapes, to the exact pose of her lounging on the bed, to the iconic red room. I've had this movie on my amazon wish list for awhile now and I think I might just have to buy it.

welcome to the 21st century

After 7 1/2 years with my lovely durable LG phone, I begrudgingly decided to take the leap into the 21st century and get an iphone 4.  At least since I waited this long it was only $1.  I have admit I am loving having a camera on me at all times.  I was going through a little photography rut lately and now I think this combined with the changing weather is inspiring me a bit.  So now I am on instagram.  You can follow me here.  Don't be shy, I love seeing everyone's feeds.  There's such a huge range of photo taking on there.  I love it.
