So here's some stuff I've been wanting to share :)
1. Burberry's new Spring collection. I love these colors and the fun take on trench coats plus jewel tones my favorite! see the rest here

Which brings me to number 3, the artist KAWS, I saw this profile on him a few years ago. He started as a grafitti artist, painting over existing ads. Then he started to experiment with pop culture, Mickey Mouse and Sponge Bob. I got to see his stuff a few months ago, and the way he paints, it just jumps off the canvas. Yes there's nothing new about borrowing from pop culture, but he is definitely putting his own spin on it, and I love it!
We got a temporary installation at theModern and I saw it last weekend. It looks like it was made for the building, if you ask me.

5. Frankenweenie! I can't believe October is finally here. I am a huge Tim Burton fan. He made the original version of Frankenweenie some 20 years ago. A live action black and white short, Disney shelved it at the time thinking it was too dark, and now years later, here comes the claymation version. I know it seems kind of morbid bringing a beloved pet back to life, and yes Tim is kind of morbid but he was a wonderful way of blending the weirdness with heart and I love him for that. On a side note Tim Burton was inspired byEdward Gorey.
