“My lucky ellie painting is on a huge sign in front of the Pier 1 Manhattan store! I wish I could see it in person! I also have a line of gift cards with them right now!”
I want to show you this poster I did for a film festival called “From Eyes of Women” in Chengdu, China.
My animation short “Small & deep, Love stories” was screened there. I had the chance to visit there and was so thrilled to see my drawing on the billboard. This festival is hosted by A4 contemporary arts center.
It was a very nice art gallery with great exhibitions.:) ”
“Lettering. Poetry. Inspiration. For no other reason!
Earlier this year I saw Color Moves: Art & Fashion by Sonia Delaunay at the Cooper Hewitt where I picked up a copy of “Blaise Cendrars Complete Poems.” He and Sonia were friends and she created the abstract for his “The Prose of the Trans-Siberian,” included in the exhibit. It was a fold-out sheet six and a half feet tall, with multiple typefaces in color on the right and the as-yet unknown Sonia’s pochoir abstraction on the left. Cendrars famously constructed myths of his biographical details. His given name wasn’t Blaise Cendrars. It is true that he joins the French Foreign Legion (World War I) and survives attacks in May 1914 where 100,000 are lost in a month. A year later he loses his arm in another battle. After the war, he collaborates variously with Jean Cocteau, Guillame Apollinaire, Erik Satie, and Abel Gance (film), and writes a novel about General Sutter (“Sutter’s Gold”) in 1925. His poetry is fresh and inventive and worth exploring.”
From Paper Pile Kitten Blog:
“If you have an iPhone or an iPad, Prima has fun app that is free to download. You can choose a pretty layout and add a photo, which you can distress or turn to b/w or sepia toned if you’d like. Then you can post it to Facebook and Twitter or just e-mail it to a friend. I’ve already downloaded it and tried it out. So much fun! More on Prima’s blog.”
