Ran across the beautiful nature photography of Alan MacKenzie and am especially intrigued by these clusters of birds in flight back-lit by sunsets. The birds take an almost sinister look in their bat-like blackness, and in the terrifying number.

Perhaps a nice direction for Swimwear?

The Rodina at Tunica Gallery

While waiting patiently for files to upload via wetransfer, this visually intense print appeared linked to Tunica Gallery. I had to know more. Created by Netherlands based studio, The Rodina, this artwork channels surrealism and so much more in a “vampire supermodernism graphic design” way. Or, at least that’s how the studio describes itself. This is just one of the many mind blowing exhibits shown at Tunica Gallery in New York. Other art shows have included the work of au courant creatives like Claire Duport, Charlie Engman, and Jordy van den Nieuwendijk. Floating salami slices? Yes, please. Speckled blobs in space? Show me more. View the full line up here.

Just loving these cup and saucers sets by Japanese designer D-Bros. The geometric patterns are on the saucers while the cups are reflective and pick up the pattern when put down. Just another clever way that pattern can be used in our lives!

Structure & Object | Kristine Mandsberg

You might recognize the work of textile designer, Kristine Mandsberg, whose designs have appeared on products for Ikea. But, it’s her personal designs that really get us excited! Her most recent patterns just appeared at CIFF kids trade fair in Copenhagen earlier this week as a collection of soft sculptures (see below). Mixing hand drawn forms with graphic shapes, Kristine creates illustrative prints that show “her abstract perception of her surroundings.” A graduate of The Royal College of Art, Kristine can now be found living and working in Denmark as a full-time designer.

Each piece created by textile designer Anna Joyce is handmade and hand-printed in Portland, Oregon. And it may be that attention to detail that makes her creations so unique and adorable! These ikat patterned pillows are a perfect way to add a little pattern pop to any room in the house, and each one is painted to order so they’re all one-of-a-kind. The artist also makes scarves and totes that are definitely must-haves!
