artist series


Race is not black and white — and this artist’s striking portrait series is proof 

Born to parents from the West Indian island of Nevis, Canadian artist Stacey Tyrell grew up calling herself black. But her family’s heritage is also a mix of Irish, Scottish and English — identities others often overlooked because of her skin color.

Now, she has created a fantastic photo project, “Backra Bluid,” that delves into the quagmire of racial identity through a series of portraits in which Tyrell poses as white women — ostensibly representative of her ancestors — to dismantle rigid concepts of both “whiteness” and “blackness.”


Tales of Alethrion is now released on Sun Creature Studio´s Channel! Check it out and be sure to share or support the new Kikcstarter for the rest of this epic animated series!

Hope you enjoy it! Thanks for waiting, watching and being awesome here on tumblr the whole way through!

Want to creep on our work space? We are proudly featured on Design Sponge’s Sneak Peeks this week and would love to invite you into the studio. See what else we love to do at home after the jump!


Here’s something new - I have not seen one of these before.  Troy Van Leeuwen Jazzmaster® in “Oxblood” with matching headstock.  The colour doesn’t come through very well in these photos but I assure you it’s lovely…and so different!  It’s MIM, and for roughly 800 clams Canadian  (if I remember correctly…) you can take it home.
