the works art and design festival

need refs/inspo for period clothing?

here you go:

lots of periods in one spot/fashion through centuries:

it indeed is western/european centric, I’m sorry for that, but for other cultures I simply don’t have so many references

ALSO note that most of the pictures show historical clothing from the upper classes or more festive clothing of the lower/working class because normal working clothes wouldn’t survive for such a long time, and the clothes were often re-used over and over again!

The artist who made the Obama ‘Hope’ poster brings the resistance to a printer near you

  • Shepard Fairey was behind the famous “Hope” poster from President Obama’s first presidential campaign.
  • For Trump’s inauguration, Fairey has designed a new set of posters just in time for the festivities (above)
  • He also worked with a foundation to raise more than $1 million on Kickstarter to print and distribute the posters, so you can count on seeing them everywhere on Inauguration Day — for free. Read more

Okaaaaay guys, this a bit off-topic, but I just wanted to share with you that we won with two of our projects on the Art of Freedom competition of the SZIGET Festival 2017!!!! If you are from Europe, you might have heard of SZIGET before, it’s  one of the largest music and cultural festivals in Europe and is held in Budapest (Hungary) in every August. The festival always has a competition where you have to plan then - if you win - build an installation. In a group of 10 we worked really hard and designed 4 installation, from which 2 have passed all the rounds - which means if you come to SZIGET this year, you will be able to see our creations!

You can see one of our projects on the picture (which I have drawn), called CandyLand, which is a kind of chill-zone amongst giant donuts and lollipops.

Our other winner project is called Chillcatchers, which are giant dreamcatchers hanging down from the trees - all colourful and lighting in the dark.

So I’m really excited about them, but I’m also sure we will have a hell of a work to build these intallations, but I can’t wait!! Gonna be a busy summer!

Sorry for being annoyingly excited, Trill is out!

Arolo No. 11

Arolos are sweet, sleepy little friends who love to keep you company at your desk, bookshelf, or anywhere else hey can catch a quick nap. They’re great listeners, and always happy to encourage you when you’re hard at work. Not looking for a desk buddy? Your Arolo will be just as happy reading over your shoulder or sharing a nice cup of tea, but watch that she doesn’t steal any cookies off your plate!

This doll is not for sale, as she’ll be available at the New York Faerie Festival next month. Any dolls that don’t sell will be available on Etsy after the event!

“CATIRA”

by Bicicleta Sem Freio

A dance of Brazilian folklore, the beat of The Catira is marked by the beat of the feet and hands of the dancers. Typically a dance of the interior of Brazil it is  performed mostly by ranchers and farmers. For the inaugural 2015 The Unexpected mural festival Bicicleta Sem Freio brought a bright splash of their native Brazil to Garrison Street in downtown Fort Smith, Arkansas. Translating to English as “Bicycles Without Brakes” Bicicleta Sem Freio is as apt a description as any of the two designer / illustrators who met at university and “just wanted to have fun, create, draw and animate whatever came into their minds.” They admit that art, design, and rock ‘n’ roll—and drawings of lots of girls—sounds cliché, but say it’s simplest and most honest way to describe them and the results work well enough to have takend the two around the world, sometimes to the most ‘Unexpected’ places. @bicicletasemfreio  @unexpectedfs 

Staff continuously omitting popular skin submissions

It just looks way more deliberate than not.

As professional artists, I don’t believe they can’t tell apart good and, well, not so good. 

Not sure how reasonable this sounds, but here are my 2 cents: 

The most popular skins in each contest probably would bring much more profit to both FR and the author of the skin. Many of them involve a lot more work than average, too. 

Taking that into consideration, maybe it just doesn’t look so good if the staff just snatch the design, make it official, and print thousands of copies for a mere 1500g. It could also severely slow down the UM skin market, if the most desired skins are regularly made available at 30kT. 

P.S.: Umm, do we not have a skin/accent tag? 

I’m so incredibly excited for the Lincoln steampunk festival this year. My fanbot costume and design has improved a lot since then so I’m really excited to show her off haha. Also I’m hoping to have my Walter Worker costume finished too…maybe haha. But I’m just super excited to see @officialsteampoweredgiraffe again because they were all so incredibly nice to me and meeting them definitely encouraged me to continue working on my costumes and my art :3

Hey guys! I’ve already talked about it a few times, but now that my very first in-person event as a vendor is exactly a month away it’s probably time for an official announcement!

My Arm Can Fly will be an exhibiting artist at the first weekend of this year’s New York Faerie Festival! That’s June 23-25th, 11-7 each day! 

I’ll have 15 finished dolls (3 Flox, 3 Dream Snakes, and 9 Arolos), about 100 Flox face magnets, and 20 different postcard print designs available. I would love to meet you guys if you can make it! Located in upstate New York, Faerie Fest has a very whimsical, renaissance-festival-light feel to it, filled with music, gorgeous creative works, a joust, and all manner of playful costuming. I’ll also be taking commissions with a special show discount on the deposit, and making some felting magic of my own on-site. 

Meet me and the colorful creatures I share here! Meet the Queen of Faerie! Meet my scruffy little dog!  It’s going to be a wonderful weekend, and I strongly encourage anyone who can to make the trip. The event is kid friendly and pet friendly, although my work is generally too fragile for either.

Find out more about the event itself here!

Illustrating the Festival Hall mid-century style

These fantastic illustrations come from a 1951 book recording the design and building of the Festival Hall on the South Bank in London. Talk about mid-century modern!

Five illustrators are credited with work on the book - designed overall by the remarkable F H K Henrion. These images, with their slightly comical figures, look most like the work of Gordon Cullen though.

Royal Festival Hall published by Max Parrish for the London County Council.
