vena cava inspiration

“Of Beren and Lúthien”

Today is Tolkien Reading Day, so it can’t have been coincidence that on this very day I came across the beautiful fanfic Vena Cava by SilentAuror which inspired the drawing above: John reading the Silmarillion to Sherlock as he’s recovering from his gunshot wound. I look forward to reading more from this author :).

Sophie Calle
Sophie Calle is one of our favorite artists.  For my birthday last year my friend Hailey gave me her book Double Game.  Calle was the inspiration for the character Maria in Paul Auster’s Leviathan. She took inspiration for the character he created, and pushed it further by creating works based on becoming the character. Below are images of the Chromatic Diet she followed in order to get closer to Maria.  I’d love to host a chromatic dinner party this fall…
