DESIGN LOOKOUT 11 : BECKY KEMP

I have a treat to share for those whimsical readers out there! I discovered Becky's work almost a year ago on good ol' Instagram, and she is definitely one of my favorite people to follow; she won't disappoint. That inner child in me just loves everything she produces, and her beautiful feed engrosses you into this magical Kokeshi doll world you never knew you'd be so into. Let me just cut to the chase- super talented girl! Apart from her fun dolls she also creates other goodies, but I'll let you browse her website ;)  

Here's a little background on the wonderful gal behind these dolls :) 

Every creation begins life on the pages of a sketchbook. My work has long been inspired by a love for Nordic design and Japanese Illustration, sketching and painting since I was a child I carry a sketchbook in my pocket 24/7. I currently work from my home studio in the South-East of England.

DESIGN LOOKOUT 10 : ASYA KOZINA

 
Design Lookout 10 : Asya Kozina

Hey guys, do I have a treat for you! Thanks to my lovely friend who posted this gem the other day, I thought I'd share this treasure for the rest of the crowd! After seeing these amazing creations I had no choice but to research the artist behind all of this talent; let's just say I quickly became one of her biggest fans.  

Ukraine native, Asya Kozina began her love for paper sculptures since her childhood, and thus flourished her numerous jaw-dropping paper exhibitions. Her latest work are these wig sculptures; they're nothing short of amazing. Additional kudos to these beautiful editorial photographs taken by Anastasia Andreeva. 

Here are a few words by the artist herself, regarding her inspiration towards these wigs: 

Historical wigs always fascinated me, especially the Baroque era. This is art for art's sake aesthetics for aesthetics, no practical sense. But they are beautiful. I made a series of wigs. Paper helps to highlight in this case the main form and not be obsessed unnecessary details.

DESIGN LOOKOUT 09 : INKED

One of my favorite things about the 'Design Lookout' column is that I find delicious eye candy from any creative spark; it doesn't necessarily have to be graphic design. For today's column I thought I'd share more of the permanent works of art. I've always had a fascination with skin art, I personally don't have a sleeve of tattoos but I think it's such an amazing talent to have. I mean, you can't really press the delete button once you've inked... As the years progress more tattoo artist have broken out of that 'I <3 mom' stereotype and have really done stunning work. If you don't believe me just check out a few of these...

DESIGN LOOKOUT 08 : WOOD & WOVEN

 
Design Lookout 08 : Wood & Woven | InBetween the Curls

Lately, Joey and I have really gotten into woodworking. And when I say 'we' I mean I sketch the ideas and he makes the magic happen :) I've always been a fan of the natural and organic look, so any slab of wood I find with imperfections or the most beautiful swirly knots, you can count on me picking it ;) 

With every project we come up with we go to our go-to's on Youtube, after all we're no pros. And although we have taken a new appreciation towards woodworking, I will always bow down to those with the remarkable talent of creating such works of art that takes us back to the heyday. So for our new found love, I've decided to share this English artist that I discovered a year ago and whose work continues to make me drool. Don't forget to support the locals :D Enjoy every knot!

We all know I love to find new artists and spread the eye candy around, so here we go... I recently discovered this gem of an illustrator and lets just say that I'm head over heels with her work. She has a fun, distinguished style that can only be explained as magical in my mind. I'm obviously not the first to have come across Katie's work, seeing as she's been recognized on the Design Sponge blog amongst other notorious sites. So if you haven't heard or seen this illustrative rockstar by now, I hope I can feed your inspirational needs today with this talent :)
