Bright Like Neon


This is part of Tim Etchells work. He has a very particular way of making a visual representation of a thought, a feeling, or even a cliché. In his neon work he kinda screams in electric colors what others chose to whisper.

Mixed messages in bright colors has become officially my mood of the day. Let it be sunday soon!

World Graphic Design Day

Today is the World Graphic Design Day, or at least that's what Wikipedia and my entire Twitter timeline says.
If it's so, well happy day to all you graphic designers and if not, it's always a good excuse to post this clip of the german designer Stefan Sagmeister made specially for The Creators Project by the geniuses of Vice (I'm loving their work right now).

The Creators Project features Designers, Architects, Musicians, Directors, from all around the planet, the ones that are making things happen. As they say, this project is a celebration of creativity, culture and technology. So, there you go... have a look and enjoy!

* I removed the video because it started like really loud every time I open the blog, and it freaked me out. The direct link to Sagmeister's Creators Project video here.

Universal Tuesday

This is officially the mood of the day

When the days they seem fall through you, well just let them go.

Dear Inspiration,

I'm just writing you to let you know I'm right here. Since you haven't been able to find me neither working -as some people said you should- nor cooking, sleeping, procrastinating, watching a film, talking to a friend, looking at the sky, reading a book, editing photos, or else... I'm just saying, I'm here and I'm expecting you any moment now, the sooner, the better. Thought you might like to know.

See ya soon!

distant events: all become Romantic." Novalis, 1798.

París, París, París

Photos by Susie Lomovitz.

Mi mejor amiga que vive en Francia, Danielle, acaba de irse ayer luego de pasar tres semanas en Buenos Aires, mi otra mejor amiga Su (una de mis tres BFF's que viven en Madrid) acaba de regresar de unas hermosas minivacaciones en París. Hay momentos en que todas los caminos apuntan a un sitio... o... momentos en los que queremos ver todos los caminos apuntando a un mismo sitio. Cualquiera sea la alternativa honestamente no me importa, el resultado es el mismo... ¡quiero ir a París!
My best friend that lives in France, Danielle, just left Buenos Aires yesterday after expending here 3 weeks. My other best friend Su (one of my three BFF's that lives in Madrid) just got back home from a mini holidays in Paris. There are moments when every road points the same way... or... there are moments in live when we want to see every road pointing the same way. Either way the result is the same... I wanna go to Paris! :)

Wim Wenders, fotógrafo

A lo largo de años, de locaciones, de ciudades que conoció gracias a sus películas Wim Wenders ha producido un trabajo fotográfico que recientemente se exhibe en la galería Hauch of Venison de Londres con el nombre Places, strange and quiet.

Al respecto de esta compilación de imágenes dice Wenders: "When you travel a lot, and when you love to just wander around and get lost, you can end up in the strangest spots. … I don’t know, it must be some sort of built-in radar that often directs me to places that are strangely quiet, or quietly strange.”

Para más info se puede ver la página de Wim Wenders o la de la galería.

My Coffee Mugs


These are my 'Café a la venezolana' coffee mugs.
Because you may not know, but for us venezuelans, drinking coffee is really something.
The mug that's also a guide to the names and proportions of our favorite coffees.
I made these as part of the Objetitos Feels Like Home line.
You can find them in my Etsy Shop.

The last photo is the first I receive of my venezuelan coffee mug with a "con leche"
(that's like a latte) somewhere in London... is really nice, isn't it? :)

Holga and the mountain

Recién salidas del horno y frescas como una lechuga.
El Ávila y Caracas con Holga, la rusa.
These just came out of the oven and are refreshing as the greener lettuce.

The National

El domingo 03 de abril en La Trastienda, el que debe ser uno de los mejores sitios para ver un concierto así.

Pure love.
