FabulousCatPapers aka Chara on Etsy

There’s quite a quirky and creative shop on Etsy called Fabulous Cat Papers that has a wide range of beautiful handmade notebooks with intricate embroidery. Chara, the Athens-based creator behind the shop, uses unconventional images to breathe life into her embroidery: from blood vessels, skulls and holograms to webs, carcasses, and mathematical formulas.

Louis Edwin Fry, beyond the photographic patina

Artist on Tumblr | Flickr

London-based filmmaker and photographer Louis Edwin Fry likes serious artistic projects and conceptual images, able to stir emotions, but also requiring a certain amount of attention and discerning abilities.

After studying photography at Camberwell College of Arts he spent a year at the Academy of Visual Arts (HGB) in Leipzig. His portfolio boasts various photographic series, such as “Facemask”, a collection of portraits in which he “tried to capture and record both the physical state in front of the camera and the emotional state during the photographs’ creation”. Louis Edwin Fry has an eye that’s not only put to use in static images, filming is another passion of his.

His latest documentary project is called “Temnyy Girls”. Currently in post-production, it was shot in the area of Moscow and includes face to face interviews with lesbian girls forced to coexist with the harsh anti-gay laws promoted by Putin and the resulting amount of discrimination and exclusion. “Presently we are looking for final funding to complete the last interview translations”, explains Louis.

Postcards for Ants, Artist Creates A Miniature by Lorraine Loots

Artist on Tumblr | FacebookInstagram

Cape Town-based artist Lorraine Loots took up a remarkable 365-day challenge: to create a miniature painting every single day for an entire year. The artist began her challenge in the beginning of 2013 and, after enjoying the routine of her successful challenge, she decided to continue with the “Postcards for Ants” project in 2014.

The young artist has dedicated this year’s works exclusively to Cape Town, which happens to be the official World Design Capital of 2014. Fans of Loots’s work can write to the artist and book up-coming paintings or prints, or suggest Cape Town-themed ideas or places for her to paint.

Still quite a bit left to do, but it’s really coming together! I like the colors in this dress so much more then my red and white version. I think it looks a lot less juvenile and way more magical. 

It’s made from organza and chiffon with a tulle overlay and $60 of fake flowers.

I have information about how I’m making it here! And a video about it here
