Fabrice Fouillet was born in 1974. He first studied sociology and ethnology, then photography at the Gobelins school in Paris, and specialized in still lifes. He currently lives in Paris and regularly works with many magazines, such as Vogue, Wallpaper, Numero, L’Express, Le Monde, The New York Times… His out-of-studio approach fluctuates between art and documentary and aims to explore the close relationship of men with their environment. His work favours a thorough architectural approach and stems from a particular outlook and idea, serving uncluttered aesthetics. In 2013, his series on new places of worships, “Corpus Christi”, won the Sony Awards in the category “Architecture”.

I am working on a series of illustrations of DJs and record producers of electronic dance music. So far I had drawn Tiësto, Steve Aoki and now, the French duo Daft Punk. More to come… soon. Link to my website here.

Designer Thad Markham is a California native, born and raised in the mountains of Southern California. His youth was spent skiing competitively every winter and racing around Big Bear Lake on jet skis and waterskis all summer. Santa Barbara was the next stop, as Thad pursued an engineering degree at UCSB. He worked in his field for a mercifully brief time before striking out for more exciting pastures as an entrepeneur. Thad moved to Cambria, California in 1992. Years of hard work and long hours later, his business a roaring success, Thad’s ever-active mind sought new challenges. It all started with the bananas. One bright sunny morning he was sitting at breakfast and his glance fell on a bunch of bananas on the table. “That’s funny,” he said to himself, “it almost looks like they’re dancing.” Thus began his preoccupation with the secret lives of fruits and vegetables…he began haunting the produce department of the grocery store, his mind captivated with a single burning question… What do the fruits and vegetables do at night when no one is watching?

‘Whether he uses digital photography, sculpture, public statuary, installations or even the art of the exhibition, Xavier Veilhan builds his work around the same axis: the possibilities of representation. The Rhinoceros (1999), made at life-size, was lacquered in Ferrari red in a way that instantly modifies the perception of the mastodon’s ‘body work’.’ Link here.

Michael Moebius

 photo Michael_Mobius_Dream_Marilyn_Monroe_zps1aeb23d3.jpg

Michael Moebius came into the world in 1968, in the city of Pirna, Germany. Having developed a love for art at an early age, cartooning became his first passion. But in the then-communist East Germany, more pragmatic pursuits were the order of the day. Art would have to be put on the back burner while a formal education was pursued, and Michael decided on a career in engineering and construction. It was during a stint working in a parallel field of architectural illustration that Michael happened upon a book featuring the pin-ups of Alberto Vargas. A new love affair took root, and Michael decided that figurative art would be his life’s work. He started studying painting at the academy of arts in Dresden, and in 1998 he got a big breakthrough. It was at this time, after the fall of the Berlin Wall, that Michael was able to make his way to the United States. His talent as a painter and photographer was readily apparent, and he quickly became a sought-after favorite of collectors. Michael has already been part of major exhibitions throughout the US. His collector base and publishers include Playboy, Procter & Gamble, Laura Biagiotti, Vogue, Vanity Fair and other well-known companies.”

These sexy tea light holders are an easy-to-make, inexpensive DIY project to add style to your favorite living space. These candle holders are made out of lace underwear. Yes, underwear! I cut up the bikinis (generously provided by the lovely people at BEX nyc) .. wrapped and glued them to small latex balloons.. waited a couple hours for it to dry. I then took the balloons out and put LED tea light candles inside, and viola! With this simple idea, you can enjoy candle light anytime. Click here for the link.
