creative clothing rods : annaleena leino

What a cool solution. The Swedith interior stylist, Annaleena Leino, made this hand-forged iron cursive clothing hanger for her home. She’s considering producing them — I vote yes!

She makes a few other clothing hangers for retail with similar structures but in a variety of shapes, pictured below as well.

For a special client’s birthday dinner, I used resistance fluid to create these watercolor washed place cards on soft Arturo paper. Here’s a video of the indigo watercolor being applied — I found it mesmerizing!

bryn listens : sharon jones & the dap-kings

Posted: April 4th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: music | 1 Comment »

Saw Ms. Sharon Jones and her Dap-Kings perform this week. She’s looking great and the band sounds incredible, against the odds of her battle with cancer this past year (she’s cancer-free now). It took me back to the many times I’ve seen them live and to how much I love this song in particular. Here she is in 2011 on Conan, a night before her show at Southpaw, Brooklyn, which I remember so well. Bravo Sharon!
