Artist Xavier Veilhan has built a fantastic site-specific, supersized sculpture entitled ‘Sophie’ for new Paris restaurant, Le Germain (designed by India Mahdavi.)  As you can see, Sophie is a very tall girl and spans two floors.  Vielhan has posted images of the whole process of making ‘Sophie’, which are particularly interesting.

PLUS she’s faceted!

Horizon Fire

Nice retro posters by graphic designer / musician Horizon Fire.  He immediately won me over with his yellows and petrol blues.

Mexican artist Alejandra Laviada’s Photo Sculptures are collections of found objects placed together in sculptural (and unexpected) forms.

They’re not only impressive creations – but beautifully photographed as well.  ‘Beauty in every day objects’ is a bit of a cliché – but she has really managed to reinvent the idea.  Who knew used paint rollers could be so stunning??

M. Carter

Ok, it’s officially summer.  Thought I’d share this some really great summery merchandise (t-shirts, tote bags and sweatshirts) from from Brooklyn’s M. Carter.

I think the wood effect t-shirt with carved graffiti may be my favourite.  And yes, how true, global warming IS a bummer.

Via We Love You So.

Tim Burton

The Guardian has been previewing some rare, illustrative works by Tim Burton before his massive MOMA retrospective later this year.  This exhibition sounds like it’ll be pretty amazing – including never before seen drawings, sculptures and puppets, as well as work from unrealized projects.

It’s on from November until April 2010.  Maybe a good year to spend New Years in NYC??

On this sunny Tuesday afternoon, I thought I’d share some lovely portfolio work from photographer Rachael Smith.  I like Rachael’s straightforward and honest approach; it feels like she captures these spaces as they actually are.

And thanks to these I’m now contemplating painting all my white doors grey.  (Of course, there’s no way I’ll actually do it.)
