Luke Rudolph

Fresh off the red eye… only a few hours sleep… zzzzzzzzz.

These fantastic paintings from Luke Rudolf are a good illustration of how my brain feels.

Via but does it float.

The Making of Fantastic Mr. Fox

Angus Hyland at Pentagram has designed a new book about the making of the Fantastic Mr. Fox film.  The book investigates the process of bringing this film to life – including sketches, technical drawings, script notes, fabric samples, and behind the scenes images of the sets and puppets. 

Looks like a must have for all you design junkies out there.

Available  and – and on sale!  It’s officially Christmas season people – get shopping.

Living Like Shona Heath

I’m off to states now to celebrate Thanksgiving – a real Planes, Trains & Automobiles day (train to Heathrow, flight to NYC, train upstate, and final taxi home.)  Needless to say, posts will be a bit slow and sporadic in the coming days.

In the meantime, enjoy these lovely images of superstar stylist Shona Heath’s very cool flat.  Dollhouse and plant stand?  Check. African print, coffee cup tablecloth?  Check.  Yellow kitchen cabinets?  Check!

These images are possible quite old – Ms. Heath probably lives in some crazy mansion somewhere now – but I like them anyway.

Pocknell Studio

I should probably have a whole section here for barn conversions… it’s a mini-obsession that I hope others share!

This one is Pocknell Studio in Essex – originally a 14th century cathedral barn that was converted into a live/work space.  The original, wooden framework has been preserved on the exterior – but the interior has been completely modernized.

On top of that – the work and living spaces are separated by am amzing rustric yet contemporary courtyard, hangar-type space.  Basically it’s too difficult to describe – just look at the lovely pics, ok??

Available through location agency Tattersall Love.
