Birdhead by Drew Beckmeyer
Maybe it's this strange weather change or the fact that I haven't adjusted my time difference from NYC quite yet. Maybe it's this upcoming solo show I have and the fact that I haven't set foot in the studio in almost a month.
Maybe it's that inspiration knows no bounds...
YES! That's it!
I've been overloading on all things beautiful, interesting, clever, weird & wonderful and letting them come in, stay awhile, and then lodge themselves in the recess' of my brain. It almost feels like too much great stuff, but I figure if I share it, it will spread and eventually lessen (in a good way, of course).
So, it's not a normal thing for me...but I'm going to delve into everything (okay, that would be impossible)--how bout a few things that're filling my brain:
An awesome ode to New York, a city that I have a never-ending crush on, big time
Davey Dance Blog -26- BROOKLYN BRIDGE - Ace Frehley - "NY Groove" from Pheasant Plucker on Vimeo.
I first saw this video on Mega's blog, which keeps me constantly in the know about all things musical. Thanks Megs. You can also find more of Davey's dances around the world here & here. I don't personally know Davey, but he's the first person that's made me dance in my chair watching a video!
And I know I've mentioned it before, but David Byrne's current play list is so fantastic--if you don't have itunes, you can stream it straight from his site. An excellent mix. Not to be missed.
I recently learned about this gorgeous site from Modern Craft (who is worth checking into everyday, as he posts great things...well, every day!) I'm heading into the purchase of Rob Ryan's book and the wishful thinking purchase of this amazing book.
The image above is by an artist I just can't seem to get enough of: Drew Beckmeyer. I wish I could describe what it is that he does that actually does me in...but I can't articulate. If I could, I might have just blogged about Drew solely. Instead, I chose an image of his that seemed to sum up my entire being right this moment. Please check out more of his pieces on his site. There's a black and white sketch of kids swinging on the swings and one of the kids flys right out of seat into the sky. That image could work for me right now too....
And, finally, Etsy. I know most bloggers know about Etsy and prolly spend a heck of a lot of time on there. Since my inspirational thoughts lately are just that: thoughts, spending money doesn't come into play that often. But, if I could, I would spend it here, here and here.
Scattered? You bet! All over the place? For sure. Happily entertained by all the beauty and creativity that reigns out there? Thank goodness!
