MOON OF MY LIFE

This man’s Khaleesi, the moon of his life…is an actual moon.

In his on-going project “Private Moon“, Russian artist Leonid Tishkov shares his quiet love affair with the ever enchanting moon, an illuminated human-sized crescent.   Traveling the world with his Lady Moon, Tishkov tells a most romantic tale of whimsy and wanderlust. Heart strings pulled.

You can view all the “Private Moon” images HERE.

READING|IS|SEXY: Girls Who Read

A clever little poem about the beautiful unicorn of a creature that is…a girl who reads.  Written and performed by British poet, Mark Grist.

Cheeky? Yes. Cheesy? Just a tad. Romantic? For days.  But also…true.

“Some guys prefer asses. Some prefer tits. And, I am not saying that I don’t like those bits…but, what’s more important, what supersedes, is a girl with passion, wit, and dreams, so I like a girl…who reads.”

Me too, Mark. Me too.

A DARK&TWISTY LOVENOTE

Dear Mr. Burton (Tim?),

You have a dark & twisty mind, and it is truly delightful.

Respectfully yours,

I am not-so-dark & only slightly twisty, but I’ll love you forever for sharing your wondrous & whimsical world.

PS: Your artwork is every bit as horrifically charming as one would hope & could only attempt to imagine.

BEST|PORTRAITS|EVER

One day, I will have a study (because I’m an old man like that) and it will have floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, a giant globe, a secret room (duh), and, now, one of these portraits.

English portraitist, George Dawe, painted the portraits of some 300+ Russian generals active during Napoleon’s invasion of Russia.  A couple hundred years later, Dawe’s portraits are getting a little modern-day, celebrity facelift…courtesy of image manipulator, Steve Payne, and his project, ReplaceFace.

I’m thinking the Morgan Freeman or the Bill Murray will look most excellent above my desk…

Which one would you want?

COLOR|CRUSH: Atomic Orange

So…the other day, this happened:

COLOR|CRUSH: Atomic Orange x Happened

My obscenely bright water bottle…matched my obscenely bright jacket.  Apparently, I have a new favorite color: Atomic Orange.  Like the sun, it’s bold and bright and oh-so-warm…and I just CAN’T. LOOK. AWAY. Also, like the sun, I’m pretty sure if you stare at it for too long, you’ll start seeing stars.  It kinda makes my heart giddy though, so, of course, I’m smitten.
