Design Explosion?

Once upon a time a stranger walked past my work and called it a 'design explosion'
At the time I was completely offended...
which I'm sure was partially due to the tone of his voice
and the disgusted look on his face, as he viewed my work and gave me his critique!

And now, I look at Basso and Brooke's Autumn/Winter Ready To Wear 10/11 collection...
the first words that came to my mind were

D E S I G N . E X P L O S I O N

I think Basso and Brooke's textile prints are totally irregular, brazen and mismatched

... in the best possible way ...


I can finally say I am very proud to claim the design explosion title

Remember...
"The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance, the wise grows it under his feet"

typographical genius...

I'm not very good with words... but these make me wish I was...

Guillaume Apollinaire was an innovator of French poetry in the early 1900's

"It would be strange, during an epoch when the absolutely most popular artform, cinema, is a picture-book, if the poets did not try to create images for the thoughtful and more sophisticated souls, who will not be content with the filmmakers' clumsy imagination. The movies will get more sophisticated, and one can foresee the day when the phonograph and the cinema will be the only recording techniques in use, and poets may revel in a liberty hitherto unknown."

Here are some of his Calligrammes, which I absolutely L O V E
... and they're in French! which makes them all the more pretty ...

a little something... in progress

this is a drawing I've been working on...
it's inspired by a quote that I came across, by James Oppenheim.

"The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance, the wise grows it under his feet"
