Sailor in a Cup

sailor in a cup, originally uploaded by Camilla E.

Camilla Engman has been posting the progress of her collaboration with Karin Eriksson on Flickr and her lovely blog, and I had to show you this little sailor. I think he's wonderful, and a beautiful hopeful colour to lift the melancholy feeling. Apparently there's also a heart in the bottom of the cup which Camilla says he is "looking for... or maybe he has lost it.".

Cecil Beaton

I came across this quote in my sketchbook today. He's quite poetic in his utter disgust at ordinariness.

Marimekko for H&M

Can't wait to get my mitts on some of this patterny goodness. The H&M website seemed to be down this morning, but there's some images on The Cut and nitro:licious.

Helen Dardik Pattern
I found Helen Dardik's blog and portfolio site today via Print Pattern, and it's fantastic! I can't believe I hadn't seen it before. She has a really exciting style and great use of colour and hand-drawn typography - see the bits I pinched from her website above.
