Cool New Artist: Erik Otto

I especially like his installations.

He's got prints and other things available for sale, too, and 2 books (here and here) via Blurb. Maybe they'll go on my Christmas list.

RSMc monogram

I designed this monogram for my mom. It was influenced by the Vienna Secessionists and I wanted it to be more clean and architectural--drew it with my calligraphy pen and then scanned it. We're having it letterpressed onto 2.5" square enclosure cards and onto monarch sized white cards with cloud (pale blue-grey) colored monarch envelopes.

Cool New Artist: Carl Van de Roer

I like this series by Carl Van de Roer. It was featured on 20x200, which is one my my faves.

Here's a bit about the series:
The term "orb" is typically used to describe circular artifacts in photographs—artifacts which have been interpreted by some as spirits. Despite being debunked and explained (most commonly as backscatter from precipitation or dust), there's a surprisingly widespread belief that orb photographs document the supernatural. There are organizations, conferences, hunts, field experts, detectors and websites dedicated to spiritualist orb photography.

This photographic search for something larger than ourselves was the starting point for this project. I photographed people in landscapes that are partly obscured by precipitation. The subjects are seen searching for or interacting with orbs, which are represented as dots covering parts of the scene.

Ok, Ok, I know, I know, I am renaming the blog again! I really loved palate/palette and wanted a single word with a double meaning. Mom actually came up with Paste--Perfect!

And I know it's also the name of a magazine, but if it fits, it fits!
