Holiday Windows

I was pleasantly surprised yesterday, when after running some errands, I found myself on the corner of 57th and 5th Avenue. The window installations at Bergdorfs channeled 1920s glamour with a carnivale of animals. While each window was complex in its own rite, the overarching themes created necessary cohesion.

Everyone has a wildly creative friend, one who tackles all different types of media with gusto. Allyson Ross is that lady. While she has her MFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts, she is currently devoting her time to designing her own line of jewelry. They are inspired by nature but have a distinctly art deco feel. To purchase check out her Etsy site.

When I was younger, I would spend hours in my room cutting and pasting bits of paper together. I recently rediscovered my lost art of collage and here are the results.

 I love how the juxtaposition of images can totally change their original meanings. In my work, I find myself continuously attracted to antlered animals, who have historically represent unbridled nature, specifically an  emasculated nature. The second theme is the female nude and how express it can alternatively express a dangerous sexuality or natural innocence. Anyway, Enjoy!

I grew up with a brother who is just a over a year older than me and also happens to be a lifelong sports fanatic. As both my idol and biggest competition, I had to play every sport that he did- baseball, hockey, soccer, tennis, whatever.  But once I hit high school, then college, then post college, my tomboyishness faded into feminity (although I've retained my excellent hand-eye coordiation). 

So when I stumbled across the Tomboy Style blog, which pays homage to the tomboys of history, I felt the need to crawl back into my jeans and tees. Some inspiration for y'all.

Mythological Creature

Viking Goddess descends into the highlands to find the holy sword and resurrect the rightful king. Ok maybe not, but I love the otherworldly quality of this shoot.
