Mike Mills sketch

Sketch done while listening to a great interview with director Mike Mills + Terry Gross on Fresh Air.
Mike Mills was taking about his new film 20th Century women based which is based on his mom.
I so love her interviews. Excellent company.

Sketch is very much influenced by Saul Steinberg and contains an homage to him.
That is his brush and pen cup in the middle of the sketch.

New drawing: J crew lace dress

The styling with the pulled back hair and big earrings reminds me very much of comrags's Fall 2015 Collection which was inspired by Tina Modotti.

Tim Lam's fantastic Kitchen transformation

Am still in a post election haze :-( so was nice to have something cheerful to focus on today. The Interior Designer Tim Lam revealed the amazing kitchen transformation he just completed as part of the One Room Challenge. He took a dark, basic builder kitchen and transformed it into an inviting and sophisticated space in 6 short weeks.

See the attached dramatic before and after photos below:

Dark basic builder kitchen

Light, bright inviting space that looks double the size!

My favourite Tim choices:

1. Spraypainting the dark cupboards (colour = Sophistication from Para Paints)
and switching out the hardware = affordable change with big impact

2. Installing a custom streamlined builtin with hidden storage for the microwave

3. The polished nickel wall sconces and floating shelves keeping company with my Big pear print.

Congrats Tim on your  fantastic transformation.
Am very happy to have my art in this beautiful new kitchen.
