mixes: daily

a mix of daily photos

bought the white pair of these just before xmas (jesus, almost 4 months ago)

laptop view of a piece i did for avant garde magazine// early-morning sunlight spots on the bedroom wall
how cute are these 'potami' potted plants & cacti made by our friend!?
and an adorable strawberry-selling van i caught on my travels, i love that they look like hearts

selfie in front of the dentist's elevator  // hip chairs at the draw pop up shop

a parade of shoes (also known as 'time to tidy up')

excel is one the the things i hate most in the universe

so im cancelling that damn excel yellow with a much more cheerful yellow to end

pin ups & hot rods

came across some photography by david perry
basically badass chicks with equally cool cars
here's some wikipedia to start:
-A pin up pin-up girl is a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture-
 -Hot rods are typically old classic American cars with large engines modified for linear speed-
-A rat rod is a style of hot rod or classic car that, in most cases, imitates or exaggerates 
the early hot rods of the 1940s, 1950s, and early-1960s-
-Most rat rods appear "unfinished", as only the vehicle's bare essentials are driven-

the first print i saw was Pink Tattoo above, possibly slutty but also charming
she led me to others:

 Rock-a-Billy Queen Rat Rod

Bluegrass Rat Rod

Hot Rod Pin Up Girl


Chop Top Street Rod

West House Deuce

Pink Tattoo is still my favourite, im considering buying a print for one of my walls
