wayne pate

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

i love this whimsical – yet simpleness of wayne pate’s screen prints. i am really loving the detail on the pants in contemplating hockney – how the outline of his legs are the same color as the background. i’ve been trying to incorporate more of this – uhh how do you describe this – in my graphic design – but i’m not good enough at all the tools for it to be easy – it seems like it should be – but alas – frustrated sally – i just need to keep practicing… i digress.
check out wayne pate’s work here. his screen prints are pretty large – and the prices are really great – perfect for a kids room – or to add a bit of playfulness to an ‘adult’ room.
two of my favorites

a bit of blondie in the front – and then coppery-strawberry blondie throughout.

disco ball stairs.. uhhhh, yes please!

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

i am the proud owner of a disco ball- or two.. but come on, this disco ball inspired staircase is absolutely beyond amazing. which leaves me wondering.. how could someone without stairs do something equally as chic and inspired? maybe the inside of a window sill, outdoor steps or garden pavers could be cool, or maybe just a little strip of wall.. like some random, meaningless architectural element that is subtle, but could really pop by adding disco ball mirrors?! wow.. just such a cool idea.

i think this is from rue magazine, or one of their contributors blogs’.

today i feel alive! It’s been awhile since i’ve felt so much excitement and nerves all at the same time. i’m pitching a little business idea at startup weekend, phoenix. positive vibes are out there.. i feel them… i just need to find a place to put the fear, so all my positive energy can shine through. : )

Krazy for Munsell

Albert Henry Munsell is basically the founder of modern color theory… yep, photoshop color selector uses his theory.. it’s fascinating and geeky inspiring how he organizes colors.

too small to fail

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

it’s kind of funny where we find motivation. i was just looking for an image that would sum up all of the feelings in my head about how some days are better than others.. and blah blah… bad day….. blah blah… and then I come upon this poster in my image library by one of my favorite poster making crew aesthetic apparatus.. and it just made me think… hey… stop that! get your ass in gear. .. everything is okay.. you are fine.. and too small to fail.. what are you waiting for.
