Erin Case creates collages that mix the old, new and unknown into a beautiful, surreal and perfectly balanced mess. My favourites are the silhouttes/landscape combos where classic photos are cut out and layered upon choppy images of marble and dreamy mountain scapes . Her whole collection can be viewed here where I’m sure you will find a favourite.
As Indonesian photographer and digital artist Agan Harahap was looking back through history he saw a gap which he took upon himself to fill…and has done a darn good job of it if you ask me! I like nothing better than art that induces cheeky smiles. Spot the intruders?

A note from the man that I sincerely hope needs no introduction, Johnny Cash.
That’s really nice June. You’ve got a way with words and a way with me as well.
The fire and excitement may be gone now that we don’t go out there and sing them anymore, but the ring of fire still burns around you and I, keeping our love hotter than a pepper sprout.
Fair to say summer is WAH’s season of choice…but if you’ve gotta do winter at some stage I don’t mind if it looks something like this. Large cups of hot cocoa and outdoor spas MUST be included.

She’s the new go-to when the critics want to love to hate someone…Lana Del Ray. Regardless, I think she makes freaking incredible video clips (or at very least has someone making good decision for her) by chosing Yoann Lemoine as director.
‘Blue Jeans’ had a clip that I remember seeing a while back in much the same style as her first single ‘Video Games’, but this revamped version is apparently meant to be a prequel to the epic ‘Born To Die’. Shuddering at the alligators, loving the tattooed boy + architecture in that first shot by the pool and totally in awe of her undeniable bombshell beauty.

With surname ‘Lumiere’ it was a rather appropriate destiny that chose August & Louis, two French brothers who patented the cinematograph and are regarded as some of the first film makers in history. Forget 3 hour epics – you’ll be hard pressed to find anything longer than a minute which just makes you appreciate every second that much more.
“Shot and hand-colored – frame by frame – at the end of the 19th Century. Still captivating today, but just imagine what it must have been like to watch an image move and transform like this in 1899! A beautiful example of the earliest cinematic art…”

I will be honest and tell you that Tasmania has never been a destination that makes my ears prick up (a NB for our non Australian, non geographically inclined readers: it’s that small triangular unattached island right down the bottom of our country) but ever so slowly and surely my humble opinions are being transformed. The newest gem I have heard about, Saffire Freycinet luxury eco lodge, had me at 1000 thread count, a call for your reading preferences, fresh squid and a mini bar stocked with local produce, wine & beer…FOR FREE! coughcoughincludedinyourminimum$1500pernightpricetag Continue reading
This morning I woke up with visual cravings, strangely satisfied only by a large feast of old Hollywood glamour. Maybe it was my weekend full of bill-paying bar work serving cheap champagne and Happy Hour cocktails or perhaps even the ‘My Week with Marilyn’ posters I keep seeing around that subliminally have my mind ticking over better times where there was no such thing as side boobs, heroin chic or distressed anything – except for damsels.
Jar Jar Binks wears Margiela, Darth Vader wears Band of Outsiders, Superman wears D&G. The words alone spark intrigue and imagination on so many levels and when John Woo executes these visions through watercolour with such skill & class, any potential gimmicky hipster factor that may or may not have gone through your head should be layed to the wayside, or at least taken on with pleasure rather than eye rolls.
