Stunning british Christmas advert for ‘John Lewis’!
Traditional animation like this still moves me so much.

I don’t get how lots of things are going well for me but I’m unhappy and shit and have no will/motivation for anything, is this what my entire adult life will be like because I didn’t sign up for this
Someone once told me the grass is much greener on the other side.

ERIN RILEY’S TABOO TAPESTRY
Philadelphia based fiber artist Erin M. Riley is tackling taboo issues with her loom. She’s capturing the issues of today’s generation with very old school traditional form of storytelling. Her threads weave together depictions of female sexuality, drug use, birth control, car crashes, selfies, among others. The results of which are breathtaking in a very perverse way - most of the images will make you feel as if you’re sneaking a peek at private photos on someones phone, the element of being privy to what’s going on behind the scene but not being talked about - and at second glance you can’t help but stare in awe at the painstaking efforts that go into her work.
Erin’s work will be showing at Philadelphia based Paradigm Gallery + Studio from August 30th - October 12th, 2013. Hope you can make it out, these tapestries are sure to stir up a dialogue.
