I WANT TO LIVE IN THE WELLCOME COLLECTION

The last few days have been a wonderful, inspirational blur.
I really like going to museums, and I had some free time, so
lets just say I went to more than a few museums.

And I don't just rush through to say I went, I'm usually the
straggler that has to get kicked out because the museum
closed 25 minutes ago.

I want to try to post the inspiration from everything so I remember it all,
but I have seen so much, so it might take a little bit of time, and a lot of posts.

Here's an outline of what's to come....

Pt 1: Tate Britian: Turner Prize 08

Pt 2: Tate Britian: Francis Bacon

Pt 3: Tate Britian: Misc

Pt 4: Garden History Museum

Pt 5: Haribo Heaven (I am telling you it was extremely inspirational)

Pt 6: Tate Modern: Misc (this was at least my 5th trip there)

Pt 7: Science Museum: Japan Car

Pt 8: Science Museum: Birth of Hi-tech Britain

Pt 9: Science Museum: Listening Post

Pt 10: Science Museum: Plasticity

Pt 11: V&A: Fashion V Sport

Pt 12: V&A: Cold War Modern: Design 1945-7

Pt 13: V&A: Misc

Pt 14: Natural History Museum: Misc

Pt 15: Wellcome Collection: War + Medicine

Pt 16: Wellcome Collection: The Watch Man

Pt 17: Wellcome Collection: Medicine Man

Pt 18: Wellcome Collection: Medicine Now

Pt 19: Barbican: Curve Art Installation

Pt 20: Barbican: On the Subject of War

Pt 21: Barbican: Robert Capa and Gerda Taro

Pt 22: Barbican: Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson


Man didn't realize there would be so many parts, but yah, stay tuned.
Also have a million bookmarks and insp images to go through that
will be tossed in there to lighten it up a bit.

Quilling

Literally every design blog has posted the work of Yulia Brodskaya this week.



However, I never saw any mention of quilling.
I wonder if any/many of the people that saw this work is familiar with it.
Back in high school I had a "quilling phase" where I made like a million different designs with the technique.
It is actually fairly easy to do with a little patience, more people should experiment with it...

Could it be any better?

I don't think so.

still love it though, so it doesn't matter)

the selby

A site full of interesting people and their creative spaces.

Apparently this is what happens when I am ill.
I go through the entire selby website.
And think about my apt on the other side of the ocean.
Someday, maybe, I'll make the list.
