Inspiring Weekend: Dark Side of the Lens

"I see life in angles, lines and perspective. A slight turn of the head, the blink of an eye, subtle glimpses of magic, other folk might pass by...
I never set out to become anything in particular, only to live creatively and push the scope of my experience thru adventure, thru passion and still that all means something to me same as most with anyone with dreams..."

As though reading from a page of his journal, athlete and artist Mickey Smith soulfully takes us on an astonishing glimpse into his heart as a professional underwater photographer in his film Dark Side of the Lens.

"It also gave me the chance to ask myself a few questions, like, if you're always observing and documenting what you see and experience, are you ever truly present? Questions like that where I could step back think and see what the answers were," shares Smith (taken from Next Noize interview)

Watch and be inspired.

Daydreaming: Alice in Wonderland meets Lolita

Ladies, be awed and inspired by this subtle yet visually gorgeous video Through the Looking Glass: Lalouka's Miniature Project featuring handmade vintage inspired clothing by Lara Kaluza of Lalouka Designs. Everything about it from the music, lighting and its brilliant (brille) set, all captured the mood and feel of the clothes.I am already pondering another project on the way aside from the ones we've talked about. Exciting!

And its part of a fashion film festival, check it out here!

Funtivity: Soulful Sunday's Poetry Night

by Mark Strand

Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.

There is no happiness like mine.

I have been eating poetry...

The poems are gone.

The light is dim.

The dogs are on the basement stairs and coming up...

I am a new man.
I snarl at her and bark.
I romp with joy in the bookish dark.

Blog Crush - Geninne's Art Blog

Thanks to my older sister, I am currently crazy about stamping. And Geninne Zlatkis an illustrator/designer who lives in Queretaro, a colonial city close to Mexico, has inspiring stamp pieces in her blog Geninne Art Blog that's got me on a stamp high. There's so much more here to fill anyone's artistic appetite for journals, sketches, collages, watercolor, birds, design inspirations and simply beautiful things. It's a lovely inspiring place to get lost in.

Funtivity: Soulful Sunday

"Tonight, I can write the saddest lines...
Puedo escribir los versos mas tristes esta noche..."
- Pablo Neruda

Some time ago, we were discussing about having a poetry night on the island. A few weeks later we're already posting invites, making a list of readers and we've got people talking. It's pretty exciting. We certainly don't know how it will turn out. But what I know for sure: come Sunday night, I will certainly write the happiest lines...you dig?

Thanks Cee for the poster!
