Isabel-Ruben-toledo_2_christmas

As we’re just a few days from Christmas, I wanted to bring you the final Ruben Toledo post, except this time I’m also featuring his equally talented wife, fashion designer Isabel Toledo. You may remember hearing about Isabel Toledo when Michelle Obama wore one of her creations at the 2008 inauguration (below). In every interview I’ve read from the couple, they both speak SO HIGHLY of one another and how talented and creative each of them are. Truly a great partnership, and don’t they look so cute together? Enjoy a few photos of the couple below, and check out shots from the Toledo home studio featured on the Selby in 2010. Get into it, and happy holidays! ❤

Harold Hollingsworth - studio_6 copy

Yesterday I blogged about the creative sketchbooks of Harold Hollingsworth, and today I’d like to take a closer look at his paintings and studio. Hollingsworth is based in Seattle, Washington and has exhibited works in Berlin, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Portland, and (of course) Seattle. Above you can see his painting Double Rocker (my favorite!) in his studio. I love the graphic nature of his mixed media paintings. Many remind me of the layered wheat-pasted posters that cover barricades around NYC. I also like that his work appears very typographic in appearance to my graphic design eyes. If you enjoy Hollingsworth’s work like I do, follow him on Twitter, Tumblr, check his blog, and see what he’s up to on Flickr.

So many options, get into it!
