Shepard Fairey’s Art


Everyone knows of Shepard Fairey‘s graphic artwork right?

His stuff is cool and known all around the world. His Obey giant art and the Obama “Hope” prints are probably the most known of all his work. Cool poster art with lots of detail in them. He has a unique style that has inspired many artists and graphic designers.

I as well am inspired by his work you should check out the video “Exist through the Gift Shop”. Pretty cool documentary styled film of Shepard Fairey as well as other street artists.

Working with ultra suede

DIY, handbags, sewing

20120418-163032.jpg working with ultra suede fabric is nice for the reason that it’s thin enough not to bog down your sewing machine. But….it can stretch a wee bit while seeing. So make sure everything is cute exact and you pin the living day lights out of what your sewing!

20120405-172344.jpgI am putting together a newbie! I am making a carpet bag with leather handles. So far so good! I am one to just go for it and not make a muslin sample. I always either cut out a pattern as I go or write dimensions. This one is lined with some lightweight cotton from my pile of Alexander Henry fabrics. The exterior is a nice chenille blend.
I hope to complete it tomorrow or by early next week. Of course will post when done!

Hot off the press!
