Kyle Hopkins for Showstudio

Did anybody else watch it?

I'd never even heard of Kyle before but after a quick google i can honestly say his jewellery is beautiful. Weird at times but still so well crafted.  He did a live showstudio stream over the course of a few days covering the theme of death by casting his own face to create a death mask. Half front facing face cast and half skull, Kyle embedded 20+ miniature signature tiny figures all over and inscribed it with the phrase 'Sic transit gloria Mundi' which translates to 'Thus passes the glory of the world'. DEEP.
I think i enjoyed this particular project so much possibly because Kyle and his team were so down to earth. Whilst they worked, they had general chit chat, answered live Q & A's from viewers and giggled about random songs that would come on from their ipod shuffle.
The work itself was very interesting to watch, and great to see how it can come together in such a short space of time. Here are some screen shots i managed to pull towards the end and of the final presentation.

Catch Kyle Hopkins over the next few days exhibiting some of his TO DIE FOR pieces (i've seen them, they're all genius) at Somerset house for London Fashion week 2012.

One of my favourite books

I know i did a post not too long ago about great books being made into films this year but somehow this slipped my radar.
The perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky has always been a firm favourite of mine, more so than the other books i've blogged about (On the Road & The Great Gatsby).
I'm not entirely sure how this one is going to go and after watching the trailer i'm 50/50. Possibly because it means a lot more to me how this is interpreted. However it does star eye candy by the name of Ezra Miller (There's something about Kevin) so maybe there's hope after all.

Got your lipstick marks still on my coffee cup

These beautiful retro inspired coffee mugs arrived in the post for me the other day from Dotcomgiftshop and I have been finding excuses to make coffee every other five minutes for me and my housemates. Happy as Larry doesn't cut it.
