Grid Poems Vol. I

 

Let’s start with… what exactly is a grid poem?

A grid poem is a 3 x 3-inch arrangement of lines written to allow two different readings: left-to-right and top-to-bottom. This allows subtly, or drastically, different perspectives to emerge from the same text. Part haiku, part Sudoku, the full poem is only revealed through re-reading and exploration.

 

 

Art and design collective Point in Passing just released a book of grid poetry with collaborator Brian Isett, called Grid Poems Vol. I. The book is a collection of 45 illustrated poems on hope, loss, and expectation. Not only brilliantly creative and imaginative, but also rather pertinent to the current times we’re living in.

Ashley Longshore

 

Between her wildly reimagined celebrity portraits and creatively mouthy text overlays, Ashley Longshore‘s paintings are definitely out there. From former presidents dressed in modern day couture to a classic Audrey Hepburn silhouette changed up every which way, her art can definitively be filed under pop.

My paintings are representative of the world I see around me. I am inspired by pop culture and things that I find intriguing. I really like to combine the use of words and images in an unexpected way to create a smart, colorful bold statement. Most importantly my love of color is what really makes my artwork “POP”. My paintings are statement pieces that are a reflection of the experiences I have in my life.

Paul White

 

Pencil. On. Paper. That’s all Melbourne-based artist Paul White uses to create his insanely detailed illustrations of vehicles and the occasional landscape (sometimes together in the same piece). From junkyards full of obsolete cars to graffitied passenger vans to partially deconstructed airplanes, White resuscitates each one if only for a moment in time. (Anyone else getting Max Max-ish vibes?)

15 Fall Comfort Foods

After a relatively cool August in Pennsylvania it’s been in the high-80s, meaning I’ll probably be holding off on these recipes for a bit. I haven’t been in the mood to cook for months and I’m hoping some of these super comforting dishes will get me back in the kitchen, which is usually one of my happy places. Which looks best to you?

Debora Cheyenne Cruchon

 

Los Angeles-based French illustrator/designer Debora Cheyenne Cruchon loves to experiment with different styles, and I honestly can’t find one I don’t like. That said, my favorite just might be these collage-like little numbers with vibes that make me think of Florida and the 80s (maybe even together). Check out more of her work on Instagram.

Rowan and Wren

Isla Fluted Champagne Coupe, Set of Two

I *think* I just may have a favorite fall/winter home shop – are you familiar with Rowan and Wren? Maybe it’s the impeccable styling or just-so dark and moody lighting, but I can see at least half of their goods gracing my home. My aesthetic is in the middle of changing, combining minimalist modern preferences with more traditional pieces, and Rowan and Wren’s thoughtfully sourced collection of distinctive homewares sits smack in the middle of that Venn diagram. Here are my 13 favorite things, because I quite literally couldn’t narrow the list down any further!

Trending: Embroidery

Embroidered Military Shirt

Fall trends are emerging, and high atop the list is embroidery. Every article of clothing from shoes to shirts is fair game for brightly colored thread and pattern – and I dig it. I also dig that it would easy to DIY something you already own with an appliqué to mimic the look. (Always a bonus.)
