Shane Lavalette


New York-based photographer Shane Lavalette has a lovely series inspired by one of Swiss photographer Theo Frey’s own projects. In Still (Noon), Lavalette traveled to the same twelve villages in Switzerland that Frey traveled to and photographed in the 1930s. The homage feels just right for this time of year with its grey light and solemn subject matter.








31 Days of Alcoholidays


‘Tis the season for stress, procrastination, and heavy pours in your rocks glass. This year I’ve taken the usual 25 cocktails of the Alcoholidays and upped it to 31 – a full month of tasty libations, if and when you want one. Want even more? Check out recipes from years past: 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.

































Andrew Ooi


Canadian painter, sculptor, and pattern-maker Andrew Ooi individually creases, unfolds, paints, and re-folds each piece of paper in his art by hand before assembling them all together. By combining color, pattern, and shape, Ooi creates a well-organized natural order.

“My art is about making sense of the world. It is about arranging the disparate shapes and elements I perceive environments, histories, geographies, art, artistry and human nature to be made up of into tangible systems and forms,” explains Andrew. “It is about occupying these realities, ideas and interests in feeling and being, to allow meaning and its significance in the long view, to develop measuredly.”








Lattes 12 Ways

The temperature has been dropping, which directly correlates with the amount of hot beverages I consume on a daily basis. Right now I’m at two – coffee in the morning and tea in the evening – but come January that will surely double. Here are some latte recipes I’ve got bookmarked for when I need to add some variety into the rotation.














Katie Evans


The hidden strength of women, so eloquently portrayed by artist Katie Evans through her illustrations.

“At first glance the women in my work may appear meek and docile, lying lifeless or staring blankly into space. The seemingly submissive poses they hold become performances of endurance as they firmly resist their environment. They are immersed within themselves, possessing a quiet, reserved power.”

Olivia Walker


At first look, the porcelain works of Olivia Walker seem to have some sort of botanical influence. Turns out it’s coral. Walker explores growth and decay through the addition and subtraction of tiny pieces of porcelain clay to the initial vessel she’s created, each shape speaking to her and dictating the final result.






Josie Lewis


Multidisciplinary artist Josie Lewis creates works that make me – and I’m guessing lots of others – insanely happy! Winding trails of graduated colored circles that travel over and under themselves on their journey, abstract moments caught forever in resin that remind me of the prettiest petri dishes, and so much more.
