My Inspirations for January 2015

31 Jan

This year couldn’t have possibly started in a better way. The month of January has been a real collage of inspirations. I’ve been streched between two different worlds; dark, Victorian style and macabre world of Tim Burton (Corpse Bride and things like The Gashlycrumb Tinies, Lemony’s Snickets: A Series of Unfortunate Events, Classic and Gothic Lolita), and the world of fairies and forests (The Lord of the Rings, W. Blake’s art). Lothlorien forest is enchanting, isn’t it?

I’ve also read Mirbeau’s masterpiece Diary of a Chambermaid. My other inspirations were films such as Zoolander, Midnight in Paris, Yes Man Movie, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Iggy the Eskimo and Syd Barrett, first album by The 13th Floor Elevators, Scrapbook ‘A Memorial of a Friendship‘ by Anne Wagner, Bronte Sisters, Gothic Interiors…

Film Alice in Wonderland (1966) has also been a great inspiration for me.

The Gashlycrumb Tinies – Edward Gorey

21 Jan

This illustrated alphabet book has been very inspirational to me lately and I wanted to share it with you because maybe you weren’t familiar with it, and if you were, perhaps you’d enjoy looking at this gorgeous, slightly morbid, Victorian style illustrations again.
