I recently discovered the blog of Domahoka, a duo who were formerly the creators behind Beard & Bangs and who are now a showroom and sometimes online shop. I love the interviews they have with so many amazing creative people. Like Kazu, Maya Villiger, and many more. Check them out here.

Fumiko Imano photography

I love the work of artist Fumiko Imano. I just found a link to her blog, and was reminded of how much I love the playful spirit of her work. It looks like she has a cool exhibit up in Singapore right now. I was so sad I just missed her show with Kotori Kawashima in Tokyo by a couple days when I was there.

Lili Cuzor Tigers to Lilies Midsummer Nights Crafts Shelter Half LA workshops

If you’re in LA you can’t miss this! My dear friend Lili is organizing several amazing craft nights at Shelter Half in LA starting this week. Go and check them out and sign up here! I wish I could be at all of them! They are all hosted by incredibly talented ladies with amazing skills. Krissy of Color Plantae is a natural dye master, and she collaborates with Thvm often. Lili of Tigers to Lilies is a photographer and floral artist wizard who I’ve written about many times. Brit Browne I’ve yet to meet but she taught this workshop that looked like such an incredibly nice time at Beatrice’s place, and is an indigo expert. Beautiful illustration above by Lauren of Spencer Studio.

Style From Tokyo- Tokyo 100

Rei Shito Style From Tokyo Tokyo 100 Fashion Guide book

Rei Shito Style From Tokyo Tokyo 100 Fashion Guide book

Style From Tokyo’s Rei Shito has published Tokyo 100 fashion guide, and it’s far better than any shopping guide book I’ve seen. The book follows her around town throughout the year, shopping, meeting people, eating.. and is filled with lots of great images of shops and her street style photos, along with maps, addresses and interviews. She even interviews my absolute favorite Japanese stylist Yoko Omori. Sadly it’s all in Japanese, but the addresses and maps are usable for non-Japanese readers. I highly recommend this book if you’re planning a trip to Japan or if you just feel like taking an imaginary one there and are a fan of her blog. Of course for more food, culture, and interesting sights Hello Sandwich’s Tokyo guide is a must as well.

The First 70

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

This is heartbreakingly sad! Growing up my summer vacations were spent camping in California parks, and California needs all the natural greenery it can manage to hold on to. I hope these places don’t get developed with track homes or filled with toxic waste. If anyone wants to take a minute to see what they can do click here or here for some options. If you’re looking for where to go on for a summer vacation any of these places would be cheap and beautiful experiences, and a great way to support them.
