I came across these amazing striped shirt portraits by illustrator Mary Matson (who really deserves another post, so, so talented), each piece was inspired by a striped shirt belonging to one of Mary’s fabulous friends. The artwork is being sold in limited editions for Japan at the delightful Chance. You do know about Chance don’t you? If not you are going to want to kiss me through the screen for introducing you to this emporium of simplicity and chicness. Word on the street is there is a brick and mortar store in NYC, if this is true I am adding it to my ‘must visit’ list when I am there next week. Yes, I may be leaving for New York, in the middle of summer where the humidity will be so thick even my naturally straight hair will develop a wave. I am going for a client but plan on extending my time there a couple days so I can do important things like visit M+J Trimming (a crafter’s mecca). I am also hoping to meet up with some fellow photo enthusiasts and shoot in Central Park. I was lucky enough to be able to do this once with one of my Souvenir Foto School students and it was such a thrill to be able to meet a cyber friend in person. So if you are in New York next week and feel like taking a stroll around the park at twilight with me (and you are not an axe murderer) send me an email. If you guessed that I will need to hold off on my soft launch for Besotted Brand you would be correct. With all this anticipation I certainly hope I won’t be letting anyone down, I do know that no matter what I will be over the moon to finally unveil my shop and be able to finally share it with you.
