Paper and paint

Have you ever had one of those moments where you see something that completely stops you in your tracks? As I was passing by White Lady Art on the way to my bus stop after work one day, what should I see in the window but this amaze-balls piece of urban art. It was a perfect combination of some of my favourite things – skulls, drippy spray paint, graffiti and my new affection for pink. I kinda had to have it. 

I went straight into the shop. There were loads more pieces of spray can art in the shop, all handmade by the intrinsically talented Irish designer, Eric Davys. His creative process is so beautiful and detailed. It reminded me so much of before I was into interior design and was heavily interested in becoming involved in either comic book artistry or special effects makeup. I’ve contemplated blogging my work from my previous life, but as it doesn’t really fit into design, I kinda don’t think it would be appropriate. But that’s a story for another day! We’ll see. 

For the moment, cansy, that’s what I like to call him, sits on our desk and beautifully matches and juxtaposes against my My Fair Lady print which hangs over our desk. I should have taken a photo of the two together, but I’m a bad blogger and didn’t think of it at the time. Shame on me. 

I did miss my bus that day when I spotted cansy, but it was so worth it.

    This is beautiful! I absolutely adore it.
    Also, regarding your comment about a previous life, I do think that it would be appropriate. It is all creative arts, which is why I am drawn to TV shows like Face Off and Ink Master. Really anything with an artistic/creative slant to it.

    Mind you lately, I am also really into RuPaul's Drag Race. Its like watching Project Runway, America's Got Talent, ANTM, all at the same time. Oh, and its wrapped in delightful cattiness and tons of innuendo. LOVE. I gets bad now that hubby and I start using quotes from it in our daily lives.

    Wow, that was quite the digression. All that to say, post all that is artistic and delightful. Just like you!

      Hmm, I have been contemplating doing a couple of Throw Back Thursday blog posts starting from high school and going through each year of college … But the thoughts of having to scan in all that crap. Ughg.

      And I've heard RuPaul's Drag Race is quite the entertainment. I spied it on Netflix the other day so, maybe. I do enjoy a good innuendo.
