Cloche Hats

My sister and I have always been huge fans of arty hats.  Obviously, basically because they are wearable sculpture art.
One of our favorite designers is Bahida Dolic, aka yellowfield7.  Her hats are just sculptural, fluid, art deco, flattering masterpieces.

apr11-2013,hats-yellowfield71What is more edgy and romantic than a good cloche hat?  I chose to show them to you guys in this ’60’s-circular shape, just because I love how cloche hats and short bobs made such a comeback in the 1960’s, even though they are really a ’20’s-’30’s thing…

Contour Drawings, YO

Here are some contour drawings I’ve been doing.

 I really love this method to drawing. Its so intentionally imperfect, yet it doesn’t look gimmic-y or unrealistic. I find that I am actually able to add a lot of extra details and realism sometimes, even if shapes end up being totally wonky.

Contour drawings remind me of Shel Silverstein poems.

I used to know a guy named Shael and he was really cool, but we ‘drifted apart’ in, like, grade 5. And then I saw him again once a couple years ago, and he still seemed really cool. I like to think if things had happened differently, I would have or could have been friends with both Shael and Shel. I never actually really got into “Where The Sidewalk Ends“, but I was always sure that the guy who wrote it would’ve made the best uncle or grandpa.

I don’t know… still… I mean, I want to love this poem, it is cute and everything, but even for children’s poems, its no Billy Idol or Robert Munsch.  Nevertheless, the contour drawings suit him and his poems oh-so-well.
