Laura Graham

It just so happens that one of my most favorite photographers is also be a dear(deer) friend. Laura Graham makes a mean french macaroon, takes amazing photos AND now also is a fabulous actor as well. She doesn't like to wear shoes but likes to make them and has done just about everything there ever was to do in this world. I think the fact that she is the female version of the Dos Exquis guy helps her create such beautiful and eerie photos. Am I rambling? Yes. My point is? To tell you to follow her blog and therefore have a shot at winning this fabulous print. Win win situation if you ask me... Check her out at and look for the Birds of Fortune post to enter to win the Birdtree print...Yay!

Your monsters are just like mine

Can we talk about how effing amazing these are? Wow. They are so creepy and fabulous. His use of color against the blonde wood makes me swoon, along with his eye for knowing when to leave areas rough and when to make them finished. Also the fact that you can see gaps where the pieces are put together adds to the overall spooky vibe. Not to mention the titles...le sigh. This is the kind of stuff that makes me want to drive to my freezing cold studio at 1:11am on a late snowy night and just make things. Amazing things...
