New Studio “Chalkboard”

I was reading something awhile ago and there was this quote in it that had quite an impact on me. I wanted to put up in my studio for awhile to see a reminder of whatever this quote said.

(Note: this blog post is not about this vague, unmentioned quote.)

I have a corkboard in my studio, and normally I’d just scribble a quote down and pin it up.  Lately, the corkboard is overflowing with inspiration/reference images for a collection that I’m scheming on in my head.  The quote would definitely get lost in that visual overload.

I decided that a chalkboard would be cool, so I could change the quote/phrase/reminder at will.  I don’t actually have a chalkboard, but I am resourceful.  I found my pile of vinyl records that served as decorations in an old apartment.  I painted the center of one black and grabbed my sidewalk chalk. Easy!  In fact, it was so easy and exciting that once I figured out that it’d work, I immediately scribbled down one of my favorite Alice in Wonderland quotes (and promptly forgot the original quote that inspired this whole chalkboard project).

Fashion vs. Style

I’ve been looking at a lot of street style books lately.  One of the books I’ve been into is Facehunter by Yvan Rodic.

I’m a visual person, so I’m a sucker for photo books.  I also love a lot of the quotes that Yvan Rodic includes throughout this book.  They are small reminders of the big reasons I am a designer.

“The only secret is to wear what you feel and what fits you. Fashion is what you buy, style is what you are.” -Yvan Rodic

I love that.  I live that.
