I discovered the work of Cosmic Nuggets via Ello (remember Ello?), which is a great resource for creative inspiration that I often forget about. I’m really drawn to the linework and pattern in these illustrations, especially the black and white ones- featured below. Enjoy!

Food Scans is a collaboration between Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves. As they describe,
Food Scans is a series that showcases the beauty and bounty of seasonal fruits and vegetables throughout the year. Just as produce picked at peak flavor requires very little adornment on the plate, such was the case with these pictures. Simply placed on the scanner, we’re able to see every curve, nook, and cranny in incredible detail — and mirrored images allow us to explore symmetry, natural beauty, and the way imperfections and inconsistencies often become the most breathtaking examples of nature’s artistry.

Today I bring you the work of illustrator, designer, and writer Rachel Urguhart, or “pony gold” as she calls herself and her goods shop. I love her nod to the 1960s and 1970s in style and illustration that shines through her work. Below are a selection of my favorites. Be sure to check out her site and her shop as well.

In 2007, we began Three Potato Four through our love of found objects. We’re collectors, and to us, all products and belongings tell a story. We live by stories and we shop for stories. Through the years of buying and selling found vintage pieces, we were inspired to take some of these amazing objects and make them again in a new way for today.

A week or so ago I stumbled upon this article on The Cut on these previous unseen photos of Marilyn Monroe. These photos were discovered by the wife of photographer Andre de Dienes, who had cast Marilyn for an experimental nude project in 1945. 19-year-old Marilyn never did pose nude, but the images capture a vulnerability not often seen in photos of Monroe. The pho’s were shot on Malibu and Long Island beach trips, and using a car headlight in a Beverly Hills valley to light Monroe’s face, creating a sometimes surreal, and certainly experimental quality. Enjoy! And, if you’re in New York, these images are currently on view at the Steven Kasher Gallery. Enjoy!

I wrote about Camille about last year at this time, (here is the post in case you missed it) and you all loved the witch illustrations of hers I shared (especially on Pinterest!). Today I’m revisiting her work and sharing her hand series. As she describes, Camille’s work explores themes of mythology, fantasy, and the occult. Even with the simplicity of hand illustrations, these themes surface in a beautiful and simple way. Enjoy!
