Artistic Inspiration Trip to SHMOG

I’ve been wanting to head to the Shanghai Museum of Glass for around 6 months now, and although it was a little small, it served it’s purpose in a bit of artistic inspiration. Here are some of my favorite shots.

Sneak Peek into a cukimber photoshoot

So I had a photoshoot this weekend, not my first, but my first organized/conceptualized collection.  Thanks to Q, Mami & Julian for helping me out.  Can’t wait to show you guys the results!

A Lesson Learned from a Graphic Designer Friend…

So, upon sending the initial flyer (that has been well received) that I made from the Spring Term of the Designer’s Corner at Jiashan Market, I asked my friend for feedback who happens to be a fantastic graphic designer.  She said the text on the bottom looked a little claustrophobic and after looking at it, she was totally right!  Here is the after (and final) flyer.  Had to amend to add lots of other designers too, and their gorgeous products!  I feel lucky to have access to them all in Shanghai!

 

And of course, the main part of the market, aka all your fresh vegetables, and locally produced treats, are available as well.

I’m getting a photoshoot done of all the new stuff I made while taking a respite from Shanghai. But I couldn’t resist and decided to post up the earrings I’m wearing today.

Style Icon

I’ve been feeling homesick nostalgic recently and just remembered that I was able to scan lots of old photos the last time I was home for a hot minute.  Included in those are photos of my mom, who has always been fabulously stylish.  Here is a homage of photos that literally took my breath away at times.  My dad took most of them.  Maybe artistic inspiration runs in my blood!

Jiashan Market

So as I’ve posted flyers, I think it’s high time you people see what I’ve been up to!

Jiashan market is made up of independent business owners/creative typed people getting together to sell food & beverages, and since I joined, some really great clothing, accessories, beauty products, and all sorts of knick knacks.  It finally didn’t rain when we were there so I took some snaps.  Enjoy!
