Lucian Freud dies at 88

An extraordinary figure painter, Lucian Freud died in London yesterday. I was especially obsessed with is paintings during my years at college, and celebrated my final year in 1994 with a trip to New York to see his solo show.

Dear Photograph

So simple and lovely.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
