ART

Bleaq introduces us to the incredible patterned illustrations by Daria Hlazatova (as pictured above).

AGO announces ‘Mystical Landscapes’ major exhibit of works by famous artists. This looks to be fantastic and will be running Oct 22nd through to Jan. 29th, 2017 in Toronto. Another exhibit starting soon at the AGO in Toronto that’s worth checking out is Outsiders: American Photography and Film, 1950s–1980s.

TATTOOS

An interview with tattoo artist interview with Kirsten Holliday of Wonderland Tattoo in Portland.

A few years ago I attended a special screening of the Sailor Jerry documentary put on by Sailor Jerry Rum. It was pretty fantastic. If you haven’t seen it (or even if you have), for a limited time you can watch the full length Hori Smoku Sailor Jerry documentary online.

STYLE

Current style muse: Miss Pandora. Cannot get enough of these looks in Season of the Witch (Eiii! All the Vali Myers inspiration!), Art Nouveau Revival, and Biba, Biba, Biba.

Loving these photos from Hello the Mushroom:  Style – Dear Darkness.

This outfit post from Stephanie of FAIIINT is just perfect. Outfit – Pewter.

FILM/TV

The Witch‘s director explains why our ancestors found witches so scary.

Can I also say how frustrating it is that this film was shot in Northern Ontario but isn’t playing where I live? ARGH. Something further to add to the city-to-do-list.

Did arthouse horror hit The Witch trick mainstream US audiences?

And I predict jaunty velvet capes as beachwear this Summer thanks to a recent Portlandia sketch.

    Thanks for the shout out! It was ridiculous how quickly it sold out after the io9 mention!

    And Bleaq – I love her blog! I love the artists that she features and I love that there is someone out there with no particular agenda–like, not a gallery or a magazine or something like that, who profits from whatever they might be talking about–who is talking about art and actually crediting the artists. And she is super sweet, too!

    …and holy smokes, Miss Pandora! The Biba one is killing me! I don’t follow any fashion blogs anymore, but she would definitely make me change my mind about that!

      No problem, and ya that’s fantastic it did! <3 Thanks for helping me connect with Becky to secure one. And yes absolutely agree with you regarding Bleaq, a very refreshing take for sure! #fangirl 😀 I follow a few fashion blogs, they can be quite good fun even if they do leave me covet'ing beautiful impracticalities 😉

    Love your link round-ups, I always bookmark ’em so I can check all the links out when I have the time! 🙂

    I’m stoked about ‘The Witch’ as well, unfortunately I have to wait a few more months before it comes out here in Europe 🙁

      Aww thank you! That’s great to hear! 🙂 And ya I remember that always being a detriment when I was living in the UK with film releases coming out several months after the fact. I get the feeling you still might being seeing it before me as it looks likes it’ll be out of the cinema by the time I get to the city. D’oh!
