Lack of inspiration? Check these websites, they are going to make you happy and full of new ideas! But don’t procrastinate too much and find time for action.

I spend a lot of time on this website… All these female artists are so inspiring! My passion? Reading the “About” part or the biography behind the visual.

Women Who Draw is an open directory of female* professional illustrators, artists and cartoonists. It was created by two women artists in an effort to increase the visibility of female illustrators, emphasizing female illustrators of color, LBTQ+, and other minority groups of female illustrators.

I went through (almost) every interview, this is how much I love the concept and the sincerity of this project. It is for everyone but if your are a creative person, you must take a look at it. Check also The Design Files if you have not already.

Extraordinary Routines is an interview project dedicated to discovering the daily routines of creatives.

Finding out how someone spends their day is not about glorifying productivity or finding the perfect routine, but rather shining a light on how people we admire really get through their day – the imperfect moments and hurdles, as well as the triumphs and achievements.

From morning rituals to sleeping habits, creative spaces to creative slumps, Extraordinary Routines highlights that it’s how we deal with the seemingly ordinary parts of our daily lives that makes them extraordinary.

Lifestyle, tips, design, fashion & style, culture… This website has a lot of ressources. The creator of Wit & Delight has very good taste in general and I like the way she writes. There are also some articles about motherhood and I think it is how I ended up there.

Wit & Delight became Kate’s way of considering all areas where style is concerned, serving as a platform for her thought process in developing her own personal style.

Today is about sharing some stuff I really really love. Enjoy!

  • First of all, please please watch these beautiful videos by Alexandra Levasseur, an artist from Canada. I love it so much I want the world to see it, it is so beautiful and full of poetry and captivating. Her paintings are georgous too but her videos are unrivaled.

 

  • Alexandra Muravey is an artist and graphic designer from Russia. She posted a project on behance called “Simple Pictures” in three parts and it is absolutely beautiful. Here is a selection of her work but I invite you to watch the full project because it is very original and  the colors are incredible.

  • Finally, a few paintings by Sul-Jee Scully. Born in Seoul and currently living in Indiana, you might have seen her work before but I could not resist. I discovered her a few days ago and I am so glad I did.

Finding peace in the countryside

Nothing makes me happier than being in the countryside. Smelling trees, touching fresh basil, feeding the cat, reading, painting, swimming in a friend’s pool, seeing a wild fox, listening to music all day long… Pure happiness.

Improvising an artist space at my brother’s house, while he is in the fields (july, big month for harvesting), I am having such a lovely time. A perfect place for creativity.

Lots of love.

Consortium

Two hours in a museum.

Le Consortium  is a contemporary art centre located in Dijon (France).

Its aims are the production and the exhibition of contemporary works, the enrichment of public heritage, and the promotion, the distribution and education as regards the arts and the ideas of today.

Another purpose of the Consortium is experimentation and reflection on the field of cultural engineering, and to manage cultural and artistic projects regarding new art forms.

Until the 5th of june, you can see “L’Almanach 16”. Without a specific topic and eighteen worldwide artists, this exhibition reflects the diversity of our present practices (videos, paintings, scultpures, installations…)
