Super Books (a selection)

Those books I love and I always come back to. Beautiful books, funny books, super books I own and open on a regular basis just because it feels good.

  • Two books from an artist I really love (if I could I would buy everything she’s done) Aurélie William Levaux: “Sous ta barbe mon âme est morte” and “La Poutre de mon oeil.”

This August with my sister Victoire, we had the chance to exhibit some of our work in an old “lavoir” (washing place), which is a beautiful and very unique place. My sister (Instagram @vikyjune) is a young photographer. She also makes little notebooks and lovely things. I am very proud of her and also of me because it is my first real “adult” exhibition.

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.
