First of all, I had to show you a sneak preview of the newest Mary Prairie Contrary dress. I had some time to spare so spent some of it playing around with Photoshop.
I used to follow Sarah Seven on Etsy, but she up and dissapeared on me. Turns out she has a website for all of her amazing designs.

This is a sneak preview on my Prairie theme for May '11. It may just be the cutest dress yet!
Yesterday I saw a cyclist that beat all for fashion forward. There was an earthy looking fellow on one of those popular used racing bikes with the skinny tires and no brakes. The handlebars were very tall and u-shaped. Reminiscent of our banana seat kids bikes, here's the kicker.... he had a huge rack of elk horns mounted on the front that ran up the handlebars. I am not joking. If I see him again i'll try to snap a picture.

My recent fascination with prairie dresses got me thinking about the dust bowl. My family is from the Red River Valley and most of them still live there. My parents say that when they were kids, they could see the curve of the earth from their homes, which is no longer the case. The farmers planted shelter belts. I can see the curve of the earth from where I live in Washington, but it is because of the bay.

These are a couple of large scale paintings I did a few years ago. I really thought they were interesting but didn't do too many because they were too easy.
Below is a fashion illustrator named Stina Persson. I love her images, I want to do some in this style.
