One


Sometimes when things are going down hill consistently and you can't seem to save or hold on to the things you love in life you have no other choice but to go back to where it all started. 
Find yourself, the passion and start all over.

In many ways this is a symbolic and personal piece for me.

I've always had this love/fascination but at the same time fear of the ocean. It's so magnificent and holds so many secrets and undiscovered wonders. 
 I can watch nature programs endlessly, especially the coral reefs and the deep ocean fascinates me.

I kind of feel one with the ocean.

Another book illustration in the making


I am currently completing another book illustration. It's been very interesting as I've never drawn a fox before, but always been a fan of their cute fluffy ears. I am anxious to see how this one turns out as there are still a way to go.
I originally started on a different piece of the same idea but it wasn't quite going as I wanted and decided to start over and get it just right.
It's done primarily in colour pencil (and a bit with markers). I am going to use pastels for the background and hoping it will go as planned.
I am working on a new type of paper for this one, Lana Calligraphy 250g/m2 paper, which seems to work alright for colour pencils.

KARL LAGERFELD and Tina Brown

KARL  has hit back at US magazine Newsweek and its editor, Tina Brown, after one its journalists - Robin Givhan - described him as "overrated" in a profile piece published in January. Brown previously worked as editor-in-chief at Vanity Fair, before joining Newsweek in 2010.
"First of all, Tina Brown's magazine is not doing well at all," he said in a press conference on Friday, WWD reports. "She is dying [professionally]. I'm sorry for Tina Brown, who was such a success at Vanity Fair, to go down with a shitty little paper like this. I'm sorry."
Brown shrugged off Lagerfeld's comments, responding with a Tweet: "The Kaiser doth protest too much! 'Diet issue?' Newsweek ads up 27 percent for Q1."
Newsweek also offered an official statement, defending its recent success.
"In the past year since Tina Brown took over as editor-in-chief of Newsweek, newsstand sales have increased 30 per cent year-on-year; advertising pages have seen a 27 per cent increase for the first quarter of 2012; we have over 2.2 million people engaged in our social media communities and, perhaps the most telling indicator of the renewed vitality of Newsweek, subscription renewals - in a consistent state of decline since 2005 - rose by 3 per cent last year," a spokesperson for the publication told Stylelist.

Chechen first lady unveils Islamic fashion in Dubai

"My designs are inspired by natural beauty and the grace of Arab women, to whom I dedicate my collection," Medni Kadyrova said, Chechnya's first lady, adding that she hoped the show in Dubai would be "the first step towards the organisation of many others in the region."

Kadyrova, has displayed her Islamic fashion collection to a captivated audience in Dubai, faithful to the politics of her husband who has sought to impose Islamic dress codes in the Caucasus republic.
More than 20 veiled Chechen models paced the catwalk in a Dubai palace on Saturday evening, clad in silk and carefully embroidered muslin dresses that covered them from head to toe but also managed to outline their figures.
The show culminated in a display of wedding dresses.
Organised by the Firdaws (paradise in Arabic) fashion house, launched by Kadyrova three years ago, it was the first such show for the label outside Chechnya.

"With their beautiful eyes and their slender figures, they actually look like houris," said Omar, a Palestinian working at the show, referring to the virgin angels who, according to the Koran, await faithful Muslims in the afterlife.
"But our young women who wear revealing tops and short skirts, will they agree to dress like this?" he asked.
Firdaws was founded by Kadyrova in 2009 "to lead Chechen women towards a new way of life, full of harmony and serenity, based on the national Islamic traditions," according to a statement by the show's organisers.

Kimono with attitude at Japan Fashion Week

AFP Relax News - The traditionally modest and freedom-inhibiting kimono is getting a new lease on life at Japan Fashion Week, with an edge of defiance and seductiveness.
Historically a garment whose multiple layers and tight wrapping have been viewed by some as restricting a woman's mobility and keeping her subservient to men, Jotaro Saito's kimono collection betrays expectations.
The style in his "Futurism" 2012-2013 autumn/winter collection remains graceful and true to form, but it is definitely not modest.
"Jotaro's kimono treads the line between the traditional style and the frisson of the entertainment quarter," said Tokiko Someya, 60, after the show. "That's what makes his kimonos so attractive."
A kimono-clad vocalist sang to pounding techno as models with spiked hair strutted down the runway at Wednesday's show, premiering Saito's chic and modern designs, a highlight of the twice-annual event featuring a range of designers that wraps up this weekend.
Models struck attitude-filled poses and flaunted the lines of their kimono, including an accentuated knot on their back.

Models struck attitude-filled poses and flaunted the lines of their kimono, including an accentuated knot on their back.
The knot, which keeps the garment together, is usually squashed as flat as possible and hidden underneath the "obi", a thick and ornately decorated belt. Saito's obi highlights the knot, proudly pushing it out.
In the "furisode" category, the elegant long-sleeved kimono style traditionally worn by unmarried women, Saito steps away from the usual demure floral patterns, striking out with bright red flowers on a black and silver background.
Where his forebears used pastel shades to denote the changing of seasons, Saito -- who hails from a line of kimono-dying artists in the historical capital Kyoto -- overlays nature with luxuriant geometry: his straight lines and chequered patterns combine with the oversized floral displays.
Saito's bold take is all the more curious in a country where the appearance and way a person wears their traditional-style kimono -- which Japanese have worn for hundreds of years -- is critically important.
The traditional garment was a staple for women and even men before the 20th century with many now wearing them just for special occasions.
But while he flouts the rules, Saito sticks closely to the ethos of the kimono, which refuses all but the briefest glimpse of a woman's skin, revealing only a sliver of wrist or ankle and the neck; the sexuality lying in what cannot be seen, rather than what can.
Saito draws the eye with bright-coloured lining, visible as the wearer's arms swish, or as the hem flicks on the turn.
Kimono doyen Someya said the textiles Saito employs add to the sensuality of the garment.
"The material itself is different," she said. "I like the texture and the quality, which allow the tails to settle beautifully when you walk."
Chiharu Nozaki, 33, said it was the vaguely futuristic patterns that appealed to her.
"I like classic styles of kimono, too, but I would like to wear something a bit different for informal occasions," said Nozaki, who wore an unconventional black leather kimono coat with a leopard pattern scarf.
