'spread your love' by Hamed Kohan

I cycled to work for the first time today, whoop whoop! It was great, felt so refreshed by time I got to work. 1000 times better than catching the tube in.

I stumble across this article this morning on the design boom website about these amazing tyres with hearts on designed by Hamed Kohan for the 'seoul cycle design' competition. I want them, I hope they manufacture these. My tyres are looking a bit crusty anyway.

'spread your love' by hamed kohan from Iran is one of the shortlisted design entries from more than 3000 participants in our recent designboom competition,'seoul cycle design 2010', organized in collaboration with seoul design foundation.

The tire design features heart-shaped knobs that create playful tracks on the streets.A series of corresponding bike racks are distributed throughout the city.

Raggy Dolls





Way Way back in April I received my dolls I had commissioned Cherry Hurren to make. I would have posted this sooner but I've been having a lot of problems with my blog. I have decided to go back to using blogger for now because they won't allow my to publish the blog directly to site, oh well maybe I'll think of a better solution soon.

Here are the pics of the beautiful dolls Cherry made for me, I have given them a home on my wicker Peacock chair. All the little details on them are great, the small zips and the sun glasses are so cute, the stripe doll's top was drawn by hand with fabric pens, Amazin! You can really tell Cherry put a lot of effort into them.

Daily Drop Cap

You may have been reading my blog regularly and perhaps noticed some beautiful Capital letters adorning the front of my paragraphs. Unfortunately I didn't craft these myself, they are by the wonderfully talented Jessica Hische, who has created a blog called Daily Drop Cap, each day she publishes a new hand crafted decorative Capital letter for anyone out there to use in there blogs. I love the idea and intend to use them in the near future. Check out the blog here: Daily Drop Cap





Dazed Decade Drawn Out

My entry to the Dazed and Confused competition 'Dazed Decade Drawn Out'. Slightly different style to usual but I really enjoyed doing it, might try more like this!

Harvey Nicks Raggy Dolls

I've been blogging less and less frequently due to being so busy and remembering posts I meant to do a while back so this one's a little late. I saw these rag dolls in Harvey Nicks last year some time, they are full sized and really lovely, dressed in clothes from the store. It was quite inspirational for me to see these as at the time I was making my own doll for the 'Momiji Couture contest'. I hope to make more dolls in the future hopefully of some of my own characters, until then I leave you with these beauties!

Update: These dolls were created by Cherry Hurren, click to see more of her fabulous work
