Art: Colorful artwork by French illustrator Malika Favre (03)

 While surfing this morning on internet I saw this colorful popart work from the French graphic designer Malika Favre. Love her graphic work! Malika Favre's distinct and often very sexy style has made her one of the world's most sought-after commercial illustrators. In addition to her personal creations, she works for clients around the world. Publications such as the New Yorker and Vogue, as well as international brands like Sephora with whom she has a growing, fruitful relationship. In her London studio, Favre creates work that is characterized by a striking minimalism: no line, no shape, no color is wasted. But within this minimalism, she creates images of startling beauty and depth. For more interesting work from Malika, see THIS LINK Be Inspired .......

Romantic China Tableware by Miranda Kerr for Royal Albert

I adore this romantic tableware collection by Miranda Kerr for Royal Albert. Discover grace, catwalk glamour and a passion for afternoon tea with Miranda. It's inspired by her passion for peonies and butterflies and crafted from fine bone china. Created from treasured memories of afternoons spent sipping tea from her grandmother’s own Royal Albert tea set, this collection has a beautifully sentimental appeal.

Photography: David Bowie poses for his album 'Diamond Dogs'

Singer David Bowie poses with a large barking dog for the artwork of his 1974 album ‘Diamond Dogs’ in London. Photographed by iconic British photographer Terry O'Neill. Be Inspired ......
More about the photographer
Terry O’Neill is one of the world’s most collected photographers with work hanging in national art galleries and private collections worldwide. From presidents to pop stars he has photographed the frontline of fame for over six decades.
O’Neill began his career at the birth of the 1960s. While other photographers concentrated on earthquakes, wars and politics, O’Neill realised that youth culture was a breaking news story on a global scale and began chronicling the emerging faces of film, fashion and music who would go on to define the Swinging Sixties. By 1965 he was being commissioned by the biggest magazines and newspapers in the world.
Photographer Terry O'Neill
No other living photographer has embraced the span of fame, capturing the icons of our age from Winston Churchill to Nelson Mandela, from Frank Sinatra and Elvis to Amy Winehouse, from Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot to Nicole Kidman, as well as every James Bond from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig. 

He photographed the Beatles and the Rolling Stones when they were still struggling young bands in 1963, pioneered backstage reportage photography with David Bowie, Elton John, The Who, Eric Clapton and Chuck Berry and his images have adorned historic rock albums, movie posters and international magazine covers.
