I´ve opened up a new store at Epla: LitTle blaCk cLoud

Currently it offers photographs in the size of 20 x 30 cm, mainly motifs of architecture and city scenes. Later I will add some graphic mixed media work.

Renreklame is the only Norwegian provider of green outdoor advertising. The concept is based on communicating a message, without doing it on the expense of the environment. The company is creating advertising through using what is already at hand in nature. They make what they call green graffiti or reverse graffiti, moss and ice advertising.

Green grafitti is also made as artistic wall murals, such as the one by Anna Garforth shown on the image below, found at GreenUpgrader. Anna Garforth has done many interesting and beautiful artworks using what is at hand in nature and combining it with a graphic expression. The artworks are shown on her homepage.

A quick browse revealed two other European companies offering green ads: Advantage Advertising (UK) , Green Grafitti (NL)

I found these nice works of art on Etsy. I love the naive simplicity of them. Rachel Austin lives in Portland Oregon, uses mixed medias and has an obsession with circles. These artworks are made on maps.

reMade USA is upcycling old leather clothes and scrap into bags and purses. The company is founded by product designer Shannon South “out of the concern with creating yet another product to add to the gazillions already on this planet”. I admire her.

Studio on Fire

Studio on Fire is a design/letterpress company in Minneapolis, USA. They combine production knowledge with a great sensitivity to design. I recently bought a poster (second image) at their online store. It is really tactile and very beautiful. I found them through a friend who ordered his business cards from them. This week I came across them again as I stumbled upon the Norwegian illustrator and graphic designer Cecilie Ellefsen who has contributed to a Studio on Fire calendar. They are also featured on Martha Stewart Weddings this month.

Quoted from

“based on his research of botanical drawings and photography the japanese artist macoto murayama created the collection ‘inorganic flora’: a new form of plant depiction that transcends accepted (common, usual) horizons of botanical illustration’.”
