That's right, Design for Mankind--- still is BACK.

I remember learning about still life in like seventh grade, and painting that dang bowl of fruit OVER and OVER and OVER until I got it right, and even then my banana looked more like string cheese.



Alas, Mimi Jensen has finally managed to make still life look still-so-good.

I'm so in love with the composition here. I know I'm getting all fine artsy here, but I really can't resist noting her bold use of texture here. Do I love? Yes, I love.



Thanks, Mimi, and I can't wait to see the still life trend begin to rock 2008...

OMG Mimi--- I'm so flattered you stopped by! Thanks so much for visiting! :)

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
