inspiration : antonio lopez

March 10, 2014

i’ll admit, it took me a good long while to get into pinterest at all. i signed up and tried it out well over a year ago and just didn’t get it. i can’t recall what made me try again but the second time around, things clicked right away and now it has become an invaluable tool in helping me keep track of all sorts of things.¬†another perk is that if you really pick and choose who you follow and which of their boards you follow, you can chance upon some amazing things.

case in point, i discovered fashion illustrator antonio lopez¬†via pinterest. i can’t recall whose antonio pin i saw first but i was immediately in love. born in 1940′s puerto rico and raised in new york, antonio worked with karl lagerfeld and discovered legendary models such as jessica lange, jerry hall, tina chow and grace jones all while creating illustrations for WWD, vogue, interview and many more. his late sixties / early seventies vibe, his vivid use of color and glamorization of mundane beauty rituals hits a perfect note for me each time -

2478894441_8049034ea0_o- this last one hugely inspired my upcoming blog re-design … if only i had the cash to buy the rights to this pic! i would love to use it as my header image as it perfectly embodies an edgier & more grown-up version of my current bedroom scene. alas, i don’t have that sort of cash and instead went with a hand-drawn, custom font inspired by this pic for my new logo (coming soon!) -
