Bits & Pieces: Forever 500 Francs

1. I love France. And modern, graphic art. And lively, bold colors. And sometimes I even like typography. Needless to say, I also love Forever 500 Francs. Their series of international outlet portraits are not only adorable, they are a fantastic way to illustrate travel–highlighting the exotic elements of something as mundane as a power outlet perhaps provides an even more illuminating view of a new city than a map or photograph.

2. Browsing through the artists featured on the Art Department’s Illustration Division is my new favorite addiction. The Art Department curates and celebrates the work of commercial artists working in everything from photography to hair and make-up, but my fine art leanings make illustration my preferred division. I can’t decide on a favorite: maybe Jenny Bowers or Wayne Pate. Klas Fahlen is great as well.

3. Remember last week when I promised a second camera case DIY within “a few days”? I didn’t forget–I just got lazy! Keep an eye out for a new camera bag pattern this week, though.
