We All Live in a Yellow... Tram!

Hello Lovelies!

 Yellow Tram in Lisbon, via pinterest.

I've been thinking (it happens, too). And guess who's gonna ride those beautiful Lisbon yellow trams? Well, me, very soon!

So while I'm away, blogging will slow down. I'll post on Mondays (moodboards) Wednesdays (beautiful butterflies found around the net) and Fridays (interesting links and flickr faves of the week).

I'll keep that slow rythm when I get back from Portugal, since I believe I need to find a balance between blogging (too much) and actually drawing and making art (not enough at the moment).

So what do you say? I think blogging three times a week is fair enough, right? And you'll get more interesting posts when I get more art-related content to share with you!

I also have a couple of projects (secret, hush) up my sleeve. And I want to share them with you, some time soon!

Much Warmth,

Vic from TeaButterfly.

Drawings - my best of 2010 video

Hello Lovelies!

 Insect In a Maze I - 2010. by (c) Vic Lipson.

Please check out this video on flickr to see my best 2010 drawings.

Some of them will appear as postcards in my shop very soon (I'm discussing princings with my printer as I write this) so that you can have a piece of my original work of art for an affordable 5 dollars!

Yay for affordable original insect art!

Happy Week Report (art exhibition and new projects inside)

Hello Lovelies!

playing with type: the title of my new drawing. (c) 2011 Lipson

I had quite an eventful week! A trip to Avignon, France and a weeks' long art collective exhibition, including two of my works (oil paintings).

Here is my latest drawing, in its blue envelope:

my new drawing: "Never Let Me Go". (c) 2011 Lipson

Also of note:

A series of coasters I've been drawing lately... (c) Lipson 2011

Here are some snapshots from the medieval city of Avignon (mainly the Virgin with Child, i dunno why):

Sandro Botticelli, Virgin and child, from an art poster found in Avignon. A current exhibition.

 Virgin with Child: in the streets of Avignon.

Another Virgin, another corner of Avignon.

Amazing wooden carved door - St-Pierre Church, Avignon.

I went to Avignon in order to meet a friend, a photographer who had an exhibition there, called "Oeuvre nocture" (Night Art Work).

The "Oeuvre nocture" (Night Art Work) poster. Avignon May 2011.

The "Oeuvre nocturne" exhibition consisted in night-lit shop windows displaying art of young and emerging artists. Here are my friend's Yoan Loudet photographs, as displayed (they are of Avignon's streets under heavy and unsual snow):

Last but not least: as an emerging artist, I really enjoyed reading (and I hope you will, too) this Pikaland interview. These are Summer's top tips be for people struggling to juggle their daily commitments/day jobs with their creative endeavours.

PS: I'm in love!

Tuesday's Butterfly is... "Amour"!

Hello Lovelies,

"amour" - collage by Vic Lipson (c) 2007

Today I'm pleased to share with you a butterfly collage I did a while ago.
I love the mix of color/patterns in it, and the meeting of a butterfly with the word "amour" (that's "love" in French).

Tuesday's Butterfly is... Perfection!

image found via pinterest

Hello Lovelies!

I really really love this home decor with framed winged coleopters. Oh! That perfect splash of red that "makes it" (without dominating). That hint of very warm yellow. The vintage mirror. And white lilies? Those are my favorite flowers! Elegant, classy and so very fragrant.

Of course, what I love most is the Wunderkammer (aka "cabinet of curiosities") Spirit of the framed insects. Gonna draw me some!

Have a nice Tuesday, and enjoy!

Hot & Dry

Hello Lovelies!

It is starking hot in here and i'm only wearing the most diminutive linen dress on. ouf ! We already had cherries (which are normally due in June) and every bloom is faded by now. I hate it when it's so hot and dry. so i'm escaping to the countryside (lots of tree shades there) with a friend for the day.

And you? What plans for the weekend?
