Ken Fulk’s closet in November issue of Architectural Digest is the epitome of rich and eclectic design. He goes against the grain by utilizing antique bookcases and a brass clothing rack to replace the all to common closet kits of today. He embraces English details with a large antique box on stand hidden behind an unusual antler upholstered chair, these being reminiscent of the once popular royal hunts. So why not defy the expected and harness the old world culture by embracing antique furniture in order to diversify your own closet?

Andrew Myers

Over the weekend while spending time with friends, I came across a video displaying a local artist of Laguna Beach, Andrew Myers. The film showcased his creativity and innovated forms of medium. From screws and paint to bronzed sculptures, as well as the more classic oil on canvas. Andrew reveals his versatility as an artist with the multitude of surfaces used for his pieces. andrewmyers

Myers blends modern material with classical figurative technique featuring a universal subject matter that is prevalent throughout his work.  It is his unification of these three characteristics that results in the innovative and modern artwork that captivates viewers and has been so highly acclaimed nationwide.

Andrew starts with a base, plywood panel, and then places pages of a phone book on top. (Cool fact: He’ll use pages from his subjects’ local area.) He then draws out a face and pre-drills 8,000 to 10,000 holes, by hand. As he drills in the screws, Myers doesn’t rely on any computer software to guide him, he figures it out as he goes along.

Most people are drawn to the portraits because they have something different about them (from a distance especially). Seeing them in person is a whole different feel than seeing the photograph. They have a sense of depth that the photo can’t capture.” – Andrew Myers
