Quite of late, I find myself feeling rather blue...like wonderfully addicted to blue. It was most likely triggered by my many trips to Japan surplus stores here in Baguio and La Trinidad. We were hunting for used furniture we could diy to fit in the aesthetics of our new all-white place (yup we've moved...yet again), but i got stuck staring at those lovely white-blue porcelains. They were just so pretty! And when my artist friend Fara told me about this Japanese indigo dyeing workshop happening at Chaya, i felt it was quite serendipitous. I just got to attend it.
I cant wait to sew my tenugui into something, well will show you that on another post instead.
1) Tim Burton's Big Eyes - art, scandal, controversy and paintings of big-eyed waif. The story is based on the life of artists Walter and Margaret Keane. Walter achieved popularity for the Big Eyes paintings in the 1950s...only to be brought to court by his ex-wife who claimed to be the original painter. Years of "painting custody battle" ensued.
2) Disney's Into the Woods - based on what I've read so far, Into the Woods is originally a musical and Disney is now turning it into a movie which, as we would expect, might take a different turn from the original story somewhere in the movie. Though am not very fond of the Act II of the musical, "The once upon a time...later, am a huge sucker for anything fairy tale so let's see how much of this movie get Disney-fied.
3) The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby - because I just love everything James Mcavoy, period
