As an artist, it goes without saying that I take myriad inspiration from a variety of sources. My thoughts and moments are recorded in sketchbooks, on corners of napkins in restaurants, on post-its stuffed into my pocket, collected on Pinterest and pinned to actual boards in my studio. But lately, it would seem, no source is as all-encompassing, and indeed all lovely, as the wonderful world of Wes Anderson.
Naturally, the films are full of beautiful costuming and luscious wallpaper patterns, and much has been said of the strict but delightful color palettes, compositions, and narrative arcs. But in revisiting his films recently, I've been overcome with a joy so genuine it causes an involuntary smile, even when I'm watching, as I usually am, alone.
It is with this joy in mind that I'm presenting La Vie en Wes, a paper (and sometimes cloth) collection. Faithfully typeset in Futura, it seeks to spread this Mid-Century-styled bliss to you, your letter writing, and your jump-cut, flat-laid daily rituals.
