Obsessive Consumption


This post probably is more interesting for the European and Asian Pacific readers than it is for you US readers...because many of the big blogs already wrote a bit about Obsessive Consumption by Kate Bingaman-Burt, in which you will find a selection of three years of Kate's delightful ink drawings of everyday items and purchases.


Eversince I received the book it's been laying on our kitchen table and while drinking a coffee I scroll through the book and am constantly happily surprised by the new illustration that catches my eye...  a great book, that makes you THINK!

When I started Bloesem in 2006 I was living in Toronto and it was here were I met the lovely Arounna during the one-of-a-kind show. I fell in love with her designs immediately and when we started talking we instantly became friends. She even invited my family and me over to their gorgeous loft, which John, Arounna's husband almost completely renovated by himself. But soon this loft became to small and Arounna and John decided to move to a home, studio and shop all in one in one of the funkiest neighborhoods from Toronto, unfortunately I haven't been there yet, but seeing these images makes me want to go back to Toronto real soon...
