In the midst of several interesting conversations tonight, high school lockers came up. I still have the number plate from mine on my key ring. The last day of senior year, my best friend and I sneaked a screwdriver in and removed them. (Apparently this makes me a vandal and a Bad Person but I knew that already.) I should have had a 10 year reunion last year but I’m not actually friends with anyone from high school anymore. I can’t say I particularly enjoyed high school on the whole. Still, I’m not quite ready to get rid of it.

Creating the Richly Textured Fabrics of an Apocalyptic World
Matt Reitsma is an accomplished textile artist, whose work spans from the beautifully delicate, to heavy painting, dyeing and distressing. His incredible artistry allows film and theatre costume designers to realize their vision with exquisite, custom fabrics. He has worked on such wonderful films as Memoirs of a Geisha, The Last Airbender, The Hobbit and Star Trek Into Darkness. Having recently worked with costume designer Michael Wilkinson on Man of Steel, the two have reunited to bring to the screen some of the most complex and stunning textured textiles for the film Noah.
MR on aging fabrics: I guess I come to a project with some techniques that I rely on, but definitely push the boundaries of those techniques or tweak them to suit the needs of the film.  An example would be for some of the principle characters I used a technique in which I bond two fabrics together which have opposite fiber contents and textures- for example cotton/acrylic boucle and silk habutae.
By bonding these fabrics together, I’ve created a fabric that can be manipulated by its content. I can dye the silk differently from the cotton/acrylic, as well as degrade the silk with an oxidizer and not affect the cotton/acrylic. In this way I could create an aged piece of yardage that appeared to be falling apart but still had the integrity to withstand construction and use

Hold me, Giant Carrot Body Pillow

The first thing he does when he gets home from work is flip on the stereo and fall into his chair, relaxing completely before remembering his laptop is in the bedroom. Too late, he thinks, as he wilts into the cushions, the stress of the workday leeching out, leaving the residue of sleepiness. He contemplates picking up the guitar, but knows in his core that’s as probable as actually doing the sketch-a-day challenge he bought a new journal for a month back.
Just fuck it, thinks the carrot.
