Room 1208

Monday, May 10, 2010
I bet there are a few people who are on your inspiration list (someone who is fascinating and you can't help adoring their work). For me one of them is a New York based artist Kate Neckel  who did a drawing on a wall of the Ace Hotel in NY City a few months ago . This fascinating project took place in room 1208. She used black acrylic paint markers and drew the stories of the owls, birds, people and objects in the Ace while friends and the hotel staff where popping in, giving her more inspirations with their favourite stories.

What a great project! I could spend hours staring at this wall, retelling those stories in my own way!
True creativity is such a gift!

See you late my Loveliest!
