I'm lolle (Lorenza) and I'm a freelance illustrator and artist based in Italy. I have been drawing since I was 5 years old. I always loved to draw, to paint, to create objects, plush and clothes and I can't imagine my life without pencils, markers, brushes, acrylics... 
I use my illustrations to describe my world, a messy and pinky world populated by furry monsters, bizarre plushies, spooky dolls, cats, stylish babes, cosmic mermaids, pastel unicorns, colorful toys, ghost stories, flying bats, fairytales, striking clothes, pop culture, candies, cakes, dreamlike movies, fantasy books, and more...


Have you always been creative and artistic?

^_^ well, in my family there's always been something creative… my parents had an handicraft shop for a while, and they both have always loved to draw…my father attended the art school before me, and he keeps to "make art" even now.

also, other members of my family have an artistic flair, like my grandmother, my two aunts and my sister…My born house is full of their canvas…I've grown in this creative and artistic atmosphere, so for me it was really natural to approach this amazing world… 

How would you describe the style of your work?

I will define my art-style as a messy and pinky kids room, full of toys, plushies and fairytales but with a spooky side, peopled by ghost stories, monsters under the bed, flying bats… 'cause these are the things that represent me better! and my "art" it's my way to introduce myself to the world! 

What’s in your pencil case and what’s your favorite tool?

My pencil case is actually a big brown shoes box (decorated with a lot of pesky ghosts)! 'cause I've got too much tools for a simple case!!! like: watercolors, watercolors pencils, uni-posca, markers of any sort, colored pens, pilot, acrylic paint, brushes, plastic gems, and more… 

Who is your favorite superhero?

I usually prefer the villains to the superheroes, but If I have to choose one I'll choose Batman. 'cause he's more similar to a villain then a hero, and his enemies are the best enemies ever! I even love the gothic atmosphere of his world and of his stories! 

If you could have one super power what would it be?

I'm a really curious person, so I always wanted to be able to read minds!!!hihihi

Where do you look for inspiration?

I took my inspiration everywhere: on fashion magazines, in children's books, in the movies, in art and illustration books, in the toys stores, in the street markets, in the haunted houses, dark forests and fairy woods ….

Who are your favorite artists or comic book authors?

Oh, there are so many. Those who have more influence on my works are danny brito, ambird, kelly k, vladimir stankovic, looney lolita, wishcandy, miss van, dead spider hands and many more… I'm not so skilled into comic art, but this is a great passion of my boyfriend, so he's introducing me in this amazing world… he got me to know the wonderful Neal Gaiman that I simply adore, I really love Sandman!! I also like Top Ten and Watchmen by Alan Moore, and obviously Batman!! oh and even Brian Lee O'malley's Scott Pilgrim!!

"It’s Paris! The best thing about living here, is that it’s Paris. It’s a wonderful city and it’s certainly not a cliché. It’s inspiring with all its beautiful spots, its cultural and historical identity. What can I say? It’s frenchy in all the best aspects. It isn’t Tokyo nor New York but it definitely learn you elegance." 



View Paris City Guide in a larger map


Shop

If you search fabric, you would find it in Montmartre (Métro Anvers). You certainly already know this place, because it’s in Amelie Poulain. Besides being one of the best panoramas of Paris, it’s also the most famous fabric market. The two big franchises are Marché Saint Pierre and Reine but all around there are dozens of little craft supplies and fabric stores where you would definitely find what you are searching for.

Furthermore, my favourite address is a little store near Châtelet called La Droguerie. I go there when I need crafts especially for accessories. You will find anything from feathers to pearls. 



Be Inspired

The metropolitain. You could say it’s convenient because one take the subway every day, I prefer to say it’s constant. There, inspiration strikes me without even trying. Sometimes it’s a super style girl with clothes I want to reproduce. Sometimes it’s only one little details of the outfit of a lady. Sometimes it’s the story I imagine for this business man. Sometimes it’s a color that charms my eyes. Sometimes it’s just the feeling I’m in the core of the life in Paris. 

Eat & Drink

In Paris we’re fond of foreign food so you’ll easily found some great burger spot : one of my favorite Le Camion qui fume the first food truck to settle in Paris. But if you want to eat a French specialty I recommend Breizh Café : it’s known as the best Breton crêperie. It’s not expensive and very tasty !

If you like sweet-savory I highly suggest the Charentaise, you’ll love it.


 Craft

The nearest public park. When spring comes and the sun begins to show up, public parks in Paris are the best place where to escape from city life. I love to filled a big bag with craft supplies and I go to the park down my street : La Vilette, I sit in front of the little river on the grass and spend my afternoon there. 

See Something Special

Not mandatory but definitely funny : you could visit the Cimetière Père Lachaise. Yes it is a cemetery, and yes I said funny. It’s a place of pilgrimage for the fans of Jim Morison, you could see the sphinge statue on the grave of Oscar Wilde and kiss it, or celebrate the grave of the scientist who was the first to encourage humans to eat potatoes in Europe. 


Pick Up A Souvenir

Obviously you will find really easily some materials souvenirs to come home with, like a little wired Eiffel tower and it’s pretty cool : I do have one on my keys. But the most beautiful thing to take home with you if you’re not a Parisian, it’s the memory of a picnic on the banks of the Seine, on a mild summer night. Parisians go there every night from June to September (mostly) especially on Saturday. There would be a lot of people, laughing and drinking, there is always someone who brings his guitar, don’t be afraid to talk to them:  Parisians are actually friendly.

Craft Room Tour

Posted April 10th, 2014 10:00

Visit http://dreamquiltcreate.blogspot.com

We head behind the scenes at Dream Quilt Create to tour Cynthia's amazing craft room in Sacramento, California which her husband made as a Christmas present.


"My favorite thing about my space is the table.  It is sturdy and rustic and I just love it!!!!  It makes a beautiful background when I photograph my work for my blog."




Tell us about your space?
My craft room is in the Sacramento area, northern Califonia.  I have lived here almost 3 years. My craft space is in a spare bedroom on the second floor of our house.  It has a big picture window looking out on the street and another window on the side, allowing for a lot of natural light during the day.  I have the room all to myself.  The room is 10 feet by 10 feet, with no room to spread out on the floor.  If I need to, I can use the hall floor. I use this space for a sewing room.

What have you done to make your space cosy, beautiful or inspiring?
My husband designed the space for me as a surprise and it was my Christmas gift.  He bought all the furniture and a few decor pieces to make it extra cozy and cute.  I can see some of my favorite fabric collections and my favorite things such as twine, washi tape, buttons, a sculpture my mother made, some family photos, etc.

How do you keep organized?
I have little bins and containers to keep me organized, and some red and some white Ikea boxes.

Which are your favourite possessions and are there any of your own creations on display?
The Union Jack quilt behind my sewing table is one of my creations.

Where do you look for inspiration?
For inspiration, I have a blog roll on my blog and I follow some other blogs on Blogsy.  I look to other quilters for inspiration, and some of my quilt books.

If you had three wishes, what would you do to make it the dream space?
My craft room is my dream craft space.  Not only did my husband design it and surprise me with it at Christmas, but he bought me a dream machine Bernina 750 QE which has made my sewing experiences so much better :)

Recreate the look with Nerd Burger's Lego knuckle duster tutorial:



How would you describe your style?

My day to day style really depends on what mood I’m in, I’ve found that I enjoy the spontaneity of life and I like to express myself as such. From a dreary winters Pastel goth, to bubbly summertime fairy kei outfit, I’ve always found fashion to be the ultimate form of expression. I always like to experiment and mix ‘n’ matching my geeky sides with different nostalgia and fandoms (not limited to, but generally limited to 80’s and 90’s).

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

My Snow White kitty dress. This is not your normal Snow White Dress oh no, this is a very special dress as all the faces have been photo-shopped to feature various adorable kittens in all their purry glory. This is a dress that never ceases to draw smiles in even the most depressing of days.

Who are your style icons?

I have always looked up to Cyndi Lauper and Molly Ringwald for their exciting and unique fashion. I also get a lot of inspiration from Japanese street fashion. The louder and brighter the better, as I’ve never been one for subtleties.

Do you have any favourite designers?

Jeremy Scott, Spank, Black Milk and 6% Dokidoki are all among my favourites but there are also a lot of independent designers on Etsy and around my home city that I cannot help but to swoon over. I really like bright colourful clothing with big statement pieces choc full of geek and nostalgia. You throw some pixels on it, maybe a feature a cartoon from my childhood or comic book character? You bet I’ll throw money all over it.

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

I love to support handmade and local crafters so I buy a lot from independent designers I find and though Etsy and social media. I also really enjoy second hand shopping and to go rummaging at markets every week for rad toys and clothing. I’m a big supporter of shopping local, as I know how hard it is as a struggling jewellery maker to complete with the online market.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

Every outfit I wear has something created by me. I love to make geek and kawaii themed jewellery and accessories to match outfits. I have recently started learning to sew clothing and cannot wait to buy vintage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bed sheets to turn into skirts. In the last few years I have dived head first into the cosplay scene too, enjoying the atmosphere and the looks on peoples faces when they realise that their favourite comic book character has come to life.

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?   

You never know how much awesome can come from wearing an outfit that you thought you’d never wear. There is no greater thrill than wearing an 80’s prom dress to the grocery store and then sitting on a tram surrounded by strangers as your skirt takes up multiple seats. Though regularly I’ve been drawn to the old staples (ie: leggings and a t-shirt), there is never any reason you can’t add a little flair to even the most basic outfits. By customising your look by adding a necklace made from a vintage toy or a brooch of your favourite movie, it shows people that this is not only an outfit but part of who you are and what you represent. Fashion should always be as such, a reflection of who you are on the inside and thus in being true to yourself, you are never truly out of place.  

Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

I love to read a huge range of blogs of all different types of fashion to give me ideas. I love the 70’s rock vibe of Lark And Lace, the crochet kawaii of Twinkie Chan and the huge range of street fashion from Tokyo Fashion.

Mab Graves is a Contemporary Pop-Surrealist artist and illustrator living and painting in a converted 1800’s tavern in a small corner of the dusty Midwest.

Her work is inspired deeply by fairy tales and old classic literature. She adores narrative.  She blames this on her parents who unrelentingly read aloud to her and her three sisters as small, impressionable children. Mab’s passion for creation has been an overwhelming obsession since she could grip a crayon, at about the age of 6 months. She spent her childhood and teen years adoring graphite and pen mediums (but being very suspicious of paints) until she discovered painting in early 2009, and then it was all over. 

A self-taught artist, Mab’s work has been shown is galleries both nationally and internationally. Her work has been sold in more than 56 countries. Mab’s art has appeared in many print articles in books and magazines and in 2013 she published her first book of paper dolls with Dover Publishing.  She currently lives, works and dreams in Indianapolis, IN.


Have you always been creative and artistic?

Oh yes! I have been obsessed with drawing ever since I could grip a crayon. It utterly fascinated me as a child and has stayed with me my whole life - but it’s constantly evolving. I didn't start painting till about 5 years ago.

How would you describe the style of your work?

My style is affectionately called “Lowbrow” or “Pop Surrealism”. It’s a very classical, detailed painting style with dashes of 60’s “big eyes” culture, cartoons, anime and j-pop in here and there.

What’s in your pencil case and what’s your favorite tool?

My pencil case has mostly Alvin Draft/Matic 0.3 pencils and Pentel brush pens. My work usually involves more wet mediums than dry ones though! For instance the Crafterella piece I made for you guys contained graphite, ink, art marker, watercolor, gouache and acrylic. I love to mix mediums because each one does something special ^_^

Who is your favorite superhero?

I have to say I’m a pretty big fan of Hellboy. I love the anti-heroes and I LOVE Mike Mignola’s illustrations!

If you could have one super power what would it be?

The power to heal people ^_^

Where do you look for inspiration?

It hugely depends on the project I’m working on. I love to look to books, fables, and old manga for inspiration in my downtime though ^_^

Who are your favorite artists or comic book authors?

Can I choose comic book Illustrators? James Jean is tops for me. Also Yoshitaka Amano and Clamp. Other non-comic book illustrators I love are Gennady Spirin, Iassen Ghiuselev, Olga Dugina, and Kinuko Craft!

"Tampa has an amazing and extremely diverse culture, kind of like a melting pot of different ethnicities. You can see the diversity in the architecture, the restaurants, museums, theatres, musical venues, and the different Ethnic Society Clubs with in the Bay Area." 



View Tampa City Guide in a larger map


Shop

I am partial to small local businesses, I like that there are big “craft and sewing” stores where you can purchase things, but small and local is the way to go here. Top Place is an Upcycle Arts and Crafts Thrift store; The Upcycle Trading Company. The Owners of the store, Morgan Abdallah and Michelle Stolz, had a vision and a goal to bring craftiness to everyone at a price that everyone (even children) can afford. They offer a material exchange program; there is Pay as you wish pricing as well and is a fabulous place to purchase handmade items and gifts from created and handcrafted by LOCAL ARTISTS! 

This is the only resource in the Tampa Bay Area for Indie Artist, designers and crafters to find materials that can be repurposed and made anew.  They have supplies for just about everything, beading, scrapbooking, sewing, knitting, crochet, needle point, embroidery, paint and fine art supplies and tools. The Upcycle Trading Company can be found here.

If you want to sell your work, I'd recommend Upcycle Trading Company, the Ybor Saturday Morning Market and local flea markets, though there are several shops that feature and sell local artists work. It’s really nice to live in a community that shows support for the Arts and Craft minded. Appreciation and support is always welcome, for some their creative talent and what they earn from it, is all they have to live off of.


Be Inspired

The best part of the Tampa Bay Area in my opinion is Ybor City. Once known as the Cigar Capitol of the world and is Registered as a National Historic Landmark, Ybor City has something for everyone to do, see and experience. It is Tampa’s version of the French Quarter; there are parades, festivals, Saturday morning markets, the Ybor City Trolley, Saturday morning yoga, night clubs, and historical buildings. Of course I cannot forget to mention you can take the trolley to Channel Side and watch a hockey game, visit the Florida Aquarium, watch the ships leave the port of Tampa and find outstanding food choices. Within 15 minutes you can drive and see a football game, see the Florida Orchestra, and visit the Tampa Museum of Art, the list could go on and on. If you want to view more about our little gem of a city, here is the link.

In terms of attractions in Tampa and the surrounding; there is the Tampa Theater, it was built in 1925 and is supposed to be haunted. We have amazing night clubs and restaurants; the Columbia is a family owned Spanish eatery that was built in 1905. One of the more famous night clubs is The Castle in Ybor, it caters to the Gothic scene, you never know what you will see or who you will meet, it is said to be haunted also. The building the club resides in was the Ybor City Labor-Temple built in 1930. 

Then you have the larger “Commercial” attractions, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry), a short jaunt and you can be at Gatorland in Orlando, we also have the Seminole Hard Rock Casino. Our city offers walking tours for history, ghost tours for haunted places and we also have some stumbling drunk good time “Pub Crawls”. In an effort to save the manatees, TECO (Tampa Electric Company) has a power plant called Big Bend. The warm water that runs off from the power plant is a great environment for manatees to come to during the colder months and just hang out in the warmth. TECO, opened the Manatee Viewing Center so people can come and view the manatee’s up-close and not harm the nearly endangered species. See what it’s all about here.

Inspiration comes in many forms in this town, buildings, sculptures; we have a few cemeteries that are 100+ years old, the Bay, the beaches, the museums, and the people who live here. Really, being a resident, all you have to do is walk out the front door of your home.  

Photo opportunities are vast and plenty around here. Ybor’s historic buildings, our beaches, downtown Tampa, Saint Pete has an Art district with Local artists work on the buildings, there are Cemeteries, the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Dominique Martinez, owner of Rustic Steel has created these larger than life sculptures using recycled materials. The sculptures are located in various places in Seminole Heights (Historic area). Our community college has these gargantuan snails on display right now; the snails are part of an effort to recycle in our community.  


Eat & Drink

I have celiac, which means no Wheat, rye, barley or oats (yup, it’s really challenging going out to eat);  my husband and I love to go to Hamburger Mary's, this is a hamburger joint that features a Drag show. The food is great, the chef comes out and talks to us about my dietary problems, and the show is outstanding! Taco Bus is an amazing Mexican restaurant, and Pizza Fusion, Sky Point; Pizza Fusion offers Gluten Free pizza (and the pizza is AWESOME) they also have a GF dessert offering, which you do not find often when you are out to eat!!! 

Not being limited to Gluten Free foods we have many family owned Latino and Hispanic restaurants;  there’s also La Creperia Café, Gaspar’s Grotto, Bern’s Steakhouse, Sushi places, southern barbecue, Ethiopian, Jamaican, Irish and German food choices. With the different ethnic backgrounds in this and the surround areas, two things will happen 1. You will never go hungry and 2. You can find just about any flavor your palette may crave.  


 Craft

Tampa has many great places to just sit and relax and get into your craft zone. Ybor Centennial Park, Al Lopez Park, Hillsborough River State Park, and here are restaurants with outdoor seating. I couldn't list all of the outstanding places to craft, there are so many hidden gems and known spots that make you just want to create!

There are several craft clubs including Scrap & Sew in Odessa, Painting With a Twist in Tampa, Upcycle Trading Company in St. Pete (weekly sewing classes, workshop space for personal projects and a great place to meet up and get crafty) and Morean Arts Center in St. Pete.
I have a friend, Doug “Fire Bug” Taylor, who is a Glass Blower at the Morean Arts Center “Hot Shop”, he does amazing work, and they do have demos and workshops.                      

As with many cities, I am sure all you have to do is find a spot, start crafting and people will approach you about your project. I have had people talk to me at the laundry as I am painting and waiting for the clothes to dry, we share tips, secrets and experiences in the media of our choices. It isn't hard to find crafty people in our city.


See Something Special

Quirky and odd, well, in this area nothing is really quirky or odd... I prefer to call it eclectic, that's a better way to describe the history and beauty of our city. I will direct you to a place about 45 minutes from Tampa, in a town called Lake Wales there is a place called Bok Tower Gardens.

Bok Tower itself is a carillon bell tower, built of pink marble and sits on Iron Mountain one of the highest points in Florida.  The”Singing” tower houses 60 carillon bells which grace the visitors of the gardens with a recital daily.   The tower and the grounds/gardens are the vision of Edward Bok; One of Edward Boks most notable quotes is "Make you the world a bit better or more beautiful because you have lived in it.”. You can read more about Edward Bok and his amazing creation here.


Pick Up A Souvenir

Souvenirs to take home, well stop by the Upcycle Trading Company first, buy scrapbooking material, when you think you have enough, pick out some more. Then grab your camera, and photograph anything and everything you can. The memories of the Tampa Bay area will be more meaningful than any trinket, t-shirt or hat you could purchase.

Craft Room Tour

Posted April 3rd, 2014 10:00

Visit http://www.vanillacraftblog.com/

We head to Auckland, New Zealand to explore Harri's adorable craft room in her bedroom.


"I love that it is very spacious but still a very big desk and workspace. I recently just bought a trestle table for a bigger desk space and I’m loving the space I have to spread out a project (or a few) as well as display my favourite things like my ever growing magazine collection and millions of pens and pencils."




Tell us about your space?
My craft room is in my house is a urban suburb of waterfront city Auckland - known as the City of Sails in New Zealand. I’ve lived here for about 2 years but i’ve lived in Auckland my whole life. My craft space is actually my bedroom in my family’s home. I don’t think that it doubles as anything because my bed is equally important for my crafty/blogging space because it’s sometimes the best place for inspiration…..dreaming!! It’s also lovely to curl up on with my laptop to plan out a new craft or blog post. This is my room, where I do everything! I do all my crafts in here unless it’s a building project or painting because my room is carpeted and we don’t want the carpet changing colour.

What have you done to make your space cosy, beautiful or inspiring?
I have a cosy colour theme of white and wooden and let my belongings give colour because i’m a stationery fanatic and it’s always very colourful.

How do you keep organized?
I guess it’s comes quite naturally but lots of boxes and pretty belongings make it easy. I guess the things that I buy are always suited to my theme and are quite tidy but I love looking at ‘stuff’ and i would die if I went minimalistic. I just love designs and colour and prettiness to much. I’m just a lover of pretty things.

Any tips & tricks for organising supplies?
Go have a look on my blog, it’s full of it but using nice storage boxes or covering shoe boxes makes so much of a difference. But using lots of pen cups, and pretty things to organise your supplies makes you proud to show them off to your room to give it personality

Which are your favourite possessions and are there any of your own creations on display?
My favourite possession is probably either my DSLR camera or my pens and pencils collection. I have some of my creations on display like my instagram grid wall, sewing machine restyle and diy chalkboard cat.

How do you organise your inspiration and ideas?
My ideas and inspiration are kept in a big journal full of cut outs, prints, messy scrawl and colour but I also do lots of organising on my laptop and on pinterest. I have a list of ideas in my journal as well as in random places in my head and on notepads throughout my room

Where do you look for inspiration?
Well a go to place is always my pinterest but these ideas have always been used so usually my blog’s ideas just come from inspiration around my room and just from other books, magazines and sometimes someone else’s idea morphed into something of no similarity but to me they remind me of each other because they sparked the idea.

If you had three wishes, what would you do to make it the dream space?
hmmmm….I would love to have more wardrobe storage for my stuff. I’ve got lots of space for clothes but I have limited space for stuff so I have to cut down on it and have it on display. Other than that it’s pretty much my dream space anyway.

How would you describe your style?

My style has always been on the colorful side. I also love to wear vintage and thrifted items. Ever since I was 13 I was in love with thrift stores and and cute vintage shops! I've been shopping for cute retro styles for the last 20 years!

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

My favorite piece in my wardrobe is this corduroy jacket! I bought it at a little second hand boutique about 4 years ago, and I've pretty much worn it with every outfit I own! I think I've only worn it in about 3 outfit posts on my blog, because who wants to see the same jacket worn over and over again? Though I would love to! I'm so in love with this jacket and how comfy it is. I don't think I'll be giving it up anytime soon.

Who are your style icons?

One of my style icons is Zooey Deschanel. I think she is so adorable! All of her outfits are always suite her perfectly, I wish I could have her clothes! Plus I also like Bernadette from The Big Bang Theory. I know she is just a character on a TV show, but the dresses they have her wear are so cute! I wish I could raid her dressing room.

Do you have any favourite designers?

One thing I have to admit is that I don't have any favorite designers. I've never been much of a label person. To be honest, as long as it fits comfortably, then I buy it!

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

Forever 21, Target, Urban Outfitters and thrift stores! My favorite out of that list is thrift stores. I could spend hours sorting through dresses and blouses. I love finding cute clothes at bargain prices.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

I normally don't alter any of my clothes unless it needs a hem.

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?   

Don't be afraid to mix in fun colors! A lot of people feel safe in dark colors, but don't be afraid to throw in a splash of color. I usually add brightly colored tights, or fun colored flats. You'll never find me without some type of bright color in my ensemble. Lately I've been obsessed pink.

Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

I have a few! Kaelah Bee at The Clueless Girl Guide. She has been blogging forever and I absolutely love her style! I have a thing for dresses and she mixes her dresses with the cutest shoes! I also love Kate at Scathingly Brilliant, Jessa at Caked Vintage and Crissy at the Dainty Fawn. All these ladies have such a wonderful sense of personal style and cute hair colors!
