Color Crush No. 4 by Julia Walck

I've been eyeing this wall hanging by Karen Kimmel for a while now. The colors and shapes used are a fantastic combo! I just had to use it on something.

I rounded up the closest colored nail polishes I had and went freestyle on my nails. Starting with a yellow base (obv. because it's my favorite color), I swooped polish over not afraid of going onto my fingers. Lots of remover was used around the edges, but the method made for a super playful nail design! 

May '16 Playlist by Julia Walck

I hope that May is going to be a bit more relaxed of a month. I've been so busy with work and freelance projects lately I haven't really had a moment for myself.

May is a month of re-birth with all those flowers and whatnot right? I want to translate that re-birth into my art and get back into the swing of things. (Hopefully that sentiment sticks this time.)

Here's some highlights from the May-list (May Playlist... get it?).

  • You'll find TWO Operators songs on here because I'm slightly obsessed with them at the moment. I can't stop listening to their new album, Blue Wave. It's SO GOOD.
  • M83 released a new full length album, Junk. They played a couple off of it at Coachella and it was a super dreamy show. 
  • The Thermals have a new album and I'm getting some serious High School flashbacks. 
  • I just found out that Digitalism's new album drops on May 13 (brb marking it on my calendar). This is what I call my "in-the-zone" music, a.k.a what's blasting through my headphones while I'm designing. 
  • Despite all of the above, my favorite song on this May-list has to be "Looped" by Klasmos. It's a moody, dancy, weightless track that just leaves me happy. 

There's Gonna Be Good Times by Julia Walck

This past weekend I got to hang out with some of my favorite people, which is pretty cool because we're very rarely in the same place at the same time. We found a photobooth and kind of sort of went a bit overboard on photos.

When I look at these photos, I can't help but play this Jamie xx song in my head.

I also finally made it out to The Broad; we waited in the standby line to get in, which wasn't too bad but I'd recommend going prepared with tickets. 

Here's me standing in front of an Ellsworth Kelly (RIP).
