When I travelled to the countryside of Los Angeles, underneath the blue sky, I passed by many unique signs along the road. Even after I came home I could not forget the presence those worn out wooden signs exuded. They were old, and weathered, and they were beautiful. I was inspired to make one of my own, so I started to make signs from cut wood. The motifs for my wooden “signs” are antique signs, people and buildings in the city. One thing I always keep true … Read More »

Last weekend, we visited Kelly Rakowski of New Friends to check out how this amazing duo came to be.
Tell us how New Friends got started.
We met on the internet! Alex is weirdfriends.tumblr.com and I have the blog Nothing-is-New.com. I was super into Alex’s tumblr because it was filled with crazy weird textiles. We started an email correspondence for a couple months, then decided to work on a project together, even though we still hadn’t met. We discussed parameters and concepts and sent each other packages of yarn so we’d work from the same palette and materials.
