ok, the best thing about blogging is you meet so many amazing peeps that you probably never would have had the opportunity to otherwise. i recently have been emailing w/ hernán paganini, a graphic designer from buenos aires. his emails are kind, sweet and cheerful...always signed w/ "mountains of color, hernán ._.". ummm, how frickin cute is that? hernán told me a little bit about himself:
"i am inspired by everything that surrounds me, i am amazed easily as a child, playing with this environment, the actors, situations that happen within and that somehow affect me, i try to transform my daily reality, as a result emerge moments of life through materializing the sensations that i have inside.
since i was a child, i collected and sorted things i found in the street. with the passing of time this material became my raw material to develop much of my work.
impassioned, the heart awaits the passage of time to become a child again."
i think you can see why i would be taken w/ hernán and his work. i am always drawn to people that have an enthusiasm that should be bottled and sold as an elixir. recently, hernán made an amazing planter w/ found material. i'm in love w/ it. what i wouldn't do to have one in our yard and on our porch, or in fact in my bedroom. see more of hernán's work on his flickr page.
