SO THIS IS ME:

A psychotherapist, music fiend and aspiring world traveler with penchants for learning and laughter. A daydreamer extraordinaire and survivor of six Chicago winters. I am from San Francisco, spent a six year hiatus in the windy city and recently transplanted back to San Diego, which will always feel like home. A complex character and Rare Bird who hopes to inspire others to be so.

This blog is a gathering of tidbits on psychology, music, art, science, food and fashion. It is intended to inform, inspire, illuminate and to keep me from fidgeting.

Mixed media collages. Oh, and Prada.

So, I have this bizarre obsession with mixed media collages.

They're like candy to me. Can't get enough.

I am also always inspired by things that are at once eerie and ethereal.

Hence, my obsession with this collage series I stumbled upon:

The artist, Ashkan Honarvar used Vanitas symbols to create an "equilibrium between life and death".

The woman depicted features different animal eyes, flowers and other body parts. 

Beautiful, creepy and cool, all at the same time. My favorite!

via Ashkan Honarvar

Is it just me or does this kinda remind you of Prada's Fall Fantasy Lookbook (of which I was also obsessed)?

Have a gander:

Love it all.
