designer loves art... Krista Charles...195

can a matchbook contain more than the address they belong to?

this is Krista Charles

living in New Mexico, she has been drawing since the age of four that took her to her an MFA in UNM. she started working with matchbooks when she saw her grandfathers collections. as many people who collect matchbooks know they usually have an address because its publicity, so what Krista does is input that address into Google maps, from where she would sketch what she would see into the interior jacket of the matchbook. love the idea and perfect for collecting.

designer loves art... Dante Gabriel Rossetti...194

not many get to mold the arts in their time.

this is Dante Gabriel Rossetti

born in England from a family  of creatively influenced children. he was both inspired to draw and the study of poetry. between which he divided the rest of his life. he was one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood, in which there was an ambiance to both encouragement   criticism and safeguard from external hostility. this allowed all of the members to grow. Although he didn't have an easy life, plagued by the suicide of his wife and sickness. he represented the Victorian life quite accurately  and is known as one of the most influential artist and writers of his time.
