New York Series: The Meatball Shop

Posted On: Monday, June 30, 2014

NYC Series Logo

The food theme carries on for my next post in my New York Series, again I was instantly captured by the brilliantly designed website for this restaurant. They go by the name of The Meatball Shop and they serve, well…. meatballs! Started by two friends Daniel and Michael, the mix and match meatball menu became an instant hit in their home city of New York, where they now have 4 locations, each decorated with a wonderfully warm and rustic interior.

I’ve been a little obsessed with these guys for a while now and I can’t even remember how I found them, I just remember being taken in by their website and by how their photo’s drew me in. They are the main feature throughout their website, and you could almost say The Meatball Shop let’s the photo’s do the talking, what more do you need?! This works well and you immediately want to find out more.

Wrapping Paper Montage

This post came about by accident (a happy accident!) like when you go shopping for jeans and you comeback with shoes, I wasn’t looking for pretty wrapping paper but as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to blog about it.

I found the paper on DotComGiftShop, and I really love their vintage theme. This is only a small selection of the wonderful range, they have many more designs to choose from. I can’t decide what to buy – maybe I should get them all!

It has been another busy month for photographing, and again I’ve been visiting many beautiful places, which have provided some great subjects to capture. Without realising my photos this month have mostly been shot in the countryside, therefore I have a very flowery and English theme running through them. I think these are my favourite photos I’ve shot for a while, but I say that every month!

There were too many photos to share with you this month, so I have narrowed it down (it wasn’t easy!) to these shots. If you’d like to see my other photo’s from this month visit my Instagram or Facebook page, where I upload my images everyday.

Vibrant Illustrations by Margaret Berg

Last week I posted about the food illustrator Joel Penkman. Whilst researching his work I came across another brilliant illustrator, Margaret Berg, who’s style is just as quirky, yet completely different to Joel’s. As before, I just love it!

Margaret is an independent illustrator working and living in Santa Monica, not only working on illustrations, but also movie posters, fine art and graphics. Her illustrations are beautifully painted, with striking bold colours that make your eyes smile. It was the colour and her loose style that first attracted me to her work. This style is replicated throughout her illustrations and it works brilliantly, I knew I had to share it with you.

More of Margaret’s illustrations can be found on both her website and blog, they are a must see x
