Welcome to the Purp Alert. A monthly edit of fascinating finds I discover on the internet. I'll be highlighting creatives in all fields that inspire and challenge me to get better at my craft.
Athena is a makeup artist based in London, who takes beauty to a whole new level. She uses the human body as her canvas, creating untraditional beauty looks that are bound to turn heads. Her background in illustration clearly plays a big role in her work and adds to her never ending imagination and creativity. You can see some of the latest looks she's created here.
Dana Trippe is a Mixed Media photographer based in San Diego, California. Wen viewing her photographs you a enter a wold of color, nostalgia, and mystery, making me want to pick up my old film camera and start snapping and experimenting. You can view more of her workhere.
I first discovered Vasya's work a few years back when she's was working on a collection of illustrations that focused on neon lights. I rediscovered her work recently and fell in love with her digital illustrations of footwear. I'm amazed by her use of color and the way she is able to create different textures and surfaces through illustration. You can view her whole breadth of work here.
If I was some sort of movie star or musician, Halpern Studio would be my emerging designer of choice to rock on the runway. I love all of the contrasting sequin patterns, 70s silhouettes that scream updated Studio 54 glamour. Their latest collection is a must-see.
