The inspiration moodboard I made when we started working on this month and theme in November. See you Monday in 2012!
I’ll miss this
yay! candle! I loved it when that was the background. it’s a gorgeous painting and also every time I looked at it the beginning of teen age riot would start playing in my head. haha.
I love Michelle Fleming’s photographs!
I loved this month’s backgrounds! Can’t wait for the January issue.
February’s theme really should just be “margot tenenbaum” since she pops up so much on rookie (not that i’m complaining, i love her)!
sooooo many of my favourite pictures ever in the moodboard there… the top left from fudge magazine, wild thing abbey, autumn’s perfect-couch-matching-yellow-dress, maurice sendak, tim walker’s mattress stack… the best…
The edward scissorhands one is wonderfully strange. The film is definitely in my top 5 of all time. PLEASE OH PLEASE do an article on the film; on its creepiness, fashion and the philosophical aspects…..
Hey hey hey is one of the candles from ‘two candles’ the candle of daydream nation cover art fame? Also, candle.
I Just Love the Charlie Brown one.
and also those pictures of Bob Dylan.
Not trying to be morose or anything but I think february’s theme should be regrets….
I’m going to miss “home” so much! It was a really good theme choice! :)
one of my favourite part about this website are the themed backgrounds each day. i absolutely love them.
That creepy town from Edward Scissorhands is MY town. It’s a subdivision called Carpenter’s Run in Land O’ Lakes, FL. I live about five minutes from there. The houses aren’t actually pastel colored.
Thank you :)
I would have done Bob Dylan in a heart beat…just saying.
