Loving these customized hand painted and written art posters we got from The Letter J Supply to remind us of God’s goodness in the midst of our relocation.

Psalms 36:5-6 (THE MSG Bible)
God’s love is meteoric,
    his loyalty astronomic,
His purpose titanic,
    his verdicts oceanic.
Yet in his largeness
    nothing gets lost;

1 Corinthians 10:17 (THE MSG Bible)
We don’t reduce Christ to what we are; he raises us to what he is.

How beautiful are they! Love the typography and God’s promises in these!

Memory Makers – Forget Me Not

Our Singapore Autograph Book project/exhibition titled – “Forget Me Not" (a collaboration between the little dröm store & graphic designer Joanne Lim) is documented under “irememberSG" by National Library Board under this episode of "Memory Makers”.

Here, you’ll get to meet Uncle Lawrence Lim – Joanne’s uncle, whose autograph book contribution was a real gem because it was from the 1950s! You’ll also hear from Phoebe (of Carpenter and Cook), and also one half of the little dröm store’s owner – Stanley, about their thoughts on Singapore’s infamous 90’s autograph book movement.

Japan Travelogue – Drôle Cafe (Tokyo)

The brown sugar soy milk with the marshmallow foam was such a comforting drink to indulge in for early mornings! There was an ongoing exhibition by a local artist, so all the wooden pieces you see here are the masterpieces of that artist. The artworks were all so nicely integrated into the whole cafe space :)

Photos shot on expired 35mm film and Nikon F50.

Japan Travelogue – Kate Coffee (Tokyo)

Here’s continuing where we left off from sharing our Tokyo Travelogue. These are a little long overdue, but we still do hope they inspire! Here’s Kate Coffee, yet another awesome recommendation from Hello Sandwich’s Tokyo Guide.

We’ve shot these photos using expired film here – you can tell from the warped colour tones. We kinda like the rawness and imperfections here, especially how the images are inaccurately cropped (you could tell from the abrupt thick black rectangles cutting across our photos, heh!)

The food, ambient, drinks were all so good! Oh how we miss Japan!

Lullatone – While Winter Whispers

We recently discovered that Lullatone’s latest album cover is designed by the awesome Anna Kövecses. It’s so playful with its paper folding that it folds out to a poster, and then folds back to a sleepy face, that’s all ready to hibernate!

Lullatone’s latest album – While Winter Whispers, is now available for sale at our online store by clicking here.

Hey drömmers, just thought we’d share some good vibes to cheer you guys up this mid week! The awesome duo, Lullatone has a new album titled – “While Winter Whispers”.

Even tho we don’t experience wintery snow here in Singapore, it’s still magical and dreamy if you close your eyes and let your mind wander! Enjoy!

Last Sunday, we headed for a film screening that documented the lives of art collectors – Herb & Dorothy, shown at The Arts house. A documentary depicting the passionate lives behind this endearing and inspiring couple.

Words could never describe how moved we were by the passion & faith that Herb & Dorothy had for art, and also for the love between Herb and Dorothy. Both of them were so cute, endearing and inspiring. They ate, lived and breathed passion. The best part was to be able to see Dorothy up close in person, at the end of the film screening!! That totally blew our minds away!

Dorothy & her chicken rice
Here’s Dorothy, having a taste of Singapore’s infamous dish – Chicken Rice! The Herb & Dorothy Singapore team had brought Dorothy around during her visit here :)

Herb & Dorothy
This is a portrait of Herb & Dorothy – a portrayal of both their reactions when they looked at artworks in exhibitions. Herb would usually be very intense and focus straight into his favourite artwork, thus the “horizontal” position. And on the contrary, Dorothy would take things a little slower, thus her more relaxed and “vertical” posture. This portrait almost forms an invisible grid!

Benny shared that Dorothy had asked to visit Marina Bay Sands Singapore and the crew was pleasantly surprised at first, but later realized the reason was that Dorothy knew that one of Sol LeWitte’s painting was there. We heard from Benny that it was an emotional moment for Dorothy and she broke down in tears when she was standing amidst Sol LeWitte’s enormous artwork in MBS, Singapore.

Dorothy & Sol LeWitte
In this above photo, is a picture of Dorothy with Sol LeWitte’s artwork, one of Herb & Dorothy’s long time artist friend, at Marina Bay Sands Singapore.

Dorothy was brought to Art Stage Singapore to view the works of our local art pieces, and later gently requested not to be brought to further art shows as they reminded her very much of her journey with her husband, Herb. Hearing this moved me to tears.

Quote
Stirred up by a particular screen shot of a billboard from the film that really spoke to us, it says “Art is mute when money talks”.

Creativity is pretty much suppressed & silenced when everything is about winning a price war, & survival of the richest. Really hope to break such mentalities and stigmas we have here in our sunny island, set in the sea. Hopefully someday, perseverance & passion will eventually win the battle!

Herb & Dorothy
Currently at 2014, Dorothy is gracefully aged at 79, and Herb had passed on in 2012. Herb was also lovingly nicknamed “Herbie” by Dorothy.
