By Panfilia Iannarone. I like how this works to create a simple narrative (of ~love~) between two characters by using props and colour. The graphic style is quite charming as well, as a geometric abstraction of the traditional medieval inspired king/queen illustrations, as well as a playfulness in the aces (turning them into scenes: the old man/ spades is my favourite. It makes me think of a disapproving, grumpy in-law!).
Great way to secure the tent to the stakes. Modern - Bungee Tie and Ball has "give" to allow for the excessive pulling on the grommets, especially in windy weather. This extra "give" will help to prevent tearing of the grommets: http://thekeytosurvival.com/storetitles/warmthshelter/tienball.html Plus: http://www.containerstore.com/shop/needIt/needIt?productId=10034727
This vaulted ceiling caught my eye because of the intersection with another part of the ceiling that we cannot see. This vault is much simpler that what we would typically see in a cathedral or other popular area for vaults. This inspires me to try and use vaults in even the simplest of places to capture beautiful light and darkness intersections.
What if we did a concrete counter, and then did the front of the bar with slats from wine barrels? It would look more rustic / comfortable / pacific northwest with that type of wood on the front than this bar, which while cool feels too sterile for you guys. My point is I like the way the lines are horizontal along the face of the bar. Also note the chalkboard element behind the bar.
