SEL¥AK // “For Beach, For The Bedroom.”

“Does one fall in love in the Moroccan desert, or fall in love with the Moroccan desert? I couldn’t tell, and maybe I didn’t need to know the difference!”

Karina Seljak, a featured vendor at this Sunday’s Valentine’s Market, talked to Greenpointers about a love filled trip that was her design inspiration of her apparel line.

“I came away from my trip inspired to make garments that were made from single pieces of fabric, draping the body to protect it from the wind and the sun, and creating beautiful and ever changing silhouettes, that makes the wearer feel free and sexy.”

Her motto is, “For the beach, for the bedroom.”

Featured Artist: WEBCATS

How much do cats rule? When you can’t get enough cats in real life, check out WEBCATS, a series of hilarious cat drawings along with sarcastic and witty phrases that only a cat would be thinking. Greenpoint artist Scott Chasse is the brains behind Webcats. We started worrying about Scott when he began obsessively using Tumblr to post hundreds and hundreds of cat photos daily.

Scott is previously recognized for his obsession with painting Burt Reynolds so the obsessive part wasn’t a surprise, but cats? He is elusive about why cats are his focus, even though he is an avid cat lover and owner of a very handsome feline. My guess is it’s a riff on the internet itself, because apparently the two biggest searches online are porn and you guessed it – cats.

WEBCATS is not only on the web, you can now purchase screen printed t-shirts made by Scott right here in Greenpoint. When the entire world almost imploded after Instagram got hit by lightening, Scott said, “this is why I had to put my internet cat drawings on t-shirts – in case the internet breaks.”

And right now you can have Scott create a digital cat drawing of your cat for only $10 (on sale.) All you have to do is send him a photo and some text (optional) and he will draw your cat in true WEBCATS fashion.  These make great birthday and holiday gifts for your cat obsessed friends and family.

You can look forward to Scott’s weekly Wednesday cat drawings right here on Greenpointers!
