This blog is amazing. It charts the progress of an art show for which every artist designs an umbrella of their choice. Here are two of my favourite pictures.

From a burlesque myspace site called Viva Valezz! Not sure where she got it from but ain’t it gorgeous.

In other news my brand spanking new umbrella site just got its eighth customer, but I’m sure there are more of you out there. I’m just working on getting the international shipping sorted and then I can pop them out to you world-wide!

Apologies for the lack of umbrella related research recently featured on these here pages. I am of course busy making umbrellas of my own, all of which you will be able to see from these links in the near future. In the meantime, here are those final designs as voted for by none of you, the viewing public…

I am scared, excited and broke. How are you? Been saying too many consecutive words beginning with R lately?

This is a charming story about painted umbrellas which have cropped up all over Italy and Switzerland. Many people assumed that they were traditional creations of the townspeople of Barga where they first appeared, but they are in fact all the work of one artist.

Pylones in the US make fantastic little figurines whose clothes open into bold coloured umbrellas. I’m particularly fond of this holy-looking orange number.

Another day, another idea done better by someone else before me. These umbrellas are from a great range at Bright-Night, who have put a little light inside the canopy which illuminates the water-inspired designs. I’d love to see a crowd of them walking down a dark street, it would maximise the impact of the gorgeous shape that is the umbrella.
