Who are we?
2nd day fresh is the online shop of NYC husband and wife art team, Ella and Brian Richards. It is a place for us to present items we have designed and made. Ella is a nationally recognized award winning artist who has created a type of art she calls Scissors Drawings. Ella loves to take pictures with her new iphone. She finds subjects from our home in Greenwich Village and from our cross country adventures doing art shows. Here we are happy to offer these images to you.
Brian has been busy exploring Cyanotype photography. We are history lovers, who enjoy pouring through historical images then rendering them as a Cyanotype. The blue color is distinctive and an excellent way to create a contemporary look for historic images. Brian's NYC uniform is a tee shirt. So since you can Cyanotype on any natural fabric, we have cyanotypoe tees to offer. The subjects for the tees are true originals. Brando, Freud and Einstein, Big Mama Thornton, and more.
What is 2nd day fresh?
Second Day Fresh comes from our favorite book, The Master & Margarita, by Mikhail Bulgakov. A biting satire of Soviet life in the 1930s. In one memorable scene a clerk describes the fish to the devil he is examining 2nd day fresh. It has since become a cult expression in Russia.For us 2nd day fresh represents our commitment to creating unique and lovingly made items.
