[uhp-steyt fan-see] - adjective

1. not exorbitant or extravagent by city standards, however in a rural setting (like upstate new york) it is in fact, quite fancy.

2. a wonderful blog dedicated to art, design and other things that are indeed upstate fancy.





This is the very first post in a new weekly series here at upstatefancy. We have asked some very talented artists, illustrators, designers and crafters to share some things that help inspire them. So each monday stop by an take a sneak peek into the swatch files and bulletin boards of some of your favorite artists. This week’s inspiration board is from the wonderful pulpsushi.


It’s difficult for me to describe where my inspiration comes from.  People who I just love everything about and wish I could be more like. Places that I dream of seeing and absorb their history and culture.  Things in my daily life that I try not to take for granted like visiting my favorite museum, or picking up a batch of my favorite flowers.  I just love colors and experimenting with bold, obnoxious palettes and imagery.  I’ve always had quirky taste (esp in all things kitsch and low brow) even though I may not show it in my appearance, my interest and taste in things made me stand out from my friends in school and in my neighborhood growing up and it still does to this day.  — Marilyn
