I am loving these little spot illustrations by Stephanie Cox. These little watercolors have a lot of style within their freely painted lines. I can definitly see these gracing the pages of Martha Stewart or even inStyle sometime very soon. Stephanie is definitely one to keep your eye on!
SPOT ILLUSTRATIONS by stephanie cox
A VERY COLORFUL heart
Rafa Jenn has a new print out entitled “All You Need.” Made up of some very beautiful colors this print would look great in almost any space. But you better hurry fast with a price tag of $39 and a limited edition of only 25 these are going to go fast.
THIS JUST IN… the picture book report
The Picture Book Report is one of the coolest projects I have seen in a very long time. Fifteen amazing illustrators will be creating a new illustration from their chosen picture book every month. So every month a new surprise illustration from some of my favorite books growing up, by some of my favorite illustrators of today. The illustrators that are participating are… Andrea Kalfas, Daniel Krall, Israel Sanchez, Jeremy Sorese, John Martz, Julia Sonmi Heglund, Kali Ciesemier, Laura Park, Lizzy Stewart, Meg Hunt, Phil McAndrew, PMurphy, S.britt, Sam Bosma, and Will Bryant.
AMY RUPPEL’s beautiful animal illustrations
We all know i’m a sucker for silhouettes and theses illustrations from Amy Ruppel are no exception. These little graphic works are designed digitally and then cut out and placed neatly into a wax painting. The final product is just stunning. She also offers prints of her works… just in case you want to buy a few.
AUDREY KAWASAKI new limited edition prints
If you’ve been dreaming of having one of Audrey’s beauties to hang on your walls you only have to wait until saturday. She is going to release another two art prints with her “time limited edition” method. “Yuuwaku” is a 16″ x 20.5″ giclee, while “Hyakki Yakou” is a 14″ x 23″ giclee. The unframed prints are priced at $100 each, with a framed option available. The catch is these beauties will only be available Saturday, January 23 from 3pm-4pm (PST.) The edition size will be determined by how many orders are placed. You can only order one piece so choose wisely.
TAP WATER is the new bottled water
If tap water was a little more stylish would people buy less bottled water? Faucet Face thinks so. Tap just needs a little makeover. These BPA free glass bottles feature work of several amazing artists ( Seb Lester, Ray Fenwick& Annika Tran) and are sure to fancy-up your tap water next year. Through the month of December these awesome containers are 25% off and will ship out between feb/march. Perfect for that springtime picnic!
AMAZING LASERCUT pendants and pins
I am loving these lasercut pendants and brooches from Cat Rabbit Plush. I can honestly say I am feeling a little design envy over these! They are available as limited editions of 120 in 3 designs so you better get them while you still can! Owls and Kittens and Bunnies Oh my!
YOU WISH YOU WORKED at sterling cooper
I love MadMen. It is hands down the smartest show on tv. Period. So when i was given the opportunity to stop by the cooper sterling office this week I couldn’t refuse. Luckily while I was there someone snapped this photo of me with Mr. Draper and Mr. Sterling. I was trying to convince them that i would be a great addition to the art department there, but they didn’t really like the idea of more women doing a man’s job, even when I tried to butter them up with delicious coffee from the corner bodega. Maybe you will have better luck, Go MadMen Yourself.
ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATIONS to hold up your books
These bookends from auroraleehales are stunning. Each one of her bookends have an original illustration from the artists and are made of solid wood, to keep your books from toppling over. I really like the simplicity of these ink and pen illustrations and the line work is just wonderful. These little guys look great on their own, but look even better in a set, after all the books on the other side of your stack might start getting jealous if it’s not on their side. I for one, hate when my books start to fight, so i picked myself up a hand and a foot bookend, I can’t wait till they get here.
