WOOD GRAIN prints for everyone

I love these prints from Golly Bard. I have had them on my list for quite some time and they now come in 2 wonderful colors-ways. Derived from an original watercolor painting these prints would look great in a hall next to each other or very playful in a kids room. She also has some wonderfully unique characters that live inside her prints just waiting to have a cozy house to call home. 

TUT TUT it looks like rain

It’s been pretty dreary in New York for the last 2 days. I normally love rain, but I was hoping for a nicer weekend to get out and take some pictures for reference for the new shadowboxes. During my rain search today I stumbled upon these fun illustrations by Ward Jenkins. Although they are digitaly colored they evoke the sense of child-like watercolors that always catch my eye. I can’t wait to see what else he has in store for us. You can check out his website as well.

SPOOKY scary

Happy Halloween everyone. I have always really liked these unique prints by Steve Morris. His illustration style reminds me of some golden books I read as a kid with a twist on the subject matter. His use of minimal colors that really stand out is what makes his Giclee prints jump off the wall at you. He also has a Graphic novel “Blessed Thistle” published by dark horse comics. Check out his work and take a home a piece for yourself. 

FOXY drawings

I was going through my old etsy favorites today and admiring all of the things that have sold. Some of those favorites have been on there since the dawn of time ( or at least my etsy account ).  Then I came across these wonderful prints from Todd Design. Her style is very unique and her little fox illustrations would be right at home in a quaint little children’s book. I hope one day I will get to read it.
