Super feeling the pastel colors and odd themes in Jennifer Davis' work. I can really get behind a crisp white shirt with monsters living it for sure. She has a few pieces up for grabs on The Beholder, and a few sold as well. I'd be stoked to have a piece of her's and I my feeling is you would too. I'm bummed I missed out on Tiny Showcase's print of her's, ahh well you snooze you lose.
Amy Blackwell's solid graphics have been on my radar lately and I just love the boldness and crispness that she brings to her drawings. Plus, I am always stoked when an artist renders an animal in an ever so cute light. Or when they take it upon themselves to just make hybrids out of existing animals. That always rules. I'm a sucker for the animals. You can buy her prints on Folksy. So cute. Check out her blog for daily updates and drawings.
I am super excited to post this give-a-way by Sublime Stitching. They're offering one reader this super cute pattern by Carson Ellis. It's #9 in their artist series, it's just perfect for the summer. I first learned of Sublime Stitching years ago through BUST magazine. I love what Jenny Hart has done for embroidery! It has been a favorite hobby of mine since I was a kid, and leave it to Sublime Stitching to take art and combine it with craft so effortlessly. So rad. Carson Ellis is an amazing illustrator and I can't think of a perfect summer time combo. Just leave a comment. I'll pick a winner on Monday a.m.
I just wanted to give the show I curated at Needles + Pens, You've Got Light In Your Eyes, a little plug here on the blog, as this is the last weekend to check it out before it comes down. It was such a great show to be a part of and the work was all so dynamic and beautiful. You can view all the art work online, there are some great pieces at super great prices too. If you want something really bad...hit me or Andrew at N+P up, we'd be happy to see the work fall into loving hands! Support the artists you love and have something amazing for your walls! It's worth it.
