New prints by Catherine Campbell.

These new prints by Catherine Campell of My Folk Lover are so delightful it makes my heart ache just a little.
Yes, I realize that’s a touch melodramatic, but how much closer to perfection could these be?

Love the Alice in Wonderland theme she’s got going on.
You can see all the other new prints for sale on her Etsy or on her blog.

Adorable t-shirts designed by Betsy Walton.

I love these t-shirts designed by one of my favorite artists Betsy Walton. I told myself that I would stop buying t-shirts, but these are just so tempting! You can purchase them here for $28. I also really like the tote bag that she designed. Check them out.

P.S. Don’t forget about the Teacher Outfit Contest! You can still enter to win Polaroid film until Monday, June 1!

An Interview with Nik Daum

I was recently introduced to the art of Nik Daum when he kindly dropped me an email with a link to his work. And, I am so glad that he did! What followed was hours spent pouring over his quirky art. I enjoyed his “dordles” which he describes as “not quite a drawing and not quite a doodle and not quite bad”. These dordles range from cute to (really, really) creepy and are”recorded in the margins of advertising briefs, discarded printouts, or the company stationary”.

Nik’s sheer volue of art work is certainly enough to impress anyone. He seems like an especially busy fellow which is why I was thrilled that he agreed to an interview. Take a look at what Nik has to say about his art:

Where do you currently live? Where have you lived in the past? Has this had an effect on your art?
I’m currently living in Shanghai, China for a six month+ work opportunity. Prior to that I lived on the west coast in Portland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. I grew up in Dallas, Texas. All of these places have had an effect on my creative thinking, mostly through the variety of scenery and people. San Francisco felt the artiest and weirdest place to live, but a lot of my upbringing in Texas was far from normal.

What inspires you?
Daydreaming to music, walking around both city and wilderness, riding a scooter or bike, seeing new countries. Even a little sadness is inspiring sometimes.

What do you do when you are feeling uninspired?
I’ve never been able to force inspiration, so I either accept that it’s not going to happen that day or I try something to compensate. Such simple diversions could be a tweak to my website, a blog post, a doodle, practice guitar, go on a walk. I find it weird that when I’m at my happiest, I’m also at my most uninspired artistically. I might feel like anything is possible, but I’m least inclined to follow through. I guess I save all that motivation for rainy days.

What sort of mood do you wish to portray in your artwork?
Childlike curiosity. Even if the subject matter is weird or dark, it can still feel innocent. I hope some of my art makes people smile too.

Lovely T-shirts by Rosie Music


If you recall, I did a nice little interview with Rosie Music this past May. Since then, I’ve been keeping track of her latest endeavors & was thrilled to find these beautiful t-shirts displaying her artwork now available in her Etsy shop. They are all so sweet & the fact that such a sweet girl makes them is just icing on the cake! I’ll take one of each, thank you very much!

A Human Being Before Anything Else

I have loved Frank Chimero‘s illustrations for a while now. However, it wasn’t until recently that I discovered he has a shop with very reasonably priced posters ($20!) of his work. There are so many lovely posters to choose from! You should most definitely check them all out if you haven’t already. He knows what’s up.

Illustrations by James Gulliver Hancock

Brilliant illustrations by James Gulliver Hancock.

You should have a look at his impressive portfolio.
He also has a shop where he sells all sorts of delightful goodies.

Perfect print for the scientist in your life.

“The person you love is 72.8 percent water”

This poster will definitely appeal to the scientifically-minded special someone in your life.
But, also to anyone who loves good design. I adore the type on this poster. Perfection.

Adorable free wallpaper by Jinjerup.

I thought I’d share this adorable collection of free downloadable wallpaper that I found at Jinjerup. There is also an equally adorable selection of free printable gift box templates. Perfect for the holiday gift-giving season. The only problem is, I don’t know which to choose. I love them all!
