A few of my favorite things

July 15, 2010

I haven’t been blogging much lately but I assure you I have been busy crafting. I’m not going to apologize again for not turning it all into paragraphs and pictures straight away but I can promise there is plenty to be shared. In the mean time I am unapologetically enjoying that I have work to do, sun to bask in, and new crafting adventures to indulge.

While I do all this, I thought I’d share some work by Ken Baily. Someday he will line my kitchen walls with two of my favorite things…dogs and food.

I love my westies 🙂

Superheroes Among Us 33 by Estasketch

Superheroes Among Us 33 by Estasketch

I love this fashion design-esq illustration mixed with collage. EstaSketch is an Australian based artist that works in the 2D medium and creates some really wonderful original pieces for sale in her etsy store. She has a great collection of similar human figure drawings mixed with paint color swatches called “Colour theory”. I really recommend checking out her shop….I even like the way she’s displayed her drawings with paper clamps.

I also recommend checking out this artist’s blog!

I’ve come across a lovely Sydney based artist named Kate Banazi that works mostly in silk screen.

I LOVE silk screened art as it is one of the first times I really got involved in design and discovered how much i love it. It’s something I’d like to get into again once I have the money to invest in quality inks and screens.

Her prints are beautiful and dizzying combination of graphic, color and shape. There is so much fine texture overlapping they feel like they’re in motion.

I also like the way she combines photographic images with a vintage feel, with boldly colored graphic patterns.

It’s not as though I’ve found one I don’t like yet but I really love this one:

I’d like to send out a thank you to pretty*swell at She took the time to make a lovely post about my etsy store. Please take the time to stop by her blog and see what creative work she’s been up to!
