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 🙂


Accentuate the Negative

April 27, 2010

While I am up in the air on my way to Sydney, I thought I would share with you the wonderful art of illustrator Noma Bar.

Noma was born and raised in Israel but currently lives and works in London as an illustrator and graphic designer. He has worked for publications like New York Times, Esquire, The Guardian and Time Out London. Most recently he has published a book called “Guess Who? The Many Faces of Noma Bar” that features beautiful caricature style illustrations that utilize shape, color and manipulation of negative space. See if you can figure out these portraits and find the hidden elements that give their identity away.

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 could see these as fabric…but even still I’d love them on my wall. His city scenes, animals and portraits are all reasonably priced. Don’t wait to see him in advertising! Take him home!
