birds have gotten a bad rap these past few years, appearing in a cutesy manner on anything and everything from ceramics to dish towels to tote bags (put a bird on it!) at one point i found myself saying, “if i see one more bird…” but Australian designer and illustrator Pete Cromer has made me appreciate our feathered friends once again with his Aussie bird prints. i also love his other prints like this whale head and happy cogs. all available at his online shop.

  1. There’s something nostalgic about this art by Pete that takes me back to my childhood, Eric Carle, for example. It’s the mish mash of vibrant colors, with the undefined, odd shapes married together that speaks to me. This would do so well as art for a child’s play room, it’s so full of imagination!

  2. I’ve admired Pete’s work for a while now!! And TOTALLY agree with Rosie that it’s reminiscent of Eric Carle (why hadn’t I spotted that before??) I have seen pics of Pete in action too, with his stencils – he looks like he’s having lots of fun! Gorgeous stuff.
