Kontora Sisters

the Kontora Sisters are Katya and Nastia from Simferopol, a city on the Crimean peninsula in the Ukraine. Katya makes jewellery and Nastia is an illustrator (she also takes the photographs seen here). i like that their styles complement each other. also check out Nastia’s other illustrative work here and follow Katya on instagram.

Ryo Takemasa

i don’t think i have ever spent so much time looking at illustrations of vegetables (if only i would spend as much time actually eating them). these wonderful renderings are by Japanese illustrator Ryo Takemasa who has done work for a number of international publications. check out his work at his website & blog. he also has a shop – so you can buy some veggies in print!

Chris Turnham

the modernist feeling in these rad illustrations by the very talented LA based illustrator & printmaker Chris Turnham made me want to watch Mad Men right away. luckily the last season is just around the corner, my pretties.

Archist

since it’s a bit of a design slash art history day around here – i dig these clever Archist posters by Italian architect & designer Federico Babina, where he imagines what buildings by 27 famous artists would look like (Architect + Artist – get it!)

the important question is – which of these building would you actually want to live in? i think walking into Keith Haring’s dog house every day would put a big smile on my face. otherwise i’d have to go for Duchamp’s building, for sheer wack factor.

all images c/o  Federico Babina. see them all here. buy any of these as a print on Society6.
