Chris Turnham

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…

Lynnie Zulu

Lynnie Zulu

browsing the vibrant work of London based illustrator Lynnie Zulu is the perfect antidote to a Monday. growing up in Scotland, drawing was a form of escapism from an early age and much of her work draws from her family’s Tanzanian heritage. also the cursor on her website is a…

Miso

Miso

Stanislava Pinchuk aka Miso is a Ukrainian born artist based in Melbourne whose prolific body of work includes paper art, illustration and tattooing (amongst others). i’m one of those people who has never considered a tattoo (i suppose if i were to get one i would have one by now,…

Eleanor Taylor // Miss Moss

Eleanor Taylor

i discovered the wonderful work of Brighton based illustrator Eleanor Taylor while catching up with all the goodness over at Design Work Life. the first image of Hawaiian queen Ka’ahumanu really captured my imagination, a piece that Eleanor was commissioned to do for Julia Rothman’s upcoming book The Who, The What and…

Ben Phe / Manet

Ben Phe

i looooooooooove the work of illustrator Benjamin Evenett aka ben phe. he has done some wonderful reworks of classics pieces by Manet, Renoir, Bonnard, Lautrec & Matisse… i just really dig his style, his imagery puts a smile on my face. be sure to check out his website and his tumblr…

Prints // Miss Moss

Prints

i’ve been doing some gift guides (i hope they have been helpful?) but my favourite gift to give has always been a print or framed artwork of some kind. when i was a poor student this was always my solution for cash-strapped gift-giving. find a beautiful print (beg, borrow, steal, copy)…

Wrap

Wrap

as cheesy as it may sound, one of the highlights of my childhood was coming downstairs on Christmas morning and seeing all the colourful presents under the tree. i was under no illusion that Father Christmas had put it there, i knew it was my mom. but it was special…

Myrtle Illustrated

i always look forward to hearing from Whitney of LA-based Myrtle because the seasonal lookbooks for her fantastic shop are a thing of beauty. this time was no different, except it WAS different – because instead of using talented photographers, Whitney commissioned six artists to illustrate the FW13 lookbook. I’ve been privileged…

Biodiversity Heritage Library

i thought i’d share a little resource with you today. if you’re into dabbling around with imagery, need inspiration for visual projects or graphic design moodboards or whatever – you might be interested in the Biodiversity Heritage Library. they have hundreds (thousands?) of hi-res images from a consortium of natural history…

Erin Ellis

A New Logo

if you’ve been a long time reader you’ll have noticed the many, many redesigns i have undertaken on a whim around here. luckily the current one is probably my favourite, so it’s going to stick for a long while. but the one thing i don’t really bother with – or…

Katrin Coetzer: Honeymoon

living in Cape Town allows me to see the work of some of my favourite local artists in person, and Katrin Coetzer is one of them (who you may have seen me mention on the blog a few times – and you will probably remember her gorgeous wedding). she’s currently…
