Yay! One of my favorite prints is back in circulation. Thanks to 20×200 who has teamed up with artist Dylan Fareed you can get your hands on a limited edition letterpress print of “We Are So Good Together”. I practically harassed poor Dylan back in 2007 to get a copy of the print and was thrilled when he found one in his studio and sold it to me. Obviously it can be read as a romantic sentiment, but I love what Dylan meant by it: “The print was just for myself—a half-hearted joke about the bond between a guy and the paper that hangs on his wall.” That’s awesome. Hurry up and grab one for yourself or someone you love before they sell out again!

Sometimes I am simply amazed by all of the creative people in the world. I love how the world wide web makes it so easy to find such talent like Barcelona based artist Judy Kaufmann. Spotted on my favorite blog Mint, I can’t get enough of her graphic prints, especially her “famous prints”.
I don’t have any wall space left for one of her magnificent prints but I do have an iPhone in need of a cover. Judy makes iPhone cases, iPad and laptop skins, t-shirts and hoodies available online through Society6. You can purchase Judy’s prints on her Etsy shop.
One of the best things about Pinterest is the sheer number of new images posted each day by like-minded design-souls. My favorite discovery today is the artist Marnie Gilder which came via Capree Kimball’s pinterest board. Marnie’s abstract screenprints are so fresh and cheerful. Her images are very simple but somehow she is able to convey the feeling that she puts her whole heart into each image. Prices start at $550 AUD and can be ordered online through her website.
I absolutely adore these abstract prints from Chinese artist Yangyang Pan. I love her use of vibrant colors and the unique textures she creates in her paintings. My only wish is that one of her original paintings was still available (especially the first one). For now I’ll just have to satisfy myself with a print version off of her Etsy shop Siiso.

I absolutely love this nursery by Lindsay of the blog Aubrey + Lindsay for her son Oscar. What really caught my eye though was the spirited print of the boy and lion above the crib. Inspired by 1950′s picture books, artist Sarah Jane (another local Utah girl) has created a collection of illustrations that capture the sweetness of childhood. Currently Sarah Jane is not offering this print in poster size but you can convo her through her Etsy shop about various size options.
Happy New Year! I’m slowly getting my blog groove back on so thank you for your patience. I thought I’d start off the new year with some art from 20×200. If I buy one more print from these guys I’m not going to have a bare wall in my house!
I just bought the Ideal Bookshelf 102: Cooking by Jane Mount to hang alongside the birthday cake painting which is in my kitchen. And I don’t know if I can resist this weeks print: The Universe and Forever by Wendy MacNaughton. Maybe my new years resolution should be to stop buying art from 20×200!
Aren’t these colorful and strong graphic prints from The Pink Pagoda so much fun? Dallas based Jennifer is a graphic designer and a lover of Chinoiserie. I think a quartet of these prints would look so sweet framed in a little girls room. If you order over $50 from Jennifer’s Etsy shop she’ll include a cute Pink Pagoda T-shirt for free! See more here.
Well the hubs really nailed it with my birthday present this year. A few months ago I wrote about Paul Ferney’s “Let Them Eat Cake” gallery show and I was secretly hoping the hubs would mind-read that I really wanted one of these paintings for my birthday. But just to be sure, I took the liberty of emailing him pictures of Paul’s available pieces from Studio Gallery in case his mind-reading capabilities were all full. Even with all of that effort I didn’t think he would actually get me one! I was stunned and amazed when I unwrapped this beauty on my birthday. Each cake painting has a story inscribed on the back and mine reads: Moist Devils Food “After a long day of work, she would don her prettiest dress and consume cake for dinner.” That sounds about right!
There are a few of Paul’s paintings left at Studio Gallery in San Francisco. Call Jennifer to inquire.
