Have you heard of Lab Partners? Pretty much everything about them rocks. Their website is soooo well done, and it's clear that they put a lot of thought into it. I mean, just look at that front page animation. These letterpressed prints have my heart's undivided attention. As I'm in the middle of overhauling my apartment, and finally putting serious thought into every room, these prints would be perfect sittin' pretty over my dresser. They're part of a series called "Hunt and Gather" inspired by treasures found at flea markets. Le sigh, it's always uplifting to see great work being put into the world. Prints, you will be mine one of these days!
What can I say about Rifle Paper Co.? Everything in their shop is simply a visual delight. It makes you feel like you're in a fantasy land filled with pretty flowers, delicious fruits and glamorous Parisian women, all the time. The lighthearted nature of their vast array of products from notepads, to stationery and wedding invitations is a reminder to revel in the small details all around you. Above are just a small handful of my current favorites from them. What are yours?
Exciting new to share with you all! I will be selling my cards and photos (and some new work!) at the first ever Rumble Arts Craft Fair in Humboldt Park. I'm very excited and nervous, but hope you will stop by if you're in Chicago and feeling crafty.
