I Make: My Etsy Shop

Well, I’ve been posting on here for a while, but I haven’t really shown much of my work. I thought you might like to take a look at some of the stuff I sell in my Etsy shop.

I Love: Zara Picken

Zara Picken is a Bristol-based illustrator creating the most charming illustrations. Her style is old school handmade starting with a drawing and then taking it into Photoshop. Here are a few of my favorites. Check out the rest!

I Love: Inspiration Boards

I came across this sweet group called Inspiration Groups. I love looking into other artist’s studios. Even better is seeing what inspires them! Here are a few of my favorites.

I Love: Lumadessa

So I adore birds. I came across Lumadessa. Lumadessa is an art and design label started by Josh Brill. You can get these sweet little birds in his shop and the best part is 5% of the proceeds go to Animal and Environmental Charities.

A Painting I Did Recently

I found this awesome group called ‘the art of display’ and found this photo, fell in love with it, and wanted to do a quick painting. I did this at about 2am the other night. Unfortunately, I feel most creative between 1-4am. This does not prove to be practical.

Let me know what you think of it.

I Love: Geninne

I have always loved birds. Geninne’s work makes me love them even more. I originally found her through her Etsy. You can also find her on flickr, and her illustration blog.
