Jason and I are just tickled by the work of Alan Brown of Medusa Wolf. Every year for our anniversary we love to add a piece of original art to our collection. I think we’ve already made a decision for this year, but I’m not sure if we can wait until September. How can you resist two macho dudes spouting sentiments!

This past week I’ve been mixing up paints and making paste papers to adorn journals and jotters for my upcoming shop launch on Etsy. The act of making paste papers is like finger paintings for adults, so needless to say it’s super fun. I love using Hahnemuhle Ingres for my paste papers because it absorbs the pigments and becomes wonderfully malleable during covering.
After the initial pass of the base color, I then add the additional design elements. I love using simple tools to create the designs, such as brushes, scrap board and my fingers. For this series of paste papers, I also carved some handmade stamps into linoleum. This was a new technique for me, but I dove right in, choosing simple irregular half-moon shapes.
I’ll be launching my shop in mid-March, so stay tuned to see how these paste papers get transformed into journal covers.

You will fall in love Leah Reena Goren, trust me. She’s an all around superstar, transforming her watercolor illustrations into delightful decor for your home and body. Leah’s work has been scattered all over the internet at various boutiques and blogs. I’ve already raved about her Moon Phase Scarf, a most recent collaboration for Leah, Rachael & Julia.
Over at Etsy you will find even more scarves and other garments, as well as totes and prints for your walls. Even though she’s currently on holiday vacation, bookmark it and check her out at Society6.
Plus, she’s got a thing for drawing flowers and cats, which I just can’t resist ogling.

Sarah McNeil illustrates portraits in such a delicate manner, softly painting in pigments with flourishes of color to accentuate cheeks, collars and rainbows beaming from pockets. What I love most are her pet portraits; someday, we’ll honor our little Lima and Peru with a custom characterization.
