  1. If Only…

    November 6, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    LeLuni creates these adorable laser-cut wall clocks for kids (and perhaps adults). I’ve been eyeing the Pappa Black Hare, it would look perfect against the stark white walls of my bindery. 

  2. Artist: Ginette Lapalme

    October 4, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    There are so many wonderfully happy things happening in the world of Ginette Lapalme. Bright colors, child-like doodles, diamonds and cats. So many cats! I have quite a soft spot in my heart for the fury little creatures, mainly due to my affections towards my own felines, Peru and Lima. I have no idea what is going on with her art and sometimes that is a good thing.

    I recently received my own cat amulet from Ginette’s Etsy shop. To my surprise I received my necklace in a mint colored box decorated by hand with marker and butterfly stickers, sealed with pink cat motif tape. In addition to my fabulous new necklace, I also received 2 itty bitty artist books and a yellow strawberry eraser (just like the ones I use to collect as a kid).

  3. Artist: Jennifer Sánchez

    I love to layer, this is true when it comes to my fashion, my work and my plate. So it’s fair to say that I love Jennifer Sánchez’s paintings. Each piece dons neon colors layered onto neutral tones, shapes zigging and zagging in all different directions, patterns overlapping patterns.  Jennifer’s work is available all over the internet: buy original work on Etsy, open editions at Society6, or fabric prints at Spoonflower. Then you can make your own garment and layer up. 

  4. Artist: Becca Stadtlander

    August 15, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    As an illustrator, Becca Stadtlander creates images worth more than just a thousand words. She develops scenes and characters of magic and intrigue. Plus her sense of color is magnificent; she can flood an image with warm tones without it being harsh or over baring (see Living Room below). As a bonus you can purchase prints of her originals through her Etsy shop. 


  5. Artist: Sanya Glisic

    July 26, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Sanya Glisic is an illustrator and printer located in Chicago, who cleverly creates dynamic imagery with the use of a few colors (combing muted and saturated) underneath lines varying in thickness and depth.  I first fell in love with Sanya’s work through her zodiac series being sold through her Etsy shop Horsedrawn Carriage.  Jason and I own the two screenprints shown above; I find myself getting lost in the details, studying the fine line work in awe.

    Sanya’s illustrations perfectly marry the foul and eerie feeling behind the cautionary tales in the 19th century German publication of Struwwelpeter.  In 2010 she reprinted the tales alongside the illustrations inspired by them in her own artist book.  


  6. If Only…

    July 25, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    I’ve been ogling these wall mount hooks in the shapes of US States for months.  I want to buy one for every state that I’ve lived in (Nebraska, Illinois, California, Texas and Massachusetts).  You can choose from a wide range of colors for the base and hooks.  Check out the Etsy shop for Old New Again.

  7. If Only…

    July 18, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    These dice letterpress print are extraordinary.  Who knew dice could withstand the pressure of a Vandercook.  Bryan Christopher Baker of Stukenborg Press is a printer living in Detroit who painstakingly arranged 520 die for each layer of the print posted above.  The shapes and pathways created by the dot pattern is both rhythmic and mesmerizing.  Jason and I already own two prints by Stukenborg and I’ve become continually enchanted by the ways Baker has reinvented the patterns and illusions of this work.
