Artist Feature: Carolyn Suzuki

Artist Feature

It’s our favorite time of the month! Our November Artist Feature is Carolyn Suzuki, an illustrator and designer whose work is sure to put a smile on your face! When I happened upon Carolyn’s work I fell in love immediately. The bright colors, graphic style, and quirky designs are right up my alley and I knew I wanted to share her creative genius with the world! She is a mom of two boys and manages to balance her time between creating and mothering, a feat in itself! Take a look inside Carolyn’s creative process and make sure to check out her work on her website, online store, and Instagram!

Artist Interview: Kelsey Garrity Riley

Artist Interview
We were lucky enough to have Kelsey Garitty Riley as our September Artist Interview! She was also our book club artist for “The Glass Castle”, and we absolutely love what she came up with! If you haven’t seen it, make sure to check out the printable here. That being said, Kelsey grew up in Germany and Belgium before moving to the US to pursue her art career. She studied at the Savannah College of Art and Design and now resides in New York. We’ve taken a peek inside her studio and asked her a few questions to better understand her process and thoughts as an illustrator. We hope you enjoy this behind the scenes look into her creative wonderland!

Artist Feature + Color + Design / Wednesday, 7 Jan 2015

The work of Sarah Illenberger

Every so often on the blog I like write fan letters to artists. Don’t worry, they’re not long or anything. It’s just a little bit of text to express my awe and appreciation. I’m much more contained than I was in my high school N’Sync hysteria days. Please oblige: 
What???? Who are you? Can we be friends? Or rather, can I just sit in the corner while you just be? OR, I’d happily come volunteer as your assistant. I’ll do anything you want. Coffee runs even (I’ve never made any but I’ll learn!). 
Love,
Brittany Jepsen
Right?! You know what I’m saying? I mean, the colors, the cleverness. Fruits! Flowers! Cactus! Agh! Maybe I need to learn photography once and for all so I can finally start creating the type of still lifes that live inside my brain…
You know?!

Art + Artist Feature + Design + flowers / Wednesday, 21 Aug 2013

Oversized flower paintings

You know this has my name written all over it. Thomas Darnell has created these amazingly beautiful oversized floral paintings–in this case it’s peonies–and it’s just enough to make your jaw drop. AND, he lives and works in the South of France, so pretty much, yes he’s living the dream. Aren’t these too much?!

I will gladly accept this as a gift. Big huge wink.
