New artist crush! :) Saelee Oh‘s works has that lovely charm. Looking at her illustration, I felt like being taken to a dreamy fairytale world somewhere. I love her color palettes. I especially adore the way she combines illustrating and paper cutting art. I am a fan.
Looking at works from talented artists like her makes me want to take an illustration class. :)
These ones are from her recent solo exhibition called “Tangled Tales“.
I’m so in love with these hand-drawn illustrated typography by Katie Daisy Lombardo. She works mostly with watercolor and acrylic. I love her style and the colors are just delightful. Things like these really inspires me to learn more things to become a better designer. That’s why I’m taking Watercolor and Printmaking next semester :) So excited!
Back to Katie’s work, aren’t you just so blown away? I’d love to have any of her print on my studio wall one day :)
Whoahh… it’s been a busy week for me. I’m not particularly glad that it’s the weekend already because I’m so much in a working mode *huh*. Anyways, here are five of my favorite finds this Friday. Have a great weekend, y’all!
. Das Jahr Poster by Marlene Reidel. I’ve been painting so much this week and that’s why I can TRULY appreciate the artist behind this AH-mazing poster! Beautiful details! Makes me happy just looking at it through my screen :)
. Bread Shoes. Not sure what I feel about this *lol* It’s pretty amusing!
. Gocco feature on SSC. This reminds me that I really need to get my little machine out from under my couch. I have a gem under my couch and I haven’t been using it!
I have a major illustrator crush on Amy Ruppel. Yesterday, I posted about the Dunny Series 2009 and she’s one of the designer. Her dunny is probably my favorite out of the bunch. She was also the illustrator behind Target’s awesome Holiday Campaign in 2007. Now you’ll go “Aha! I remember that!”
She has these cool painting/illustration of state animals and state birds up for purchase at her website. I think these are so, so cool. I really like the fact that this is mix media. She mentioned on her website that her main medium is computer illustrated drawings printed onto paper that is then layered into beeswax. On these state animal & bird paintings, I think she also did oils on wood along with the paper & wax. So amazing!!!
Can you guess what state animals are these?

What about these lovely state birds?

Those paintings would look so great hanging on someone’s wall. Love it.
