Eye Spy: Fab Etsy Art
March 29, 2012
Hey all! I spent the afternoon pulling together the design plan for the kids room for the Alma Project with Cristin of Simplified Bee, we’re so excited about the space taking shape and all the volunteers and vendors that have stepped forward to donate their time and products, thank you so much! I’m so excited for the install and big reveal in a few short weeks. (Still need more donations, so contribute what you can by clicking on the link in the sidebar!)
While online, I was shopping for artwork for the walls on Etsy and we’ve narrowed it down to a favorite series (can’t wait to show you!), but I couldn’t help but notice so many other amazing artists over there, I could be lost for hours. I just had to share a few I stumbled across – some of these might look great on your walls or as part of your collection.
I love Eva Juliet from Montreal, Canada. Her shop is filled with whimsical illustrations from constellations to cupcakes, but I’m particularly fond of the culinary series, perfect framed in a grid on a kitchen wall or dining nook.
Who knows a dude who loves Star Wars? Oh, you’re all raising your hands. Well check out the pop art series over at The Decorium Studio of Laguna Beach, California.
I want my little boy wants one too.
Visit Monorail Studio of Austin, Texas for some very fun and fresh quotable screenprints. They are “printmakers by blood and artists by trade, ink in one hand and coffee in the other.” I love that so much.
Have you seen Quill and Fox? You should, this shop from Portland, Oregon offers sweet paper goods in the form of seasonal and other post cards, my favorite it this terrarium series, send two to friends, then frame the others on your gallery wall.
Parada Creations of Bridgeport, Connecticut is another favorite for the whimsical illustration and excellent use of color, don’t miss the series of passion love prints!
Watercolor is en vogue again, and Jessica Durrant of Atlanta, Georgia does exceptional work. I’m especially drawn to her series of multicolored world maps.
Traveled to a major city and fallen in love with its architecture? You’ll love the colorful series of city prints by Laura Amiss of Amstelveen, Netherlands.
Hop on over to browse the art on Etsy and get lost like I did, there are so many talented artists over there. Who’s your latest favorite?
