Christmas has come early for Wendy Edelson this year! The talented artist has spent quite some time working on her very first fabric collection, and finally, it has been manufactured and is available for all of your happy quiltin’-apron makin’-fabric lovin’ needs.
“Cookie Jar Treats,” created for Wilmington Prints, is available now. You can also learn more from the enthusiastic artist by taking a look at her charming blog here.
This year, the Italian fashion giant Brioni is celebrating its 65th birthday, and Carlo Stanga’s deft hand is the perfect choice for their elegant and distinctive campaign.
Attracted to his “fresh and modern stroke,” Brioni has opted to eschew fashion’s customary glossy images in favor of Carlo’s playful – yet sophisticated – illustrative style. “We feel that illustration is a warmer art form than photography,” the company says.
In addition, the company has collaborated with Wallpaper* Magazine for their “Wallpaper* Handmade…in Italy” exhibition, which will be celebrating their many milestones with a commemorative Moleskin notebook illustrated by the talented Carlo.
You can read more here, and of course, congratulations to Carlo!
Flashlight Press recently released its 2010 Fall Catalog, and it was delightful to see Wendy Edelson’s joyful critters dance across the opening spread.
“Pobble’s Way” is the heartwarming story of a winter walk between Father and Daughter, a lost mitten, and the woodland creatures’ curiostiy about the mysterious object.
You can pre-order the book here…and congratulations, Wendy!
Shannon Brady’s energetic work often seems as though it is in motion, so it is entirely fitting that he silkscreened this fabulous image for a bicycle poster show in his neck of the woods:
The show, “Local/Euro,” will take place at the Bikery in Stillwater, Minnesota, on July 24th from 7pm to midnight. We hope to see you there!
It seems remarkable that a collaboration between two distinct talents could be so seamless, but we aren’t the only people inspired and amazed by the duo of Kurt Huggins and Zelda Devon.
Molly Crabapple recently interviewed the wunderkinds for the great blog Chinashop. You can read more about Kurt, Zelda, their influences and their work, here.
It is good to remain open to creative change and inspiration, even after we have established a solid reputation and style. It is these slight alterations that allow us to continue exploring and developing, and Judy Stead recently posted a great new image and article on her own blog that I found to be inspiring in this simple message. You can take a look here.
