May Etsy Finds

Brian Ness

Etsy really is filled with incredibly talented people! I thought it would be a good idea to share with you a few shops that are inspiring me right now!

I encourage you to take a look at each shop, click on the links I've provided, buy the stuff you love, and support small businesses!

 

GUNNAYDRI

Gunnaydri has these fantastic scandinavian pillow characters that blow me away! I love her simple blocks of color and great geometric shapes! It's fun to see someone do something similar to what I do, but that feels totally different!

Viking Child

Quill and Fox

Quill and Fox is my total hero. I am absolutely obsessed with her work! Her colors are fantastic, her subject matter is witty and interesting. (and I mean, another shop with a Krampus card? How could I not love them?) I am so impressed. It's hard to only pick three favorites, but I had to grab just a couple!

Lord Ampersand Card

 

 

Moglea

Midwest represent! Moglea's work is absolutely stunning! Her colors are rich and beautiful, and her text is so striking. I really like when her work gets a little moody and saturated.

Honeybell Thanks

ARTANDPEOPLE

ArtAndPeople is filled with these wonderful illustrations and paintings of plants and succulents. I love the moody colors - they seem a little bit melancholy while still being really joyful! Here are a few favorites:

Cactus and Agave Landscape

MIRDINARA

MirDinara is all about tea towels. Her Uzbek heritage has influenced these wonderful, brightly colored designs that I am absolutely obsessed with!

Here are a couple of my favorites:

BLANCUCHA

Cosas Minimas by Blanca Gomez in Spain. I love love love her work. It was hard to pick only two to feature. Definitely check her out. I love her modern take on midcentury illustration. Her colors are great, and each piece tells such wonderful stories!

Central Park
