Drinking wine with my best pal and sketching Tweedledum Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, illustrated by John Tenniel.
etsy find of the day: fashion paintings from kathryn elyse. the artist uses watercolors and ink on paper to recreate fashion looks from top designers. she sells both originals ($125-200) and prints ($20) in her etsy shop. my favourites include this louis vuitton, vivienne westwood, alexander mcqueen and tim walker. these would look excellent anywhere in your home, but i can imagine them at the end of a walk-in closet…maybe one day!
'people got a lot of nerve' - neko case. the girls jumping rope on the elephant is wonderful. the video is illustrated by the extremely talented julie morstad, whose drawings are available on her site. this one might be my favorite.
ten dollar drawings is a blog helmed by alicia lynn carrier, a talented artist living in portland, oregon. for just ten bucks, alicia will send you one of her original pencil drawings on a paper bag, which can then be framed and put on the wall. alicia takes requests for the paper bag drawings, and also offers her signature drawings on wooden blocks. some of my favorites are the teacup, the cupcake, and the garden gnome. these drawings would be great to have in your home or to give as gifts.
