Audrey Kawasak-it-to-me

Phew... Sorry for the little hiatus. I guess I just needed a week off. But I'm back and the new year is here my dear friends. Back to work, back to school, back to black!

I know everyone is already up in Audry Kawasaki's biz but wowie zowie. Her paintings and drawings are always so beautifully rendered with this soft, pretty, girly feeling. And always with a twinge of eerie.

Zuk Zuk

How could you go wrong with titles like Jelly Bean Birds, Jewel Bears, and I Run to You? I like how she alternates between a dark outline and a light one. Just Lovely!

Great colors for the new year Zuk Zuk girl.

Of the Young & the Restless

Two longtime friends, Pearce Williams and Courtney Landholt, own this extremely aesthetic textile business. The majority of their designs are hand painted then hand printed.

I can't say enough about the palette for this collection. The colors are right on and fresh. (Black, white, coral, yellow, light blue)

Even with the strange name Of the Young & the Restless, ( yes, it starts with a preposition) they do not fail to deliver.

They have some really pretty Victorian looking birds in two different colorways in this collection as well. But because I am anti-bird I cannot post them.

The coral shells remind you of any one? Namely... Ellie Curtis?
