  1. 'Helper' by The Pin Pals
These two ladies know where it’s at. One works from Denver, one from Montreal, and they create loads of nice things. Their quirky illustrations and paper doll puppets make me smile every time I look at them. Their use of bright colours against soft, and textural pen lines gives a very surreal look to the quite ordinary scenes their characters are placed in. Great job ladies! I’ll be purchasing something more from you in the near future (they are usually around the Toronto craft show scene!)

  2. 'Bouquet' card by Becca Stadtlander
Becca is one of my new favourite artists. She is one of those creatives where I had such a hard time picking just one piece to show (more will surely come!) Her use of watercolours is just beautiful, creating wonderful scenery and imagery so full of colour and life. This painting specifically - from her greeting card collection for Little Otsu - is so lovely I want to have a giant version plastered on my wall. She’s definitely a talented lady.

  3. 'What I Wore for the Jubilee' by Rebecca French
Illustrated ‘what I wore’ outfits are my favourite. Not only do you get to see what the artist was wearing, but you get to see their illustrative style shine through in rough, fashiony form. Rebecca seems to have a couple of styles she works in: more cartoony, eclectic people and places, and more realistic pen and ink works. I wouldn’t have known the two could come from the same talented person! Talented and stylish.

  4. 'Make Good Things Happen' by Peachlings
What a lovely piece of artiness to hang on a wall! Peachlings makes her prints all the way in New South Wales, Australia (where a heck of a lot of creative people seem to hang about - what’s up with that?) She uses cute and inspiring phrases in neat fonts and prints them on fun patterns - just the thing to give your wall that little perk of sunshine it needs. She’s also got some cute animal prints. Deer and foxes - how can you say no?

  5. What a great photo taken by second-hand clothing boutique Common Sort. These guys and gals know how to make such sweet outfits for summer. These clothes should be frolicking about at a beach carnival while their wearers eat cotton candy and dance in the waves. I want them all!

  6. 'Fedrigoni's Gelateria' by Joe Stephenson
This piece of graphic wonderment comes from a very clever UK designer named Joe Stephenson. The minute I saw this I couldn’t look away - such simple shapes and lovely colours! Joe designed these promo pieces for a paper gallery’s gelato night. Sounds a bit strange but I suppose they were trying to drum up more customers, and how could they not with these amazing promo materials! Makes me crave sweets just looking at it.

  7. I know I don’t usually post photographs, but this one makes me smile so much I just had to! This product photo from Tabio brings about all kinds of happy feelings of spring. Seersucker, sand, water, and floral socks - what more could one ask for on a lovely spring day?

  8. 'Mountain Man' by Nan Lawson
I have blogged about Nan before, however I just stumbled upon her website again, found some really great new illustrations, and I just had to share one with you (believe me, it was a hard decision trying to figure out which one to post). ‘Mountain Man’s charming grin and peaceful face greets you on the homepage of Nan’s website, and I couldn’t have been more pleased. He is the perfect little welcoming committee, with his wooly toque and prominent moustache. Great job, Nan, your work just gets better and better! And sweeter too.

  9. 'Green Farm' tea towel for Kauniste Maatila by Matti Pikkujämsä
This tea towel was designed by Scandinavian illustrator Matti Pikkujämsä for Kauniste Maatila. Most of his works have strong colours and childlike imagery, bringing you back to a simpler time. Also, his work has hints of 60s retro styling and book illustration. I love the simple farm scene on this tea towel, and how he used so few colours to express it. This, and a few of his other tea towels, are sold in Toronto store Mjolk, if you live in the city and want to pick up one of these lovelies. A little too nice to dry your dishes on, maybe?

  10. Cover for ‘Anthology Magazine’ Issue 6 by Chloé Fleury
I have just become entranced by Chloé Fleury’s work, since I saw this piece on the cover of this season’s Anthology Magazine. She makes all her pieces by cutting and folding paper, creating beautiful “paper illustrations” that are wonderous to the eye. She has also created a few neat, and one very beautiful, stop-motion animation (‘Amy, I’ - check it out) with her paper-cuts. Her pieces are like candy - I just want more and more!
