Steven Harrington Prints

I’m insanely attracted to the work of Steven Harrington. I would own everything he creates if I could. I especially want the peacock screenprint below, but I’m afraid he has sold out. The man just oozes with talent, I imagine he walks around with this amazing aura of positivity and bursting with energy. Look at these illustrations, and the colors, this is serious talent, people! I know I’m gushing, but sheesh… I’m smitten. These are the times when I wish an oxygen mask would pop down from the ceiling and save me. Deep breathe, Holly.

Discover Independent Design: *New* Trunkt LookBook!

Have you heard about the all new Trunkt? Dev Tandon just wrote to me and I had to get this up on the blog ASAP because I know so many of you will just love it. Trunkt works very hard to champion independent design entrepreneurs through both their brick and mortar location in NYC and online. With success in both areas, they decided to branch out and create the Trunkt LookBook.


The LookBook features the works of their members, all art and design entrepreneurs, who use this as a resource to tell the world about what they do. Membership is only $99/year and is open to all. The LookBook contains the profiles of designers, along with product shots, industry jobs, events, and many other cool features. Learn more about membership and features here.

Wow Dev, wonderful resource, thanks for sharing!
