Art School Girl

A twitter contact of mine, MeanMillies, just sent me a tweet about Art School Girl in Chicago thinking I’d like the paper products and… she’s right! Such sweet finds here.

Art School Girl is Amy Rowan who has a passion for paper and a love for specialty printing processes and so she specializes in one-of-a-kind paper goods that are made by hand. She uses recycled materials that she often prints and sews by hand. So special!

I love when readers tweet me with their finds. Thanks, Millie!

Printmaker Unity Coombes

I found fine art printmaker Unity Coombes on Flickr yesterday and I really like her style, it’s right up my alley. I love this picture of Unity in her studio in Cornwall, England surrounded by her beautiful illustrations. She appears to be quite happy with the work she is doing. It’s so inspiring to see where women create, don’t you think? I especially like her birds with their patterned feathers.

I’m not sure where she sells her work, perhaps she’ll consider opening a shop at Folksy or Etsy (hint, hint).

Illustrator Amy Blackwell

I was thinking this morning that I should occassionally spotlight sellers over at Folksy for readers based in the UK and Europe. Today I’d like to share with you one that I really like, Illustrator Amy Blackwell, whom I featured this morning over at Real Simple.

So sweet!

Pancake Meow

I was reading my tweets after lunch today and one of my contacts, myblueberrynight from Geralyn Design, sent me a link to online shop Pancake Meow. I love Twitter, I can receive updates and links from you, friends of decor8, all day long. Very exciting.

Anyway Pancake Meow is filled with kawaii finds and the prints by shop owner Leslie Dallion are especially cute. I love her Decole and Cram Cream imports from Japan too. Leslie, who is a miniature dessert artist, also sews, draws, makes music with her band called The Lolligags, and designs digital prints. She’s one hot little number.
