I’m really enjoying BlueFlip Art lately, like I needed another place to find gorgeous prints, right? But seriously, it’s a wonderland of delightful work that I’m sure you’ll really enjoy peeking at and here’s why…
The sheer variety of affordable quality prints from artists located around the world is reason enough to visit Blueflip, but another perk is that each print you click on reveals a bio and the charity that the artist will donate a percentage of sales to if you purchase their print. Now that’s smart shopping!

I talked about Irana Douer and her illustrations on decor8 before, but I just heard from her and viewed her latest work so it’s time to highlight this artist again. This time, Miss Irana is experimenting with fabric (last time it was ceramic), a pillow design for Australian gallery Third Drawer Down available here. Lovely! Living in Buenos Aires, Irana is a freelance illustrator, an art student, and curator of online magazine Ruby Mag.
I rather like the idea of having such an special pillow to lay my head on for creative dreams at night… About her work, which focuses mainly on women, she says, “I am interested in women, their thoughts and feelings, especially sadness. Broken hearted women who just want to hide from the world that surrounds them. Masks, hair, closed eyes, anything goes. But that are still very strong and move on and never lose hope.” Thanks Irana for sharing this!
She also just released a colorful 8 x 10 giclee print ($40) in a limited run of 100 over at Poketo in case you’re interested. Lovin’ these bright hot hues.

I wrote quite an extensive round up featuring 60 artists (mostly Etsy) that I think make great prints and art in general for kids’ rooms. I’m thrilled how it came out, I tried to include as many of my favorites as I could so please forgive me if I missed anyone.
It just went live over at Real Simple, click here to check it out!
