I love the look of Rainy Prints, who create these really nice hand-pressed linoleum cuts. So affordable, too. See the process to printmaking here on the Rainy blog. I love this blog – a teaching blog. I’d love to find more blogs that explain a process, like how to sew, reupholster furniture, how to get started on a letterpress, textile design, etc. I know they would be very time consuming, and most small business owners do not have the time to blog about their work in addition to create, market, ship, deal with customers, present at shows, etc. That’s why a blog like Rainy Prints is so unique and special to me. Do you know of any process oriented blogs on said topics?

Vintage modern digital art from John W. Golden really pops! Combining digital photography with digital illustration, his commercial work in design and animation has been seen on Cartoon Network, Animal Planet, Nickelodeon, CBS, TNT, TBS, PBS, TechTV, and now… on Etsy!

Ashley Goldberg of Kitty Genius is a long time fave of mine… Watch this girl. I blogged her over the summer here. Her work can now be found online at Velocity. She’s created free gift tags, available on her blog, for fans of her work. Click here to download them. I like her use of colors, and of course, the sweet forest scenes and little costumes her characters wear. I often look at art and try to imagine what the artist was thinking, why this or that is there, what it means, why they’ve incorporated it. I’m sure you do the same…

I plan to post a whole slew of Etsy finds over the next few days, especially since I shop there so often for gifts and I can’t resist sharing some of my favorite sellers with you. First up, I absolutely adore Milly Molly Mandy of London. I love her illustrative work – the girls are so pretty with their serene faces and caged birds, all in the most serene color combinations. This is a must shop! I ordered several for myself, now it’s your turn.
