First, I want to give a warm welcome to two new Design^Sprout writers Claire and Kristen. I fell in love with their blog So Sweet & So Cold awhile ago and pestered them to share their green and handmade finds with us! They are both creative and crafty on their own so I'm sure we're in for some inspiring finds. Welcome guys - so glad that you're here!
Below is Kristen's first post ....
I get the feeling that the folks behind these fantastic & unusual
illustration pieces are the sort who doodled on their desks and book
covers in elementary school. I guess I'm in good company, then.
Gorgeous illustrated tea set by Esther Coombs (above) depicts buildings from New York City & Amsterdam.
Unusual illustrated pendant. I love the detail, and also the weird combination of the Victorian-style face and the television. From Tilly Bloom whose entire shop is just delightful.
Original paper & acrylic artwork. The strange, fluid shapes, from Rochelle's Little Ones, contrast so well with the text behind them. I love how this appears so casual & doodle-esque, but has an amazing attention to detail as well.
