Anybody in need of any Art Direction?

Well you’re in luck because as of last week I became the Art Director at my company. Kind of a huge deal in my books and I’m really stoked about the promotion!

This means busier than ever days at work, to do lists that I never actually get all the way through, and tons more responsibility. All in all, it’s a good change!

Anywho, you can send congratulatory fruit baskets to Eryn Chandler, 12 Art Director Way. So enough about me and onto more about me…

I was talking with a fellow graphic designer just the other day about our favorite letter forms. Since college mine has been the lower case ‘g.’ Mainly because there are oh so many opportunities for rad design with this letter form. So many things to do…neon signs just being one of them:

I’ll take that sign, Eames rocker, and pillow thankyouverymuch.

And remember when I said how much I needed a Moroccan pouffe? Well I found another delightful one via the 184935839 design blogs I follow. Behold…

I spy a cute lil pouffe in the lower right hand corner.

Hope you all have a splendiful weekend. Ciao!

I have an artist crush

Ever since finding her site and her etsy shop I’m totally smitten. Geninne Zlatkis is incredibly talented with pencil and paint brush in hand. She’s known for her very detailed bird and animal watercolor prints. The colors and compositions just sing.

Upon visiting her etsy shop on an every other day basis these days I have trouble not buying them all. Recently I purchased two…one for me and one for my mom (who is equally obsessed). As she lives in Mexico the packaged took about 3 weeks to get to my doorstep. But oh man, when it arrived I was over the moon. They’re just as beautiful in person as they are on her site.

The “Love Wins” one is for our home while the blue bird with yellow flowers adorns my parent’s casa. Ours is the perfect addition to our little window seat art nook and I’m already thinking about which ones I’m buying next. I think I need at least one more, I mean it only makes sense…

AND if I didn’t need reason to love Geninne even more, she’s a dog lover. Check out her dog Turbo’s blog!
