Missed Connections

In a similar vein as Linzie Hunter’s illustrated spam and Cardon Webb’s redesigned posted fliers, Sophie Blackall has been working on a series of illustrations of missed-connections ads. I think there is something really charming about writing a missed-connection ad, though I’m somewhat curious if they ever work. These prints are as charming and sweet as the ads they illustrate and are available for purchase at her etsy shop.

Etsy Schmetsy: One Lump or Two?

We Experts are big into tea. Hot tea, iced tea, sweet tea, high tea, tea parties—you name it, we love it. We’re enamored of the pageantry, the accoutrements and—of course—the drink itself. Please enjoy our Etsy homage to this lovely aromatic beverage.canada goose mens jacket

RAD!

We have another new card in our Etsy shop. We’re pretty psyched about this card and had a lot of fun experimenting with the Gocco process inks. We think that the combination of process colors and xerox-y reticulation make this card perfect for the design geek, 80s punk, zinester, electroclasher or grandmother in your life.

Etsy Schmetsy: Gnifty & Gnoteworthy Gnomes

I think part of my desire to live in a little log cabin in the woods is the magical mystique that the forest boasts. I figure I would be bound to befriend woodland creatures of all shapes and sizes—including, perhaps, a gnome or two. Enjoy some of my favorite gnome-y Etsy finds.

My friend Vivian has just opened an Etsy shop, VivianB, selling prints of her photography. I am really enjoying the Float series (see two more from the series after the jump), but some of her other prints are really lovely too. See more of Vivian’s photography on flickr and in her new shop.
