Linzie Hunter

I’ve been a huge fan of illustrator Linzie Hunter—especially her hand lettering—for a while now. So I was psyched when I somehow managed to snag the last small “Coney” print from 20 x 200. They went fast—so for those of…

Julie McLaughlin

Like a lot of my internet finds, I came across the work of Julie McLaughin in a completely roundabout way. After a string of clicks I didn’t quite keep track of, I found some of her poster designs (which are…


I love the delicate precision of these illustrations by Francisco Miranda of TOOCO—such a beautiful, restrained color palette. His website is currently under construction, but you can browse more of his work on Flickr. via Illustrativo

Color Happy 9

Intense color from painter Sam Songailo. There’s so much layering in this piece that it was difficult to pull out all the colors, so I’m sure I’m not doing the palette justice, but the swatches do look pretty amazing together.…

Friday Fun

I saw the Kawaii Not book awhile ago, but I never realized that the “cute gone bad” illustrations originated as a web comic. Check out the rest right here.


Love this series (especially the color palette) by Pietari Posti, an ongoing personal project that currently includes 11 images. Hopefully he will eventually make them all into prints, but for now you can purchase this one in t-shirt or print…
