Every time I look at this image I start to giggle. This dashing sailor seagull with a pipe, aptly named Sammy, was created by Wayne Pate, an illustrator from Brooklyn, New York. Wayne’s style is really simplistic and almost kind of retro, using lots of great patterns and the perfect pairings of color. I’d also recommend checking out his shop, which features a ton of prints, all 18 x 24″, and 95% of them are only $35… that’s such a good deal for such rad prints and there’s just about something for everyone.
David Huyck’s wonderful Cloudy Collection is already back again with a second edition of beautiful two color silkscreened prints. This time around the artists involved are David, my old chum S.Britt, Scott Campbell, Bwana Spoons, Chris Eliopolus, Vera Brosgol and Vincent Stall. The theme of this series is Hovels & Hideaways, which is such a cute idea and the artists really nailed the concept.
Pick up some for yourself, their only $35 for all of ‘em, plus free shipping in the U.S. and Canadia.
More previews under the cut.

Today feels like some kinda weird flashback day, but sometimes these things happen. Diana Koenigsberg is a Los Angeles photographer who I posted about almost 2 years ago (so crazy) and she happened to email me today letting me know that she had started an Etsy shop where she’s selling some of her prints. I love Diana’s style, there’s just something so vibrant and fun about it. She has 10 prints up for now but hopefully she adds more!
It’s supposed to be 88º in Los Angeles today, so I’m headed out to the beach for the day. But I thought I’d post this great little print called Can You Imagine which was created by Trey Speegle. He recreated this vintage paint-by-numbers by “enlarging it, silkscreening it on canvas, mixing a fresh palette of 60 colors, blocking out the text and painting in everything but.” And for $20 you can get yourself an 8 x 10″, not bad, right?

I got an email from the extremely talented David Huyck last week letting me know that he started a new project called The Cloudy Collection featuring beautiful letterpress prints. There are 7 prints total, with contributions by Meg Hunt, Bill Fick, John Martz, Amy Crehore, Tom Kaczynski, Steven Weissman, and David Huyck. David also went out of his way to make sure that these are environmentally sound, as the prints are made on 4 x 6″ ivory-colored bamboo paper using 100% vegetable-based inks, and printed with all wind-power by Boxcar Press.
The series of 7 are only $35, plus there’s free shipping to the U.S. and Canada. A portion of the sales are also going to the Nature Conservancy. Basically this is the most awesome little print project I’ve seen in a while. He should have another set in a few months,and I’m sure I’ll post about them then.
