New iPhone Covers

We’ve had to take an unplanned break from the blog lately, but just thought I’d post a quick little update on some iPhone covers that were recently made featuring my artwork!  All are compatible with 4 & 4S models.  :D

Andrew DeGraff

A few great recent pieces from our overly talented friend, Andrew DeGraff. We can’t get over just how freaking good he is.

 

John Jacob Omenhausser, Civil War Sketchbook

John Jacob Omenhausser was a Confederate soldier imprisoned as a POW at Point Lookout, MD for a year, between June 1864 & 1865. He documented his time there in a sketchbook full of watercolors, this sketchbook can be seen here. Here are a few of his drawings.

Handmade Holiday

I hope the rest of you aren’t as behind on holiday shopping as I am.  Every year I say that I’m going to start in October, but that never seems to happen.

Anyway, I just wanted to remind anyone who may be interested in ordering drawings or prints from my Etsy shop, that it’s best to order by next Friday, December 17th, to receive them by Christmas.  Happy shopping!

Amanda Nedham

While searching for some inspiration for an editorial illustration I’m working on, I came across Amanda Nedham’s work.  Alas, it has nothing to do with the job I’m doing, but it did distract me from it while I spent some time on her site.  Dark, creepy, lovely, and right up my alley.

Hurricane Portraits

Now that Hurricane Earl it officially cruising up the east coast, we thought it might be the perfect time to share this series of hurricane drawings created by our very talented friend, Stephen Floyd.  You need to click to enlarge, because each of the 30 hurricanes comes complete with a short and often hilarious bio.  I’m not sure if any of these are still available, but I’ll fight whoever gets in my way of owning one.

See the rest of the series HERE.

Graphite Magic

Holy hell, my eyeballs just fell out of my head!  These drawings by Marissa Textor are incredible.  I’m not 100% sure what her technique is, but she should guard it with her life..  or I may just try and steal it.

Worst. Airport. Ever.

I spent almost 8 hours at LGA airport yesterday waiting to leave on a flight to Chicago..  I am now convinced that a portal to Hell opens up there after 9pm.

Love, Sweat, and Tears: Wedding Invites Part I

The tears being tears of joy that we actually finished these babies!  We’ve received a few emails from friends & family asking us how we created our wedding invites, so we decided to do a little (and by little, I mean long) post on it.  Read on below:

Brecht Vandenbroucke

As you know by now, I have a very hard time editing things I like.. Every computer I have owned eventually gets so crammed full of clipped images, it starts acting like it’s elderly.  Anyway, when I first saw Brecht Vandenbroucke‘s work, I was instantly in love.  I have so many favorites, there’s absolutely no way for me to trim this down.

Even still, I highly recommend checking out his Flickr site.

Thersic Press

So we opened a letterpress factory in our studio this past weekend, printing what seemed like 1,000,000 of our wedding invitations.. but we’re still not done.  Since we have multiple colors and 10 different printing plates, we still have a long way to go.  Despite it being scorching hot in the studio and the work extremely tedious,  it was also really satisfying seeing them come out. We’re definitely still letterpress newbies, but I’m kinda proud of them so far!

To be continued..


Patrick Hruby

If illustrations were a season, these pieces by Patrick Hruby would definitely be summer!  Really wonderful, fun work.

Rifles Drawing 1877

I clipped this out of a poster published in 1877 protesting the disputed election results. This was a tiny part of the poster, nice I think.

A Bunch of Creeps

I love these colored pencil portraits by Toronto native, Winnie Truong (who, I’m pretty sure I read is only just graduating from college..)  They’re actually all pretty large, which you can see hanging up on her blog here.  I hope she does a 100 more of these.. either way, she’s bound to have a promising career!
