Pick of the Week: LoLL3

This week’s pick is the illustrator Loll3 from Italy who has an adorable Etsy store with tons of stickers, brooches and other goodies as well as a Society6 store. Her artwork is super eye catching and has a lot of occult symbolism in it. I enjoy her color pallet the most as I’m a sucker for hot pink and other vibrant colors. I picked from her Etsy store some of her stickers (which are much larger than I thought) and some cards that I thought I could use as mini prints. As well from her Society6 page I bought a mug for a friend and a large print for my art wall. My favourite item for sure beside the print is the cards, they are so cute and I love how she accessorised the card’s envelopes with tiny artwork on the lip. She also has postcards, which if you follow this blog you know postcards are my weakness. I really love all the items and it’s worth checking out both of her stores. You can also check out her tumblr for a closer look at her artwork or updates on future sales.

Featured Artist: Ruben Ireland

Ruben Ireland is an illustrator from London England that you may recognize as his work right now is everywhere. I’ve been interested in his work ever since I found it random on Society6 last year and even picked up some prints for my best friend’s birthday present.  His work is mostly in the form of digital illustrations and the subject matter varies from haunting female silhouettes to totem like animal imagery borrowed from native culture, and doll like portraits. His older work is a different style to the work he has been putting out for the last year or so however they all share a dark undertone. His female characters are shown as very stoic and still figures almost like they are trapped. He uses feathers, antlers, and other native symbols that are used commonly by hipster culture nowadays throughout his work. I find his work viewed as a whole comes across disjointing and you may find yourself not a fan of all aspects of it but I find that way he explores his subjects is captivating and I really enjoy his dark tone silhouette style pieces. He is defiantly worth checking out and I enjoy stepping into his world. It will be interest to see where he goes in the next few years, he is definitely breaking out.

Pick of the Week: Rudy’s Candy

rudyscandy (2)Pick of the Week: Rudy’s Candy

Rudy’s Candy Shop is an Etsy store run by artist Rudy Fig based out of Minneapolis. Her shop included stickers, postcards, toys and other items featuring her illustrations with the occasional original painting. Her work has a certain whimsical nature that I really enjoy and I always have a soft spot of doll inspired work with big eyes. I picked up this lovely lollipop sticker and some adorable nail decals from her this summer. And she kindly gave me one of her wonderful postcards as well (I covet her new ones so much). I’ve tried the decals and although they are tricky (like most decals for me) the end results are amazing and having them on my fingers makes me feel like I am lost in a story tale. I’ve put photos below showing off more of what I grabbed, but if you want to check out more about Rudy, she has a website: here!
