Pick of the Week: Lindsay Campbell

This week’s pick is Lindsay Campbell/Pound Puppy and her wonderful stickers that are just pure joy. Rather than blather on about them I thought I’d just show them one by one as they are all very unique and beautiful. I wish she’d make more prints of her works especially if on good quality Giclée paper, it’d be heavenly but I’ll take what I can. She does sell originals and other things quiet often through her Facebook page if you’re interested, and her store as well. Now onto some of my favourite stickers in my collection.

Things That Make Me Smile

The last Things That Make Me Smile post until 2016! As I always say this is one of my favourite posts to put together and this one was no different.  November has been very quiet for me so there is not a lot of photos this month but December will be the usual bit of chaos making sure I get everything mailed to Vancouver on time for my friends to enjoy their presents, and celebrating not only my best friend’s birthday but also Victor’s. Right now I am currently working hard to get my holiday cards ready to mail out and just recently setup my Christmas tree.  Not to mention it’ll soon be me and Victor’s 6th anniversary and we are currently planning on getting tattooed together. We are just finalizing everything for it now and I am pretty excited about doing it although a bit nervous as I haven’t gotten tattooed in years. Lots of planning it seems, anyways this month’s selection of things that make me smile…

This is actually the first time I am using my Copic markers, which is proably a waste of really expensive markers but since my friend Zara gave them I haven’t had a reason to use them (as I can’t draw).

August Treasures

I am back! After a month vacation I am finally blogging again and I wanted to ease back into it with one of my favourite posts to do every month – my list of monthly treasures. This month features two items from the Little Pink Kitten because I just love everything they have to offer and other odds and ends that gave me that summerish vibe (which I am still pretending it is despite Montreal being in a constant state of rain and storms). My favourite item this month is the Eat Your Feelings sticker pack from Lindsay Campbell who just started selling them this week – I can’t wait to pick some up although everything here are all high on my want list!

Also as a side note, I have no internet for the next few weeks so posts might be going up at random times when I can get to library or local café but I am still hoping to post Monday to Thursday. Let me know in the comments any of your treasures from August.

Zine of the Month: Girl Glue

This month’s zine pick is Girl Glue, a collection of work by various female artists put together by Mel Stringer. There is two issues out of Girl Glue to date and some of the artists include have been Wishcandy, Rudy Fig, Lilly Piri, Bec Winnel, Buttons,  Lindsay Campbell, Mab Graves, Natali Koromoto Martinez, Gemma Flack, Hungry Designs and others. Both have 30 pages of content to enjoy, and the production quality and size of both zines is superb. One of the main differences between the two zines is that issue one featured the work of over 50 artists and issue two takes a different format and does 1 or occasionally 2 page profiles on 27 artists.  While I like the larger size of the work featured in the second issue, most of the profiled artists are already respectively well known in their communities and it honestly didn’t contain any artist I wasn’t aware of before which is what I loved about the first issue. I love collective zines for discovering new artists and the second issue came across more as the top artisans of Etsy (which isn’t a bad thing but felt a shift away from the first issue). I do love the colored cover and back page however of the second issue over the colored paper cover of the first. Both recommend to pick up although I don’t know if it’s possible to get the first issue anymore. The newest issue #2 is currently available to purchase through Mel Stringer’s store here.

Pick of the Week: Lindsay Campbell

Lindsay Campbell is an artist from Montreal that I found out about through the Artist for Animals exhibit (still happening in Montreal at L`Entree des Artistes). Her work is vibrant, beautiful, frequently haunting, and sometimes just plain cute. Her work is delightful and her incorporation of animals in her work will speak to anyone who is a fan of four-legged friends. I`m beyond excited to have 3 prints of her work and have them hanging them in my studio space. If you are more interested in seeing her work in person you should check out the exhibit still going on, she does have a print available to purchase through the Artist for Animals website as well, here.

For more informaiton about Lindsay Campbell or to see more of her artwork, check out her website .
