How awesome are these paintings by Amy Ruppel?! I love them! She has created one for each of the 50 United States, featuring the state animal of each one. Painted on wood, she uses wax, paper, and oils. Check out all of the paintings for each of the states right here!

Jill Lin has created these fun illustrations in collaboration with Bando! There is something about them I really like – they are so pretty! I like to imagine what sort of faces would go underneath the hair! Jill has many other beautiful illustrations which you can see on her site.

Now for part two of the photos our Art Director, Doub, took on her trip to London!
While Doub was in London, whenever she was out walking on the street, she would take pictures of all the cute girls she saw! Click here to check out the first set!
These amazing and colorful sculptures by Ara Peterson are made of wood! I only wish I could see them in real life, because they are optical illusions as well, and appear to be moving before one’s eyes! Regardless, I love all the colors and textures!

I am in love with these beautiful old floral paintings. Dear Ada found them, but she has no idea who painted them! None of the commenters on her blog knew, but maybe you do! At any rate, if you like these as much as I do, check out Dear Ada’s post – she has the images in a much bigger size if you click through, and then you can use one as desktop wallpaper! You know I did!
It’s funny how something so simple can be so appealing! The movement and colors in these ribbons of paint by James Nares are just so eye-catching! It makes me want to go put paint ribbons all across the walls of my apartment… I don’t think my landlord would appreciate that so much though…
