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.

Our August catalog drops today and we are so excited! Shot at a quaint Pennsylvania farm, this is a very special book that has some very special models: the dogs and cats of The Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society! Many of our own pets were adopted from animal shelters, so this is a topic that really hits home for us! Our hope is that this book might help raise awareness of all the doggies and kitties that are hoping for good homes in shelters across the country! Click here to find an animal shelter in your area! Also, don’t miss Kevin’s interviews with the animal models at the shoot! They are so cute!
Aside from our lovely animal models, another very special thing about this catalog was our photographer! For this book we were very lucky to get the photographer Dahlen. Dahlen is an amazing fashion photographer, and he has even shot Madonna! Check out this fun video of the master at work, at the shoot!
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!
