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!

Kieran, a 6 year old from Norfolk UK, not only painted the amazing watercolor above, but many many more! His paintings are just beautiful, and the fact that he’s 6 years old is incredible! Check out this little video clip about him below! It’s really cute and cool!
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!

Japanese designhouse Felissimo is starting up a new project soon, and it’s pretty cool! For 33$ a month they will send you a different assortment of 25 like-colored pencils each month, for 20 months. The different colors have names like Arizona sunset and drizzly afternoon, and come in really awesome packaging – works of art in themselves! I can’t afford to subscribe, but maybe someday! Until then I’m enjoying the pictures! If you want to subscribe, or you just want to look at all the fabulous colors, check out the website!
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!
