Nan Lawson’s work always makes me smile. So I thought it would be a perfect way to wrap things up this week. Her illustration shop is packed with awesome print after (even more) awesome print. And Nan also has a few greeting cards sprinkled in there for good measure.

I hope your weekend is full of summer fun (there are only a few weeks left here in the states until fall) and relaxation.

P.S. Use the code STITCH at Nan’s Etsy shop and get 15% off your entire order. Yeah!


..the outfits of an imaginary girl?

I almost feel silly saying this, but these outfits drawn by illustrator Danielle Gundry-Monji are so awesome, I’m kind of jealous of the girls wearing them.

Danielle’s shop, Bunny Dee, is filled with digital illustrations like these with her signature pastel color palette.

Fellow cartoon and illustration fans will embrace the work of Derek Sullivan, a graphic designer and illustrator with a kitschy, animated approach to art.

I appreciate the sly, dark humor in some of his pieces. Sure, the Narwhal seems innocuous and cute enough, but his Xenophobia and Angry Mob pieces are wickedly funny.

To tell you the truth, I’m pretty tempted to buy his whole alphabet series, but you can also choose a favorite letter for a low price (starting at $5!).
