new art

It’s been a long time since I’ve dug around on Etsy. Partially because I’ve been busy, but mainly because I always fall in love with so many wonderful things and have a seriously hard time escaping with an empty cart…
…and so, voilĂ  – today’s purchase: an antler drawing and flower photograph

all the buildings in new york

James Gulliver Hancock is attempting to draw all the buildings in New York. His journey can be followed on his blog – where you can also purchase (and commission) these illustrations. I think they are awesome.

manhattan or brooklyn

Back by popular demand, these Manhattan and Brooklyn maps just became available (after selling out) for pre-order. While I suppose I’m partial to Manhattan – as it’s the place I’ve called home for many years – I love them both equally.

A friend of mine gave me a heads up about a graphic designer in brooklyn who has recently started a t-shirt/print line called 200pt – an ode to the font size. His first collection is called “the new romantics,” and I am definitely a fan. Currently they are selling these original art prints, but check back soon for these designs to be available on t’s.

Praia Piquinia

I absolutely adore this photograph. So much so that I have considered purchasing it on a daily basis for the past few weeks… I think that means it’s time to take the plunge and make it mine…

A message from the artist, Christian Chaize:
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust

Five years ago, Portugal did present itself as a new landscape in my life – both literally and metaphorically. Since then, I have photographed exclusively along a very small stretch of its southern coastline. Returning to this specific place, I’ve sought out its nuances. In doing so, I have peeled back layers of how I see, and how I experience this magical environment.

For purchase here on one of my most favorite websites, 20×200.

illustrated recipes

I just spent the evening prepping food for a bbq tomorrow night so you can only imagine my excitement upon seeing these wonderful illustrated recipes after I finally finished in the kitchen. I would LOVE to have one of these framed in the kitchen. Simply scrumptious!
