*BAM!* Just like that another two of my favorites have teamed up for an extraordinary partnership, this time Minted and West Elm. I have several pieces from both company decorating my home and now it looks like I’ll need to add a few of their collaborative prints to my wish list. The collection includes 25 prints chosen from a selection of 1,400+ submissions that you’ll definitely want to peruse!
Denver based artist and designer Sarah Fitzgerald definitely has a way with both shape and color. I’m especially drawn to her los Animales series of unique creatures and the Sanctuaries series that’s full of places of refuge and protection. You can shop Sarah’s prints in her Society6 shop.
By now you may have guessed I have an affinity for food art (even though it’s surprisingly lacking in my home). My most recent food art crush is the shop Anek and its owner, Croatian graphic designer and illustrator Ana. She says the shop and her work are about the simple pleasures of food and cooking as well as the beauty of everyday moments, something I definitely relate to.
Barcelona-based freelance illustrator Judy Kaufmann recently release a collection of four Party Prints, each highlighting her love of drawing animals, people, houses, cars, and trees. Judy’s style lends itself well to these colorful pattern-like creations that could find themselves equally at home in a nursery or living room! Pick up one or all four for yourself in Judy Kaufmann’s shop.

Mid-Century Modern inspired food art. Well, it just doesn’t get much better than that! San Francisco-based artist Jen Kindell‘s signed and numbered prints are each hand pulled using water based inks and recycled French paper. In my dreamworld I’d have a dining room with a cathedral ceiling where I could hang every one from the floor all the way up!
Stacie Bloomfield (of Gingiber fame) has been busy, illustrating one dog breed a week for all of 2013 for her 52 Weeks of Dogs project. Yes the dogs are adorable and yes Stacie is an extremely talented lady. But what I’m most excited about is that prints are available for sale in her shop, and a portion of every sale is being donated to The Humane Society!
