the art of emily wick

i like maps, and what fun style we have here from artist emily wick. this linocut series of state mottoes she’s created would definitely make for some fun gift giving. to myself.

this reminds me a little of those awesome neighborhood map posters from jenny beorkrem. except these are much, much different.

see more of emily’s work here, where you will find a lot of other wonderful lino prints and some paintings too.

new veneers and blocks by michele bosak

you might remember i am a big fan of michele bosak. i really like these new pieces from her, keeping within her softly dreamy, vintage-styled theme. the blocks are made of solid wood and the veneer pieces of oak. each image is a xerox transferred by hand.
