images of springtime, courtesy of etsy

i put a post up for the photographers of etsy team blog earlier this week, saying that I’m yearning for spring with all it’s soft freshness and optimism, and then i thought why not do a little something like that right here in this space too, because you can never get enough positive inspiration…

kareem rizk collage art

ooh am i loving these fun limited and open edition collage prints from melbourne graphic designer kareem rizk today. to create his traditional collages, kareem uses a multitude of materials including oil pastels, acrylics and pencil. he also uses digital techniques to add pieces to his collection. to me either technique produces a consistently meticulous assembled piece, with strong retro-modern influences and intelligent use of negative space.
