stylish, graphic iphone cases by threadless

Much love to the hubs, but I’ve been secretly meaning to replace my boring, hand-me-down black cloth case for my iPhone that he gave me with something splashy and fun. Frankly nothing has appealed to me until I saw these super cool cases based on 2 popular designs from Threadless, the beloved tee shirt company. These distinctive cases are compatible for the 3GS and 3G and are being distributed by Griffin.

The pale blue case is Birds of a Feather by Ross Zietz, and the canary case is Clouds Within the Thunder from Joe van Wetering. Either piece would make a terrific gift for someone who appreciates good looks and bold, dynamic style.

Find the cases for US $34.99 each online at Griffin or in person at Apple retail stores, and learn more about the talented artists behind these designs at Threadless.

the art of misty mawn

i think these heavily textured paintings with their substantial layers and sensitive motifs from virginia artist misty mawn are so very beautiful. i see restrained exuberance, and graphic details that for some reason don’t feel that noisy. how does she do that?

say hi to misty on her blog and be sure to check out her flickr stream for more artwork and photography.


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.

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.

evadne james glass art

uk artist evadne james has a passion for printmaking and discovered that it takes on a whole different feeling when applied in a glass medium. she’s created a splendid collection of glass art pieces that touch on the loss and understanding of past and current cultural identities and how we are affected by it.
