Back in June, we fell in love with Emma Block and her adorable illustrations, with her Style Icon collection striking a chord. The London-based artist has added more vintage-tinged art paying homage to the fashionable ladies of decades past, including Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and the bewitching Stevie Nicks. Swoon over the wonderful prints below, and head on over to Ms. Block’s shop for more.
We’re big fans of Kaye Blegvad around here. Along with creating pretty much the only jewelry we’d wear — her designs are gorgeous and totally unique — the England-based artist is also an illustrator with a quirky portfolio full of hand painted pieces. Not too long ago, she released an adorable line of girls brushing, pinning and braiding their hair in a simple color scheme of black, red and blue. We just adore this collection, which you can spy below, and head on over to Ms. Blegvad’s blog to see what she’s working on.
Speaking of Julia Rothman, when the Brooklyn-stationed artist isn’t creating unique scarves, she joins the likes of Marc Johns in designing an adorable line of temporary tattoos for Tattly. Featuring kooky wrist watches that read “late” or “love,” beverages of the alcoholic and caffeinated variety, an array of best friend inspired ink and vintage pieces, it’s easy to see why we’re over the moon about these faux-tats. Rothman’s illustrations are executed beautifully enough to want on your skin, yet they carry an extremely playful aura that makes them perfect for mixing, matching and temporary wear. Spy a few of our favorite designs below, and hit up Tattly to see Ms. Rothman’s entire collection.
New Zealand illustrator and knitter (have you seen her lovely handmade mittens?) Sarah McNeil recently self-released a collection of ink drawings and ideas assembled into a cute little book. As the first art book McNeil has made, Start Small Pt. 1 catalogs moments from three years of the artist’s life, and if her zines/prints are any indication it’ll be chock full of darling illustrations and musings. We can’t wait for our copy to arrive, but in the meantime you can peek inside the petite, hand bound book below and purchase one of the limited edition pieces while you still can!
