Tropical Summer Scenes That’ll Make You Want to Escape to the Beach

Summer illustrations by Angela McKay

Today is the longest day of the year, so it seems fit­ting share the work of Angela Mck­ay, aka ohkii stuio. Based in Brook­lyn but hail­ing from Aus­tralia and Thai­land, her gouache and water­col­or paint­ings fea­ture sun­ny scenes of swim­ming and trekking through lush trop­i­cal gar­dens. If you’re stuck inside all day (as I am), each of these sum­mer illus­tra­tions will offer a momen­tary reprieve from the com­put­er screen.

Charming Embroidery Patterns Highlight the Collaborative Nature of the Craft

Modern embroidery patterns by Thread Folk and Lauren Merrick

Whether you real­ize it or not, col­lab­o­ra­tion is inher­ent in embroi­dery. To begin, an embroi­dery artist will cre­ate a design and make it into a pat­tern for oth­ers to com­plete as they wish. Col­or choic­es, for instance, can change based on the whims of that par­tic­u­lar stitch­er. Lib­by Moore of Thread Folk takes this col­lab­o­ra­tion idea a step fur­ther with her mod­ern embroi­dery pat­terns. In her charm­ing Artist Series, she trans­lates an illustrator’s work into some­thing that any­one can com­plete with a nee­dle and thread.
