Get Sprung’ For Spring with Wearable Art by Isa Beniston

hand-painted clothing by Isa Beniston

Last year, Isa Benis­ton wowed me with her play­ful cloth­ing that looked like the pages of a sketch­book. She’s been busy since then; through her retail line called Gen­tle Thrills, she’s released her most recent col­lec­tion for spring, the apt­ly-named Get Sprung. Here, Isa branch­es out from hand-paint­ed cloth­ing and includes revamped vin­tage and mil­i­tary sur­plus pieces into her one-of-a-kind gar­ments. They’re adorned with embroi­dery based on her own draw­ings, and the col­or­ful addi­tions add a con­tem­po­rary look and feel to the­se upcy­cled pieces.

Get Comfy with Illustrated Floor Pillows from Society6

comfy seating from Society6

The longer that Soci­ety6 is around, the more prac­ti­cal prod­ucts it car­ries. (Years ago, I bought a show­er cur­tain that I still use!)  And I’m con­tin­u­al­ly impressed with how they offer illus­tra­tors the oppor­tu­ni­ty to sell their work through prod­ucts oth­er than prints. One of their lat­est offer­ings is com­fy seating—floor pil­lows! Avail­able in square or round shapes, they’re per­fect for mak­ing a cozy read­ing nook. Or, if you’ve got a large fur­ry friend, it could be a fan­cy bed.

Adorable Ceramic Animals Offer a Warm Smile and Home For Your Favorite Plants

Cumbucia Chic cute animal planters

Remem­ber last week when I was declar­ing my obses­sion for planters? Cum­bu­ca Chic is anoth­er online shop that makes my list. Brazil­ian artist Priscil­la Ramos is the wom­an behind the­se cute ani­mal planters, which fea­ture fox­es, whales, sloths, and even tiny capy­bara. Each is adorned with a com­bi­na­tion of shiny glaze that’s off­set by the mat­te stoneware. I like this combination—it offers a nice visu­al con­trast that proves that some­times, min­i­mal­ism can say as much as heavy dec­o­ra­tion.

Felted Animal Planters are the Perfect Companions for Your Tiny Plants

The Yarn Kitchen felted animal planters

I’ve become some­thing of a planter collector—especially those illus­tra­tive that are in nature. I recent­ly filled a (sim­i­lar) Beard­bangs planter with a small suc­cu­lent, as well as a bikini clad pot from Group Part­ner. And, I backed this self-water­ing pot on Kick­starter! May­be col­lec­tor isn’t the right word. Obsessed?

The Yarn Kitchen, with its felt­ed ani­mal planters, is next on my list for my col­lec­tion. Online pur­vey­or Stel­la Mel­grati cre­ates adorable ani­mal-head pots that are per­fect for air plants or suc­cu­lents. Best of all, her planters come in 28 dif­fer­ent col­ors, because, she says, “love is a rain­bow.”

Wildflower Ceramics That’ll Make You Want to Frolic in a Sunny Field

painted ceramics by roootree

Inspired by wild­flow­ers, roootree (aka Kaori) illus­trates their col­or­ful beau­ty onto porce­lain plates, cups, and saucers. My favorite pattern—a mix­ture of tall grass­es and bright buds—seems undoubt­ed­ly inspired by this mead­ow of wild­flow­ers. Kaori has trans­lat­ed the end­less rows of flow­ers into lay­ers of col­or and tex­ture. Using a com­bi­na­tion of tight draw­ing and dif­fused shapes, she cre­ates the feel­ing of depth. It’s as if her illus­trat­ed ceram­ics are actu­al­ly made of a field of blooms.

Kaori sells her wildflower ceramics on Etsy.

Female Activists Throughout History’ Honored in One Glorious Poster

Rachel Ignotofsky Female Activists Throughout History

This week, I’ve shared vibrant por­traits cel­e­brat­ing wom­en of col­or and strong females kick­ing the shins of the patri­archy. Let’s cap off this week with the work of Rachel Ignotof­sky, who recent­ly released a poster depict­ing Female Activists Through­out His­to­ry. “The­se wom­en have fought, orga­nized, and protest­ed the inequal­i­ty they saw around them,” Rachel explains. “This poster cel­e­brates how they helped to cre­ate a bet­ter future. I hope this illus­tra­tion inspires you to use your own unique voice to resist and fight injus­tice.” Half of the pro­ceeds from each sale will be donat­ed to the ACLU in your name.

Illustrated 3D Puzzle Imagines a Beautiful World Under the Sea

Bozka Rydlewska pop up 3D puzzle

It’s been two years since I last shared the three-dimen­sion­al illus­tra­tions of Bozka Rydlewska (aka Bozka). Back in 2015, she had recent­ly start­ed her for­ay into pop-up and tun­nel books. They focused specif­i­cal­ly on botany and were (and still are!) exquis­ite in their depic­tion of nat­u­ral of beau­ty. Since then, Bozka has con­tin­ued her work in mul­ti­ple dimen­sions and cre­at­ed a 3D puz­zle that’s under the sea.
