Vicki Turner is a designer, illustrator, and maker who has a passion for the natural world. Her refreshing style is the result of a few years of worldwide wandering, and she brings stories to life in a smart, abstract way. Vicki uses symbols and minimalist design to tell complex tales that have multiple way of interpretation.
In addition to 2D illustrations, Vicki also makes things. Her shape-centric work lends itself well to accessories like the pin below. Perfect for someone who has wanderlust!
Denver-based artist Sandra Fettingis creates bold sculptures, installations, and murals using a variety of geometric shapes. “…I strive to demonstrate relationships, communication, change, and mindful attention,” she writes in an artist statement. “I mix and layer materials such as acrylic, styrene, wood, paper and paint, and utilize the laser for its precision, while formulating systematic guidelines, repetition and purposefully restrained color palettes.”
Sandra strives to combine art and architecture seamlessly. Her beautiful pieces, strong shapes are a perfect match with beams, floorboards, and of course, walls.
How would you describe your day, and would you ever think of expressing it through the objects/icons you encounter? That’s what designer Denis Lelic did; He drew pictograms of his daily routine, which features a sandwich, cereal, lightbulbs, an office chair, and more. They are simple, black and white drawings that focus on the most significant details for easy, quick recognition. Lelic writes about his series and states, “Its hard to track every single detail over a day, but here are some points of mine expressed through pictograms and later posters. Some of them are a bit comic but they were my association and triggers for my memories.”

Embroidered bags you’d get at your local bodega/corner store. Who is the artist that did this? I only found this piece on the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Facebook.
