refinery29 graphic artists & the women’s march.

This Saturday, women in cities all over the country will march in protest of hate, intolerance and acts of violence on the inaugural weekend of the 45th president. While I will personally be participating in the Boston march, the largest and most prominent of these demonstrations will occur on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.. Inspired by the Women’s March, Refinery29’s creative department has created a series of graphic compositions which speak to the spirit and mission of these demonstrations. I’ve shared just a few of my favorites below but I highly recommend checking out the entire body of work here.

bits of inspiration – #97.

I have this reoccurring issue where every time I try to do my holiday shopping for friends and family, all I can seem to find are gifts that I would like to receive. I was searching the internet this week for some unconventional subscription services that might make good presents and came across Papirmass, a subscription model which delivers exclusive art prints by up-and-coming artists to its subscribers. I love how this business seeks to lift up its artists while simulataneously enriching the homes of its subsribers. If I didn’t already own more art than can fit on the walls of my apartment I would absolutely be enrolling myself in this service.

Papirmass also hosts a blog on its website where you can see more work from artists and read about new features to the subscription service. Below I’ve included some of my favorite pieces from Papirmass’ December featured artists, Matt Harrison Clough. You can read an interview with the artist here.

Came across the portfolio site of illustrator, Camilla Perkins today. I love how vibrant and whimsical her work is and I am in such awe that she only graduated from college in 2012! Her subject matter spans portraiture, food, animals plants and everything in between. Take a moment to check out her website and blog at camillaperkins.com.

from the 2016 webbys – 2 kinds of people.

2 Kinds of People was the 2016 People’s Voice winner for the weird / web category in this year’s Webby Awards. I came across the site for the first time today while browsing through this year’s list of winners and found myself drawn to these simple illustrations with their funny and direct observations about how people live and organize everyday things in their lives. Below are a few of my favorites. I encourage you to check out the site along with all the other Webby winners.
