“Happily Melting away in the palm of your hands.”


Lacee Black

“The owner of this piece is retiring and moving out of the country. She has graciously allowed me to sell prints of her piece. So with her permission we had a little photo session this evening. Take your fill folks, this is the last time we’ll get to see this baby in person! “


Ruben De La Torre

“Arte Album”


Cassidy Demkov

“Never thought I’d be excited for the month of January but this definitely has me looking forward to 2021.”

“I am so excited to be able to share my newest collection with Cloud9 Fabrics , inspired by all of the Spring flowers popping up in my garden. Go to my website http://www.cassidydemkov.com to see the entire collection or visit Cloud9’s website” https://cloud9fabrics.com/fabrics/perennial/

In my little backyard garden I have doves, birds and squirrels that spend their mornings and evenings at my feeders and playing in my flowers. It was just too hard not to include them in another pattern. They have made an appearance in a few of my patterns because they are just the cutest little guys.


Katrina Flores

“Oh students, how we miss you! We cannot wait till the day when we can have you talented people back in the studio creating beautiful things.

We can still have have great art lessons through technology!” ~ Black Rabbit Studios

Davin Abegg

“Here’s a digital gouache painting I did of @impoppy her new album is really great!” 🤘🤘🖤🖤🖤

Some recent favs I’ve done for @idrawrandomfollowers


Derek & Brighton Ballard

“Twin Peaks aired 30 years ago today. Reposting some Twin Peaks inspired items we’ve created over the past 5 years. Here are some shots of a collaborative coffee release with @bluecoppercoffee and limited edition screen printed poster for Spoke Art Gallery.”

“This pin was actual inspired by The Return | Epsiode 8.”

Listen I know we all have a love/hate relationship with the USPS. Let’s take this time to show the USPS some love. It appears in the race to privatize everything and concede to the desire of corporations, our federal government doesn’t give a bucket of piss for any programs necessary for the good of common people. Only takes a minute or two, start by texting “USPS” to 50409.”

“This is a serious message! We’re warning you with peace and love, we’ve got a new bandanna coming your way! 🚨🚨🚨 This 100% cotton bandanna is inspired by Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away, and is a brand new release for Spoke Art’s online gallery celebrating all things Miyazaki on April 16th! Check out @spoke_art for the details, and join us in your quarantine outfit of choice.” 🛍📦

. . .
Simple lettering style, both done freehand. One with a blue pen and the other with the Pen Tool.”

“Late Night Lettering Lyrics (and song titles).” 🎶📝


Melissa Hurd

“I did a thing!”


Kim Jeppson

“These are some little cards I’ve been painting when I have a minute. They’re not perfect, as you can see. Some of them have blobs that I tried to erase, some of the dots ran together… I really enjoyed just painting for no other reason than I like doing it. There is a power and peace in creating something purely for the fun of it!”


 Matt Page

“The latest piece in a series I started in 2014. Our little guy is now in those awkward teen years.”

“Here is the progression of new Family Portrait drawing I did last week. Start with a really loose and messy sketch, then tighten it up, then put down my inks and shading, then the tattoos and colors.”

“It has come to my attention many dear friends are unclear about I do every day for work. I thought I might spend a little time over the next few weeks clearing up some of that confusion.

Over the last approximately two years I have been working as a product designer for the Pink Paislee team at American Crafts. I have designed primarily scrapbooking lines including everything from paper to stickers and other embellishments. I have worked on 10 collections in total since I started work there.

Also, Salt Lake Design Week was awesome! So much gratitude for the people who made it happen. And super stoked for what next year has in store”

“We were exceedingly lucky to work with Bryan at Paper Obscura on last month’s subscription box, and he asked us a few questions about our work and inspiration. Click through if you’d like to learn more about us and what we have coming up this year.

Paper Obscura, by the way, is a super cool literary subscription box, perfect for any fan of thrilling tales, twisty turns, and oddities of all shapes and sizes. April boxes are sold out, but May sign ups are around the corner!”
