We went for a drive into the hills over the weekend and saw the gorgeous tulips at Araluen Botanical Park. Spring is everywhere, all around us, at the moment. From the new shoots on our grape vine to the warm easterly breeze that carries the smell of the bush into my office window. It’s my favourite season.
I thought these prints by Beloved & Co summed up our little weekend escape.

I’m an animal lover and I have a very special place in my heart (and home) for kitties which is why I just love these illustrations from Matou En Peluche. Are you a cat person too?
1. Didier and Leon.
2. Polly and her kitten.
3. Fan Boy.
Stunning, stunning, stunning work from my new favourite artist Cathy McMurray. The colours and imagery are so beautiful – they make me want to visit Oregon more than I already do (and that is A LOT!)
I was stoked to see some of the new bits of loveliness from Quill & Fox on Pinterest yesterday. Beautiful colours. Beautiful illustrations (as always). They are in stock so get yours at the Quill & Fox shop pronto.
I’ve never really understood the whole animal-head-on-a-wall thing. To me, it’s a little creepy. I’m thinking Wolfram Kampffmeyer from Paperwolf agrees.
Wolfram studied computer animation at Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in Ludwigsburg, Germany and was a pro at creating virtual 3D models. He decided to take things one step further and Paperwolf was born. I think they look a billion times better than the real thing.
So say no to sad little animal heads. Say yes to Paperwolf!
a – Lion
b – Stag
c – Unicorn
d – Bear
I really, really like the grungy imagery Peter Strain creates. His illustrations depicting cult movies characters are pretty cool. I love the Uma Thurman one in particular. Thanks Peter, now I’ve got the urge to watch Pulp Fiction for the first time in forever!
Carlos Meira was born in Rio de Janeiro and studied at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, where he attended the Arts Course. He has been working with paper since the 1990’s and has since organised several exhibitions, illustrated seven books and worked on Brazilian and international advertising campaigns.
I think you’ll agree that Carlos is an incredibly talented paper artist.
We are in the depths of winter down here. While we may not have snow, we do have some very chilly mornings. I think we should celebrate winter… of course I’m saying that from the comfort of my heated office, wearing three layers and a pair of Ugg’s.
I think this gorgeous circular prints from Moon Garden Art celebrate art. What do you think?
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.
These prints from Oh My Deer caught my eye today. I’m a sucker for a beautiful, hand lettered poster. If you’ve seen pictures of my office on Instagram (@krissyb) you’ll know what I’m talking about. Nothing looks better than a beautiful, flowing script proclaiming some catchy wisdom about getting up, dusting yourself and giving things another go (check out my Words That Inspire board to see what I am talking about).
I think I have *just* enough space on my wall for these three.
