Forgive me if I have already blogged about this, because if I have, I have already forgotten!  I was inspired to make this fun dino planter for work from Plaid Pigeon (I think their shop is closed right now).  But when I saw the fun dinosaurs I was sure that I could make my own!  I have no brothers, so I was SHOCKED to find out how expensive a simple plastic dinosaur is.  I found my Tyrannosaurus on EBAY, it is a vintage 1985 dinosaur (oh fancy!).  Here is the process of my planters creation:

...and VOILA!

7 Plagies

I love this bottle design for 7 Plagies wine that I came across on Lovely Package.  The font styling for the 7's look like juicy lips to me and I love the color choices.  Makes me want to drink it!

You Can Go Your Own Way

A few months ago, my friend MW posted on her blog 'a daily dose of design' about these map art designs.  I came across this great map giftwrap idea and this print on Pinterest recently.

kris atomic

I follow a blog called kris atomic, the writer is a freelance illustrator and photographer.  I think her illustrative style is so cute and bubbly.  Love this recent(ish) illustration she did with textile designs from another designer:

Joel Penkman

I came across Joel Penkman, graphic and fine artist on Design Sponge the other day.  I love his paintings, they very much remind me of Wayne Theibaud, who is one of my favorite artist.  His paintings are very dainty, pastel and mostly are of various foods and confectioneries.
