Hillary Bird

twilight foxanteloperowlingI’m trying to make a tradition to showcase art pieces that I like on my Wednesday posts. This series comes from San Francisco based artist Hillary Bird. I have a soft spot for artwork depicting animals, especially foxes. To view more of Hillary work, visit her Etsy shop here.

London Traffic

london trafficLast year around this time I was on my way to London for the first time. In the spirit of Throwback Thursday, I’d like to share this charming retro-style illustration by Irish illustrator Peter Donnelly. It’s called London Traffic, appropriately. I love illustrations that incorporate type. In this case, reading the names of the bus stops takes me back on sweet memory lane. Check out more of Donnelly’s work here.

Jay Fleck is another artist I discovered on society6. His work explores the possibilities of a child’s imagination. I like the use of typography in the first one. More of Fleck’s work, including shirts and phone cases can be seen here. Happy Friday!

The Magician

magicianI like the magical and dreamlike quality of Swedish designer and Illustrator, Maja Lindberg’s work. This one in particular, called The Magician is my favorite. It has a Tim Burton quality to it, which explains why I was drawn to it, being a fan of his storytelling and aesthetic. Lindberg’s complete portfolio can be seen here.

The Fox and the Bee
