Art in the Afternoon-Kilroy and Maw

I can hardly stand it, I love these prints so much. AND I happen to love me some fine swine too. Really, really longing for these super cool gig posters and art prints. Can you dig it? Sarah Watts has a super cool website and blog that you MUST check out. A recent Ringling School of the Arts grad, she is one talented illustrator people! Kilroy and Maw have been cranking out screenprints for a year now, and check out their Etsy shop too. She will be hanging out at the Blanchard residence at Art in the Afternoon on June 5.

Kilroy and Maw,
Kilroy and Maw are an energetic and fresh-thinking Atlanta team who create gig posters and art prints. Just getting started, the duo has a lot of new art in store. They are working with other artists for an ongoing project based around craft beers! Kilroy and Maw like to create art that is affordable and handmade so more people can enjoy it.

Art in the Afternoon-Helen Ferguson Crawford

Ok, one last time, the countdown to the June 5 Art in the Afternoon event! This is the last date in the series (phew!) and just so you know, I saved the best for last! These artists are the cream of the crop in my opinion. I cannot WAIT to see some of these works in person. So here's the first featured artist, Helen Ferguson Crawford, who happens to be on the postcard that is distributed all over town too. Her work is certainly a feast for the eyes, and her use of color is so rich and full of complex layers, absolutely delicious!

Helen Ferguson Crawford,
Crawford is an artist, registered architect, mother and avid postpartum depression advocate. Featured as one of “30 Artists: 30 and Under” by The New York Times Magazine in 1994, Crawford has contributed art work and architectural work to exhibits at The Urban Center, The Van Alen Institute, The Municipal Arts Society of New York, L’Institut Francais d’Architecture, The Wexner Center, and the Museum of Modern Art. She has provided commentary for NPR, Metropolis Magazine, and The New York Times. She received her fine art and architecture degrees at Parsons School of Design in New York, and Princeton University.

Hothouse flowers

A painting I finished yesterday. Playing with some of my favorite collage elements, asian joss paper and sketches on gampi paper. This one will go in Decatur Gallery for the reception on Saturday night. Hope you can come out to see it in person! It will also be available in my Etsy shop soon.

Frog Royale

This little frog prince was done a few years ago and it occurred to me that it would be a sweet gift for a baby's room, so I created a print for a friend of mine who had a baby shower this weekend. The texture and style is a little different, it made me remember how I liked to use oil pastels with acrylics, as well as being a little more free form and scribbly with the tiny drawings in the background.
