Whimsy. I need more of it.

While I was harshing on some images in  La Petite Magazine, I neglected to mention some of what I liked in the current issue. I adored the beautiful spread by the artist Laura Di Francesco

I think her images have a nice mix of whimsy and imagination. They are quite affordable too. I think they would be beautiful framed in a nursery.

 

While I didn’t adore all the feature shoots in this issue, I really appreciate the inclusion of such amazing handmade illustration. One of the great things about online magazines is the direct way they can link you with a product or artist. Clicking on her images led me directly to her beautiful blog and Etsy shop. amazing. Kudos to La Petite for featuring some excellent, accessible art. Check it out!

Whenever possible, I try and purchase art from people I know. Mostly it’s because I absolutely love their work and also because I believe in the good karma that comes from artists supporting artists. I just picked up this…

It’s a 2012 calendar from the artists Corina Dross and Josie Mosser. It’s just the right amount of quirk and foreboding, and beautifully illustrated. I love. Get one!
