(From top to bottom: "Sometimes I Act Like Myself" by Tim Sebright; "Ode to the Pollinators" by Theater Clouds - Elly Mackay; "Ember Bunny" by Tiny Fawn - Darrah Gooden; "Mae" by Holli - Paola Zakimi; finger puppet box by Lazy Animals; and hand-felted baby mobile by Sheep Creek Needlecraft - Andrea Burnett.)
I started out doing a completely different collection this week, then stumbled upon Tim Sebright's illustration and was so inspired by it I decided to abandon that post in favor of a nursery collection. None of the art featured here is strictly off-limits for those of us who don't have any bambinos, of course. I would gladly hang any of these awesome pieces in my apartment.
I love the retro color palette and whimsy of Sebright's illustration; the texture, layers and light in "Ode to the Pollinators" and "Ember Bunny"; the sweet, storybook feel and loose drawing in Holli's illustration; the super cute finger puppets (that mini pastel bunting kills me); and the wonderful texture and soft forms in the needle-felted mobile. All of these pieces have a soft color palette and a serene, calming affect, don't you think?
