I Dream of Letters

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

One of the best details from my surprise birthday party had to be the invites and place settings. Katie hired Miss Danae, a completely amazing calligrapher! Her work is nothing short of perfection, just spend a few minutes (or hours) in her photostream and Etsy Shop, you won’t regret it!

Watercolors by Andrea D’Aquino

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

I stumbled upon the most stunning prints yesterday and just had to share. These watercolors titled Green Zen I + II were inspired by Buddha hands from Tibetan sculpture and medieval European religious paintings. Graphic designer and illustrator Andrea D’Aquino of New York is the genius behind this ethereal set.

Sold as a pair and describe as one being of the woman and the other of the inside of the woman. The colors are just stunning and I love the juxtaposition of the two.

The limited edition prints are sold through The Working Proof which is a site that pairs artists with a charity of their choice, to which 15% of  sales are donated. Andrea has chosen to work with the Shama Foundation which is a nonprofit organization providing education to children of Madagascar. Find out more and purchase them here.

And the Winner is…
