Pretty cool stuff! Kinda William Morris-ish. This is a commission we got for Carolyn from a door manufacturer. You never know where your art will take you.
Wednesday: New pieces by Talitha
The subject was, “Making connections between chemicals released in the brain and falling in love”.
It’s so fantastic to be able to do a very cool concept and have it be so visually exciting as well.

Monday: What happens when you ask Carolyn Gavin to do designs for glass doors?
What’s so cool about this is the mix of sensibilities. Here are all the vibes I see: Islamic tile a la Alhambra, vintage American game board, The Land of Oz, gaudy and gorgeous, torpedos and Dr. Suess, Trump’s Atlantic City Taj Mahal. Wow. What a whopping load of cross-cultural aesthetics. Can you top this?
Friday: John Coulter’s new piece for Lola magazine
Dear Art Directors,
Do you crave lovely how-to illustrations of food and domestics? Trina is fantastic with illustrating very detailed subjects in a soft, yet clear way. Her British sensibility comes through. Call or email us to assign.
Wednesday: Amazing photos of Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai

Talitha writes us a charming note:
“Hi there guys,
I wrote my thesis paper on floral symbolism in art and illustration, focusing on floriography, or the secret language of flowers, and I told myself that I would eventually do a series of illustrations based on that concept. Well, about a year later, I finally have one done. I recently purchased two primroses and within several weeks they had wilted away. Usually, I have my grandmother’s green thumb when it comes to houseplants, but not this time. Anyways, I thought in tribute to my poor little primroses, I would create an illustration in honor of them. The text at the bottom of the illustration represents the meaning of giving primroses. Too bad my primroses couldn’t ‘live with me.’
Thanks and I hope you like the illustration. I’ll be working on more in the coming months! And if anyone knows how to keep primroses alive indoors, please let me know!
