This Not So Good / Not So Bad box by Tina Berning made me look. I might start one of these myself. Also, what a talented illustrator.

The Rhinoceros by Albrecht Dürer

And, today, we added no other than Albrecht Dürer to our ever growing Tattly artist roster. Please welcome The Rhinoceros.

Hello there, dressed Lemur.

Dressed Lemur

There is something about animals dressed in clothes. This lemur by Yago Partal really speaks to me. And, then of course, there’s the Berkley Animals.

Christoph Niemann Tattly

Tattly by Christoph Riemann

My favorite perk of running Tattly is that I get to collaborate with talented individuals like Christoph Niemann. Yesterday, we launched a new set with his designs, it’s called The Petting Zoo. And my kids are crazy for them.

I am a huge admirer of Christoph’s work. You might have seen his New York Covers, his Books or maybe you’ve watched his CreativeMornings talk.

And now you can wear more of his art on your skin. Enjoy!

Cat Drawings

If you’re into cats, you might like these cat drawings by Måns Swanberg.

I adopted a cat from the shelter exactly a year and I just recently realized that I have officially become a cat person. Words I never thought I’d say.

Sad Animal Facts

I just spent way too much time on Sad Animal Facts by Brooke Barber. So man of these illustrations made me chuckle. And soon they’re available as a book.

Illustrator Serge Bloch is showing in NYC, opening reception is today. Love his work!


Daily Doodle

My love for Geffen Refaeli’s DailyDoodle is a deep one. If you don’t follow her on Instagram, I’d highly recommend you’d change that. I keep coming back to the one above as that is how I felt growing up in Switzerland. The guy represents me and the snail is Switzerland.

(We sell some of her designs as Tattly.)

Print by Kristina Sostarko


Loving this abstract print by Kristina Sostarko. It would look mighty fine on my living room walls.

Ecuador Earthquake Lithograph

Equador Earthquake Lithograph

12 days ago Ecuador experienced a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake, killing over 500 people and leaving thousands of families without a home.

Portoviejo, where my friend Juan Miguel is from, was one of the towns most heavily affected by the earthquake. Marin’s family survived but sadly, some of his friends lost their lives, a family member, or their homes.

One of Marin’s way of helping with the reconstruction efforts is through the sale of his drawing of the map of Ecuador, part of his “Under The Influence” series. The earthquake’s epicenter, near the coastal town of Muisne, is shown in the top left. The date and magnitude of the earthquake appear at the bottom of the lithograph. Hemlock Printers in Vancouver, Canada, generously donated 300 lithographs of Marin’s print and all proceeds from this sale will go help the children of Portoviejo.

Each 18″ x 24″ lithograph, printed on 130lb Coronado stock, is signed, numbered, and shipped (this May) in reinforced tubes.

Maira Kalman: My Favorite Things

This beautiful short film follows one of my all-time favorite visual storytellers, Maira Kalman, as she curates her exhibition “Selects.” The reopening of the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum features this collection—an exploration of life, love, joy and loss.

The film traces the story behind one of the exhibition’s highlights: Abraham Lincoln’s pocket watch, restored to tick again for the first time in 150 years. It’s an extraordinary opportunity, Maira observes, to “connect us to history, dreaming and the future.”

Beautifully executed by Gael Towey! Don’t miss the other videos in her series Portraits in Creativity.
