Complimentary Colors

Cj Hendry‘s Complimentary Colors are hyperrealistic colored pencil drawings. Stunning.

Art In Progress

A post shared by TAPPAN (@tappancollective) on

My son has been drawing on giant paper rolls, which made me show him the above video: Art in progress, featuring Caroline Denervaud aka @ideih on Instagram.

Kindness Looks Good on You

Lovely message and illustration by People I Loved.

Gold Foil + Color Tattly by Jess Phoenix

Team Tattly just launched these four colorful bouquets with a flicker of gold foil by new artist Jess Phoenix. The shimmering of the gold elements really make these stunning.

You would never know…

This illustration made me giggle. It’s taken from Shirley Glaser and Milton Glaser’s Childrens Book called If Apples Had Teeth.

Paper Breakfast Foods

Reina created 100 Paper Breakfasts. She is my hero.

Crochet Illustrations

These crochet illustrations by textile artist Tuija Heikkinen are delightful!

Femke Colaris

I just discovered Femke Colaris on Instagram and I love how serene and consistent her images are. And, I absolutely adore her simple line drawings.

La Linea

I watched Heidi on Netflix with my kids the other night, which they loved. It made me go down memory lane of shows and movies I used to watch as a kid. This one, La Linea is one I looked forward to every week. It is an Italian animated series created by the cartoonist Osvaldo Cavandoli. What are some of the shows you remember fondly from when you were a kid?

Cat Illustrations

This guy by Kamwei Fong made me laugh. There are more cat illustrations in this post.

Wow, I am really a cat person now, am I?

Happy Monday!

This capture by Jason Polan made me laugh. If you don’t follow him on Instagram, and like the slightly weird and absurd, you should. I love what he notices, like the above frozen toy frog. Instead of signing his name he often draws something. And then, he is a really talented illustrator.

Hygge and West Wallpaper

This wallpaper bathroom detail caught my eye in this lovely house tour on Brownstoner. Turns out it’s designed by Julia Rothman, one of our most iconic Tattly collaborators. The best part, the wallpaper is removable.

Rainbow People

Rainbow People by Eleonora Aorsio. Her Instagram posts continuously put a smile on my face.

The Weekend

Happy weekend everyone. Remember this flow chart by Mr.Bingstagram.

Brain Game Print

Illustration by Nick Lu, you can buy it as a framed print here.

Oliver Jeffers

My friend Bas did it again. His personal mini documentaries called Like Knows Like is how we meet in the first place and made me fall in love with his craft. Today he launched his latest masterpiece, with fellow studiomate and friend Oliver Jeffers as the subject. 15 mins well spent.

These Guys

These guys made me chuckle.

Flower Head

Tattly just launched two new designs by Estée Preda. I am in love with this Flower Head.

My Kind of Cleaning

This cleaning GIF by Abbey Lossing made me laugh. (It takes a while to load – be patient!)

Jon Burgerman

The story of Jon Burgerman from Bas Berkhout on Vimeo.

Jon Burgerman is a friend, creative workspace neighbor, a Tattly artist and my son’s creative idol. His most recent book It’s Great to Create spurred many super creative adventures in my house. If you have little ones, I highly recommend grabbing a copy!

Being a fan of all things Burgerman, I was delighted to see my friend Bas Berkhout working on a mini documentary on Jon. It JUST went live. It’s personal and oh-so-timely. Watch above!

And make sure to check out other mini documentaries in Bas’ series called Like knows Like. Here’s the one he did on me, years ago.

Ice Cubes

I love this limited edition Ice Cubes Silkscreen Print by Christoph Niemann. I also recommend his archive of Sunday Sketches.

Wink Wink

This winking illustration by Helena Pérez Garcia made me smile.

From Weird to Great

Love this message and poster design by James Victore.
