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.

This winking illustration by Helena Pérez Garcia made me smile.

From Weird to Great

Love this message and poster design by James Victore.

Digital Stickers by Thoka Maer

One of my favorite GIF makers, Thoka Maer, just released a digital sticker set.

(Love that everything goes to the artist and GIPHY doesn’t take a cut. Classy!)

My Life by Mr. Bingo.

A Manifesto for Creative Resilience

Illustrator Wendy MacNaughton and writer Courtney E. Martin created a manifesto for creative resilience. Three versions of the above poster are available online — red, white, and blue, black and white, and rainbow — with all proceeds donated to Hedgebrook, a rural writing residency for women.

Kevin Waldron

Kevin Waldron is a Brooklyn based illustrator. His tiger paper collage won my heart and is now proudly watching over us in our co-working space. Check out his work and his prints for sale over on society 6.

Completely charmed by these GIFs. Well done, Timo Kuilder.

Fuzzy Yellow

Next time someone wants to label you with something you’re not, just tell them you’re Fuzzy Yellow. This made me and my kids laugh.
