The Animal Print Shop‘ is exactly as it sounds and it’s one of those rare simple and wonderful ideas that you wish you had thought of. It’s a series of photographic prints available in several sizes of quite possibly all of your favorite animals just hanging out and being the amazing creatures that they are. There is an enormous amount of personality on display and the raccoon prints in particular made me wish those little buggers didn’t claw around sometimes in my attic because they are absolutely adorable.

The Future Mapping Company is producing some very unusual maps that bridge the gap between functionality and decorative technical art that any good graphic design lover would appreciate. I am thinking about picking one up to put in our studio. They are very reasonably priced and each has an interesting feature making them unique works of graphic art.

I am digging some of the prints available at Another Example produced by Former McFaul designer/illustrator Elliott Grubb. They are simple clean and interesting. Definitely look sharp on a wall. Nice to see the whole ‘holding up my poster to acknowledge it’s physicality’ trend is still hanging on for dear life.

Blik recently added an entire series of wall decals featuring the art of Keith Haring who was famous in the 80′s for his simple but provocative drawings that flooded the NY subway system. I have long been a fan and have a massive book of his work always handy on my coffee table. It’s extremely tempting to pick one of these up for the studio. Super cool, simple and direct imagery that would surely spark some conversation. RIP Keith.

Moonassi artist statement:
“I draw something I’d like to draw and I can draw well. I draw people because that’s what I’d like to talk about. I prefer to draw in a small scale as I wish to capture my everyday thoughts and feelings during a limited time of the day. If I think I want to touch you my drawing reflects that thought. I draw an act that I’m upsetting you if
I think I want to distress you.

The reason why these ephemeral and scattered thoughts are so significant for me is that I can see myself as a tiny fraction like those thoughts, and also I’m the collection of those fractions. I’m the mundane being, a sort of dust everywhere. I’m anyone or anything in anywhere. I want to sweep and gather all those tiny little fractions on paper so as not to be scattered.”

The drawings of Moonassi are absolutely divine. I could only imagine how a large series of them would look hanging in a gallery. Beautifully contemplative work.

If you are looking for some affordable art to give as a gift over the Holidays, you can find all kind of art goodies at Poketo. They have really grown from their original ‘wallet’ days to include, apparel, prints, stationary, homeware, accessories and more. I recently received an email from them and decided to check out their storefront and spend a little time there and was really impressed by the wealth of what they now have to offer. It’s always a pleasure to discover another site or vendor that is trying to make art affordable for everyone.

The print above was created by the ‘Little Friends of Printmaking’ and is just one of several offered in the Poketo print store.

20×200 got in touch yesterday to let me know that they have added the work of Chad Hagen to their already impressive cache of prints. Chad’s make believe ‘nonsensical’ info graphics swept the art and design blogosphere some months back. Now you can hang one on your wall.
