Artist: Good Egg

I just love these! Check out the first sweater, it has robots all over it! All of these items were designed and hand knit by Good Egg. She says a knit stitch is like a pixel, what a great description. The last item is a pattern available in the Good Egg store (and I just bought it, YAY). The hubs suggested that for my colors I should do some sort of pretty white on white version of it which I think would be pretty awesome. Although I'm going to have a hard time being pulled away from the bright pinks and greys in the yarn store. I'll be in Wisconsin in a week or so to see the fam and celebrate my bday, I can't wait to use this project as an excuse to buy soft expensive yarn. Woo Hoo!

Artist: Madeleine Floyd

I am in love with these paintings by Madeleine Floyd. I used to live by a park that had a duck that would stand up super straight just like the one in the first image. How darling! I love the name of the painting in the third image: "Ode to Jam". To see more fantastic pieces of art check out Madeleine's website here.

Artist: America Blasco

There's something about these drawings by America Blasco that I really like. I just love the sketchy free feeling of the lines and the pop of neon color. To see more check out America's blog and flickr site (where you can also see some cool photography).

Artist: Sarah Ogren

I love these beautiful collages by Sarah Ogren. She uses collage to explore the layers that make up the human experience of an individual. You can definitely tell that there's a history and story behind each of her characters. To see more check out Sarah's etsy store and blog.
