Alexandra Snowdon


Loving the work of UK-based artist Alexandra Snowdon.  She is a self- employed illustrator and hand lettering artist, working on commissions from a range of worldwide clients. On Design Juices she says this about her work:

‘The lettering and illustrations in my prints are all created by hand, starting off as tiny pencil doodles in my sketchbook. I complete the finished pieces using ink (if I want the design to be bold and striking) or pencil (for a softer look). The designs are then either transferred to a silkscreen for hand printing or output on my giclée printer using fade resistant, archival inks. I try to keep computer usage to a minimum, using it mainly as a tool to clean up and rescale my artwork. I try not to make it look too ‘perfect’ though, I love seeing evidence of the human touch and all it’s quirks and imperfections.’

You can find the artist on her website, Instagram and Behance.  You can purchase her prints and cards in her Etsy shops.

Oeda Letterpress

We are loving these simple and delicate stationery designs created by Oeda Letterpress, a small print shop located in Osaka, Japan. It was initially operated by two persons, a pressman and a designer. Together they produce letter sets, postcards, washi tapes and textiles. The graphic designer works freelance under her studio name, Forest Design.

You can view more of the work on their website, Facebook and Instagram.

Eyvind Earle (1916 – 2000)

Eyvind Earle was an American artist, author and illustrator, who began painting when he was 10 years old and had his first solo show in France when he was 14. The fine artist and printmaker produced distinctive interpretations of iconic American landscapes. He was already a well-established artist when he joined the staff at Walt Disney Productions in 1951 and was the lead stylist for the film, Sleeping Beauty. He also designed over 800 greeting cards for the American artist Group and continued to create independently after leaving Disney Studios. In 1966 he returned to full-time painting.

You can view more of his work on his website and some of his serigraphs are available on Gallery 21.
