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.

Wakaba

Found these intricate embroideries on Japanese handmade market site, Minne. We could not find much information on the maker which is typical of many Japanese site. What we were able to gather is that this gallery is known as the handicraft workshop, Wakaba, translated as “new leaves”. You can view more of her exquisite work on her Minne shop site.

Kit Couture

Probably would not come out empty-handed in this Copenhagen shop, Kit Couture. The company sells project kits that contain everything needed for a particular design whether it be knit, crochet or embroidery. Their designs are inspired by Scandinavian traditions and current Danish fashion. We particularly love the pillows and stocking designs but they also carry women, men and children’s fashion and accessories. The bonus is that they ship worldwide.

You can view their designs on their website, Instagram and on Facebook.
