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.

Tetsuhiro Wakabayashi

Admiring this botanical calendar created by Japanese painter, Tetsuhiro Wakabayashi, a graduate of Kanazawa College of Art and Commerce Design.  He created this calendar with the thought that “the beginning of an unforgettable day should be somewhat gentle”.  There are 365 images none of which are the same. 

You can view more of his work on his website, Tumblr, Facebook and Behance.  Some of his original paintings are available in his Etsy shop.
