Today we have a wee hedgehog entitled “Fall Hedgehog, flowers” by Katie Vernon (aka ChipmunkCheeks on Etsy).

In her shop you’ll find lots of lovely, whimsical creatures but I love this little hedgehog and the wonderful colors of his bouquet! The colorful little figure in his hill of whitespace would be so cute in a little girl’s room!

    Bear and woodland Creatures, Fox, Deer, Hare, Badger is the wonderful work of Tracey Long, a freelance artist living in the countryside on the border of England and Wales. Her work is so lovely, so whimsical. (I am always in the mood for some whimsy.) Her shop on Etsy is called Chasing the Crayon and can be found here. But this print is my favorite. (I have a thing for woodland creatures. Maybe I watched too much of Nick Jr’s Little Bear well into my 20s. Who knows?)

    In honor of good ol’ Saint Valentine, we have this sweet couple today, printed by Eszter Schall of Budakeszi, Hungary. She attended Novus Art School in Budapest and now focuses on illustration and graphic design. They’re sweet, don’t you think? They perfectly show what I love about love. They’re shielding each other from the rain and content with each other in this beautiful, but semi-depressing scene.

    I hope each of you have a perfectly lovely Valentine’s Day!

    Bookhou is John Booth and Arounna Khounnoraj, a husband and wife design team residing in Toronto, Canada. Along with their Etsy store they also have a brick-and-mortar shop in Toronto and an online shop of their own here. They design and make items such as handbags, scarves, paper goods, ceramic items, and more inspired by the organic lines and shapes found in nature and urban landscapes. John has been trained in painting, architecture and woodworking, and Arounna started out making sculptural works before changing her focus to design and textile work. Oh, and they also have two little kiddos to raise. Their design aesthetic is that wonderful mixture of modern, urban and organic, filled with those geometric shapes we love so much these days.

    This week’s print is Spent by Heather over at whiteoctopus. Residing in Texas, she lives with her husband and “goofy cat.” She is completely self-taught, which is amazing! Most of her pieces are made with watercolor or guache. Find more of her lovely, low-priced prints here. Find her personal blog linked at the bottom!

    Also, not all of her prints are of cephalopods!
