Fresh Imagery

During my early morning commute something new was in the air...could be fall, the blaring of my mixed CD, or the possibility of a new week. I love to savor a good morning. Nothing like fresh air and great design to wake up your senses on a Monday. San Francisco based illustrator Hannah Stouffer "finds a great deal of comfort in imagery- its an admiration that is often times overwhelming. She has an infatuation with icons that reflect and embrace specific eras and genres. Luxury, royalty, muscle cars, heavy metal, the animal kingdom, femininity, horse races and foliage are all somehow connected in her work by embellishments, pattern and decoration."

Love it! Check out more amazing work on Stouffer's site and etsy store.

those are so wonderful with many things to explore within each one. i love the first one, which looked like a chandelier when i first saw it.

Wow, how gorgeous! The longer you stare at them, the more you see in each piece. That moose is my favorite, for sure.

Victoria said...

These are beautiful! They also remind me a bit of the music inspired art work done in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury area during the 1960's.

I love to read about your gratitude for life, living in the moment and savouring it. As 'Heidi Clare' posted a short while ago, "Gratitude turns what we have into enough and more". Sounds like a great start to your week! A-M xx
