Irina Kruglova

Chicago based designer, Irina Kruglova, aka Monscribbles, creates striking illustrations of modern life using patterns and textures. Her colorful vector artwork focuses on simple shapes and line with a minimalist aesthetic. Kruglova recently turned her sights on illustration after a decade of working in graphic design. She finds inspiration in the quotidian and states, “I love to peer at things around me. Some may think I’m a weirdo or a creep when I can’t take my eyes off a person or object. But in fact I’m not, it’s just the way I observe the world around me.”

The pattern-like designs of photographer, Mandy Barker, are not only beautiful but they also carry a heavy social message. The photos, composed of debris washed ashore from around the world, aim to generate an emotional response to our consumption of plastic materials and bring awareness to the long term effects it has on our environment. View more of her work here and make sure to read each caption. It definitely makes you question your purchases.

Black & White, Twelve Quilts is an exhibition that celebrates the craft of quilting. Of course black and white is one of our favorite palettes but is especially refreshing for a folksy craft like quilting.
