Pattern people love people patterns, ha! We’re loving these fun illustrations by Monica Ramos. Her work has appeared in the NY Times, Rookie Mag, Bitchslap and a bunch of other cool publications. These would make great textiles for cushions or tights!

profile marlene vion 1 Profile | Marlène VionYou might say Marlène Vion is lucky. Having grown up in the textile manufacturing haven of Lyon, France, Vion developed an early appreciation for surface design. Following her studies at the Fine Arts School of Lyon, Vion went on to work for H & M in Stockholm. Her fascination with cardboard manifests itself through the transformation of her flat designs into 3-D interpretations combined with embroidery and collage techniques. An avid tidier, Vion also claims counting and walking as favorite pastimes, while Art Brut and Jockum Nordström keep her inspired. View more of Vion’s work here.

The collaboration between interior decorator Kelly Wearstler and artist Shantell Martin is vibrant and provocative. The collection showcases Martin’s signature graffiti-esque drawings on elegant home decor. Describing her work as a “meditation of black and white lines…” the artist’s work translates beautifully to the collection’s simple interior pieces.

Jack Vanzet is only 23, yet his work is full of confidence and self assurance. I guess 23 is a time for unbounded cockiness, but for most of us, this is usually a shaky back and forth kind of confidence that does not come through in our work. So it is especially impressive to see such a strong creative voice in such a young person. Personally this makes me feel inspired by the freedom and fun expressed here, and also for the color, form and technique.
