tough vs dainty

How cool are these little delights. They have got to be one of the strangest and loveliest amalgamation of ideas. Combining old school sailor tattoos with the tradition of long white gloves creates a super splendid juxtaposition between masculine and feminine, dainty and sweet, and scary and tough. Well we think so anyway.

They are the work of Ellen Greene a Chicago based artist.  You can check out here amazing array of gloves and other bits and pieces here

Serious Drawings- Marc Johns

Just looking back at our old blog posts and I'm surprised we haven't blogged about Marc Johns before. Love his work, Johns uses ink and watercolours to create his quirky drawings. I've got his "Beard Bird" hanging happily on my wall,  you can buy one of your very own prints here. x mel
