Something a little more arty

I am rather adoring various artists at the moment, so I want to do a bit of a shout-out for some!

Boats in Harbour by Papio Press
Foxes in Space by Papio Press

First off, Papio Press. Zana & Harry were students at my current University, and their products are just beautiful! I kept seeing prints come past my nose and absolutely loved them. They have an Etsy shop and are on Not On The High Street, in addition to a rather beautiful Instagram page. I love their phone cases but they also do posters, notebooks, calendars…

Second, the wonderful Hannah Botma, who did the drawings for Madcap Library. You can buy prints through her shop at Society 6, and she does phone cases, prints, posters, tote bags and more! As you may have guessed, I love her dinosaurs.

Third, Silly Badger Works. She does the most gorgeous animal portraits, and a lot of designs that I really want as posters – damnit, why do I not have all the wall space?!

My favourites are the ratty people (aren’t they adorable?) and the birds she does; the chicken series is a particular favourite but I also love the corvid series. She takes commissions too, so get in there!


And finally, Toby King, who does absolutely stunning pictures of my hometown. I admit Salisbury is pretty photogenic already, but wow does he make it look amazing! I really want some of these as canvases, but the problem is trying to decide which ones…
