Anna McNeil

 

Anna McNeil‘s paintings are perfect parts abstraction and realism, the division sign drawn with her paintbrush. In each piece she’s after your perception of a given moment, which is most likely informed by your own memory of experiences. You create the narrative from there, she just manipulates it a little.

Voider Sun

 

Soft, emotional, dreamlike illustrations and paintings are what Voider Sun is bring to the table. The Bengbu, China-based artist has quite the way with fuzzy edges that have the ability to make you fall into a daydream in a heartbeat.

Kristina Micotti

 

Kristina Micotti is a Bay Area-based illustrator who turned her doodling into a full-blown career, aka living the dream. Though her work jumps between minimal and detailed, there’s a definite air of whimsy throughout all of Kristina’s portfolio. Her shop is full of good stuff, too – lapel pins, totes, portraits, and more!

Nevertheless, She Persisted Tees!

 

LET’S TAKE THIS ONE STEP FURTHER. After our hugely successful post full of printable #resistance postcards some of you reached out about the possibility of selling my design as a t-shirt. My gears immediately started turning, because why hadn’t I thought of that??

I submitted my design to Cotton Bureau (a favorite business right here in Pittsburgh) and as of today you have two weeks to purchase it on their site! The shirt is being offered in white, maroon, and vintage black in both men’s and women’s sizes for you to rock on your hot little bods. (Note: None of the shirts are pre-washed, but should only shrink *maybe* half an inch if washed in cold water.)

Half of all proceeds are headed straight to the ACLU! So buy it, wear it, and stand up for what you believe in.

Edward Walton Wilcox / Haunted

 

Edward Walton Wilcox really nails the gothic aesthetic with his art. His latest series, Haunted, is flat out amazing. Even though they’re paintings on board they have a chemical wash feel to them that I absolutely love. If you’d like to see some really intense work be sure and look at his entire portfolio!

Glenn Barr

 

I’ve been a space nerd since childhood (REINSTATE PLUTO AS A PLANET!), and Glenn Barr‘s seedy pulp art aesthetic meshes so well with the subject that I couldn’t help but be sucked in. The Detroit-based painter captures retro space travelers and haunting women inspired by cult films from the 60s and 70s with open storylines that leave you wondering just what happens next.

February Favorites

This is a new series that I’ll be sharing on the last day of each month, a collection of favorite things that I’ve been using in my everyday life that I hope you’ll love like I do. These can be beauty products, recipes, accessories, whatever. Just a chronicle of great things!

 

1/ Oregon Chai Sugar Free Chai Tea Latte Concentrate
I’m diabetic and have been missing chai lattes since my diagnosis almost three years ago. While grocery shopping last month I found this sugar-free concentrate that I’ve been using to make dirty chai lattes (coffee + chai) and get my fix.

2/ Makers of Wax Goods Wood Wick Bourbon Candle
Sometime last year I picked a smaller size of this candle at Marshall’s because I really loved the packaging, but I feel even harder for the scent itself. Since then I’ve been addicted and have this candle in three rooms of my house!

3/ Dr. Jart+ Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer
My skin has been flipping out this winter – flakey and breaking out. I’ve had to amp up my skincare game in a big way and this moisturizer is my latest discovery. It’s so lightweight, is absorbed immediately, and makes my skin feel plump and nourished.

4/ Scentered Therapy Balms
Part of my bedtime routine, somewhere between feeding the cats and reading Twitter one last time, includes the Sleep Well balm. I just rub some on my wrists and breathe deeply in and out five times. During the day I rely on the Stress Less to help keep me focused.

5/ First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydra-Firm Sleeping Cream
I alternate between three different moisturizers depending on how my skin is behaving. This one is great to put on before going to sleep when I’ve had an especially stressful day and maybe haven’t eaten the best.

6/ Sephora Collection Lotus Face Mask
For Christmas my friend sent me a package full of different sheet masks and this one has made me a devotee. (You can actually get two uses out of sheet masks if you put them back in their package and make sure it’s tightly closed.)

7/ Herbivore Botanicals Jasmine Body Oil
Again with the dry skin. This body oil is super pure and smells heavenly, so much so that I skip the perfume on days I wear it.

8/ Fashionable Mini Tirhas Saddlebag
This bag was a Christmas gift from my stepdad that I’ve been carrying every day since. I’m a longtime fan of Fashionable and the quality of this piece is outstanding.

9/ NOW Rosemary Essential Oil
I’ve been adding this rosemary essential oil to my diffuser every afternoon before turning it on for an afternoon pick-me-up. It makes the entire first floor smell so fresh and clean.
