Native Vermont + Nan Lawson + Naturally Nina


How's the week treating you so far? Good I hope : ) The boys and I have got lots on today so do you mind if we get this N started?

Native Vermont

Ryan Fowler from Native Vermont graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 2006. He is currently the Visual and Performing Arts Department Chair at a private boarding school in northern Chicago.

Spending the school holidays in Vermont, Ryan finds the perfect inspiration for new ideas and drawings while he spends time at the lake and walking in the forest.

Based on original illustrations and collage, Ryan's work definitely has that coveted vintage feel about it. The Constellations Polar Bear print (3rd below) is my favourite - which is yours?

Nan Lawson

Nan Lawson's illustrations are as cute as pie! Check out that little turquoise typewriter (6th below) - it is adorable!

Nan's store is chock full of prints from original pen and ink drawings that she carefully paints digitally. I think they are little bursts of sunshine - don't you?

Boston based Naturally Nina has been one of my favourite stop-overs of late...

"I am a writer based in Boston. quite simply, my blog is about living life to the fullest. i also like to muse about love, design, creativity, arts, photography, fun adventures, and yoga. i hope you will pull up a comfy chair, grab a cup of coffee, and join me! :) "

It's a really nice read - enjoy!
