Hello people who are still visiting! I’m moving stuff over to WordPress, so this site is going to look really weird for a few days. I really hope it’s only a few days. I’ll miss Typepad, but I need to use some plugins so I can post stuff to this blog from MLKSHK. Hoping it’ll all go smooth and I’ll have some awesome new stuff up shortly!
So a few people have noticed that I've quit updating – honestly I am still updating… but now I'm doing it over here – http://www.heystuff.com
I've wanted to post about other things besides just prints for a few years now, and hey stuff! is my way of branching out. It'll be filled with the same sort of art that we heart prints has always been, but it's a much wider array of art related objects – originals, books, decorative pieces, toys, sculpture, etc will all have a home here. I'm also adding in kids stuff since my family now includes a happy and hilarious almost two year old who I spend a lot of time trying to find cool things for.
I'm not going to delete We Heart Prints, but the archives have been transferred to Hey Stuff and eventually the url will redirect there. If you want to keep receiving only my posts about prints all you have to do is either visit http://www.heystuff.com/prints/, or subscribe to this feed: http://www.heystuff.com/.services/blog/6a0120a5b9a04f970b0133ec97d618970b/search/atom.xml?filter.q=prints
It's been fun these past few years, I've met so many truly wonderful people and have really been encouraged by all the positive feedback to keep blogging and keep searching for art to share. Thank you all for hanging out with and supporting me, I hope you'll continue to do so over at Hey Stuff!
A few months ago my husband and I started our own company called Simpleform. It's very very small (just us two at the moment) and one day he imed this to me, joking that this should be our companies motto. It's pretty damn fitting and is our companies first decorative art purchase for the office that we hope to someday have. It was a fine fine choice, this four color screen print is absolutely beautiful in that way that only screen prints can be, great vivid colors, crisp borders, sweet thick paper. Beyond happy with this one.
Get it at Aesthetic Apparatus.

Gorgeous work from one of my absolute favorite artists Sam Weber. I think this is his first print, it's from an illustration that he did called Oryx for Dellas Graphics, and it looks absolutely fantastic.
"I named this after a character from Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and
Crake. Although the figure depicted bears no narrative resemblance
to the aforementioned, there is something about the pose and colour that
evokes themes within the novel that I found fitting. I’ll do this
often, try to conjure the sense of a character I have read or heard
about, even if it does not directly relate to the problem at hand. I
think part of it is about satisfying certain artistic compulsions, and
part of it is about creating something that feels convincing."
