Squid & Dogs!

Yesterday I went on a spending spree over at Etsy. I bought a handful of squid themed goodies and a couple of dog art prints. Check out these terrific Etsy Artists.

"Elspeth and Yorrick ACEO Limited Edition"
by Scarlett

I am not usually a fan of the big eyed kids look, but this clever illustration was so absurdly wonderful, I just had to have it. This gal has talent to spare, check out her shop.

"Scrabble Tile Pendant" Lime Octopus

by HomeStudio - Creativity by Mark & Stefani, a collective

I am a big time scrabble player so when I saw these cute little pendants created on scrabble letters I just had to have one ( or two). Check out Home Studio, they even have a Chihuahua pendant.

"Vintage Natural History ala Davy Jones Locker"
by Blue Bird Lane
I have no idea what I am going to do with these tags with vintage squid art, but again .... I had to have them.

"Boston terrier on a tricycle"
By Brian Rubenacker
You have to check out Brian's artwork. In addition to lovely dogs he has some really wonderful robots. I think what I love most about his style is his sophisticated sense of color. Look at the print above and wrap your mind and eyeballs around that combo of mint and dirty gold with a punch of red ..... ZOWIE! Oh and yea, then there is the humor of a dog riding a tricycle ... makes me smile. This is going in my office.

"Scottish Terrier Print"
by John Golden

And last but never least is a Scottie print .....yay. I had favorited this guy months ago, and finally had to put it in my shopping cart. John is another very cool illustrator that does dogs and, yes robots.
