15 Awesome Artists To Cover Your Walls

1. Chad Wys: I have a few of Chad’s pieces and I love how he takes classical sculptures and oil paintings and gives them a modern spin with bold splashes of color and geometric shapes.

2. RK Design: This artist focuses on a mostly black and white palette with organic shapes. A personal favorite of mine is the cross print.

3. Max Wanger: The reigning king of negative space, Max excels at highlighting the beauty of everyday moments, from the beach to the city.

4. Replace Face: I am completely obsessed with this artist — anyone that creates old-world style portraits of celebrities ranging from Michael Jackson to Mickey Rourke is a god in my book.

5. Andy Warhol: When I want some Warhol, I know that I can depend on Art.com to deliver his best known pieces at a really affordable price.

6. Sealoe: If fashion editorial-inspired prints are more your jam, this site is loaded with tons of options from black and white photos to fantastic typography.

7. House Industries: One of the best type foundries around also creates killer hand-screened prints. I actually have two of their pieces in my bedroom and LOVE them.

8. Ciara Phelan: Isn’t her illustration style great? Ciara’s Bird Head series is a personal favorite of mine.

9. Slim Aarons: A well known photographer of American jet-setters from the 1950s through the 1980s, Slim made a living out of capturing the lifestyles of the rich and famous.

10. Gray Malin: While he’s best known for his captivating beach scenes, I’m enamored with Gray’s portrait of black and white llamas covered in balloons.

11. Georgina Paraschiv: Bright paintings of fruit, abstract patterns and landscapes fill Georgina’s work. She has a seemingly bottomless archive of awesome prints.

12. Honey Lake Studio: The simplicity of photos Honey Lake creates really shines — this palm print captures the most beautiful light.

13. Malika Favre: A true master of the human form, she’s able to create intriguing art out of the most simple shapes.

14. Sharon Montrose: If you want to display a portrait of your favorite animal, Sharon’s print shop has you covered. She’s managed to photograph even the most obscure creatures!

15. Super Rural: You’ve probably spotted their famous For Like Ever print in the houses of the who’s who over the last decade. I’m excited to finally have a yellow version of my own on the way.


It’s so exciting picking out new art — next week, I’ll show you what’s arrived and how I’m displaying it in my new space!

It’s Time to Pick Up The Scisssors. I’m Missing Making Collages.

Nubby Twiglet | My Cross To Bear Series by Shauna Haider

As I was digging through my archives over the weekend, I came across my art series from 2011, My Cross To Bear. And as I scrolled through, it reminded me of how much I missed creating collages.

I started making collages years before I really understood what graphic design was or owned a computer. In the late 90s, I began carefully piecing magazine snippets together, forming rough layouts. It became a huge passion of mine and lately, I’ve felt like I’ve lost touch with it.

Design is my job, but it’s tricky because it’s also my passion and my hobby. Doing design is my everything which makes it really hard to step away. But in a way, I’ve realized that don’t need to step away from something I love as much as just switch things up. Occasionally, I need to change the mediums and take the time to get back to my roots.

I’m ready to start making collages again. Just for fun.

The Week in Pictures: 1.8.10

Welcome to Wolfgang. Our house finally has a name: Wolfgang Manor. Honestly, my brother and I usually aren’t posed on the couch like this when people stop by to visit. We just did a shoot for a Swatch / POP Magazine collaboration and took a few extra photos with one of the setups.

Passports. My brother decided that he wanted to go to the Olympics (long story) so we showed up at the post office Tuesday morning for passports. My photos look like mug shots. His make him look like a 70s era Journey roadie.

Mall Food. We then stopped at the mall food court because he was hungry. He is always hungry. Always. Then we bought matching gray jeans at Forever 21 (as seen on our motorcycle shot below). Finally, we forgot which parking garage we were at. Four hours of my life I’ll never get back….but it was worth it.

Fool’s Gold. I have the best aunts ever. For Christmas, one gave me a huge gift basket full of candy and miscellaneous treats. The other delivered cashmere socks and gold coins. Wait….are those chocolate inside?!! Short-changed again, Auntie Nubs!

Space Room. Earlier in the week, I joined a pack of snowboarders at the Space Room for good conversations, cheese fries and drinks (be careful, they are strong). Don’t you love the ambience? They decorate it for every holiday.

Jam Time. Afterwards, I kept them company in the basement while they had a jam session. We then watched a documentary on Aliester Crowley. Black magic is always a great way to end the night!

Like Brother, Like Sister. My brother and I went jeans shopping at Forever 21 and came out with the same skinny, shredded gray jeans. We thought it was so funny that we hopped on the back of his motorcycle for photos and threw on our white leather jackets to complete the look.

Paperdolls. I just completed a piece for the upcoming M.I.S.S. Paperdolls show at FIFTY24 Gallery in L.A. The ‘dress’ is affixed with gold nails and lifts to reveal the body underneath.

Until Next Week,

My friend Jay at Nemo HQ made these two awesome Nubby spreads and I thought I’d share. I love seeing how other designers interpret my work. Thanks to Jay’s mad design skills and hard partying ways, there is never a dull moment at the office.
