Some of my favorite paper cut-outs by famed Shanghai-based papercutting master Li Shoubai. I might just drop by his gallery/store this afternoon to check them out in person.
I’m back in Shanghai as such I have finally framed and put up the recently-purchased prints in a lovely corner. I stumbled upon the bigger print, Sue by Madrid-based illustrator and designer Blanca Gómez at rockstar while I got the smaller gocco print by Scottish illustrator Jen Collins on Etsy.
Despite being not able to afford very much at the moment, I like to support art when I can. Thank you Jen for the heartfelt package with handwritten note and the cutest little badge (now pinned on my very worned-out Le Pliage tote along with wake me up at <insert destination> and The Little Dröm Store’s Mr. Squirrel badges) ! Your print is especially apt now that I’m starting a (happy) home of my own.
We bought our first art print the other day. I’d been eyeing Blanca Gómez‘s lovely illustrations for some time but I’ve never come across this particular one before. Need to go look for a suitable frame next !
If I am loaded, I would of course splurge on all four but alas I am not, so it’s decision making time. Too tough.
Option 1: $40, 18×24 in.
Option 2: $15, 13×23 in.
Option 3 (hi. i am in love with you. ok.): $40, 26×40 in.
Option 4 (hi. i am not interested in what you are saying. ok.): $40, 26×40 in.
While reading up on the recent buzz on Singapore’s bilingualism policy, I chanced upon these Speak Mandarin Campaign posters from the 1980s. Not sure where I can lay my hands on them but would love to frame the first two up on my wall one day.
