my-happy-place

I am incredibly excited to now be offering Phone cases & skins, along with cases & skins for other devices including iPads and computers. I am thrilled to be working with Nuvango (formerly GelaSkins) to produce high quality, sturdy products with my designs. For my launch, I have uploaded four different designs. Don’t see something you like? Every week I’ll be uploading a new design.

Go here to take a look at all four patterns I’m offering currently (you can also see samples above and below). If you like one of the designs but are worried they don’t make it for your phone, never fear! Nuvango makes skins for practically every phone & device imaginable! If you don’t see your phone or device on the first screen, simply click “see more products” to find yours.

Pattern of the Week!

03/28/14

succulents_lowres

This week’s repeat pattern is made from drawings of one of my favorite things to draw: succulents! If you take my basic line drawing class (which is available if you subscribe to Creativebug), one of the lessons is all about drawing succulents. (BTW: there is no start or end time to this drawing class so you can take it at any time!)

I plan to make a few more patterns from succulent drawings over the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more.

Have a happy Friday and a great weekend.

I’m attempting to create one new pattern a week between now and May, which, amidst my crazy schedule, is proving to be difficult (I failed miserably wasn’t able to make one last week). But his week I managed to finish this pattern, called “Pearls” shown here in two colorways.

Enjoy & happy Tuesday.

New Repeat Pattern!

funkypottery_repeat_yellow_lowres

This may I will travel to Surtex for the fourth time — a surface design show in New York — to show my portfolio at my agent’s booth. To prepare my portfolio with some new imagery I’ve given myself the goal of making at least one new repeat pattern a week between now and the beginning of May.

Here’s the first! It combines my love for typography, geometric shapes and mid-century pottery, and it’s available for license!

I’m super excited to announce the release of my latest bedding for Land of Nod: Welcome to the Jungle, which comes as a sheet set for toddler beds and also for cribs! You may also remember the 1001 Good Nights Bedding I did for Land of Nod last year. Both designs are illustrated with my drawings, which I made into a repeat pattern to adorn the bedding.

THIS is a product launch I have been excited about for a long time. I am so happy to announce the release of a new line of tea towels I designed for Poketo! There are two patterns: the Herringbone and the Pyramids.

tea-towels-lisa_06-460x460

First, the Herringbone:

And the Pyramids:

tea-towels-pyramids_03-460x460

tea-towels-pyramids_01-460x460

These 100% pure linen tea towels are naturally more absorbent and stronger than cotton, and will get softer with use over time. Ever so versatile, you can use it for a multitude of everyday tasks – as a placemat, kitchen décor, gift wrap, or to dry dishes and leafy greens. Because they’re so versatile, you can use them anywhere from your kitchen to your workspace and even your bathroom!

My Wallpaper in Gorgeous Spaces

{The kitchen of Daniel Kanter of Manhattan Nest}

You may recall that last fall wallpaper company Hygge and West launched my new line of wallpaper. It includes the Triangle pattern (above), Ferns and Bohemian. Designing wallpaper might be one of the most exciting jobs I’ve ever had. Just last week Hygge and West launched removable wallpaper tiles, which are easy to remove without leaving any residue – ideal for temporary installations. They are also perfect for renters and high traffic areas and projects that would be difficult with traditional wallpaper. Daniel of Manhattan Nest, who rents an apartment in New York, recently used the yellow and black Triangle tiles to wallpaper his kitchen, and wrote about the experience here on his blog, including “in process” photos!

{More from Daniel’s kitchen on Manhattan Nest}

The removable tiles come in the black and yellow pattern, grey and pink, and black and white. Thank you Daniel!! It looks amazing.

In other news, Makeshift Society, my favorite co-working space in San Francisco, used rolls of my charcoal and gold Triangle pattern on one of their walls (pictured below). I can’t wait to head over there and take a look at it in person!

If you love either the removable tiles OR the rolls of my wallpaper, you can purchase all of it here. Rumor has it Daniel is hosting a giveaway for the removable tiles on his blog very soon! Not sure about color or scale? Ask Hygge and West to send you samples (just use the drop down menu).

Have a great Tuesday, friends.

My Cloud9 Fabric Collection :: Coming Spring 2013!

12/13/12

I’m so incredibly happy to announce the release of my fabric collection for Cloud9! The collection is called The Land that Never Was, and it’s based on my a fantastical world I created in gouache paint and Micron pens. Images of the collection were released today (you can see snippets of the entire collection above). It’s going into production now, and it will be available for purchase in the Spring of 2013.

I collaborated with the amazing &, exceptionally talented Michelle Engel Bencsko, co-founder and lead designer at Cloud9, on the entire collection. We’ve been working on the designs together for six months. And I am so happy with how each one evolved! And believe me: designing a fabric line is a process — of back and forth, refining and finessing. I have such an appreciation for the craft now. And I’m so glad to now be part of the industry.

Thank you, Cloud9, for giving me this opportunity!

Tomorrow on the blog: a recap of the Professional Illustration class I taught last night. It was really a lot of fun.
