Dreamy, Artful Couple

Don't you love when the planets align and a dreamy, artful couple get together and make dreamy artful work while being a couple?

I do.

I had the pleasure of being in grad school with Jessica Robles for a year. I know I have mentioned her before. She makes beautiful work. She has a really nice illustrationy style that I would give my left hand for (I'm right-handed so that's not totally in vain.). Jessica makes lots of beautiful work that you can see here but this collection is part of her "Shoes" series. They are all lithographs on 22" x 30" paper. That means Big!

These shoes belong to a certain Donald Dixon.
Donald's comic style work is very witty and clever. Every time I see a new piece of his I always laugh. Lately he's been making a lot of work by pasting new art onto comic books. I like his use of comics and his personal commentary. See more of his work here and here.

Jessica and Donald are part of my Dreamy, Artful Couple Series. I just now decided to officially start a series. Do you know any dreamy, artful couples? Are you part of a dreamy, artful couple? Let me know!

Love love love! :)

I'm gonna recommend Allyson Mellberg Taylor and Jeremy Taylor:
They do all sorts of cool things like make their own ink out of things from their garden. I have an art crush on them as well! :)
