Fabulous Circus Illustrations!

Here are Jeff Shumway's illustrations hung.... fab-O!

Homemade Wallpaper

My current favorite project...

I decided to make my own wallpaper out of inspiring botanical prints, vintage papers and bright patterns. I like the balance of the geometric circles and squares with the organic patterns within. Not to mention that cute kid...

Some Cool Circus Art

From Kansas City no less! Tammy Smith of Homemade Circus makes these awesome art pieces. Love them!


So here was a room in last night's episode of Extreme Home Makeover... A SPINNING TOY STORAGE UNIT FERRIS WHEEL!!! No, NO, this is not where I got my idea! I can't believe the timing on this! I guess inspiration grabs all different people at the same time. Geez... Well played Ty Pennington... Well played...

Some more of my work...

My (somewhat failed) attempt at sketching...

You'll have to use your imagination on this one seeing as my sketching skills are pretty amateur, but here is a glimpse of the bed...

Here are some before photos of the room I will be doing, it's a second floor bedroom.... I think it'll be quite a transformation.  Sketches and more research to follow soon...

Which came first the catalog or the concept....

Just got the new Anthropologie catalog in the mail today...

And... Wow... does it look a lot like a vintage circus theme!!!  Jeez.  Let it be known that my concept came out before this issue of Anthro.  (and Anthropologie, I still love you, but what timing, seriously... hahahaha)  IRONY!  I guess great minds think alike.
