February Art Roundup: Princesses, Wombats, Robots, & More!

Time to dive back into some geeky art goodness!


I love the bold, bright colors of Genevieve Kay's princess prints:



And get this: these postcard prints are only $2 each! Lots more beauties to choose from, so head over to her Etsy shop to see the rest.


Ania Tomicka usually paints portraits of fantasy girls, like this:


But she just came out with a trio of watercolor animals that made me melt:

That's a slow loris and a wombat, and I am in love. (There's also a koala.) 

You can buy the originals here at her online store, but I don't see any prints available, so that makes me a sad panda. :(  Follow Ania on Facebook for more.


I've mentioned Sketch Dailies on Twitter before, and here's an especially delightful entry for "Imaginary Dinosaur" day:

Robots, cake, AND dinosaurs? Is this heaven?
I don't think Westin has an online store, but you can check out his blog here.


And one more dino from Guy Wolek:

Made me grin.

And from dinos to robot sculptures:




These are all by Jordan-Alexander Thomas, aka Space Boy Robot. Aren't they great? Follow him on Facebook for more.


Lisa Falzon's work has a soft, surreal beauty that I just love:





Prints start at just $10 over in her Etsy shop, Meluseena.



My friend Jason over at Red Rocket Farm is doing something new: he's using his art panels to tell full stories over on Facebook, releasing a new panel every few hours for a number of days at a time.

The story that's wrapping up this week, To Lumber Home, made John furious, but then by the very next panel (which came out the next day) he was crying happy tears - so I figure anything that sends John on that much of an emotional roller coaster needs a mention. Ha! You can read the whole story in order here on Jason's website.

And while you're there, also check out Jason's shop for paintings, t-shirts, and various goodies:

 The classic "SplatBot," which I've featured before.

 My new favorite. Yay rocket ships!

And this is the shirt John wears the most. Have I mentioned Jason's twisted sense of humor?

K, moving on...

While researching steampunk art for our new room I found this sweet set of carousal prints from The Filigree:

 The set of 2 5X7s is $14, or you can get larger sizes, too.

The shop also has several fabulous hot air balloon prints, which I think I've featured before:

 But this seahorse print is new to me!

Preeeeetty. And only $8!


Which reminds me: I've been meaning to watch Princess Jellyfish again (one of the sweetest shows ever, btw) and I got lost the other day on a rabbit trail of unsourced fan art. (So many pretties posted without credit! Ack!) Anyway, I managed to track this one down:


It's by a French artist named Mirayue, and she has a STUNNING style. Completely in love with this one:

  And this one:

Those colors! Go see the rest of her work over on DeviantArt.


And finally, just in time for Valentine's Day, Jerrod Maruyama debuted some adorable new Disney prints:

 [flail] Donald! SO CUTE.

You can usually only get Jerrod's Disney prints at the parks themselves, but he's doing a give-away for these on his blog right now. Plus, the last time I was at Downtown Disney I picked up this one for the give-away board:


And one more of Jerrod's, because Baymax in Mickey ears:


Love that retro poster design! 

There's so much more cute to see, so go check out Jerrod's site for the rest.

K, guys, that does it for this month! Now, as always, be sure to comment below for your chance to win your choice of free art from my Pinterest Art Give-Away Board! I add to the board every month, too, so take a looksie if you haven't been over there in a while.

I'll announce my randomly selected winner in a few days, and I'll ship anywhere, so internationals are welcome. Happy commenting!

UPDATE:

The give-away has ended, and my 3 winners are:
Swarztikoff
 Hilybee

  2. Love the Minnie/Mickey carousel print--especially for my 2-year-old daughter who's just learned how to say "Minnie Mouse" in her own way. You have a great eye, Jen!

    ReplyDelete
  3. So much awesomeness! I must have the carousel prints to go with my carousel collection. My sister-in-law has that Ollie shirt. Love it!

  5. I love the Baymax one and the Mickeys. Adorable.

    Also, that sloth. Who knew it could be so cute!?

  6. It doesn't look like To Lumber Home is finished. I definitely shouldn't have read it at work though.

    ReplyDelete
  9. The princess prints you listed at the beginning -- thanks for posting those! Will show to my daughters later today.

    ReplyDelete
  10. So many pretties, so little wall space... But my 4 year-old loves dragons, so I'm sure we'd find space for Toothless or the Blue Dragon in her room if they were to arrive in the mail. She's even decided that I will be her pet dragon at our next con: she'll be (steampunk) Elsa, and I'll be Ice-Icer-than-Ice, which is obviously what Elsa's dragon's name is. Roar! Thank you for inspiring me to dress up for cons. It's so much fun!

  11. Love these art roundups as always! :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Great stuff as always. Have you ever played the game-with-cards (not really a card game) Dixit? A lot of your picks this month would fit in really well with the art in that game.

    ReplyDelete

I am even making quilts for it and have a Disney-themed Christmas tree.)

    ReplyDelete

  96. Love Baymax and the seashorse! My favorites!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Every once in a while, I have to stop and remind myself that somebody MADE this stuff. Someone's beautiful mind thought it up, and was able to express it so others can enjoy it. I have just about zero artistic skill, (actually, I can make almost anything out of cake and its edible accompaniments, just can't do anything that would be traditionally called art) :o) but these people amaze me with their skill!! Also, I'm off to check out that rocket ship. I have the perfect spot for it.

    ReplyDelete
  98. AAAAHHH! The Merida print is amazing. Always such a rabbit hole with you. THANKS!
