August Art Roundup: Sleepy Badgers, Neverland Maps, & Kawaii Witches!

It's time to look at pretty art! Woot woot!

Here are my favorite finds this month:

Gowen Illustration has some of the most gorgeous animal pieces. Look at these sleepy sweeties:

This Hufflepuff needs that badger.

 Those are stickers, but she also has necklaces:

...including this cool double-sided dino:



...and of course prints!



Galaxy tiger!

Go check out Gowen's Etsy shop, Sushi Studios, to see the rest. You should also follow her on Instagram!


*****

It's been a while since I featured You Found Jacob, and he's got some great new pieces:



These two are the only ones available in Jacob's Etsy shop, but follow him on Instagram for more pretties like these:



Plus he sells most of his stuff at conventions, so look for him at Dragon Con this weekend if you're going!

*****

 Cloverkin Art also specializes in animals, and is famous for her pet portraits wearing armor. Ha!  Her style is warm and pure old-world fantasy:

So sweet!

I especially love this Owl Sticker Pack:


And since I'm a sucker for owls in general, here's one more:
Go see the rest in her Etsy shop!

*****

Alisa Vysochina mostly paints in watercolors, but her colors are super vivid:







 Sadly Vysochina's Etsy shop is on a break right now, so you'll have to bookmark it. BUT! Go follow her on Instagram for...

 CUTE CORGI BUTTS.

And more pretties like this:



***


Looks like I have an unintentional animal theme going this month, because next up is Donavon Brutus and his "Super Fancy Party" print: 
Donavon does the coolest stuff with lines and circles, and this print of Lion is my absolute favorite:

Almost an Art Deco feel, right? SO GOOD.

Go see the rest of Donavon's prints in his Society 6 shop, although I don't see Lion there, so he may only sell that one at conventions. You can also give Donavon a follow over on Instagram!


*****

And finally, if you love all things Kawaii and pastel, then you're gonna flip for Sweet Grotesquery:







Although I really like her darker pieces, too:


Check out the Sweet Grotesquery Red Bubble store for everything from prints to t-shirts, then give her a follow on Instagram for more awesome art; she does some swoon-worthy marker commissions, but somehow only has 200 followers?! Yeah. Let's fix that.

*****

Hope you guys had fun looking at the pretties!

Now, let's give away some art.

As always, comment below for a chance to win your choice of free art from my Pinterest Art Give-Away Board. In addition to one wild card winner, I'll also pick two more of you to win these:

Winners will be announced in my very next post, so be sure to check back! Unclaimed art will go to the fastest commenters on Facebook - so make sure you're following me on Facebook, too!

Happy commenting!
