See Jen work. Some of my favorite shots are of creatives in their workspaces (I even have a Pinboard titled Creatives at Work), so when Jen posted this on her blog, I knew I'd be stealing it to share with you all. There's something about a giant warehouse where artists go to play that gets me excited - and not in a creepy, glow necklace, House music kind of way.
Jen turns her illustrations - many of which are nature-inspired - into detailed linoleum-cut prints. The labor-intensive process means a single print takes 2-3 days to create. Printed on 1BFK Rives paper from France, the finished result is a highly contrasted silhouette that accentuates the details of the figures.
You may even recall seeing Jen's work in the home of Victoria Smith, author of SFGirlByBay blog that was featured in the premiere issue of Rue. There's no denying Victoria is a woman of great taste, and a collection of Jen's work hangs proudly in her dining room against a black backdrop.
And a few months ago, this brilliant artist asked me to redesign her blog, Art and Lair. With an abundance of white space and a splash of speckled gold ink, it's now a perfect canvas on which to display the work of other talented artists and designers.
