It dawned on us recently that while we’ve been on Instagram for some time now, we’ve done very little to promote our feed. It’s a great place to get a quick fix for inspiration, get a sneak-peek into our various projects, and see who we love to follow. Find us via the Instagram app under AarynWest, or on the web here.

Ukrainian Embroidery

Ukrainian Embroidery via Aaryn West

As a lover of all things bohemian and folksy, I pretty much died when I came across this collection of Ancient Ukrainian Embroidery over on the blog 50 Watts. I followed the link back to the original Picasa album, which is absolutely worth a few minutes of your time. I really don’t know which I prefer more – the bright, angular geos, or the dustier organic floral motifs? It’s so hard… I love them all!

Michael Dotson:Inspiration Found

Paintings by Michael Dotson

A shout out to Booooooom for featuring an artist that really floats my boat, Michael Dotson. His paintings abound with bright, contrasting colors, geo shapes, print mixing, texture for days – and all presented in a semi-surreal, retro manner. That’s pretty much a recipe for awesome, right? Check out his website to see more of his work!
