I love old school botanical illustrations, but have always stopped short of hanging them on my walls. Maybe I’ve just never found ones that are interesting or bizarre enough for my taste. But when I saw Wolfie and the Sneak’s new posters, Fungi and Pods, below, I was smitten.
Soon to be gracing my walls: Fungi! Quirky and colourful. I love it.
And its sister, Pods. I think this one has inspired me to commit to an office colour scheme: red and robin’s egg blue. Delish.
Wolfie and the Sneak (Renee and Charlie – “two crazy kids in love, who also love to make things”) make some truly sweet, sweet things. Like Lotus Seed Pods, above. And next on my personal wishlist, their Freshly Sliced Art – Flora Edition, which is kind of like a really funky, beautiful colouring book. It contains 15 ready-to-color, limited edition botanically-minded prints. Renee does her drawing magic and you come up with the color scheme. The pages are perforated so you can tear them out and frame when finished. How fun!
So go check out their Etsy shop, and Renee’s garden/DIY/art/fun stuff blog. Go on now. Shoo.

Those are wonderful posters and will look great on your walls. I have a couple of bird and wildflower posters in my guest bedroom. I also print out my own photos and mount and frame them.

Check out the fungi photo exhibit a coworker of mine did awhile back: http://ppathw3.cals.cornell.edu/PhotoLab/FungiOChina/FungiOfChina-main.htm
Crafty – yeah, I always think I should print and frame my garden photos, but never get around to it. Hell, I haven’t even printed my wedding photos yet.
Ellis – wow. Those are bizarre! I can’t imagine those would have been a fashionable subject of illustration in the Victorian era.

Those are not my style at all, but they are definitely gorgeous! And, educational to boot!
Thanks so much for the mention. Have you gotten them yet?
So gorgeous! I love the playfulness of these….
