It's been quite a while since I've posted. Almost a year in fact. Life gets busy, doesn't it?
I'm very excited about a particular artist right now, as I get from time to time, so I'd like to spread the love for her. Verónica de Arriba is the illustrator behind Depeapa. Her designs are both kitsch and cute. Her palettes range from soft pastel to vibrant primary. Although I was drawn to her fine art prints initially, she also has a number of accessories and textiles printed with her illustrations that look very tempting. I first came across Depeapa in my beloved frankie magazine last spring. It must have been issue 47. My partner saw a small thumbnail of Ref. Koala in frankie bits of issue 51 and he just had to have it. We ended up ordering three other prints as well. They did take quite a while to arrive, but definitely worth the wait. The package was hand addressed by Verónica in her hallmark Depeapa lettering. The prints are high quality and each is signed. We had them all framed at Images on Bank and we couldn't be happier!
