Love this print by Portland, Oregon based duo Jolby (Josh Kenyon & Colby Nichols).  I’m feeling a pull towards the sea today…

Unfortunately the first print is sold out from their etsy shop, but they have plenty of other beauties to oogle at.  (like the above ‘Traditions’)

Also check out grain edit‘s post on their handiwork here.

And if you haven’t had enough of the sea, have a peak at my all time favorite sea illustration here.

Deer Owl,

I just wanted to write and tell you how much I love you.  The way your sketched black ink plays with your soft modern lines of color…it takes my breath away.

Your #1 fan,

You know those ‘Calgon take me away’ moments?  Sigh.  If it wasn’t the worst season for air travel and if it was somehow the 1950’s, seeing these posters up would have me marching straight to the airport.  Egypt.  Definitely Egypt.
