Today I bring inspiration by way of Karl James Mountford, a German illustrator who describes his work as, “‘visually edible’, sometimes witty, sometimes odd but always full of gusto.” I was particularly drawn to his book cover illustration, featured below. Enjoy!

What is there to say about Autumn? Only EVERYTHING as it’s my favorite season of the year. I love the colors, the leaves, the clothes, that crispness in the air, and that feeling that things are just beginning (still… even though I haven’t been in school in a long time). I’ve curated some of my favorite autumnal graphics below, from one of my favorite resources, Creative Market. Click on each image to shop and learn more.

Today I’m sharing the work of Matt Dorfman–illustrator, designer, and currently art director at The New York Times. I discovered Matt’s work from a book cover image I came across on Pinterest, (for those of you who follow me on Pinterest, you may have noticed my obsession with book covers…). So, in honor of a well-designed book cover, I’m sharing some of his below! Be sure to check out the his site to view his other work, particularly his editorial work. 👌🏻

I recently discovered Ink and Namu on Etsy- a Los Angeles based studio. I love their typography-heavy, minimalist designs and I’m always a sucker for a coffee mug with a message!
