here's a little julie west eye candy i found on flickr. i've been completely unable to sleep so i've been tooling around on the internet for a few hours now. i can't believe i just finally signed up for a flickr account now, eek!
anyway, julie west has been one of my favorite artists for a while. she has such an awesome range of paintings, screenprints, gocco prints, ad work, letterpress, magazine, toys, skate decks and probably anything else you could name. i just love the tones, details and line work in all her stuff.
what i'm really psyched about are the artist series bags she just did for jansport. i think they are supposed to be out in april, which gives me plenty of time to decide which i need more, the messenger bag or the rolling one. i'm always cursing my suitcase when i go on short trips, but i would love to have a solid messenger with a long strap. she did another line in greens for them as well, that you can see in her flickr photo stream. both are awesome.
and at some point, when i miraculously win the lottery or something, i would love, love, love to be able to afford to commision one of her paintings like "a girl with 2 birds". i mean come on, it's on wood and has shaped edges, so gorgeous.
alright. i'm off to try to sleep again. if it doesn't happen in the next hour or two i'm going to have to give up. : (
