Our Latest Sweet Paul Ad!
Each quarter we create a new Sweet Paul ad for the magazine's electronic version featuring items from the shop. To create our Fall 2014 ad, we paired up with Minnesota artist, Lisa Rydin Erickson.
We "met" Lisa after seeing her work on Etsy. In August, we met in person when she visited Des Moines (I love when that happens!). Lisa's work is reminiscent of early Marimekko - clean, colorful and lush. A painter for most of her career, Lisa's been creating her most recent works on her iPad - which makes her work even more impressive. We're carrying a selection of her prints online and in-store and plan to add more as we head into Fall.
I'm including all three of our ads here as a sort of side note about how hard it is sometimes to choose what to send along to Sweet Paul. This time, we sent along all three and let their designer choose. Which one's your favorite?
Thanks go out to both Sweet Paul and to Lisa Rydin Erickson for being awesome and for being so wonderful to work with. If you haven't, check out Lisa's work HERE and in our webshop. Pre-order the Fall Sweet Paul print issue in our webshop (link just below) and/or get that same issue online HERE.
