The artist / illustrator Cheeming Boey from the U.S. decided it would be a good idea to make his art on polystyrene disposable cups, just with a marker. And he was right because his creations sell for up to $ 1,000 per cup! … Nice work!

Pop and Lolli wall decal

Pop & Lolli make beautiful BIG illustrated wall decals that are totally removal and repositionable. I think they are lovely, and there is such a wide range of themes and characters.

Website is rather cute and quirky too – have a “nest” to add items to rather than a basket. Sweet idea.

Penguin adverts

The Penguin adverts for their Audiobook classics – showing the book characters climbing in the ear canal of the listener. Beautifully illustrated, they combine the monochromatic, detail-oriented illustration style of anatomical drawings with the pastel colors and fantasy of children’s literature.

Sketch Restaurant – Parlour Menu

Found this menu with lovely quaint illustrations throughout for the Parlour restaurant at Sketch. Each one has an oldy worldy feel, illustrating the item by inferring a personality type. Unfortunately they chose not to adopt a similar approach to their website, but I think this is just so cute. Check out the whole thing by clicking here.

Alphabet prints

A bit similar to the alphabet vegetables from last week, but these illustrations are just so pretty. By Woop, the “designers of Harry Potter,” apparently…
