8 Rad Artists that Bring Outside Inside
With Small Business Saturday just around the corner, take the time to support some awesome artists that bring the outdoors to you. I rounded up a few of my favorites in alphabetical order. Hope you’re just obsessed as I am.
Outdoors, science and nature prints galore, the duo behind Brainstorm is sure to have something that will look good on your wall. If maps aren’t your thing, try their whimsical campfire or pine tree prints. If you close your eyes, you might almost smell smoke and the woods.
Drawn to High Places
A mountaineer and a climber, Drawn to High Places‘ Nikki Frumkin hauls out her watercolors around the Pacific Northwest to bring delightful mountain scenes to you.
Who says kids get to have all the fun? Lucy Darling’s designs are geared towards the younger, smaller folks, but they’d be equally at home as inspiration for those days where you just gotta stay inside.
Jeremy Collins is a badass climber, artist, dad and master storyteller. Meridian Line is another extension of his storytelling, bringing familiar places we know and love to life through his eyes.
Do you love maps but hate their cluttered aesthetic? Muir Way takes those maps you’ve been hoarding, cleaned em up and made them prettier. Everything is printed and framed in San Diego, CA and a portion of sales go to the Sierra Club.
Quail Lane Press
I have a soft spot for letterpress anything and Quail Lane Press is no exception. Their maps and clean and simple aesthetics will have you daydreaming about your next adventure instead of doing whatever you’re supposed to be doing.
Sarah Virginia Uhl
Illustrator Sarah Uhl provides a whimsical take on familiar landscapes and bits and pieces of nature in her prints. And let’s be honest, this America climbing map is the coolest.
Three Bad Seeds
When the mountains are calling, but you really can’t go, bring the mountains to you. Three Bad Seeds crafts each item lovingly by hand in the PNW per order. You’ll see the upper left inspiring many of her designs, from pillows of Puget Sound to Mt. Rainier.
