Right before Valentine’s Day this year I had the pleasure of collaborating with an awesome local artist, Josh Searl, on a couple of new greeting card designs! If you’ve visited our Etsy store since then, you’ve already seen these, but I figured they needed a little shout out on our blog too. Josh is a design student at the University of Oregon and has been drawing adorable critters and making other awesome artwork from a very young age. I’m good friends with his aunt and uncle, and was super-excited when Josh agreed to collaborate with me on these cards. We started with two designs, the little blue monster you see above and below, and the little green one with the pink balloon that you’ll see further down in this post.
Aren’t they just adorable?!? Both designs are printed as 4bar size cards on 100% cotton Crane Lettra Pearl White paper and come with coordinating blue or chartreuse envelopes, depending on the design. Josh and I are going to be working on additional designs in this series, so if you love his monsters as much as I do, check back! There’s going to be more! The two designs you see above are currently available online in our Etsy Store and at Gramberry. You can also find them locally in Eugene at Modern on 5th and Pearl.
If you’d like to check out more artwork by Josh Searl, you can at his Deviant Art site. Check it out!
Thanks so much for working with me, Josh! You’re awesome!
