Prints by Pomalia

I'm a bit partial to Scandinavian design so I was happy to discover the Swedish company, Pomalia. The designer, Pauline, has illustrated a bevy of international cities including a handful of select southern locales...

Pauline is inspired by Scandinavian minimalism and modern design and her prints have a bold, playful vibe. I personally want the Copenhagen one, if only to remind and encourage me to visit there soon. Believe it be...  



Yoni Alter

If you have a space in your home or office that could use a bit of color, may I suggest these art prints by Yoni Alter. He creates a myriad of bold city illustrations, both national and international, but I'm privy to the South...

Yoni is a son of an architect and grandson of a structural engineer, so shapes and buildings are in his blood. He picks a handful of iconic buildings to best visually represent each city he illustrates. All are accurate to scale and a thoughtful combination of bright, poppy colors. 

Peruse Yoni's Etsy shop if you get a chance. He has some really great designs for international cities as well as a few showcasing his play with shape and color, like this one, called Cityscape.

Loose Petal Prints

I love the vintage feel of these city prints, created by artist, Karen Young. In her Etsy shop, Loose Petals, you'll find dozens of Southern cities illustrated to reflect their various moods and vibrations.   

Karen cares about good paper as all her illustrations are printed on heavy cream textured stock that is 100% recycled with post consumer waste. As stated on her site, "Tiny flecks and grains are embedded in this retro stock once used by Hallmark greeting cards in the 50's." 

These prints bring warmth and individuality to a space, plus they have the added benefit of being a good conversation piece. See all of Karen's work here. 



City Prints

My map obsession continues. This time I'm liking these city and college campus prints by Tony and Katie Rodono of Atlanta. Made with vibrant colors, they cater to the favorite places in our memories...

I particularly like their college campus prints as I think it's such a great way for students to decorate their dorm room or apartment. It adds a fun, unique style and certainly carries personal meeting. Above are Auburn University and Appalachian State University- (that's for you Chelsea) 

These prints are 12" x 12" but can be customized to an even larger size- which I really like. They are printed on heavy paper stock, available in your preferred colors, framed or unframed. If you're from South Carolina, you know this purple and orange campus print is Clemson University.

Tony and Katie offer a bevy of city prints as well. All are illustrated in bold colors, inspired by their city flags. Above is Charleston and New Orleans.

These are wonderful art pieces and like every map, a great conversation starter. As Tony shares, "The places we've been are an important part of any individual. The places we've been have stories- stories that we want to share." Find your city or college map here.

I Love My City

I have a strange love of city prints. Perhaps that's why this is not my first blog post about the subject, and certainly not my last. Rebecca Peragrine has created a wonderful My Roots Collection, which allows adults and kids to celebrate where they come from or where they grew up. She includes heart stickers that you can place anywhere on the print. There are large national and international versions as well...

Rebecca offers prints for all 50 states in various color combinations. She creates each one with New Leaf recycled card stock and soy ink, packaging all her art with biodegradable materials. 

Another artist that caught my eye this week is Amy Nelson, who offers 71 versions of her city and state art. She adds heart icons for the cities featured. 

Amy will customize size and color, which can work well when figuring out how to decorate a new wall or room. Simplicity at its best...
