Art Nouveau is one of my favorite art movements, and Alphonse Mucha is like the epitome of the style. I love almost all of his pieces, but the two here are ones I find particularly inspiring because of their lush color and altogether elegance. His pieces are like beautiful waves of design and loveliness, your eye just flows through the piece, finding hidden details that make them even more enjoyable.

Don.Kenn.is.awesome. And all this series of his work (which is quite large) is all on post it notes! dang! His illustrations remind me a lot of Edward Gorey, whom I am also a giant fan of. Ive always enjoyed charcters that had a creepy, mysterious quility to them, which Kenn encapsulate completely.I am in love with all of his characters, although my particular favorite is probably his ghoulish creatures with the antlers.

This fellow (at least I think hes a fellow...) uses a lovely muted palette for almost all of his designs that I really enjoy. Although I really love the concept and design of the man made of birds, my favorite is definetly the bottom image. I love the idea, and I think he executed it wonderfully. Also it reminds me of the song, Sea of Love by Cat Power which is just great.
