And our lucky winner of over $400 worth of art is… Kate (who loves the mix of love salty and sweet: chocolate covered pretzels, salted caramel, trail mix, etc). Congrats!
There are so many incredible options when it comes to bringing art into your home, so we thought we’d put together a mixed bag of three very different, but equally cool artists’ work. The first comes from D is for Dino, a local guy who also moonlights at our favorite candy store. He makes awesome graphic prints that are crisp, beautiful, and contain “a hint of geekery.” Here are a few of our favorites that you might want to spend your $100 gift card on…
Next up is Against the Woodgrain, who sports quite the mix of media. They’re giving away one of my favorite items: a vintage-inspired arrow light fixture that looks like it was salvaged from some drive-in back in the day (it’s actually handmade just for you).
Last but not least is Jessica Alpern Cuts Paper. We had a hard time picking from her all of her intricately hand-cut works because there’s just something so charming about every single one. So good luck picking which ones to get with your $100 gift card…
- PRIZE: An arrow light fixture from Against the Woodgrain, an $100 gift card to Jessica Alpern Cuts Paper, and an $100 gift card to D is for Dino. That’s over $400 worth of art!
- TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “MIX ME!” and tell us…
- BONUS QUESTION: … what’s your favorite thing to mix? Root beer and ice cream for dessert? Stripes and polka-dots in your wardrobe? Rap and country music on your iPod?
