giveaway: poketo.

Yay! Giveaway time!

Angie from Poketo [BEST. SHOP. EVER.] was kind enough to send me some goodies this week from the shop, and Holy Gracious--- they're cuties. Because I have this problem where I feel guilty when I have beautiful things, I'm sending them your way!



So, here's what I've got:
(1) Digest Your Life Planner, $15 value. [note: this is FABULOUS in person]
(1) Lisa Congdon Artist Wallet, $20 value. [not yet available online, b/c it's THAT awesome].

OK, so here are the details:
I'll choose ONE lucky winner to receive these goodies, but only one. To enter, I want to hear your favorite artist of all time for a new project I'm working on. That's it! Email your artist to designformankind@gmail.com with 'POKETO' in the subject line. Winners will be chosen at random, but I do accept bribes in the form of Chuck Norris jokes. [Kidding].

AND, be sure to thank Angie from Poketo for her generosity! :)

[edit: GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. Obviously, you can ALWAYS send me your favorite artist(s), but I may or may not send you a goodie... thanks to all entries!].

Ooo tough! I really love Mark Rothko for his ideas of zen buddhism behind his color field paintings, but I'm also very partial to Oli Goldsmith a canadian artist who has done a lot of interesting, science inspired mixed media. And of course I love Edward Gorey.
Hm I guess I'll go with Gorey for the ultimate favorite! hah

Gwen said...

This is really hard! Recently, I've been digging these artists:
Charley Harper
Lisa Congdon
Camilla Engman
But, all time fave? That's too hard. Can I just say pretty much anyone who makes art or follows their creative passion is awesome?

this is really difficult!!

OrenjiSlices said...

That sounds pretty. I'll just have to find ONE artist I love the most. (That might be difficult)

Hey I just started reading your blog - found through Shannon from RiffeRaff. Even though the contest is closed, I wanted to tell you my two favorite artists for your project! One is Jen Bervin and the other is Cy Twombly.

Good luck on your project!

welcome.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
