Michele Maule from Etsy.com
I've been following Michele Maule's work for quite some time! What I love about it is it's retro subjects with a modern mixed media execution. She typically works with subjects such as beehives, Remington Typewriters, Polaroids and Cameras-- but an occasional bike or plant will appear. I was first struck by her renditions of Remington Typewriters with the keystrokes being visible. Her illustrations are normally light and airy-- but are particularly nice when the paint is transparent enough to reveal words from collaged paper lurking underneath. It's fun, it's playful and best of all they are all affordable originals! Chic factor 9.2 -- value and originality perfect 10!
