Friday Finds 2.19.10

This week our Friday Finds segment goes international making stops in the UK, Israel, and Vancouver, Canada before returning back to the USA with one of the newest tributes in our Famous Seniors line. Happy Friday!

Maxrock

When we first saw English artist Maxrock's Balloon Ride print we thought it looked like a Hayao Miyazaki x Little Prince collabo; we had to check out more. Upon further inspection we found some really sweet work in Maxrock's portfolio. We look forward to seeing more work from this UK based artist. To see more of Maxrock's work please visit his Etsy shop.

Babayagada

The first piece of work we saw by Israeli artist Babayagada was Sketchbook Fairies; we immediately wanted to see more. What we found did not disappoint! While her work encompasses many different styles, several of the pieces in her portfolio seemed to us to have an anime/fairy tale feel to them. The Hut print which is based on a Russian fairy tale also reminded us of Miyazaki's film Howl's Moving Castle. To find out more about the artist behind Babayagada please visit her awesome site. To see more of Babayagada's great work please pay a visit to her Etsy shop.

What did Shaun White find in Vancouver?

Another Olympic gold medal! Earlier this week Mr. Shaun White showed the world why he is the undisputed king of the halfpipe. We are simply in awe of the air that Shaun gets and are amazed at how effortless he makes all his tricks appear.

Thanks to Robert Gauthier of the Los Angeles Times who caught this great shot of Shaun during his final run.
