    Wow, beautiful work by everyone but I’m currently enamoured by Katie Green… so cute!

  5. Hi, I visited all the artists and is a difficult task to choose only one.
    I liked all for different reasons … all are fantastic.
    but since you have to choose only one I’ll choose the “benconservato” .. the originality and genius of his work.
    congratulations to you for the initiative.
    A big hugs,
    yasmin mundaca

    I love the innocence and charm of Katie Green’s work – I’ve been coveting a few of Katie’s prints for months now! πŸ™‚ Her drawings definitely put a smile on my face.

  12. Patricia says:

    What a wonderful idea to bring together these artists around the green approach to life. I have several of Jacqueline Basham’s papercuts, and I have to say I swoon over them every day for their combination of spirituality and connection to nature. Her work goes deep, and it really inspires me.

  13. Maya says:

    Katie Green’s work makes me grin and smile. Dragging you into the world of a child.

    Have come across the
    what i wore’ illustrations earlier. Happy to see more fabulous work from her.

  14. Wehaf says:

    I love katie Green’s stamps! Such gorgeous detail.

  15. Zom G. says:

    I’m pretty keen on Kitty Kilian’s mobile. It grabbed my eye in the first visual pass and then I read her interview & was hooked. Annnnd I just clicked on her blog so I think I’ll let that do the explaining…

  16. vesle serena says:

    hurrah for giveaway! I have been following Katie Green for a while, she is such a nice artist, and she makes kind and delicate illustrations… Love all those veggies with tiny faces πŸ™‚

  17. Kate says:

    Tough choice! I love them all but especially jettas nest, Edison Rex and smooth pebble…I have to go for smooth pebble though, the tree ring and intricacy of the paper cutting blows my mind. Wonderful competition, so exciting !!
    P.s- one of the links didn’t work for me, couldn’t see any work by genine(?)
    thanks for a great zine and comp!

  18. Benthe says:

    I find it hard to choose. I like Benconservato for his cute monsterfigures, Smooth Pebble i like for the beautiful combination of art and text and i love Katie green just because of her style of drawing.

    Benconservato! I love how loose and fun his work is. This whole package would be inspiring, though. Fingers crossed!

  24. Lucia says:

    Loved all of them but my favorite is Genie Espinosa with her playfull and sweet images. The “Satoshi Date 1” is wonderful!

  25. Ali says:

    What a wonderful selection of artists! My favourites are Sam of Jetta’s Nest – totally unique designs and beautiful wearable art creations. I also like Emma’s (Benconservato) work – her Monsters Behaving Badly colouring book has been in my favourites list for a long time.

  26. Julie says:

    Oooh… they are all so good, and most are my favorites… but, Katie Green is my No. 1 favorite, closely followed by Emma from Benconservato!

  34. giovanna x.s.s. says:

    hey, there! i love benconservato’s moleskines the most.

  38. Alaina says:

    I don’t know if its fair to choose! But if I had to Katie Green’s style is really nice.

  39. I loved so many of them, but the paper cut-outs of Smooth Pebble just had me by the heart. I am SO in love with “tree ring”. If I ever stop being poor, I will definitely buy it.

  40. Robyn says:

    I love the tree ring print by smoothpebble… their work is definitely my favorite!

  41. Stephanie says:

    I love Katie green AND Smooth Pebble – & choosing two was very hard I think choosing one would be impossible!

  42. Anne B. says:

    Smooth Pebble is my favorite. The “Paper anniversary” item is soo cute.

  43. I love Katie Green’s work!
    And I love “the green pikapackage”, too πŸ™‚ great idea!

  44. Holly says:

    I’ve been a fan of Katie Green for a while and I just LOVE her work, but everyone in this group is so talented! I think I just found a new favourite though, Genie Espinosa! I love the colour and the textures are so fun to look at! But everyone is SO talented! Great group of artists! So glad to find them all!

  45. Susi says:

    I fell in love with Bencorservato’s work, I just adore his monsters and the way he paints them! _ Great find!

  46. allison says:

    I love Mary Kate McDevitt’s work, I think it would just look lovely on any wall πŸ™‚

  47. Irit says:

    I love Benconservato’s monsters. Not scary at all. πŸ˜‰

  48. Santhy says:

    Their works are all so lovely & cute & it’s hard to choose just one of them. All of them are unique in their ways but the one that really caught my eye is Smooth Pebble’s paper cut out! So cute! finger crossed!

  49. Tana Cox says:

    I had a hard time choseing a fav. artist. I narrowed it down to three. Edison Rex, I love this style of art, as it’s so different from my own. Genie Espinosa’s illustations are cute, fun and kid-tastic (yep I like making up words too). Katie Green’s art makes me smile, and fascinate me. I could see reading books with her illustations in them to my children.

  50. Mary Beth says:

    I am going to have to go with Nekocherry as my favorite because I’m a sucker for a beautifully illustrated, hilarious cat drawing!! But everyone in this list is amazingly talented.

  51. Marisa says:

    I love the quirkiness of Katie Green’s line drawings because they are very cleanly drawn but a little bit zany. Also, they mostly feature food. So of course I love them.

  52. Louise says:

    My favorite artist is Jetta’s Nest. I absolutely love her blog! http://www.jettasnest.com/

    Thank you!

  53. mareike says:

    wow, what a great giveaway and all the artists do pretty amazing stuff! i like benconservato most, the monsters remind me of the books of my childhood. i also really like nekocherry, the little mermaid is wonderful!

  54. green ink says:

    Katie Green is my favourite of your featured artists – I’ve met her in real life and she’s as gorgeous and friendly in person as her illustrations are. Reading her zine “The Green Bean” gives me the most warm, fuzzy feeling, you can’t help but smile πŸ™‚

  55. Alicia B. says:

    Cute package, great art work!

  56. Abigail says:

    Mary Kate McDevitt’s stuff is definitely my favorite- check out all that hand lettering! It’s gorgeous.

  57. Anita Z says:

    ooooo la la! i must admit that i am drawn to both benconservato (for his monsters that are a little scary but have a whimsy too!) and mary kate mcdevitt’s (for her hand drawn lettering and messages) works. thank you pikaland for exposing your readers to this awesome work! XX

  58. jill scripps says:

    MaryKateMcDevitt is my fav! I LOVE her screenprinted posters and LOVE her chalkboards!

    crossing my fingers on the drawing!

  59. Gaby says:

    I absolutely adore Katie Green’s work; my favourite is the Autumn Giclee Print! I met her recently when her table caught my eye at Comica Comiket and I couldn’t resist buying a few of her zines. I read them that night, tucked under a blanket on the sofa with a lovely cup of tea. Life has been confusing recently, to say the least, but reading Katie’s zines made me feel warm and positively inspired…like I was talking to an old friend. Thank you Katie! xx

  60. jill says:

    I’m really diggining benconservato’s work… i love the variety of textures he uses! πŸ™‚

  61. Lay Hoon says:

    Wow !! The package looks fabulous !!

  62. sara says:

    So much uberness! Loving on Katie Green’s work this morning πŸ™‚ There is something very endearing and whimsical about every line.

    Thanks for the chance ^^

  63. Rodica says:

    There is so much talent among these artists, but I’m partial to Katie Green.

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway!

  64. I LOVE Katie Green and Jettas Nest!

  65. Stitchybritt says:

    I just saw your tweet so I assume it’s still ok to enter? (sorry I missed it earlier!).

    Katie Green is my fave – she seems like such a cute ‘regular’ girl, I love the way she crafts in all different styles (draws, paints, makes toys!) and loves a good cuppa (like me).
