Anna Bond // Rifle Design

I have this big plan of gocco-ing all my wedding invites (the party is loosely scheduled to be next year!) And I know one thing is for sure – it will be illustrated and hand-lettered by yours truly! So when I saw these beautiful illustrated wedding stationery by Anna Bond of Rifle Design I was saying YES YES YES!

If you’re all up for a fun and lively party, so why should an invite to one of the happiest event of your life be any different? ;)

YouFail Sale

Kiersten of is having a sale on her original old and new paintings. She’s having the sale because she has been struggling with a blood circulation problem that affects her right hand. So far doctors have not been able to diagnose the problem, so in the meantime, she’s in the process of having endless blood work and neurological tests done. These tests are by no means cheap, thus the huge SALE on her work, to help ease the pain of piling medical bills.

See here for the complete gallery of her works available for sale!

Good to Know #2 Launch!

Hello there and I hope you’re having a great start to the week!

I know I haven’t been writing much, but just to report, everything is good here in Pikaland! We just launched the second issue of Good to Know where 28 artists sent in their thoughts on a topic that has been on the minds of many lately:

When does one know that a personal style has developed? Is it important to know what exactly that style is?

You can read what the participants had to say here: and if you’d like to purchase the zine, it’s available directly at our site: —- we’ve also made it available for download too!

And to celebrate, we’re holding a giveaway where 3 random winners will win a copy of the zine when they leave a comment at the blog: We’d love it if you could come along!
