James Ulmer does quirky, offbeat illustrations, which I feel are in the same vein as Amy Brown’s. These two prints are my favourites from the freelance illustrator who’s living in Philadelphia. His website is still under construction (but you can see some of his illustrations there), but hop on over to his Etsy store to see more!
James has since updated his website. Thanks for heads up, James!

Christoper David Ryan’s sketches remind me of a style that belongs in the 70s — very organic and whimsical.
His new book, As Overheard in the Back of My Mind — Vol. 1 is a 20-page book filled with his sketches and prints and is sold in a limited edition of 100. Julia’s site Book By Its Cover who recently featured his book, and will feature another one of his books soon.
Christopher also sells his prints, with his hand-drawn prints available exclusively at Little Paper Planes.
The Living Room Sessions print (USD20); The Architect print (USD15); and As Overheard in the Back of My Mind — Vol. 1 book (USD10)
Jo of Desire to Inspire has a knack for design, and the blog that she shares with Kim is updated regularly and features interiors, architecture and design. She also has her own Etsy shop where she sells her prints. My favourite has to be the Punked Peacock 2 — the watercolour background and linework is really lovely.
