Traditions Transformed

PresSometimes we feel like art has disappeared into the abyss of the modern World.  Picking_Wildflowers_sAs the World continues to develop, it often feels like the integrity and tradition that forms art is lost.  Until we (thankfully) stumbled across Kelly Louise Judd.  Us gals at Filthy Rebena immediately felt connected to Kelly’s work.  Upon first glance, her artwork appears to be what dreams are made of.  Each piece has this unspoken romance that makes us yearn for a magic potion that will morph our bodies into 2D gouache strokes — so we can crawl into our favorite moments of her paintings.  Due to the lack of 2D elixirs on the market, we spent a long time gazing into her artwork, getting caught up in the little nuances.  If you shake for themes of patterned fashions, plant life and animals – you must check out her artwork to awaken your folk soul.  Why?  To remind yourself we are all part of nature – which in turn brings the simplicity of life into focus.  Check out Kelly’s Blog here or her Etsy shop here.  She was even featured seller on the Etsy blog.  You go girl!

1920’s Illustration

Lanvin

Fashion illustration is an art form. Undeniably. In an increasingly digitized world, it is a visual treat. And we can’t get enough of it. This whimsical design was originally created for Jeanne Lanvin’s beloved daughter but proved to be so popular with her clients that the designer opened her very own children’s department in 1908. Never mind the kids, we’d be more than happy to wear this item ourselves.
