Let’s travel to the magical world of Crowded Teeth! 

Crowded Teeth is a whimsical universe where sweet good times, cuteness overload and a dose of delicious weirdness are all awaiting us. This 10 year old brand by illustrator Michelle Romo is filled with vivid characters trying to give you hugs and share their fun adventures with you.

As a self-taught illustrator, Michelle has created a wonderful body of work over the years, with her love of Mid-century, Japanese pop culture and all things cute as fuel (along with cookies and naps she says).  She has launched a range of fab products with Land of Nod, collaborated with The Flaming Lips, Sanrio and Disney and continues experimenting with different media, creating sculptures, exhibiting installations, spreading happy feelings from her studio in LA to the world.

We’re super lucky to have something very special from her soon here on Mr P & I can’t wait to share it with you. While the drums roll, today we’d love to show you some of her works. These are only a fraction of the seemingly endless imaginative worlds & cuteness on her site, so check out tons more over there.

One of our favorites is a series of illustrations called Super Mini Universe. It’s an ambitious project where she dreams up an entire world, from realms in outer space to the underground, densely populated with her cute creatures going about things (maybe something mischievous? it certainly looks like lots of parties are involved). Starting with a kind of overview map of this universe, it carries on with a series of rich illustrations with zoomed in scenes of different areas where you can meet everyone right up-close.  The project is now becoming an on-going extravagant travelling art show with sculptures, plush characters, prints and more!

We definitely want to go to there! And make friends with all of them!

Well, we could go on, but I don’t know if we can take too much cuteness all at once here today, there’s 10 years worth of work to browse after all.  We know we’ve left you wanting for more, so take a visit to Crowded Teeth in your own time! ; )

As mentioned, there will be something very exciting for you from Michelle coming up. So we’ll be meeting these toothsome creatures again very soon!

The word calligraphy is derived from two Greek words, kallos (beauty) and graphi (writing). Andrew Fox had his own take at beautiful strokes on paper and made a bunch of calligraphy animals! Absolutely love the outcome, so simple yet so bold! (Via Andrew Fox)

We’d like you to meet some new friends of ours. Kind, sociable and very handsome, we think you will get along with them just swell. They go by the name of Kokeshi and have been handcrafted from beechwood by the clever crew at Sketch Inc.

We have long been fascinated by the craft that goes into the production of the traditional Japanese Kokeshi doll, and are equally impressed with the tasteful modern twist incorporated into these rad designs.

Be careful not to get too star struck, but do say hello to Ziggy Stardust, Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Coco Chanel and Anna Wintour. Oh and don’t forget Beau, he loves his geometric hoodie so much he refuses to take it off. He’s just the cutest.

Each Kokeshi character is handmade to order, meticulously hand painted and sealed in a hard wearing Satin varnish for a smooth and tactile finish.

You can meet each member of the gang and adopt one for your own home from the Sketch Inc website.

Kites with Character by Daniel Frost

Kites with Character by Daniel Frost

The weather over here in the UK has been nothing short of amazing; sunny yet windy, and it would have been perfect to fly some kites! I love the works of Daniel Frost and these kites he made back in 2011, are timeless! Using transparent plastic to form a base, on which he then built his characters, gave the appearance as if the characters were flying all by themselves. Absolutely love it! Via Daniel Frost

Ancymo stools

A is for aesthetic, adorable, awesome and Ancymon, the amazing creator of these crafty wooden stools. We love design that is both beautiful and practical, and that is exactly what you get with this clever little design.

Ancymo stools

It is a stool, a small table, a place to store your magazines, a small shelf and a ladder. Oh, and we nearly forgot, it’s also just a stunning piece of furniture for the home.

Ancymo stools

Each ‘A’ is made by hand using birch plywood in either a natural wood colour or something a little more bright.
