An Open Sketchbook

Monday, December 09, 2013

When oohing and aahhing my way through the incredible vendors at The Big Crafty a few weeks back, I got to browse the lovely artwork from the dynamic duo of An Open Sketchbook.

I have been following this talented North Carolina couple since they started just a year ago. As a UNC design student, Suzanne started her blog as a way to document sketches and stories of people and places she loved. Her husband joined her on the blog in 2011, and together, they decided to follow their passion and dive into a full-time partnership in design and illustration.  



'Drawing inspiration from our family, childhood and a love of visual storytelling, we strive to create work that celebrates the best and, often times, overlooked parts of life.'  

 I love watching the progressions of their paintings and the retro vibe of their collaborations.
I also love all of their stories and the sketches documenting the adventures of being new parents to twins. And speaking of the twins....

This is hands down the BEST BABY ANNOUNCEMENT EVER!!!! You have got to click here to see the whole illustrated announcement that they shared around their Thanksgiving table a few years ago. 
It. is. awesome. 

And they just released a new book in collaboration with Our State Magazine filled with their illustrations and stories of growing up in the south {it's on my Christmas list!!}
Check out their blog and their store filled with cards, prints, recipe cards, and gift cards.
