Coming Soon to a Sofa Near You

I just completed a licensing arrangement with DQtrs, a cool San Francisco-based home decor company.  Later this summer, DQtrs will be producing and selling a collection of limited-edition pillows, featuring illustrations I drew of my own collection of vintage bracelets.  Initially, the collection will be five themes with bracelets on both pillow front and back, in luscious and subtle palettes.  The first series of pillows are close-ups of the links.

After drawing them and observing the bracelets for a while, I began to personify them—as I am wont to do—which led me to seeing several of the illustrations as metaphors for hooking up. In Relationships and Courtship, the bracelets appear to be making attempts to connect, and link up as their clasps approach each other.  Will they ever touch, embrace and lock in? 

See the entire collection and purchase
