Bits & Pieces: Jolly Edition

1. Cat and dog illustrations, lively pastel hues, and whimsical painterly brushstrokes: Jolly Edition is undoubtedly a new favorite illustrator. While colorful luggage and minty green vespas may bring a smile to my face, greyhounds in coats and dachshunds going for brisk morning walks are by far the most irresistible of Jolly Edition’s playful offerings. 1. … Continue reading
