Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Jay Wescott’s fascination with typography and cartooning started at a young age. Ever since, he has been working to incorporate the two through drawings, illustrations, murals, and design.
He has dedicated the past ten years of his life to street art, and
continues to push the envelope and set the standard for perfection. His work can be seen in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Germany,
France, and Holland.
This particular group of work was inspired by the
floral life I see in Seattle. My goal was to capture the beauty we get
to see for only a short period of time each year.

Handbag designer Aiko Tanaka was born and raised in Japan. After being a graphic designer for eight years she decided to convert her ideas and designs into a product and came up with her company "thezakka" in 2009.
Aiko finds fabrics from around the world - using whatever she falls in love with. With her design sensibilities, she tries to create something new by playing with colors and patterns the fabric has. Her unique combination of frame and fabric makes her bags unusual and fresh.
She will be expanding her Venue collection this month to include a "wristlet" as a new style in addition to clutches, sunglass cases, coin purses and jewelry travel cases.

Through his paintings Lenard would like to create a space where the viewer is drawn into a multi-layered tableau of rhapsodic interplay of color and gesture.
He has created labyrinths where you can follow twists and turns of ambiguous forms through repetition, articulation and color association.

Self taught and feeling little restraint, I paint what I see, feel and live.
My hope is that my work is not only seen by you but also felt. If my work evokes an emotion, memory or a simple smile, I've accomplished what I started to do.
