Luke Stephenson

Luke Stephenson is a freelance photographer from North East England. His work has been featured in The New York Times, The Guardian, Dazed & Confused, Foam, Art Review and Wallpaper*.

Life in Britain and the British psyche are at the core of Luke’s work. He photographs what to many epitomises the eccentricity of Britain. Often humorous in their outlook, his series range from prize budgerigars to the World Beard and Moustache Championships. Whether animate or inanimate objects, Stephenson creates affectionate portraits of his subjects and documents worlds often hidden from the mainstream.

The Incomplete Dictionary of Show Birds is one of my favorites of Stephenson’s series. I love how the colored backgrounds complement the unique plumage of each bird.






Show Bird Species: 1. Green Canary, 2. Red Canary, 3. Love Bird, 4. Budgie (Parakeet), 5. Siberian Bullfinch, 6. Splendid
Be sure to also take a look at Luke Stephenson’s light-hearted and whimsical World Beard and Moustache Championships series. It is Movember, after all!

Karen Young

Karen Young is an artist and entrepreneur originally from San Francisco, who now lives and works in Chicago. She has been distributing and publishing her Loose Petals greeting card line nationwide for the past 20 years. Her Skyline series features 61 handmade illustrations of American and international destinations.

My poster style is influenced by my own travels around the world, retro posters, textiles, and vintage European ephemera. You’ll find a mix of elements in my posters. I appreciate modern European and Japanese design for it’s simplicity, and Bauhaus less is more attitude.











You can view all of Young’s 8 x 10 inch prints and 11 x 14 inch posters printed on a special 80 lb. recycled textured paper in her Etsy shop, Loose Petals.
