I've been thinking recently about how I need more positivity in my life, particularly in the blank space on the wall above my desk. I've always found 'inspirational' posters kinda depressing, you know the ones that hang in schools everywhere with a photo of nature and a motivational saying underneath. I'm entirely sure why, maybe its the association with school. So instead I've found some wonderful inspirational artwork that I'd love to have hanging above my desk. Prints that don't take the clichés too seriously, that have fun and would make you smile every time you looked at them.
'Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining' is a hand pulled screen print and is also available in silver on grey paper.
'Tea Revives You', so true! Another handpulled screenprint inspired by a 1930's advertising slogan.
'Keep Calm & Carry On' The now famous poster that was designed at the outbreak of World War 2 to help keep the public calm. It works just as well for most everyday situations.'Make Your Own Path' These posters are hand letterpressed by Douglas Wilson onto vintage maps. Each one is unique. All the posters above are available from the Keep Calm Gallery.
'Today is Awesome' digital print from Small Object on Etsy. Edition of 500.
