Alberto Cerriteño is originally from Mexico City and now lives and works in Portland. He has more than ten years of experience as Art Director in several agencies doing advertising, print, interactive, installations and educational work, and is now a freelance artist and illustrator. Alberto has developed his own very personal technique and style, with its roots in traditional Mexican art with its rich textures and decorative patterns.
Alberto’s colorways are spot on and the geometric rhythms are hypnotic, but for me, it’s really the textures that bring it home.
From the editorial inbox:
Marcella Kriebel has created very unique, illustrated cookbook with major handmade appeal. She hand-lettered every page, and each recipe features a unique layout with fun watercolor artwork. This is a hardcover cookbook measuring 9.5 x 11.25 inches, and it’s printed on premium paper and produced in the USA. It would make a great gift for a foodie, art enthusiast, or traveler (or someone who’s a combo of all three!).
The recipes are many of Marcella’s favorite dishes, desserts, and drinks from Latin America featuring tamales, ceviche, empanadas, flan and many more favorites from countries like Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, and Puerto Rico. She’s also included an overview of Latin American cheeses available in the US, and pages describing various methods of chili preparation, how to prepare cactus, and tips for frying foods.
This looks like a really wonderful addition to an art lover/cook’s shelf.
Purchase the book through Marcella’s Etsy page.
I don’t think you can ever have too many canvas totes. Especially ones with fun, hand-done prints.

I’ve talked about Melanie Mikecz’s abstract artworks before, but little did I know that she has work for sale on Oopsy Daisy. According to their site: Melanie Mikecz specializes in a charming, mixed-media style. Originally from Wisconsin, she earned a BFA from the Washington University School of Art in St. Louis. Melanie has worked as an illustrator and designer in Boston, London, and San Francisco, absorbing cultural and artistic influences from each of these places. Although her main artistic endeavor is illustration, she also enjoys painting in her spare time, which pushes her talent to new areas of exploration.

The holidays are right around the corner (already!), and I’m usually completely unprepared. This year I’m trying to do better. I’ve started by bookmarking things that catch my eye and might make lovely gifts/stocking stuffers for friends. I noticed that I was saving a lot of blue… All these are under $20.
