An Etsy shop we love belongs to graphic designer, Sabrina, of Small Caps Berlin. She works with paper, letters and a letterpress machine, printing everything by hand on Golding Pearl Letterpress, her Adana 8×5 or her Korrex proof press. She uses metal or wood type, vintage paper, old maps, magnesium or photopolymer clichés for the illustrations.
Art and epic adventure join forces in Poketo’s latest line of artist series wallets. Inspired by Cartoon Network’s popular TV show Adventure Time, Poketo now has exciting limited edition Adventure Time wallets that were designed by Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward, Andy Ristaino, Jolby, Jon Vermilyea, and Peskimo.
All seven wallets reflect the artists’ signature style as well as the colorful imagination, silly mischief, and radical fun that has made the Emmy-nominated cartoon appealing to viewers of all ages. The wallets include a matching pin and reveal a different Adventure Time pattern on the inside. With expandable card and cash slots, a coin purse, and made of a durable double layer of vinyl, every Poketo x Adventure Time wallet is built to keep necessities safe and endure all of life’s everyday adventures.
The Poketo x Adventure Time wallets were met with wild success at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con — with many of the styles nearly selling out! The beautiful, artistic renditions of the cartoon’s memorable characters make the Poketo x Adventure Time wallets a brilliant addition to the ever-growing collection of Poketo artist wallets.
All Poketo x Adventure Time wallets are available online at poketo.com and at the new flagship store in Downtown Los Angeles.

About Adventure Time: ADVENTURE TIME WITH FINN AND JAKE™ is about two best friends: Jake the Dog and Finn the Human. Jake is a wise, kind-hearted dog while Finn is a silly kid who wants more than anything else to become a great hero. These two dudes are like family: they stick with each other through thick and thin, trust one another with secrets and look to each other for advice when problems get out of hand. Most importantly, Finn and Jake crack each other up by acting like idiots and joking around as they traverse across a massive and treacherous island seeking heart-pounding adventure to pass the time.
These posters by Handz on Etsy really caught our eye. Great work!
