My name is Diane and I'm a freelance editor based in Melbourne, Australia. Notes to a Further Excuse is a design and lifestyle blog that brings together my love of design, illustration, homewares, stationery, photography, travel and all manner of other other lovely things.
I thought I'd carry on the tea theme today with these great prints from Bristol, UK-based illustrators Jodie and David, aka Peskimo. The pair met while studying at university in Leeds, and were brought together via a mutual opinion about robots, kittens and evil monkeys. They formed Peskimo in 2004 and have together crafted a vast array of characters and creations that have appeared on t-shirts, billboards and nightclub walls, and in magazines and newspapers. Their inspiration comes from cartoons, vintage graphic design and overhearing people in the post office queue.
The pair have worked for clients such as Monocle, Creative Review, Time Out, Barclays, Mozilla and Vodafone, and they also have their own range of giclee prints and screenprints. Aside tea, Peskimo also like to illustrate other awesome things such as flamingos, sushi and cake! And each print is full of vibrant colours and cute details.
You can purchase Peskimo prints via their Etsy shop, and check out the Peskimo website and blog to see more of their work.
So what are your plans for the weekend? Whatever you're up to, I hope that you have a jolly time. I intend to do some chilling out, holiday organising and most probably drink some tea (and coffee!). Enjoy!
