Girl who loved birds...

Very much infatuated with Sam of
Matou en Peluche's newest illustration!



She sent me on a small obsessive
search for all things vintage and inked...



And in the process found
this romantic idea by Mister Senatori:



And also these adorable
Love Tattoo Antique Doll Charms
by Dear Dodo:



Thank you so much Sam,
Your work is forever inspiring!

Kelley Anne said...

I agree! The bird tattoo motif is beautiful. I've toyed with getting one much like the blue birds she drew. Too chicken though:)

Hey Harriet said...

Sam is an amazing artist and I love that new one of hers! I also love your inspired finds! What a fun post!

Mondo said...

Amazing what a combo vintage tat's and new art - top finds Gabbi. There's something very bizarre/sideshowish about the vintage tattoo scene..

I love all of Sam's work, but this one is truly a favorite!

silvi said...

I'm afraid of these legs! LOL

This art reminds me a whole lot of a book I came across at a bookstore a couple months back. It is really so beautiful! I love the print that your friend drew.
