I was a printmaking major in college.
That seems like some kind of shameful confession when written. Anyway I was, and because of that I instantly recognized the talent and skill in these silkscreen prints. I just had to buy all three, because I rarely buy myself original artwork (generally i just beg my auntie Jan for her paintings) and they were actually within my budget.
See Mum and Dad, that tuition did pay off!
Here are the three prints and a few details, because I love details.

These are all the work of artist/graphic designer Sol Linero, who lives here in Argentina. She has a flickr site with some of her work (and a lot of her new dog). There is a print of bathroom objects I am coveting (sounds strange but check it out- it's too cute).
I love the color combos and the "retro-modern-stylized-botanical study" look (with a little bit of Pennsylvania dutch thrown in). Don't you?
There is actually a subtle gold tone metallic color used quite a bit, which was hard for my little ol' camera to capture.
Now, to find a spot to hang them....


  1. Hi Erin!

    I'm thrilled to find these lovely words about my illustrations! Thanks, thanks, thanks.
    I will be doing more silkscreen printings this year, so I will keep you posted.
    By the way, I love your work too!

    Thanks again!


  2. Yay!! I would be so happy to see more work! Thanks Sol-you are very creative!
