Speaking of Hipsters, I was in Uptown the other day meeting up with some old buddies. Went by the Oaklandish storefront, who happen to make some of my favorite T's, and ran across some stickers/pins/magnets by Birdvs.Bird. Hot damn these things are ridiculous. I had to buy a 12-pack of stickers and a pin. They also have some sets that are particular to birds of Lake Merritt. Hell yes, Black-crowned Night Heron.
Which brings us to another topic Christian and I have spent the past few months discussing. What I like to call Twee critter art. Here are two more of our favorites.
Zoo Portraits by Yago Partal.
And some similar stuff, but all hand drawn, by Berkely Illustrations.
If any of the artists see this post, feel free to send us some free stuff/sponsor our camera trapping adventures. We'll gladly talk up your art.
