favorite shop friday: elloh

This week's favorite shop of mine is elloh, selling the artwork of el (short for ellen) lohse.

There is just something about el's art that I like and I can't quite put my finger on it.

Maybe it's her popular culture subject matter...she seems to have the perfect sense of picking out the modern classics as well as the classic classics:





Or maybe it's the movies that inspire her which are all on my favorites list (am I sensing a kindred spirit?):





Or maybe it's the way she uses -- or doesn't use -- color:



Or perhaps it's her style...el seems to capture a character and mood perfectly with her almost cartoon-ish style while still retaining the smart intelligence of her topic:



Maybe it's simply because she has a whole series of paintings based on my all-time favorite movie:



Whatever the reason...I like her work...it makes me happy!



Go find your favorites (because I certainly found too many to post here) at http://elloh.etsy.com.

"where is my stapler" has to be my favorite line. I walk around the house with that voice, saying "where's my stapler" which includes anything I can't find.
My favorite show, The Office, love Pam, with that sweet personality but a bit of devil in her heart!
Anyway to copy those two, my kids will get the biggest laugh out of "where's my stapler" I want to put it on my refrig, where the stapler should be on top of.
Very cleaver!!
Also check your convo, I left a message - Pam
