December Giveaway

Just in time for the holidays, I am pleased to share an exciting new source for Brooklyn artisan gifts. A little birdie (a pigeon to be precise) told me about With Love, From Brooklyn, a new website that offers limited-edition gift selections curated by Brooklyn tastemakers. On the site you can find artisan gifts for everyone on your list from the locavore to the foodie to the coffee connoisseur.

The site also features a Claudia Pearson Pop-Up Shop where you can purchase my lovely prints, tea towels, and greeting cards. I collaborated with a friend, Dara Furlow, to provide my illustrations for the website and logo.

Take a look, I think you're going to love it.

Dara is offering one lucky winner the Locally Grown gift set with a value of $85. Please post a comment below on your favorite "go to" gift for the season and a winner will be randomly selected Tuesday December 20th. Please add your email with the comment.

on your favorite of the 3 new tea towel designs.

New Rug Designs

I was recently asked to create some themed kitchen rug
designs. These will be made up as samples, exhibited at
a trade show and hopefully ordered by lots of great
stores. Then they will go into production.
I'd love to see this happen so keep your fingers
crossed for me.
Here's a selection of the designs.

New Products In My Shop

I'm so happy that finally I have my new designs finished
and ready to share with the world.

I've had a terrible time getting tea towels from my
usual supplier due to the cotton shortage and price
rises but we've finally resolved it and here they are.

My 2012 Buy Local Calendar makes a come back; I'd
say it's become a tradition for many households.
Stay tuned for Monday and a long awaited giveaway.

I have been a busy bee as you can tell from the lack of news here.
Finally I can share one of the projects I've been working on.

I was commissioned to create recipe Tips and Tricks for Chobani,
that lovely Greek yogurt that's become the hottest item in the
grocery store. I illustrated 6 tips in total and each one had
4 easy steps and a sample of the tools you need.
I was able to experiment with some new techniques and
really love the graphic simplicity of the hands in line holding
the objects in color and texture.

For the full set please go here.

My Gorgeous Studio

Firstly I'd like to thank all the people that came out in the
cold, pouring rain on Saturday and shopped at Crafty Bastard.
Despite the weather, it was the best fair I've ever had
and lovely to get all my tea towels out there again.
I'm busy with my new towel designs including my
2012 Calendar towel and here's a sneak peek.

I've been working in my new studio and it's such a calm, inspiring space.

Crafty Bastard in DC

This weekend I'm making my annual pilgrimage down to Washington
for the great outdoor fair Crafty Bastard on Saturday October 1.
Nearly 200 designers and makers fill the outdoor space
in Adams Morgan and it's well worth a visit.
I have a brand new shipment of tea towels (which I've been out of
since April) and all my posters, prints and books so please pay me
a visit at booth 94.

Share a studio with me

I have some really exciting news that I'm moving my studio out
of my apartment and taking over the apartment downstairs.
It's an incredible opportunity to still be based at home
but separate my work space and it's a gorgeous sun drenched studio.

I need to rent out 2 private rooms which would make fantastic
studio or office space to a designer, architect, media business.
It would also be a great private yoga, massage therapy,
acupuncture and holistic space.

The whole space is $1400 and comprises of 2 rooms shown
below with a full kitchen, bathroom, WIFI, heat and hot water included.
I'm also offering to rent the 2 rooms individually - Room 1
is $900 and Room 2 is $500.
There is 24 hour access and it's located in the
heart of Clinton Hill close to Pratt, great restaurants, cafes,
BAM and all trains.
Please email me directly if you or anyone you know is interested.

Hurricane Irene Fundraiser

I'm back from my amazing month off and slowly
adjusting to the routines again.
I missed Hurricane Irene and gathered it blew over
New York, not causing much damage. However,
counties in New York,
New Jersey, and Vermont have been declared "major disasters" by the
federal government.
An estimated 80% of Greenmarket farmers have been impacted,
with about 10% reporting severe loss—80-100% of their products.

There are ways you can help by donating to Grow NYC. For every $50
you give, you will receive one of my Greenmarket posters.
You can also buy them from my shop where $5 from every
purchase will be donated.
