I actually went to college with two talented girls that became stationary makers. I’m super excited to see them both at the NY Stationary show that runs concurrently with Surtex. One is Joy of Nantaka Joy and one is Tara Hogan of Ink + Wit. Tara majored in illustration too. She was a year above me so we just missed each other but I’m pretty sure I remember hearing her name around and seeing her work in the hallways. We’ll finally get to officially meet at the show. Her work is really beautiful. Take a look at her site/shop.
Here’s a little info on Tara’s work,” INK&WIT is dedicated to creating a functional and sustainable product that is fun and elegant. Many of the original notecard designs have been modifed to postcards in order to conserve paper and save on postage. In addition, postcards are great to have on hand and send for any occasion. They tack to your inspiration board or double as a framed print. All of the art is designed and illustrated by Tara Hogan and printed on the finest quality paper with the intention to add more color to your sacred space or give another a special greeting.”
