puffins fill in for the penguins

I'll have to dig through my archives to see if I can find another penguin, but this might be the best I have to round out penguin Marushka week - a passel of puffins.

Penguins in their Marushka habitat

From a recent ebay auction (ended at $13 or so), a posse of penguins (unframed):



And from the same seller (closing at $9), the penguins go for a swim:

Three penguins star in a Marushka

So I'm not sure if I'll run out of pictures before the week is up, but I'm thinking this week's theme will be penguins.

Penguins are an odd fit with Marushka's usual nature silhouettes of shells and sailboats, but certainly a recurrent theme.

To start the week, a penguin print in brown from the collection of Warhof on Flickr.

Silkscreens from Dinah Coops

Another post on Marushka-like screenprints...

Check out this print by Dinah Coops, a sea fan napkin print. The image is silkscreened on linen.


And a mate from Marushka!

Marushka - coral? (black on linen)

Dinah's collection has a number of other neat silkscreens as well, most with a more modern style. Here's another, a wallhanging:

Big Squeeze Press

Here's an Etsy find that caught my eye - the silkscreen prints of Big Squeeze Press.

The medium is much like Marushka, but the style seems like a modern take on the Marushka nature themes, perhaps Marushka visits Anthropologie. Very neat!





Marushka-like canvases at Target



While at Target, I've noticed they've been offering different versions of botanical prints on stretched canvases - very Marushka like.

You can pick up this set of silk canvases for just under $70 here.
