I really love stationary and have decided that this is what I want to focus on, so I decided that I would get some inspiration and influences from artists/designers who specialise in stationary. I found the artist Tinee Hacker, who is an illustrator and print maker based in Germany. She specialises in hand cut lino prints and stamps to create beautiful and whimsical characters and designs for paper based goods, including note books, tags and cards. She is inspired by childhood characters from stories and her memories, some are printing with lino prints and then others are stamped, she also uses collage in her work to create more detail and interest. Personally I really admire the brown paper notebooks, with a beautiful print of a character on top, I think that it looks really clean and simple and something that really influences and inspires me. I also love the beautiful and interesting gift tags, I love all the different shapes and types of paper and ribbon that she uses.
