I've never done this before - uploaded the same image twice in a week. But I had to. To me it represents every category of design that inspires me - vintage illustration, muted color, simple pattern, retro styling, boldly contrasting hues, well worn patina and interesting tattered ephemera. I can't get enough of this image. So, if you are a new visitor to Cafe Cartolina, this is us, in a nutshell, right here. But it's not just me - it's all of you too who appreciate the random collection of artistic curiosities that I strive to bring you every morning. Have a great weekend - be inspired.
