Most of the beautiful things you see here at Cafe Cartolina are the works of talented artists and crafts people who put their heart and soul into their work. Even the vintage images you see here are treasures sourced by passionate collectors who are committed to restoring and preserving antique art for everyone to enjoy for years to come. Nothing at Cafe Cartolina is a free printable or a free download. You may not borrow, drag or right click any image for your art or craft because you will find that almost everything here is copyrighted material - this includes everything that falls under the Cartolina brand. You are welcome to reblog but please credit the original source. Thank you!
I was talking to Doug last night about how seldom I see really unique and original art these days. There's so much similar stuff out there - which I don't understand (what's the point of making art that looks like someone else's art?) Then we got talking about Dolan Geiman and how unique his work is. Recently he's been recognized for his talent by some big names like Fossil and he deserves it. I love seeing his newest work and the long panel below just blew me away yesterday when I saw it. He's a super talent - someone who just does his own thing and doesn't worry about everyone else - and that's what it's all about - do your own thing!
Fiona Richards | Cartolina Cards . . . . I have never considered myself a trend follower. The only things I follow are my instincts. Collecting and creating have taught me to trust the art that moves me and question the fads that don't. This blog reflects the diverse design influences behind my work and all the things I love.
