Are you an Etsy fan? I’m so into Etsy – you can even follow me on my page there to see my favorites! I shop occasionally, I window shop often. I favorite things I think are beautiful, or things I intend to buy. And every now and then, the call is too strong and I treat myself to a piece of jewelry or a beauty or hair item. Or most recently, a poster. Let me tell you all about it with a bit of backstory first.
As some of you may know, last year my husband and I bought our first home. It’s been such an enjoyable experience figuring it all out, paint and tiles and decor. For the first time, my home office is its own ROOM. A room of one’s own!
Our old landlord was cautious about his floors and his walls — “don’t hang up 50 things on our walls,” he said when we first moved in. So now of course I have my own space, I’ve got all this pent up decoration desire inside of me. I decided to make one wall of my room a gallery wall. Inspired by this post on Apartment Therapy (I LOVE that site), I set out to create a gallery wall that inspires beauty and power, with images I can look at every day that will “spark joy,” (to quote Marie Kondo). Two of the images are prints by late, great Trinidadian artist Boscoe Holder. One is a watercolor my mom bought for me of my childhood dream house. One is an oil painting I did myself in college. And one is an amazing Wonder Woman image I discovered and bought on Etsy. Afro Wonder Woman is EVERYTHING! Designed by Daniel Price of DEP Designs, she’s the perfect addition to my home office.
Here’s the gallery wall for now. I plan to add more pieces, but this is a start!
And here I am, chilling in my office.
Isn’t she awesome?
Daniel specializes in minimalist movie prints, comic prints and city art. He does the typical Wonder Woman and Catwoman images, but he also offers them with natural hair. Behold! Afro Catwoman.
I asked Daniel about his inspiration, and he explained “I’m an artist and I try to make money by selling art prints but I am also an advocate of cultural diversity.” He seems like a pretty cool guy.
I was most taken with Wonder Woman and Catwoman, but Daniel’s other work is also cool and minimalist chic, inspired by key characters or scenes from popular movies.
