Out of the Void Posters
Out of the Void Poster by Bebops

I am constantly astonished and entranced by the myriad forms of life on this planet. To quote one of my very favorite authors, Annie Dillard, in
Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, "the creator has pizzazz".

I hope to display a variety of animal images on this blog to delight us all. I have created many products featuring wildlife and pets for my Zazzle stores, Bebop's Place and Bebop's Weddings, using my original photographs and designs. I am also constantly amazed at the gorgeous animal products available from the rest of the Zazzle community. I am hoping others will enjoy this blog and even be moved to purchase some of these lovely items for gifts or just for the pleasure of having such beauty around.

A pair of playful dachshunds are romping in the sun without a care in the world on this custom postage stamp.

From the designer: Add some Arts and Crafts charm to your decor with this cheery Voysey throw pillow in The Tulip Tree pattern. I love the sense of gentle sunlight and deep summer sky. Your eye is drawn to seeking out the blackbirds, just like in real life -- the magical, playful touch of a Voysey's mature design genius. (This same pattern is also available in the smaller lumbar pillow in my store.)

Voysey's The Tulip Tree pattern is at once elegant and playful, the Art Nouveau influence evident in the gracefully curving branches and petals. It has of the feel of an English country cottage chintz, but certainly an extraordinary one, and would be at home in either a casual or more formal setting. Pleasing complementary color scheem of pale yellow tulip tree flowers and leaves against a sodalite blue background, with accents of black birds and flower stamens.

The Tulip Tree by C.F.A. Voysey, 1918 - 1919, England, Arts and Crafts Movement, repeat pattern. Original pieces: wallpaper and fabric, color woodblock, hand printed. Lovingly hand restored and prepared for print by a professional graphic artist experienced in art restoration.

Rooster and Hen Cap. "I Rule the Roost" crows the rooster. Don't be too sure, Mr. Cock-a-doodle-do. Everyone in this Chicken Yard knows that Ms Hen leads you around by the beak.
