Hello, Krista Perry!January 4, 2018
Hello, Krista Perry! We wanted to show you a little sneak peek of one of our upcoming artists, Krista Perry, whose designs will be debuting this coming Spring for Red Cap Cards. Playful and bursting with color, with a dash of psychedelic nostalgia, Krista’s art just makes us happy. Nods to mid-century patterns plus bold fluorescents and bright colors make her sketchbooks stand-alone pieces of art. Check out the fantastic sketchbook video below for even more of her work. Also, make sure to follow her on Instagram for nearly daily updates of what she has been working on.
Located in Massachusetts, Krista studied and received an honors BFA in Illustration from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, where she was recognized by the Society of Illustrators Student Competition, and was printed on the cover of their student catalogue.
We also adore the bio on her site, which is as colorful as her artwork:
“When she isn’t illustrating, she loves people watching, seeing live music, and daydreaming about fabulous Italian dishes.
Someday she would like to….
- own a fully-functioning disco ball (and learn how to dance)
- be on The Price is Right
- hug a real live cactus in a real live desert
- go on a pizza date with John Stamos (have mercy, am I right?)
- open her own roller rink
- go on tour with a band“
