This exciting and much anticipated series of 8 new art prints has explored landscapes in a more graphic, pattern-like style than ever before. These 'patternscapes' have come together over several months and within the series there is sure to be a new adventure for everyone!
Currently, Wish You Were Here is a wonderful collection of 25 eye-popping, optimistic and inspiring A3+ art prints. By the end of April 2009 WYWH will be launching the much anticipated super range of 100% cotton drill, 46cm x 46cm cushions in 3 patternscape designs! Alongside the cushions there will also be available a superb range of 9 high-colour, high-quality fabrics also derived from the patternscapes.
WYWH is an exciting venture created by UK based husband and wife team, Fiona and Ben O'Brien (aka Ben the Illustrator). Ben is the illustrator extraordinaire and Fiona, with her background in Advertising and a penchant for ideas, design and interiors, conceptualises and manages their business and products. Together they create illustrations for commissioned advertising campaigns, editorial, interiors and of course their own art prints and products under the brand 'Wish You Were Here'.
The concept behind "Wish You Were Here!" was to create a brand of illustrated functional items that the house proud, design conscious could enjoy in their home "We wanted a way for people to enjoy the optimism and vibrancy of Ben's illustrations in the comfort of their own home, and better still be able to use the items everyday!. Our aim is to produce beautifully conceived prints and products that retain our eco and humanitarian ethics, envelope them in Ben’s awe-inspiring, colourful illustrations creating the perfect combination of function and beauty".
"We understand that times are a little more difficult out there at the moment so we wanted to create uplifting artwork that offered people affordable escapism from their everyday grind. In a time where expensive, luxury escapes are not as possible, the aim of WYWH is to bring those beautiful, far away, idyllic places directly to you, beautifying your home in the process!"
