A Rainbow of Sweet Creatures Reminiscent of Your First Book



Oh my gosh remember those "Little Golden Books" most of us had as our first books!? They each had that narrow golden binder and hand-painted little kids or baby animals on the cover? Much like the images above! Thats what the artist Amefuri Kumanoko made me think of. When do you see baby animals so lovingly and innocently painted anymore? What golden book do you have fond memories of? Mine was about four puppies and the four seasons. Can't remember the name!

You're right, these drawings evoke innocence that is all but gone in today's modern world. I really adore this artwork, thank you so much for choosing and posting them.

They still have little golden books, they are just lower quality now. I particularly remember The Pokey Little Puppy, but I had like a million of them haha

Sasa - you always appreciate the art i post and i'm glad :)

Sara Mari - wow i'm so thrilled you truly see the value of this kind of art. no string attached, cuteness for cute sake art. i remember the pokey little puppy!! awwww!!! i noticed as i got older the golden books became just rehashes of disney movies lol.

I absolutely love reading your blog although I don't always have the time to explore it as I should :)
I was wondering if I could make a suggestion of feature... I found this shop a few months ago, it's from the UK and she does this amazing food clay jewelry.
I absolutely love her stuff, is super kawaii and I got some of them for me and I have to say they look even better live so I was wondering if it wouldn't be a nice suggestion for you to feature... anyway, here are her links:

Lily - of course!!!!!!! :)

Ester Durães - i adore suggestions. it makes my life so much easier. i can't wait to check out these links. just don't be offended if i don't post the artist! i try not to show things that i've shown similar versions of before. especially with food accessories. so many people make them so i've become so picky lol. still don't let that discourage you or make you think i don't appreciate you help immensely! thank you so so so much!

ester - by the way i saw it and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! i need to wait for her official site to be up because there's nothing to buy right now!!! when her site is up i will totally feature her. great great link!!!

Bianca said...

These are cute like those little golden books! I remember those :D

Ester Durães said...

aww I'm glad you'll feature her!! she's really amazing and super original! :)
I know she's currently working on her website and even tough she doesn't have a website with stuff for pre-sale, most part of people buy from her the stuff she has as a 'catalogue' on her MySpace or even the things she does and posts on Facebook. she takes orders and she does repeat accessories :) Also, people are always able to ask her the prices of stuff and send her a mail :)

oh and btw, I told her about the feature, hope you don't mind...she's super professional and kind so I tought this would make her happy :) And maybe this will work as a reason for her to work even harder on building her website ^^

Sasa said...

Of course i do ^^ you have really good taste when it comes to ilustrators. There may be times when I don't really like something, but you pick up something I like 98% of the time! hehe

So cute, It reminds me of Martine, the heroine of a french book collection for child ^-^

PetSugar said...

Bianca - those books hold great memories.

Ester - oh of course i don't mind you telling her! i still want to wait for her to put up a website because the myspace page isn't so clear you know? people will be deterred right away. i can't wait for her website to go up :)

Sasa - lol! thanks for not telling me when you hate something! lol i'd feel so bad!

Yoshi - aw i'd love to see those!

Ester Durães said...

Yeah, I understand :) I've talked with her and she says she's overloaded with comissions so it might take a while until she gets the website ready :) she has an Ebay page tough and she told me she'll put up new stuff for this summer :)
