Some of the designers, creators, and crafters that are found on Etsy are completely inspiring with their DIY attitude. And I felt the blog needed a bit more *unconventional inspiration. Bobby Adams of Spaghetti Kids loves to style kids in hip gear that would be rocked by their parental counterpart. With hoodies, pullovers, and cute cardigans Bobby plays with patterns and colors making clothes only the coolest kids could adorn. The signature *hamburger patch isn’t all about heart health but you can’t but help falling in love with the stylish designs of Spaghetti Kids!

Check out his Etsy store!

*unconventional inspiration because art and music are always seen as sources of inspiration
* hamburger- unless that hamburger is a veggiburger which in that case mow-down!

 I fell in love with Kevin Peterson’s work the moment I saw the juxtaposition of innocent children in a graffiti filled playground. They are as at home as they would be running across lush green fields. He captures their expressions with his talent for realism. From the texture of the walls that colorful writing is drawn to the strands of hair that fall down the child’s face; Kevin draws you in and dares you to see if it’s a painting or photograph.
