Bits of the ocean
Digital collage inspired by my beautiful collection of seaweed prints from the 1800s.

Seeing my birdies "in the wild" is always very exciting :-)

Those old illustrations are marvelous aren't they? I get all gaga over Ernst Haeckel's illustrations.

Your work just exudes happiness. Love the jellyfish, especially.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I love those book prints and the fact that some are half finished. Your artwork is delightful too, it's always so exciting to see your own work 'live' out in the real world.

The vintage prints are so lovely and delicate and I like your modern 'Geninne' take on them.

Even though you have had many of your designs used commercially, it must be a thrill each time you see them on sale in public. If it were me, I'd do a little subdued "happy dance" any time I would see my work on display and for sale in a store! Continued success! You deserve it!

I like seeing your stuff on shelves too! Its exciting. I always end up picking it up and admiring it.

I just started a series of paintings that has an ocean theme. Its inspired by a description of New York harbor teaming with sea life way back when. Did you know they used to have whales?

Anyway if you have a chance check out my squid.

Magical illustrations, well done! Something really soft and warm about them, like a sense of familiarity and a feeling of childhood - both of which in the best way possible.

Love the digi illo and yes your birdies are making their way around - I just spied that very same planner (which I'm happy to say I love + have a copy of) in a DIY magazine propped up in a metal tote!

Hi Geninne, I've been following your blog for a couple of months now and really enjoy your work. Thanks for the calendar pages - love them : ) I also wanted to let you know that I bought your planner at an Anthropologie in San Jose, CA. I knew the instant I saw them that I recognized those birdies! Dee
