Happy Art

Happy Menocal has made its way around the internet before, so this is nothing brand spankin' new.  But I just keep coming back to their illustrations over and over.  They have remained some of my favorite over the years.  Their custom heraldry has got to be some of the most artistic and creative out there.
 

I always like to check out their site for new illustrations. When I looked today I saw them in a different way. I love the everydayness about them.  Is that even a word?  They make a scary shark look like its smiling, or a family pet look like a prince or princess

In college I studied abroad in Spain and bull fights are just part of the life there.  This Matador might be my new obsession.  My gallery wall is filled with meaningful things and this print just has to find a way up there.
Hopefully the husband reads this post today. Hint, hint.

I love the crests. I think a custom crest would be so cool to hang in an entryway.

Happy Menocal is one of my favorites! I just love every single one of the illustrations. That matador is pretty fabulous though, would definitely make a gallery wall complete!

Happy is the BEST!

Years ago, she did a pet portrait that I gave to my (now) husband for our first Christmas together. Years later, she ddesigned our wedding invitations. We love the crest she designed and we still use it! She is a delightful person and amazing to work with!
