Congratulations, Berkley Illustration!

A couple weeks ago, I blogged about Ryan Berkley's Mr. & Mrs. Cardinal set (i.e. the lone print Husband and I have hung up in our house). So imagine my delight when I was flipping through the latest Urban Outfitters catalog, and saw some framed Berkley Illustration prints.

One of my favorite things is being way ahead of a trend, but one of my other favorite things is seeing independent artists having market success!

There are so many hard working artists and designers who tirelessly hawk their goods on Etsy and at craft fairs. Every once in a while, something awesome happens (like being picked up by Urban Outfitters). So when that happens, we should all rejoice and find renewed vigor for our own independent ventures.

One of my goals for this site is to celebrate local designers and artists and other noteworthy independent designers and artists. If you are interested in being profiled on Adored Austin, please don't hesitate to contact me. Keep up the hard work. Oh, and Ryan? Congrats!
