Designwali Giveaway #5....Original Block Print by Minouette!

Friday, December 9, 2011

Fridays are always good, but they are even better when you can win an original block print on Japanese Kozo paper. Sounds awesome already right? Toronto printmaker Ele from Minouette is offering one of you lucky readers a chance to win her "Fly Agaric Linocut" original lino block print. Etsy browsing led me to this fabulous local artist whose work is a lovely combination of science and art. Ele is inspired by fauna, myths, legends, nature, science and the unknown. What blows my mind is this artist is a marine geophysicist by day and printmaker by night. Go google that. Art is vital for Ele. She loves exercising both sides of her brain by using what she sees at work (yes all that wicked marine life, can you imagine?) and depicting it as her subject matter. On top of all of this, Ele is the captain of the Toronto Etsy team. She truly is one Renaissance woman. Time to win this right? Here's how:

1. Follow me on Google connect and leave me a comment below telling me what is your favourite Minoette piece by checking out Ele's shop, facebook page or blog. If you can't "google connect me" just make sure to leave me your email in your comment below so I can reach you if you win.
2. For a bonus entry just feature this givewaway on your blog, facebook page or give Ele a shout out on twitter and let me know below.

There is such a story around this little mushroom. Who knew? All I know is that my kids would adore it (like me). Find this original limited edition print here and read the story about this little species.


I will announce the winner on Monday December 12, 2011. This giveaway is open internationally so time to go learn something new and visit Ele's shop and get a treat for the eyes & the mind! Be sure to say hello to her on her blogtwitter & facebook. Plus you'll find loads of Toronto talent on her Toronto Etsy team! Time to look at some pretty.

These linocut prints are gorgeous! Visit Minouette now.

Winners for all my giveways this week & last will be announced on Monday. So if you haven't entered go here, here, here, here and here. 

Happy Friday folks.

Thanks for putting together such a delightful and flattering post! :D I'll go package the linocut for now, so it's ready for the lucky winner.

You have had just the most amazing giveaways here, DW!! I am blown away!

These linocuts are gorgeous! (I had a go at linocut printing earlier in the year so have huge appreciation for the skill).

Ele's shop is wonderful, I love all her designs, the sailing ships and unicorn ones are particularly grabbing me and the Flying Agaric is fabulously unique, LOVE IT!

Thanks so much for hosting this amazing giveaway!

Gorgeous linocuts! Every one of them is lovely. Just when I thought the animal ones were nice, I spied the poppies. But my favorite would have to be the Radiolarians. Love that one.
Thanks for making this international.

So pretty! I actually think I like the mushrooms the best, though the snowflakes (all of them!) are a close second. Terrific giveaway, dude. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

PS - posted on my personal Facebook page and on the George Brown Interior Decorating Group page ... does that get me two points? Kidding :)
