It's been awhile since we posted on our shop blog, but we like to think we have good reason - we've temporarily relocated to London! We are here doing a postgraduate course in design for a year, and we've spent the past month getting settled and acquainted with our new home.
While our studio will now be in our home in London, Modvin is still primarily based in Houston, as we will continue working with our established print shops in the US to print and ship orders. We are also working with printers in the UK and Europe, which means that those of you in Europe will receive your prints much more quickly :)
Maps & More Maps
Firstly - so many more illustrated maps of some of our favorite places around the world are now up and available! There are many more to come - so if you don't see your favorite city/state/country, hit reply to this email and let us know which place to work on next!
We love working on maps and painting new landmarks from around the world - due to popular request, we're also planning on offering customizable maps, which are only currently available over on our Etsy shop.
Since Modvin is all about travel-inspired art, we want to share more about our process, inspiration, and all the tips/resources on painting and travel that we have collected over the years.
To that end, we're working on a more personal blog/site sharing our resources at the intersection of art and travel - stay tuned for the launch this fall, and let us know what you'd like to see - urban sketches? watercolor tutorials? illustrated travel guides? all/none of the above?
Last but not least, we're offering a free autumn-themed printable set this month, featuring all the little things that make fall - fall. Make sure you are subscribed to our newsletter for free printables each month!
