I Heart “Pounou Hearts You”

Image

I have gone entirely too long without updating my blog, but life in the city has definitely taken a toll on my free time. Working in SoHo has proven to be a blessing and a curse. I am surrounded by some of the most beautiful fashion and design the city has to offer, but I spend entirely way too much time wondering what meals I can skip so that I can purchase them.

Regardless, the work I am in allows me to be exposed to a lot of different designers, many of which are based in New York City and stop in every once in awhile to see how things are going. This week I had the pleasure of meeting the illustrator behind the Pounou hearts you blog. Everyday she uploads a hand drawn illustration of Pounou and her chihuahua Em’Bo carrying out everyday situations. Each character has it’s own personality and the site provides some descriptions of the very relatable and comical characters that are used in her pieces (spoiler: Em’Bo is based off of her real life pup). The quirky and girly style is so adorable you will absolutely fall in love with it.

Pounou and her buddies are also featured on greeting cards, cosmetic cases and coin purses that you can purchase on Etsy or if you live in NYC you can find them at different markets listed on the blog. They are very unique and perfect for friends or significant others on special occasions.
