Danielle Kroll - Unexpected Places

Danielle Kroll - Unexpected Places

I meant to post about this sooner but time got away from me. I have some prints available at art.com! The pieces for sale are a part of my ‘painting on photo’ series. The books I use in these works are saved from thrift shops, the trash, or from dusty bookstores. The paintings give the buried pages of forgotten books a chance to be seen again. I’ve always been interested in salvaging unwanted items so this series is really close to my heart in many ways.

I do love how these paintings look in the actual books so it’s a shame that I have to tear them out in the end. It’s such an interesting experience to flip through an educational book and to find something like a funky rainbow snake slithering down a hill. I wish more people could see that side of these pieces. Hopefully I’ll be able to figure something out in the future.

At the Beach

Danielle Kroll - At the Beach

I’m so happy to share this painting I worked on for a One Kings Lane summer print series. My piece was inspired by nostalgic days spent at the beach… eating popsicles, searching for tiny shells, and playing Gin Rummy on the beach blanket (while trying not to let the wind screw up the game). I used to spend my summers at Seaside Heights before the Jersey Shore took over. It’s just not the same anymore!

You can shop my print here until July 19. And a little bit about me on their blog here. Very honored to be among such great artists!

Save the Date

This one was a lot of fun to work on! It’s a little booklet I put together as a Save The Date for an amazing couple in Chicago. After hearing all about their many memories and stories, we decided that a book of illustrations should be the way to go. The pages are filled with sentimental imagery that would really only make sense to the couple and their loved ones. We kept it simple (and a bit abstract) by not including a background story about the paintings. Complete with a stitched binding and some jazzy gold for the cover.

Danielle Kroll - Zodiac Tattlies

I have some exciting news, astrology fans! These zodiac symbols are now available as temporary tattoos at Tattly! Some of you might recognize the art from these colorful little notebooks. Even if you are a divination skeptic, these look pretty cool if I do say so myself.

I just added some new silkscreens into my online shop. Both are 11″ x 14″ printed in an edition of 50. Just in time for summer!

All orders placed between June 6th – June 27th will be mailed out at the end of the month. I’ll be taking a few glorious weeks off for a cross-country road trip!

Danielle Kroll - Healthy Foods

These are some illustrations I recently did for a kitchen issue of Spanish AD Magazine. The article is about food that was once considered unhealthy but is now recommended as healthy. Although who could really eat a sardine as cute as that?!
