I recently made a bunch of hand sculpted, hand painted, one-of-a-kind ceramic tees. I started them as ornaments but I think they look cute just hanging on a wall too. While I’m saving most of them for gifts I added some to my online shop. I’m pretty new to working with ceramics so I was just glad that these little guys didn’t break and even more excited that they actually turned out how I wanted them to. I’m thinking about taking some of the artwork and turning them into large-scale patterns. Could be cool!

New Prints

Danielle Kroll - Dudes at the Park

Danielle Kroll - Ladies at the Beach

You can enjoy summery vibes all year round with these 2 new silkscreens! “Dudes at the Park” is a brand new print inspired by 80s skaters. For this second run of “Ladies at the Beach” I’ve given some of the girls patterned suits in canary yellow. Both are 4-colors printed on a plush cream paper in an edition of 50.

Happy December

Danielle Kroll - Winter Scene

Happy December, friends! I hope you had a warm and plentiful Thanksgiving. Why is it that Fall goes by so fast but Winter seems like it lasts half the year? I’m trying to mentally prepare myself to accept the impending cold by thinking about all the good things Winter brings: ice skating, baking cookies, snuggly blankets, fireplaces, Christmas lights, quiet nights, snow fall, warm soup, sleeping in, cozy sweaters…. sounds pretty nice, right?

This illustration is a page from a book I worked on with Wide Eyed Editions called Nature’s Day. It’s an educational book that teaches kids about nature through the seasons. Nature’s Day will be released in May so check back for more information after the snow comes and goes.

I’m excited to share these new paintings I worked on for Katie Armour’s new print site, Buddy Editions. They are all limited edition prints available in four sizes. I wanted to make artwork that felt fun, lively, colorful, but also sophisticated. I gathered a lot of inspiration from old New York, René Gruau and Art Deco fashion plates when working on these. I’m so proud of the way these pieces turned out! Go check them out at Buddy Editions, along with all the other great curated art.

Custom Framing

November 11, 2014

Danielle Kroll - Framed Prints

If you’re like me, you may end up buying lots of art that you love, only for it to end up in that dusty pile under your bed because you never got a frame for it. Well… good news! I’ve partnered with Simply Framed to offer custom framing in my shop. Each frame is made with beautiful hardwood moulding in your choice of Natural Wood, White or Black. Overly ornate frames usually just end up distracting me from the artwork so I love how simple these are.

An additional 2-3 weeks will be added to delivery time because the frames are made by hand. Find out more here!

Danielle Kroll - Sketchbook

I did a little painting by candlelight last night. I was really excited this morning to look at these as it was kind of hard to see the exact colors in the dim lighting.

Danielle Kroll - More Than This

Even though I wasn’t alive for most of the 80s it’s got to be my favorite decade. Maybe it’s because 80s pop-culture makes me nostalgic for being a kid again. Or maybe it’s because, looking back now, everything is just so goofy and charming; I can’t help but smile. But honestly, all that awesome weirdness aside, the 80s actually did produce some great music. From sappy love ballads to synthpop dancy feel-good jams; the music in the 80s was not lacking in real emotion.

This whole series started one night when I was doodling in my sketchbook, listening to my Huey Lewis and the News radio station. I came to the realization that the page I was working on actually represented the song playing pretty well. After I finished up that piece, I kept going and going…. I tried to think about the intended emotion, the lyrics, and what the song means to me, personally.

I hope that you’ll listen to these songs and think about my interpretations. But also, I hope that you’ll sit and listen to a great 80s playlist and think about what the songs look like to you. It’s fun. I promise!

Stay tuned… more to come!
