I was first introduced to the work of Pratt grad Devon Kelley-Yurdin at my favorite neighborhood coffee shop, Blue Sky Bakery. There, above all the people enjoying their muffins and newspapers is Devon's fantastic work. I love her ink and watercolor pieces - especially this one titled finally. I don't know if it's a Brooklyn-inspired piece, but I can't help but think of brownstone tin ceilings and molding - and maybe some really beautiful wallpaper too. The intricacy of her cutouts, like this one cut and run, are pretty great in person. Check out some more of her work here or head on over to Blue Sky to check it out - and pick up what I promise to be the best muffin you've ever had.
