One of my favorite ways to discover new (to me) artists is to scroll through the archives of the Google Doodles page. So many amazing creatives have made original artwork, collages and animations for Google’s search home page. This week there was an incredible collage ode to horticulturist and garden designer Gertrude Jekyll made by artist Ben Giles, so I wanted to share some more of Ben’s work here. I can’t get enough of these bold, colorful and deeply layered piece. They feel like a kaleidoscope of print and pattern and they’re the perfect bit of design inspiration to get through the end of the day. Until Monday, here’s wishing you all a safe and happy weekend! xo, Grace
