"Picnic" is a print design collaboration between Gravel & Gold and Claire Gallagher for our Spring 2019 collection.
From Claire on Picnic:
In my mind, Picnic was a dance between the romance of the English countryside and the strange detail of that world — buzzing insects, odd vegetables, jagged leaves. The movement of the composition was always at the forefront as well, like a breeze. I went through a lot of iterations for this, from a more scenic composition, to playing with cutout shapes, to finally something more undulating and rhythmic.
Claire Gallagher is a Los Angeles-based illustrator and designer. In 2017, she began Animal Theory as a place to house her illustration, design, and products (among other pursuits). Her playful, folksy work explores the many shapes of life through people and animals. Claire also happens to be a Gravel & Gold gal. You can often find her in the shop helping customers, painting windows or flowerpots, or meticulously keeping things organized. If it's a good day, her dog Biggie will be by her side.
