Wish List: Kids posters

Every week Esther N McCarthy scouts around for interesting pieces for your interiors. Today she discovers wild designs and posters that are as easy as A, B, C.




Pic 1: We love quality, Irish products here at Wishlist. Woolly Publishing have come up with fun posters that are 100% designed, illustrated and printed in Ireland. The fonts for letters are identical to how children are taught to read and write in school, so you have the educational bit covered too. €4.99 from www.woollypublishing.com or www.facebook.com/KidsPosters.

Pic 2: What can you do in 10 minutes? Have a cup of tea? Hang out the laundry? Well, artist, Yvonne Condon paints a complete portrait in that time. Yvonne is a member of the Glasheen arts studio programme from Cope Foundation, and we adore her work, which is currently on exhibition right here at the Irish Examiner, City Quarter, Lapps Quay, Cork. Drop in and have a look.
