Artsy Accent Pillows

from The Wandering Crayon

I design affordable, accent pillows based on my original art–usually photographic art. Right now I’m mostly designing square throw pillows (18 and 22 inches). But I also have a few rectangular artsy cushions (12 x 20 inches) as well.

Each pillow is available in two kinds of fabric. One kind has a soft, textured feel, like what you’d expect to find in a living room. The other kind of fabric has a smooth, silky feel–great for napping. (I call these “napping pillows.”)

Often, I simplify the original photo art, distilling it down to only two colors. And this simplicity allows for a lot of flexibility. The design can remain in high-contrast black & white. But, of course, any other color combination can be used. So these pillow designs come in a variety of colors. And I often add more color combinations.

The below original was called “Through the Woods.” But when I reduced it to just two colors, I thought it “felt” so different that it needed a new name. So I coined the word “Bewilderness.”

Below is one of my favorite pieces–“Lifeblaze,” from the series Sublimation. For these, I start with something mundane or even ugly. But I modify them to bring out the hidden beauty of their shapes and patterns.

In this one, I see a somewhat abstract, underwater scene. And the name “Lifeblaze” came immediately to mind as I was working on it.

My pillows are unique. That means they’ll need company. So here‘s a good article by MyDomaine (with examples) on how to decorate with throw pillows.
