Square Throw Pillows and Covers on Society6

I have a lot of new linocut-based designs featured on decorative throw pillows on Society6. Here's a photo of some of the square throw pillows I currently have on offer.

They include mountain landscapes and Bay Area icons such as the Golden Gate Bridge and the old Bay Bridge, which connected Oakland and San Francisco before the new span was built. I also have some airport code throw pillows, a camping one, Yosemite and Lake Tahoe designs, and a popular abstract woodcut pattern.

The square throw pillows come in various sizes and you can choose between a pillow cover or one with a pillow insert. And, if you didn't know, I have a Boarding All Rows Pinterest page where I've pinned many of my linocut designs.

New Linoleum Block Print - Port of Oakland & Deconstruction of the Bay Bridge

A couple times a week, I'll spot the 77-year old, double-decked eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge in the distance. A new, seismically safer span has been constructed and they're currently demolishing the old section.

I have a soft spot for the aesthetics of the older one and I think it's fascinating to watch how they orchestrate the take down of such a huge bridge. Before it's all gone, I wanted to make a print. It's a project I've been excited about for a while but it took a lot of sketching and planning for it to come to fruition. This is how the linocut print turned out and it's available in my Etsy store.
