Show & Tell : Presto Bingo

Showandtell_updated

I am so excited to share today's Show & Tell with you because it comes from a local artist/blogger/design studio. I originally met Joyce when I stumbled upon her wonderful blog, KidBaltimore, which highlights her trips and travels around Baltimore with her children. She gives great insights into all kinds of activities, museums, events and points of interest in our area, as well as other fun and helpful projects and ideas. Right now her husband Dave is working plans for a treehouse and Joyce shares a recipe for a natural weed killer. Her blog also happens to have what is probably my favorite blog banner of all the blogs I read. 🙂

Not only does Joyce write at KidBaltimore, she and her husband run the Baltimore design studio SpurDesign . AND, they have a wonderful line of modern art prints for children in their shop Presto Bingo.

I asked Joyce to share a bit about Presto Bingo :

My husband, Dave Plunkert, and I have co-owned Spur Design, a Baltimore based design studio, since 1995. We work in a renovated industrial building that gives us enough room for messy art projects. Our three kids (ages 10, 4 and 4) frequently accompany us to work, which can be a little challenging, but is always inspiring.

Dave and I have wanted to create more artwork for kids for a long time, and are currently pursuing some children's book ideas. PrestoBingo, our line of modern art prints, was inspired by our kids, and our love of modern design.  We wanted to create a line of artwork that both kids and grownups could enjoy. Dave's robots grew out of his childhood fascination with Japanese toy robots, and is mixed with his appreciation for Futurism. His alien series is more loose and whimsical and was drawn with bleach and black ink on colored paper. My animal series was no doubt influenced by our move out to the country, but I have always loved spending time outside playing in the dirt. They are digital collages, with hand painted and drawn elements mixed in. I also use snippets from nature, like leaf or bark textures to give them a more tactile quality.

All of the illustrations are reproduced on 100% cotton paper and are limited editions.

Joyce would like to offer one mommycoddle reader a matted, limited edition print from their PrestoBingo shop! So take a few moments to head over to Presto Bingo and look around. Let us know what catches your eye. Leave a comment, and I'll announce the random winner on Monday.

Thank you Joyce and Dave!

Happy Weekend, friends.

  1. ADORABLE!! I love them Oh Hoppy Day is definitely my favorite, hands down but any of them would have a place in my home with our two girls and the boy that is on his way.

  2. Scheduled to me a new step-grandmommy come November. We know it’s a boy! I love, love, LOVE the “Whooo is there” print!!! So darn cute.

  3. I love the Whooo is there and the Flutterby. My girls just decided to share a room and we’re decorating it with a meadow theme. Either print would look adorable in there! Thanks for offering such a great contest!

  4. “My Girl” is a librarian at, and graduate of, Bryn Mawr College. The owl is their thing. I think she needs a Who’s There? for her office! She too is an artist and admires all things handmade. I still love to tickle the child in her.

  5. Oh all of them are so cute…. How would you choose?… Oh, Hoppy Day would probably have to be it but then those puppies….

  6. I love the animal prints… especially Whoooo is There and Bye Bye Birdie. I just found out that I’m expecting, and I think either print would look perfect in the new nursery! Thanks for introducing such a great company to your readers.

  7. Their work has a very retro vibe — I LOVE it!! My favorite print is the Dog dog dog print. My daughter loves dogs. Made me smile when I saw it. 🙂

  8. All the prints are great, but our favorite is the butterfly print (my daughter has a butterfly theme in her bedroom)!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  9. “whoo is there” is wonderful. We are on an owl kick in our house. Or ‘Eddy’ the robot for a friend who is hoping to be expecting (a baby).

  10. Well, I let my little guy look at the options, and he selected “oh hoppy day” and “gus the robot” as the two that he likes the most. I really love the texture in “whooo is there.” Thanks for sharing this blog – it is new to me!

  11. Ooohh, so hard to pick just one favorite. Flutterby would fit in perfectly with my daughter’s room. Also love Whooooo is there. Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. Oh, Dandy Lion would have to be my favorite for my 5-year-old budding herbalist. All of them were lovely though! Cute shop.

  13. I personally love the owls, but my 2 year old son would adore “Oh Hoppy Day”. He’s so into fishing right now and loves frogs. Also, he just got his own room so that would look perfect on those bare walls! 🙂

  14. All the prints are absolutely awesome, so this was a very tough decision to make. Both Whooo Is There? and Dandy Lion kept drawing my eye, but I think I’ve decided to go with the owls just because they fit our family room decor better.

  15. Wow! So hard to choose just one. . .

    But I do think that ” Oh Hoppy Day” would be just right for my little guy. I love that it is the kind of picture where it is so easy to tell a story about it.

    Will definitely be crossing my fingers. Thanks for the chance and for introducing us to another small artist.
