Artist Statement: Tiny Beasts and the new addition to True Colors, the Tiny Coordinates are designed interdependently but definitely intended to work together. Playing with a smaller scale the Tiny Beast collection focuses on backyard animals and what they might be up to when we are not looking. In “One Man’s Trash” tiny raccoons go searching for treasure in the garbage cans. There are so many little treasures to find in this print including soda cans, fish bones, banana peels, wish bones and one raccoon desperately clutching the greatest treasure of all... a half-eaten apple core. Yum! In “Deer John” a flowering antlered, polka dotted Deer is camouflaged among the flora nibbling on grass and berries. In “Bear With Me” a filigreed Honey Bear is poised under a dripping bee hive hoping to catch some of that liquid gold. He is surrounded by striped Honey Bees busily conjuring his favorite snack. “Who’s Your Dandy” finds that some lovable hedgehogs have become a part of the landscape and transformed into living dandelions, their seeds blowing away in the windy field of wildflowers. In “Oh Nuts!” some Technicolor squirrels are preparing for the coming winter and collecting as many striped acorns as they can gather. In “Out foxed” several energetic foxes are leaping away in an effort to hide amongst the blooms and escape capture from their latest prank. Finally, the “Painted Ladies” print is an ombred wash of color of layered polka dots. Almost every print references a dot of a stripe to stay connected to the tiny coordinates of the new True Colors additions Tiny Dots and Tiny Stripes. The Tiny Stripes and Tiny Dots are an evolution of the Poms and Tent Stripe prints that started Tula Pink’s True Colors. These prints are designed to be incredibly useful as an addition to any fabric collection designed by Tula Pink or used completely on their own as an inspired spectrum of color. These prints and colors will fit seamlessly into the existing True Colors and will feature heavily in Future Tula Pink print collections to fill in with color and highlight the more heavily illustrated core collections. Collection prints will come and go but True Colors is forever and for everyone.
