Holiday Peach Picks: Rob Wilson

One of my favorite things about Instagram is being able to get a sneak peak into the lives of artists I admire....like designer and illustrator, Rob Wilson of Dallas, Texas. He draws the most ingenious and aesthetically pleasing things and as his style feels a bit mid century and Scandinavian to me, I love him all the more. If you follow Rob, you know he has a cute dog, Maisie, who is often featured in his Instagram posts. So when I asked Rob to share his Peach Picks for this season, he happily did so. And happily for the rest of us, his picks are....

all about dogs. 

1. Hair of the Dog Flask, $24. What can I say? It's the holidays and we all need extra gulps of Christmas cheer. 

2. Chewed, $25. My dog Maisie and I have mourned many chewed up toys and this book reminds me of many of them. 

3. White Dog sweatshirt, $145. Designer Nicole Musselman's sly wit shines through in this bold, stylish sweater. 

4. Eleonor Bostrom ceramics, from $24. We are 1976 is one of my favorite stores in Dallas- you never know what owners Vynsie, Julie and Derek have found on their world travels. These quirky ceramic dogs from Eleonor Bostrom in Sweden caught my attention. They're almost like two dimensional scribbles come to life. (available in store only at We are 1976

5. Throne Dogs print, from $150. Juliette Borda is one of my favorite illustrators. I see her charming work regularly in the New York Times Style section. 

6. Dog luggage, $40. I definitely would've wanted this as a kid. Instead, I had a giant and furry cat head overnight bag. 

7. Letterpress card, $5. The handsome craftsmanship of this letterpress stationery, all made in Dallas, is a signature of designer, Lily Smith + Kirkley.  

8. Maison de Pawz dog treats, from $5. These dog treats are lovingly made in New York. And they have the cutest mascot, Tyler, whose adventures I follow on Instagram. 

9. Pets Behaving Badly prints, $150. I recently created this boxed set of 10 risograph prints called "Pets Behaving Badly" for Erin Cluley's gallery. It's a limited edition of 50 sets, printed by Constance Studio in New Orleans. The mixed media illustrations are drawn from my personal experiences of having cats and dogs. (I won't tell you the outcome of the cat meeting my parakeet)

Silas Tom @ Society 6

Clever is the first word that pops into my head when I see a Rob Wilson creation. All of his design work is bold, playful and without fail, clever. Always. Which is why you need to follow his Instagram account if you're not already. It's fun to see what his ingenious mind thinks up next...

I've been following his stationery line for a couple years but now it's nice to see many of his illustrations picked up by Society 6. There, you can purchase his work, now feartured on clocks, totes, canvases, shirts and pillows. 

I'm personally loving the clocks as a perfect way to add something bold into your space. Above is Hounds Tooth + Teal and Mister Hipster.

As I'm looking forward to spring and still wondering why I don't live closer to the equator, Rob's work offers that extra dose of sunshine I need- especially now, as Atlanta and much of the South deals with another freezing cold week. Warm up, here

Rob Wilson 

Over the winter holiday, you may remember a Texas artist I featured named Rob Wilson. His incredible images are graphic and bold with a dose of good humor and forever memorable. He's one of my favorite artists and the best part is, his library of goods just keeps getting better and better...

The Shop at Renee Rhyner & Co., based in Dallas, Texas, carries many of Rob's illustrations that are in large, fine art canvas form. He also offers his original images in notecards which run the gamut from wedding and birthday to pets, love, babies, Texas icons and 'fun.' 

Rob's work is instantly recognizable and as far as I can tell, instantly likeable. He's got a knack for great design that draws you in and leaves you lingering for a moment or two- It makes me wonder what his home looks like?? 

For more about Rob, check out his site here, or find his large format prints at the Renee Rhyner shop here. Happy weekend...

Silas Tom Paper Goods

I received an email recently from a graphic artist in Texas. If I had interest, he wanted to share his new holiday cards with Sweet Peach. After seeing Scarf Face, above, and his incredible, modern style...well, I was quickly a fan and devout admirer. His name is Rob Wilson. 

In the business for 22 years, working with clients such as AT&T, American Airlines and Nokia, Rob is an established and well respected designer. He started creating these drawings in his spare time and after much fanfare, decided to share them with the rest of us. 

As Rob shares, "Each of the illustrations are infused with my sense of humor, experiences from my travels and my own sense of design." This graphically pleasing and endearing card is named Present Tense.

Rob has a few Hanukkah selections as well. It's amazing how a great artist can instantly set a mood and bring us into their world. I can connect with the emotions of the scene...the comforts of home and the holiday season ring clear. 


This series, with the added gold color, is inspired from Rob's travels to Germany. Rob, "For several years, I traveled to Germany and Austria a few weeks prior to Christmas. I enjoyed the bitterly cold weather, the hot gluhwein and a great sense of cheer as I wandered through the many Christmas markets." 

What I like most about Rob's cards is how the more you stare, the more you see. My mind fills with mini scenes and storylines. Rob offers boxed sets of all his holiday thoughts just in time for the holidays. I suggest you check them out- along with his line of cards for birthdays, weddings and such. He's a gem, which makes me all the more grateful that he found Sweet Peach...
