Finding inspiration in personal talisman and world travel, Carrie creates special adornment from recycled silver. With detailed cutouts and a hint of mystique, these special, one of a kind amulets provide us with feelings of protection, magic and power.
Jim illustrates using the very detailed and time consuming technique of pointillism. He prefers this method because of the depth and contrast it can offer. His illustrations are inspired by a lifetime of commercial and sport fishing experience. While his work represents real species, the personification of the creatures, with their amusing expressions, makes his work super unique. 401H20 offers these original illustrations on apparel as well.
Contrast is a signature of designer and illustrator, Shara Porter. She delights in unexpected pairings between her illustrations and accessory shapes. She handprints original designs on vegan and leather accessories (also designed by her) such as wallets and purses in her New Bedford studio. Her ink is developed with a chemist to ensure permanence. You’ll have so much fun sorting through her cute characters and trendy prints!
