Craft Spotlight: The Victory Garden of Tomorrow

Do yourself a favor and check out artist Joe Wirtheim’s line of gorgeous, colorful, and inspiring (in the best, non-cheesy way) prints at The Victory Garden of Tomorrow. Seeking a new and meaningful project, Joe looked to propaganda posters of the past and found inspiration in their calls to action. From there, he created what he calls a “New American Propaganda” encouraging simple, green, and good living. The results? Some of the most beautiful and engaging prints we’ve seen. Check out Joe and The Victory Garden of Tomorrow at the RCF Holiday Markets in Austin, Chicago and San Francisco.
