Trend Alert: Sketch Artists

As an avid art collector, any home decor item that infuses sketches or illustrations wins my heart over almost immediately. Naturally, when I spotted a new crop of talented designers setting their sights on all things artsy, I took note:

From dinnerware to bathroom accessories, it seems everyone's breaking out their pencils and tapping into a new side of creativity.

What do you think of the trend? Too childlike? Perfectly informal? Weigh in below!

    It's like a less expensive way of owning functional art!  I'll be hanging it on my wall, and take them down to use for parties.
