In 2007 the illustrator, whose client list includes The Washington Post, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Harper’s, Better Homes and Gardens, Urban Outfitters, Penguin Books and O magazine, was going through what she describes as "a creative funk." Her photographer husband suggested that she work on a painting of his favorite chair, an Eames RAR. What ultimately resulted was a series of paintings that became a set of flash cards called the Modern Design Deck.
Renninger now makes single prints of the original designs available in her Etsy store pleasebestill. She also sells a poster of the 30 original illustrations A-Z, as well as a limited edition, numbered and signed box set of the Modern Design Deck flash cards, which is the birthday gift I'm buying for myself this month when I celebrate turning 65. That's all the excuse I need to have this box of beauties on a side table in my living room.
