spontaneous adventures and positive outlooks...

BUBBY AND BEAN is a line of illustrations, greeting cards, and other intriguing trinkets created by Chicago designer Melissa Baswell Williams. Our work is inspired by spontaneous adventures, positive outlooks, and the memory of Bubby, a rather extraordinary old dog.

Each card and piece of art is individually printed, cut, finished, and packaged by hand in our Chicago area studio. Our work is crafted using a sustainable approach, and special care is taken to use eco-conscious materials whenever possible.

Melissa's work has been shown at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as in publications including Apartment Therapy, Lucky Magazine, Design*Sponge, Women’s Wear Daily, Boho Magazine, Business Week, Discovery Channel's TreeHugger.com, Pottery Barn's official blog, Pinterest's official blog, and others.

    I make greeting cards and art prints inspired by positive messages. I also run the Bubby and Bean blog, and design clothing for the eco-fashion company, Mountains of the Moon. I like travel, live music, dogs, and tacos. Especially tacos.

Thank you for visiting BUBBY & BEAN!

I have found great bliss in creating this little line of art and paper goods, which features greeting cards and art prints inspired by positive messages and the memory of a rather extraordinary old dog named “Bubby.” Bubby & Bean art is lovingly crafted using a sustainable approach, and special care is taken to use eco-friendly and recycled materials as much as possible.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions!
