Silly and Strange Illustrated and Screenprinted paper and household goods.

Hello from fisk and fern!

Fisk and Fern is a little paper and household goods business out of Austin TX, owned and operated by illustrator Laura Fisk. Her products feature all sorts of funny characters that are hand drawn using an army of pens and pencils. There's always a good dose of silliness in the work and she always hopes to make people chuckle through her characters.

Growing up she always wanted to make greeting cards and be a cartoonist, and after a couple of twists and turns, found her way back to doing just that.

Her work has been featured on Buzzfeed, Daily Candy, Giftware News, Oh So Beautiful Paper, among other wonderful places.

Last updated on July 20, 2017
Hello! All my illustrations are hand drawn and then finished in the computer. I draw everything you see! Every printmaking print is hand-pulled or hand-pressed in Austin TX, printed in limited runs. There is some slight variation from print to print (in color and position sometimes) but that is the beauty and nature of hand done printmaking. All my material from my cards and magnets are made in the US and digitally printed in the USA.
