We’re not gonna lie—it’s a pretty cool job to look at art all day.

We at s6 are constantly blown away by the intricate, unique, hilarious and mind-blowing pieces of artwork the S6 community uploads, so we decided to put together a round-up of some of our favorites of 2017. Check out which artists we loved discovering this year and which products gave us the opposite of buyer’s remorse:

Fave Artist: Helo Birdie

“She describes her signature style as “Where you would want to be right now” which I think is so true. Beaches, swimming pools… all of her pieces have a whimsical vacation-vibe to them.”

“This piece was featured in a Society6 Art Quarterly this year. I purchased a bamboo print version (which were specially made for the LA launch party). Looks great in my apartment! “

“There’s something magical and very calming with 27mm’s underwater photography. I could spend hours staring at some of these pieces.  ”

“This tropical cosmic leaf pattern looks incredible on a Duffle Bag. Feels like I’m packing for a vacation, even if I’m just going to the gym, which is exactly the vibe I was looking for. “

Fave Artist: Patricia Thomasson

“I love Patricia’s bold, but washed-out Warhol-esque still lifes. Her work feels fresh, but familiar, which is always a winning combination.”

Fave Product: Everyone Is Invited Clear iPhone Case

“Lorien Stern’s little creatures remind me of the Mrs. Grossman’s stickers I used to play with as a kid! Plus, everyone smiles when they see it and what’s better than that?”

Fave Product: Eyes Throw Pillow

“I picked this design for our new house because my girlfriend loves those “Eye” prints and this seemed like a cute take. She ACTUALLY liked it, which is amazing because she always questions my design choices. “
