At The Land of Nod, we believe that every person in the world should have a pirate-themed treasure box and a pillow shaped like a cloud. It’s a good thing we teamed up with artist Allison Cole, or else we would’ve been out of luck. Setting up shop in a small studio in her Providence, Rhode Island bungalow, Allison Cole works as a freelance illustrator for clients nationwide. Her playful artistic style can be found on anything from art prints to tote bags to greeting cards. When we opened up our New York City toy shop over the holidays, Allison even provided us with an over-sized version of her popular cloud pillow to display in the window.
