Gorgeous, beautiful work by Lindsey Carr, an artist and toy maker based in Scotland.

Her watercolor pieces are breathtaking – just look at those details in there! I also love how she’s inspired by nature, incorporating plants and animals into her pieces. Each one tells a story, and best of all, each element is conversing with each other within her pieces.

Today I’m a little distracted by the comics of Lucy Knisley – published intermittently every two weeks or so, they chronicle the life and thoughts of Chicago-based Lucy who is an illustrator, comic artist and author.

Now I count my Calvin and Hobbes book collection as one of my most treasured possessions, and I warmed up to her style immediately. There’s something about how she articulates her thought processes through panels that makes me identify with her. Also, she has mad skills — look at all those drawing of people!

I almost shed a tear when I read about her break up and here’s a personal favorite, It gets better. Also, pick up one of her books over at her shop!

Karolin Felix

Hello there everyone! You have to forgive me for my abrupt absence last week — I had to go out of town for some personal matters and didn’t quite have the time to prepare something to tide you all over the weekend.

So let’s start off the week with more illustration loveliness shall we? Today I’m enamored by the transformation of one Bearded Lady character from Karolin Felix’s arsenal of beauties into a 3D toy. Behold: The Bearded Lady giclee print, and now, a collectible folk art doll! And of course, no folk art doll is complete without friends — some of which you can win by finding out how over here.
