Liz Mamont is an illustrator based in Los Angeles, and I love, love, LOVE her quiet sense of humor! Her style seems to be rooted in the Victorian era, with illustrations that wouldn’t seem out of place in storybook classics like Jack the Ripper and Sherlock Holmes; and she adds in subtle irony and humor within her pieces. Though there’s a lot of corsets and intricate lines in her drawings, she lets loose with unexpected details – turning what could be a serious piece into something that’s whimsical, on the side of modern.
Check out her patterns for a series called The Little Red Cap (also known as Little Red Riding Hood) and you’ll certainly appreciate what I mean when you see that last pattern in there. Oh, and she also has a little side project called Cat Comics.
I rest my case.
