Eleanor DavisI’ve got a crush on Eleanor Davis‘ work ever since I found out about her a few years ago through the folks at Fantagraphics. I was surprised that I never got to showing her work on the blog, so I thought I’d put an end to that nonsense today. The images here are some of her recent work which you can see on her website.

She’s a cartoonist and illustrator who regularly posts about her work (these little comic shorts are amazing) so there’s always new things to discover. What I love about her is how her illustrations are framed – really interesting perspectives that when combined with her style (the control she has over watercolor is magical) creates illustrations that really draw you in to see what’s happening. I also noticed that she has a lot of illustrations and sketches of people warmly embracing – kissing, hugging, etc., – a playground of intertwining limbs (which is marvelous really, there’s not enough love going around!) Her work also makes me wonder: What’s her story, What’s his story. What’s their story. What is all this?

See more of her work on her website, and also make sure to visit her brilliant sketchblog.

  1. Yeah! I’ve been following (creepin’ on) Eleanor’s work since I was a senior in high school. It’s true, her stuff does exude a wonderful intimacy. Great to see her on here!

  2. I’m new here, but I’m really enjoying your posts. They really stand out among the hundreds of other blogs and newsletters my friends and colleagues expect me to read! Keep up the good work.
