laurageorge

The creatures and monsters created by Laurageorge are just so cool. I love the sense of humour in her work. The step-by-step instructions for hugging a tree and cooking noodles are so clever.

Laura is an artist and illustrator from Chicago, and she also has a blog, minutiae where we can see more of her work and get to know what this talented lady is up to.


I love these "behind the scenes" pictures. It's always nice getting an idea of how other artists work.

On the move - again

On the exact one year anniversary of me moving from England to Norway, I am moving back to England again. Things do not always turn out the way we plan (in fact, it almost never does!). But what looked like a big, scary step backwards, might just turn into a whole new adventure.

Never mind the global economic crisis - I'm going freelance!

In the three weeks before the Big Move takes place, I will be busy getting my head around all the practical and legal stuff, before I take this big international leap into the great unknown.
Wish me luck!

The gorgeous photo above is a polaroid transfer, photographed by Matt Schwartz of She Hit Pause Studios. I love the vintage colours and feel of these prints. Lots more in his Etsy shop too.
