My favorite artists are those who story-hunt, their periscopes quietly rotating from the cracks of distant (and not so distant) sidewalks. Over the next few months I'll be featuring some of my favorite new (and old) blogs/artists/story hunters. This week? Sophie Blackall, artist, illustrator, blogger, mother, stranger I wish I knew.
Who: Sophie Blackall, Artist & Illustrator
Why: I've been following Sophie's blog for over a year now, purchased her prints for loved-ones and am continually blown away by the magic of her work. Sophie's illustrations are whimsical, heartbreaking, hopeful. Alive and kicking, leaning, limping.
Support: Shop Sophie's Etsy shop, here. Her books (illustrations) are available here, including this one by Aldous Huxley.
Thank you, Sophie.
