draw by laurageorge
As anticipated in the last post, I'm glad to introduce you for this third issue of my favorite illustrators series the amazing work of Laura George! She is a very talented artist-illustrator based in Chicago, and I've found her some time ago on etsy, where she has a wonderful shop filled with delightful draws.
What I like in her illustrations is her ability in showing daily life under a different perspective, assigning a big value to each little aspect and each little emotion that too often we take for granted. And the postcard of her that I took decision to show here above, called "things I'm thankful for", expresses very well this attitude: the sun, trees, trips, music, animals, foods, everything could be special if fully enjoyed. Thank to a sweet and simple style, she's able to enclose in this card everything we need to be truly happy.
In order to express my admiration for her design, I wanted to turn her "hug" in a hand carved rubber stamp... here's the result, I hope you like it!
