artist discovery: chipmunk cheeks

Standard

LOVING THESE! I happened across this etsy shop via Craftgawker, and a post on the blog Oh the Lovely Things. According to her etsy shop (seen here), Katie Vernon, is an illustrator and florist. It is very apparent that her work as a florist influences her art in a major way. The combination of animals and flowers and bright colors is everything I love. Check these out!

The dinosaur is great. I love the simplistically drawn animals juxtaposed with the intricately drawn flowers. The drawings would not be nearly as special if all of it were drawn with such detail. The flowers wouldn’t stand out so sharply against an animal that held as much detail. The bright, colorful, and detailed flowers pop against the simple line drawings of the animals. Such a creative technique. And so beautiful!
