today i'm featuring the artwork of the fabulous Kelly Bastow, whose blog title on Tumblr (where i found out about her) is... MOOSEKLEENEX. i don't know the meaning behind it, but i'm sure it's important in some way. yes.
anyway, Kelly is an incredible illustrator, something which i discovered after perusing her Tumblr page for a short few minutes (i mean, i perused her page forever, but i discovered that she was brilliant in the first couple minutes), and so i had to share some of my favourite illustrations and cartoons with y'all :)
(oh, and just so you know, all sources can be reached by clicking on the images)
does this not look amazing? heavenly? sublime? all of the above?
i'm familiar with this feeling :)
hey - something i'm actually doing! i'll post about it on Sunday, so check back then to see what i mean ;)
"The string between them grew incredibly long, so long it had to be extended with many other strings tied together: the wind of his yo-yo, the pull from her talking doll, the twine that had fastened his father's diary, the waxy string that had kept her grandmother's pearls around her neck and off the floor, the thread that had separated his great-uncle's childhood quilt from a pile of rags. Contained within everything they shared with one another were the yo-yo, the doll, the diary, the necklace, and the quilt. They had more and more to tell each other, and less and less string."
(from the story of the Sixth Borough in Jonathan Safran Foer's Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close)
if it were, i'd be such a sinner... :|
so do i! ...hee.
familiar with this feeling, too :|
yay for all kinds of different trees!
my daily struggle at varsity, haha...
and now i'm thinking of Brave! :)
oh, hi, cute.
only the story of my life.
oh, and SIMPLE PLEASURES IN LIFE...
alriiiiight, now we're talking.
my favourite thing about this illustration is the owl's unimpressed expression... just bein' honest here.
so, there you have it, folks - i'm positive that you'll agree that Kelly Bastow is a phenomenal artist, and i reckon you should love her art as much as i do!
