Illustrators : Nan Lawson

Salut mes amis !

As previously stated on other posts I absolutely love illustrations and many others art forms . Recently I stumbled on an illustrator named ‘Nan Lawson’ and being fascinated on her work  I thought it best to share her talent with you too . Enjoy :

About Lawson : ” Nan Lawson is an artist and Illustrator living and working in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles. There, she lives with her husband and two chubby cats while she daydreams about the perfect pair of glasses and her next cup of coffee. Nan is known for her pop culture portraits and distinct style and use of color. She also works freelance jobs illustrating book covers, magazine articles or creating logos, and she takes part in several group gallery shows on a monthly basis. She draws quirky and nerdy things and characters, which are often inspired by hipsters, cult television shows, and desserts. ” – Lawson’s website

Salut mes amis !

As you already know I am obsessed with anything Illustrated ; what is better than the people who illustrate them. I have been a fan of Hayden Williams’ work for many years and I have even written a blog post about him on my old blog. He is absolutely amazing and he is blowing up right now compared to when I first discovered him. Ahh all his illustrations are full of talent and there is always a theme to them. My current favourites are the Bratz series and the Disney princesses series , take a look :
