etsy: sophie blackall

Sophie Blackall has the most adorable paintings/prints. some of them are quirky, some of them are beautiful, but all of them are original and lovable. i love words and letters combined with pictures (a type of multimedia, if you will) and Blackall has it mastered. i realize "quirky" things are really popular right now, and taking that into account, i don't get a fad feeling at all when i browse through the artwork with titles like "Hairy Bearded Swimmer" and "We Shared a Bear Suit." once i've finally gotten around to re-doing my room i plan on putting at least one of her prints on my wall. Blackall's work just evokes such a cozy feeling. it gives me warm fuzzies! and i'm a big fan of warm fuzzies.

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
