Artist I Love: Sophie Blackall

When I first moved to New York, I was delighted and comforted to step onto the subway and see my friend Beatrice Coron's beautiful papercut poster above window after window on trains all over the city.  It made New York seem smaller and more welcoming to see my friend's artwork everywhere I went.  Since then, a new favorite has started popping up.   Have you seen Sophie Blackall's beautiful new poster?   I've spent entire rides wondering about these characters, and was so excited to see this video portrait of Sophie last night.  Check it out!

  1. Thank you for posting this! I love Sophie Blackall's drawings and clearly I need to pay some attention to the Etsy blog (which I gave no attention).

    My favorite bit "I like drawing animals, but I'm ashamed to say I almost always feel like putting clothes on them." hee hee
