wet paint illustrations by helen lang

Há algum tempo atrás eu recebi um e-mail da ilustradora Helen Lang me pedindo para divulgar seu trabalho aqui no blog e fiquei surpresa ao me deparar com seus lindos desenhos então como prometido, faço questão de compartilhar com vocês o talento desta artista e sua biografia:

Originally from Devon, Madamesange (aka Helen Lang) now lives and works in SW London. She first came to the City after graduating in Illustration in 1999 and has since worked extensively in the stationery, print and poster industry. Helen has always been creative and was drawn towards illustration as it allows her to inject her slightly obscure sense of humour into her designs. She works from a rather lovely studio (from which she can witness squirrel fights in the park) and spends her time developing her decorative line and lettering styles. 

Working in a variety of media and materials, Helen’s many influences include Tony Hart, Charles Harper, Jim Flora and Rolf Harris as well as children's’ illustrators Graham Oakley & Joseph Wright. Madamesange is an active participant of The East End Arts club, exhibiting regularly throughout London and is also represented by the very lovely creative agency, Illustration Ltd.

She's also selling limited editions of her work through her website and also through exclusively chosen stores such as Elphicks, a store on Columbia Road in London. Her Facebook page is open to all fans, you're more than welcome :)

cute song of the day

Faz tempo que ouço Great Lake Swimmers e nunca enjoei. Amo para todo o sempre. Eu gosto muito desse clipe, não sei porquê. É simples e meio esquisito, acho que me imagino ali sentada na beira da água ouvindo essa música e combina. Parece um lugarzinho que fica perto da casa da minha mãe, dá um certo conforto.
