Pencils!

I've recently listed a very cute vintage brooch on my etsy store, it is a brooch made from mini wooden pencils! They are rainbow colours and the brooch looks great pinned to a jacket lapel, or even a sweater. It is a great gift for people who love art and drawing!


Whilst we're on the subject of illustration and art, here are a few pics from my favourite painter/illustrator, Gil Elvgren. He was a famous pin-up artist, and a very talented illustrator.  All the girls look so glam and have the best clothes and hair! Below are some of my favourite artworks.

Sliding down the banister - always wanted to do this!

I love Gil Elvgren! Who's your favourite artist/illustrator?
