ashley g cuteness

i've been meaning to photograph & share these cute artworks for ages.. these are the first items i bought from etsy early last year and represent the real start of my love affair with online shopping.  not a bad place to start hey? i really must frame them and get them up on display.. probably in mirka's bedroom me thinks. anyway, they remind me quite a lot of christina gordon's art & a little of ghost patrol's work. (read lucy's interview on the design files with ghost patrol here). they are actually by ashley g, an awesome american artist who says;

"I have loved arts, crafts, creatures, and nature my entire life. I enjoy focusing on portraiture and capturing a brief moment in time. My artwork tends to be simple, but with a sophisticated or stark color palette. I believe great emotion can be conveyed in a simple gesture or look. The characters I create, whether monsters or little girls, are simple, humorous, empathetic, and a little bit pathetic."

you can read more here if you want. ashley also has a website called ashley g and drew & blog called kitty genius. sweet.

update: i forgot to say that i think the little guy in a cape is my favourite.. it's called 'even superheroes need a break'.
