I found the most amazing artist online recently. When I saw her work, I think my eyes widened. Her name is Tamar Mogendorff and she creates all these beautiful animals by hand, with amazing details. They are so whimsical and pretty, but the messy, handmade look gives them a cool factor as well. I just love that her mushrooms and pearls have eyes.
Swans and mushrooms and birds and deer--I couldn't have picked better subjects myself. Take a look at her shop here.
