Dark and hauntingly beautiful, I found myself drawn to these illustrations because I couldn't shake the feeling that this imagery was familiar--albeit the familiarity was attached to vivid dreams and Salvia. Like myself, I am assuming the artist grew up in a world of old-fashioned cartoons, stuffed animals and other achingly cute things, but along the way was permanently rattled by the viciousness and brutality of the world, and both of those aspects emerge in her art.
