illustration - kate pugsley

Mermaids, old ladies, lovers, swimmers, and cast aways, all of them blushing...
Currently loving these illustrations by Kate Pugsley.  She claims inspiration from
travel, whether it's a far trip or simply walking through her home city of Chicago.
She roams, looking for flashes of shapes, color combinations, plants, structures,
faces.  These little fragments fuel her creativity.  We should all take note, try to
remain as open to the world as she is...

As a matter of fact, anything that you want to use too quickly is suspect.  You
need time... That's the way it works.  You collect all these things without
knowing really what, if anything, you're going to do with them - old rags and
scraps.  - E.L. Doctorow
