For this weeks loving post, I thought I'd share some illustrations from a very special artist (and former middle school art classmate), Kiersten Essenpreis. She is a freelance illustrator/ gallery artist who lives and works from her home studio in Brooklyn, NY. Some of her clients include GQ, The New York Times, LA Weekly, Paper Magazine, Nylon Magazine, and Coach Handbags, to name a few. This gal is such a talent! Her drawings, paintings are so original, fresh, imaginative, and sometimes a bit frightening at the same time. Here are a few of my favorite picks of her pen and ink line drawings which are available for purchase on Etsy. To read more about this artist, check out the interview she did over at Evolve Happy. Congrats on all your continued success Kiersten!
