Artist Sophie Blackall
Talk about fun, whimsy, and a tiny drop of weird – that’s what I see in Australian artist Sophie Blackall’s work. You really must have a bit of a twisted sense of humor to fully appreciate her art. I find it enjoyable to go through and read all of the captions written on her work because so many of they give me such a chuckle.
Her website has a section that questions if she does anything aside from illustrations. Her response – “…Well I make my children’s lunches most days, and try to keep them in cleanish clothes, and occasionally I put on my hat and spats and seek diversion outdoors. And in the wee hours I paint on old photographs, or stick animal parts on to old dolls”. Too funny!
If you’re interested in purchasing any of her work, she does offer prints for sale in her Etsy shop.
