Girl crush

Illustrations by Mercedes Helnwein

After flicking through the much awaited new issue of Lula magazine I came across the wonderful Austrian born illustrator Mercedes Helnwein. The more I looked into this lady the more besotted I became with her and the darling characters she illustrates. Such a lovely vintage feel to them all, they remind me a little of the 70's "Peter and Jane" books I was taught to read from.
You can also see a short film of Mercedes at work in her incredible studio, just take a rewarding trip to the Lula website.
