skirts and their muses
Heard of Skirt.com?
It's great. I receive occasional email announcements from them, but their website is so incredibly fun!!! "All about women..., their work, play families, creativity, style, health and wealth, bodies and souls... skirt! is an attitude"
Also, check out their newest print issue cover by Trisha Krauss...
Her story below is from here.
"Trisha Krauss is an American illustrator based in London. She began her career in New York City where she established herself as an award-winning illustrator. Her work has appeared in many publications, advertising campaigns and books. In New York she was known for her figurative illustrations that were painted on plywood. This style obtained recognition for its sophistication and wit. In London she has expanded stylistically by painting with watercolor and ink, and this offers her more versatility in subject matter. She is also commissioned regularly to hand-paint customized family portraits on Russian dolls and sells them to clients all over the world.
Hector, her beloved Weimaraner and muse, passed away over the summer, and she wants the universe—or at least any one who reads this—to know that he is devastatingly missed. Being without a muse is not amusing...not even a little bit.
You can contact Trisha at firstname.lastname@example.org or see more of her work at trishakrauss.com."
We lost our beloved doggie of 12 years almost a year ago. I feel your pain Trish and wish you some comfort this holiday season.
