We’re honoured to have Carson Ellis joining us for this week’s It’s Not Us. Carson is one of the most distinctive American illustrative voices today, mixing folk art, fantasy and skewed naturalism. You might also know her as the lady behind the artwork of the Decemberists, which is where her submission comes from.
‘I was reluctant to choose a Decemberists poster for my submission because I do do other stuff, but this is one of my favourite drawings of the past month. For the first time since I starting illustrating, I experimented with a new, finer pen nib which was exciting, in a nerdy way. Also very nerdy was the amount of time I spent looking at medieval typography.’
