Illustration: More illustration from Laura Carlin to remind you that you're human

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

How’s this for some brilliant and yet innately human illustration? Since studying at the Royal College of Art Laura has drawn for a whole host of publications including Vogue, The Guardian and The Independent, and is a dab hand with a chunk of clay too, as her ceramics go to show (we featured a couple back in 2011). It’s her illustration that gets us going though. Honing in on a single melancholy gaze or the panic-stricken faces of a whole airplane full of passengers, Laura’s ability to convey a plethora of emotion through the smallest of marks is not to be sniffed at, combining childlike naivety with a sentimental awareness which had led her to this treasure chest full of lovely work. More please Laura!
