    Sarah-Louise Barbett: Illustration

Illustration: Wistful, French funny-time from illustrator Sarah-Louise Barbett

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Wow! What a find. We stumbled across Sarah-Louise Barbett’s funny, sweet illustrations on the good ship Flickr, where she has been harvesting her drawings for a few years now. It’s hard to pinpoint the exact flavour of magic present in her work, I think that it’s something to do with the fact that most of her drawings look like doodles she may have made on napkins whilst waiting for a tardy friend. From acid-green stories about dogs, to mechanical pencil drawings of cosy interiors (there’s one of a makeshift den in a living room, and a great one of a parquet floor) Sarah’s got a knack of drawing in a simultaneously stylish and hilarious way of which I am rather envious.
