Poday, I am pleased to have up and coming illustrator Phoebe Wahl join the Felt Wee Folk BLOG TOUR. The tour schedule is listed at the bottom of this post, with links to participating blogs. I invite you to follow along. There are reviews of my new book and opportunities to enter Give-aways for copies of Felt Wee Folk: New Adventures.
My regular followers may remember when Phoebe came to visit my studio in 2011, when she was a junior at the Rhode Island School of Design. I wrote a post about it here.
Many of you were so taken with Phoebe’s art that you started following her career, which has since blossomed in several directions. She works in collage and watercolor and also constructs the most beguiling fabric people and animals. She embraces themes of home and family, with a counter-culture and feminist twist that keeps her artwork from becoming conventionally cute. If you haven’t already seen her remarkable work, be prepared to fall in love!
Since graduating from RISD, Phoebe has kept up a busy schedule contributing to Taproot Magazine, which describes itself as “a quarterly magazine celebrating food, farm, family and craft through writing, photography and the arts, both fine and domestic.” And they will be featuring her work even more because she is their cover artist for 2015!
She also sells cards, prints and other items printed with her artwork in her Etsy Shop.
I’m so glad to see that her first children’s book, Sonya’s Chickens (that she both wrote and illustrated) will be published this summer.
