lovely little find

illustrator + photographer + blogger extraordinaire
Almost a year ago I stumbled upon the adorable and quirky illustrations of Nan Lawson and I was immediately smitten with her sweet characters. I quickly enlisted Nan to do one of her custom portraits as a birthday gift to my boyfriend.  (Please note Nan is not currently taking new portrait orders) Nan was a complete pleasure to work with. She really took the time to listen to me explain myself and my boyfriend, so she could get the portrait just right. The portrait turned out better than I could have hoped, and is something I will always cherish.

Since then I have followed her work and continue to be impressed. (Okay maybe I'm biased due to her Harry Potter work) Her illustrations would be the perfect accent in a child's room, the perfect gift for that special someone, or a cute card, the possibilities are endless. 
And for all the photography fans out there, check out her work HERE.
She also has a collection of illustrations that ALL proceeds go to the Japanese Relief Efforts. What could be better than lending a helping hand and getting something cute in return?
