Here's a couple of artists / illustrators I enjoy I know it's not anything political or personal but sometimes we get enough of that stuff.
First there's Zina Saunders, an illustrator who I have followed since before I started this blog. Love her politics and eye for the little stuff that makes up the background of our lives.
Next is surrealist illustrator Tara Tucker. Her wildly imaginary animals make me think if there was a great designer he was somewhat dim witted. Also, I'm crazy for kiwis. It's a damn shame it's impossible to keep them as pets.
