i’m jealous of gracia & louise

gracia_and_louise2

Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison are the dynamic duo known officially as Gracia & Louise. They are an art team based in Melbourne Australia who make amazing things on paper… books, collages, lithographs, zines,  you name it.

When I found them, I got that feeling that I always hope for ~ a cheek-flushing rush of inspiration followed by a little soul-crushing jealousy. And then, I saw that they had a piece in Could Be Me, a project that I was totally smitten with a few months back, and I knew it was true love.

    i almost sent this link to to you and i’m rather jealous of you for discovering it before i had the wisdom to forward it your way. needless to say, i’m in love with their work. i’d also add that gracia’s witty and intelligent commentary on her blog totally completes the work. i enjoy reading her writing just as much as i do looking at their pieces!

    What a thrill to feature here. Reading both your words and Aimee’s comment coloured our cheeks rose and drew a smile to our lips. We’re delighted you like the things we make and to feature alongside such fine and clever souls.

    I’m so glad! I obviously love your work, and I think that you’re both very fine and clever souls yourselves! Any time that I can colour someone’s cheeks rose and make their lips smile I know I’m spending my time wisely ; )

    I’ve been jealous of them for a couple of years now and let me tell you the jealousy increases with time…

    I have a few of their zines (I collect) – they are delightful! Witty and beautiful. I see you have no zines in your ‘categories’ – noooooooooooo!! I was hoping to pick up some references here!

    Oooh.. good idea! I’m on it.
