i’m jealous of natalie perkins

Wow. Kudos to the magazine editor who hired this cheeky art director. What? You mean, the drawing/lettering isn’t part of the spread? It’s been painstakingly added, using ink and watercolour, to random pages after the fact? Genius. Pure, hand-cramping, tendinitis-causing genius! Ok, so just for the record, my doodles don’t go much further than a few hearts and the odd twirly tornado, so if I was the editor of a fancy fashion publication, I would definitely hire Australian artist/designer Natalie Perkins to doodle all over my layouts… before they hit the stands!

    Excellent! I agree with Laura that RSS photos would be great. I opened this post because I’m familiar with Ms. Perkins’s work and wanted to see more. Thanks for your excellent posts. Color me jealous of The Jealous Curator.
