i’m jealous of souther salazar







I want to live here. Yep, right here, smack-dab in the middle of the weird & beautiful world of  Portland based artist Souther Salazar. These are all 5″x5″ drawings… well, drawings that happen to be created using watercolor paint, and just a touch of collage thrown in for good measure. If I did live here I’d always remember that guy this way. Plus, I’d have a tiny pet goat, a dinosaur that lived next door, and i would totally help my neighbor find his dog  ♥

{…thanks to Frances Marin for pointing me to Souther’s work}

    I had the pleasure of meeting Souther and his wife Monica when they were touring with the Trading Tortoise!

    We all ate dinner and then introduced him to lightning bugs!

    It reminds me a bit of Aaron Troyer’s work. Quite lovely!
