My friend posted this illustration on her blog filly + foal because it looked so much like her daughter and herself. I agree. It's such a beautiful illustration and its slightly uncanny nature to the resemblance of living people I know, I couldn't help but to post it too.
Anna Emilia is an illustrator from Finland and after briefly being introduced, I am already a big admirer of her work. I love the colour palette she uses and her sense of whimsy. As I was looking through her work I recognized one of her illustrations that was recently published in the Kinfolk Magazine.
I always have this epiphany moment when I can make a connection to an artist.

My Friend Tanya moved to Vancouver Island in August and left me with a giant tomato plant. It looked like a monster sprawled out across my patio with an explosion of green tomatoes. I pruned it up, tied the stems and hoped for the best....
Now I am enjoying the fruits of her labour. It's been a good season nourishing my family with life from the garden.
Try shoving a baby car seat into this...
Pretty darn hilarious if you ask me. What kind of mom drives this around? A mom whose dodge caravan broke down and is left with her 20 something brother-in-law's vehicle. It's an awkward dance getting in and out with Georgia. Won't the boys at Banyan's preschool be impressed when I go to pick him up later?
