One of our Good Folk, Lauren Nassef, now has a shop on her site where she’s selling each of her daily drawings. If ya don’t know, now ya know. The biggest problem I have is choosing which are my favorites, they’re all so good!


Lauren is a freelance illustrator living in Chicago. She graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2001. Her work is whimsical, brilliant and beautiful. Lauren’s illustrations have graced the covers of award-winning Univ. of Chicago Press books as well as an article for the NY Times.


There must be something in the water out Mid-West that produces some amazing talent, like Micah Lidberg. Micah’s work is solid! Thanks to Leah for sending me this!

Alberto Seveso

Alberto Seveso is a graphic designer and illustrator based in Italy. His illustrations of Kelly Slater for an editorial piece are absolutely mind-blowing. Combining illustration and photography effectively is quite difficult, but Alberto makes this stuff look effortless.

Frank Chimero

Frank Chimero is a super-cool designer and illustrator based in Missouri. His self-initiated project titled The States is a pretty clever attempt to display each state in illustrated form. Check out his work, you’ll love it.
