Penelope Dullaghan...the most recent artist to make me swoon. She began her freelance career as an art director for an ad agency, and now, after taking the leap to start a business of her own, has a crazy successful career creating beautiful illustrations for such publications as The Washington Post, The New York Times, and Oprah Magazine....to name just a few (seriously, the list goes on forever). There was something very familiar about her work, and then I realized why. Fabulous marketing pieces that she'd designed for Starbucks and Target...bingo. Two very close friends of mine I make a point to visit often. There's something so free and exciting about Penelope's work. Her use of color, interesting perspective, and loose aesthetic makes me happy. Nearly an hour disappeared as I flipped through her amazing portfolio. Take a peek!
