Blogger Portrait: Caitlin Shearer

the bewitching Caitlin S. 

Caitlin Shearer is an Australian artist whose work is full of romantically pretty things... mermaids, vintage starlets and dresses, flowers, night skies. I'm in love with her pencil and watercolor paintings. Her girls (and boys) are beauties, delicately drawn but striking in style. 

Her style and techniques are so individual; I especially like some of her recent work incorporating real pressed flowers (other paintings include embellishments like glitter and pearlescent paint). 

Besides being a favorite artist of mine, she is also quite fashionable and has been another of my favorite contributers to the What I Wore Today (Drawings Only) group on flickr. It seems she is just like a living version of one of her lovely painted girls.

Blogger Portrait: Nancy Zhang of The Sea of Fertility

the talented Nancy Z.

This week's portrait is Xiaoxi (Nancy) Zhang of The Sea of Fertility, a fashion and illustration blog. I absolutely adore her style - both in drawing and in wardrobe! 

Nancy Z. illustrates people whose styles inspire her. Her drawings have a loose, sketchy watercolor feel to them, as if she made them right on the spot. Her use of pattern, color, and movement make each one much more than just a drawing, giving more of a feel for the wearer's own personality and presence. 

Her own wardrobe has the same playful feeling as her illustrations; she is adventurous in her style and unafraid to express herself! She makes the most interesting outfits look effortless. Nancy has an eye not only for what is beautiful, but for what is uniquely beautiful. Most inspiring!

Blogger Portrait: San Smith

the adorable San Smith
From her website
"San Smith is a professional Illustrator residing in Atlanta, Georgia. Her style is inspired by her interest in animation, comic books and vintage toys. When San isn't drawing, she enjoys hula hooping, riding bicycles, photography and chasing her chihuahua around the house. Her influences include Jamie Hernandez, Dan DeCarlo, Tara McPherson and Bruce Timm." 


I only recently found San's blog, but she's quickly become a favorite! It's fun and uplifting and never fails to make me smile. Aside from her art, San shares book/tv/music recommendations, links to neat things, cute outfits, and tutorials - she even does live drawing demos here on Ustream. 

She's also one of my favorite contributors to the What I Wore Today (Drawings Only) group. And she is just as cute and colorful as her drawings are!

Kater of All This Happiness

Blogger Portrait: Kaitlin of All This Happiness

my rendition of the lovely Kater

Kaitlin Resler is the author of All This Happiness, a style blog full of pretty things like vintage dresses, red lipstick, stripes, cats, and movie-inspired fashion.

What I like about Kaitlin's blog is that it doesn't seem "presented". It's less serious fashion stuff, a little more quirky and friendly; it reads like a letter (or an email) from a friend. She sometimes includes thoughts on books and movies and characters that inspire her (I can particularly identify with her love for everyone's favorite wizard werewolf, Remus Lupin...), photos of delicious-looking sweets from the bakery where she works, the cats she finds along the way, and other fun things.

Plus she's gorgeous! And has excellent style.
