illustration file; Sarah McNeil

Sarah McNeil is very talented New Zealand-based artists and illustrator, whose work has been featured in Magazines like Chikismiqui, Blanket and Frankie. Her illustrated girls are not some super-heroines that jump off the sky or are doing something turbulent, they are tender creatures, which are very often friends with animals so they will whisper to butterfly or will protect a bird. Of course they are all dressed very well and have the sweetest collars and dresses. And wild creatures, even those that we consider of as dangerous, with Sarah’s pencil look very friendly, fragile and happy. Unlike the most illustrations of animals today, especially in children books where they often look like aliens,  this pretty illustrated world is something completely different. You can purchase prints, original illustrations, postcards, stickers and lots of more from her Etsy shop! And please pay attention to names! Pretty interesting creature is this Sarah McNeil. Don’t you agree?
