Artsy Fartsy: Sarah McNeil

I've had my eye on New Zealand based artist Sarah McNeil for a while now. She creates such lovely drawings that are sweet, delicate, and a bit strange. A perfect combination. Her whimsical portraits are full of simple little details that transport a once simple sketch into it's own fantasy world. They exhibit a sort of child like innocence as well, that for some reason makes me want to eat an ice cream cone, ride around on a bicycle without a care, and blast old school Eisley tunes in my ear.

P.s. She has some originals for sale (here), and she also does pet portraits that are simply adorable. I should save up and get one of little Pippin.
