tuesday's girl: grace lee illustrator / sfgirlbybay

i came across the illustrations of grace lee on pinterest and felt an instant connection to her work. Grace Lee is a freelance illustrator from Sydney, Australia, currently based in Tokyo, Japan. Her work includes illustrations for Anthology, Figaro, and Stella magazines and prior to moving to Tokyo, grace was an editorial designer at Inside Out magazine. she’s also recently illustrated a book, Amazing Babes — a picture book for young and old that celebrates inspirational women from around the world and across generations.

many moons ago, i used to draw and paint in a style similar to grace’s work (although grace’s is a whole lot better!), so i found her drawings really inspiring. why don’t i draw anymore? i’ve found that even my own handwriting, which i take great pride in has disintegrated from typing on a keyboard so much. grace’s work is whimsical and happy, and oh so clever. just the thing i needed to remind me maybe i should pick up the pens again. i hope grace’s work inspires you, too. for more of grace lee’s lovely illustration work, visit her website, and follow her on instagram @midnightgracie. you can also purchases some of her prints at lamington drive.
