I have been a fan of Laura Shallcrass’s work for some time now. I love the tiny, intricate detail of her illustrations.
I also had a pleasure of meeting her in Queenstown a few weeks back. She is as beautiful and friendly as her work.
We talked a bit and she passed on a few secrets of the trade, and just inspired me.
Take a look at her site here : http://laurashallcrass.co.nz/
The next day or two I started the below pattern which is made out of hundreds of tiny loops. Very similar to what Laura uses in her work.
If you visit my Facebook page you can see some photos of this work in progress.
