Swap Team

LucyMouse2LucyMouse1I paint small, y'all. It's a helpful skill if you want to work on a project in a coffee shop, or conserve paper, or ensure you'll never have a profitable gallery show. But if I'm a micro artist, Lucy Eldridge is nano. She can paint a battleship the size of a penny. A stock of brandy you can fit in a bottle cap. A cat you can inhale. All while still exuding a mammoth amount of charm, energy and originality.

I came across Lucy's work a couple of years ago on the illustration website Pikaland and was so inspired by what I saw I sent her a super gushy fan email. Tons of emails and @ tweets later, I'm happy to count her as a friend and my personal DJ (homegirl also knows a thing or two about good music).

But I'm still a gushy fan, so I leapt at the chance to do an art swap with her a couple months back. I sent Lucy the anxious mice above, and in return got this foxy cab caller and skateboarding dinosaur.LucyFoxLucyDino

I love them so.
