An interview with California illustrator Laura Zarrin was featured on the art blog Empty Easel last week. She had some wonderful advice and some helpful insights into the business for illustrators. It would be well worth your time to read the interview and to look through her portfolio and blog.
Zarrin’s art is whimsical, inspirational, and heartfelt. Her illustrations are the kind that make you feel warm and fuzzy, like the whole world is at peace. She has illustrated several books and greeting cards and has many images available for licensing.
