Carson Ellis

You’ve probably seen the work of Carson Ellis on street posts and at record stores everywhere, as she has been the artist representing The Decemberists for the past several years. Her illustration has that magical quality of making you want to pick up a pencil and draw something beautiful, even if you have no drawing ability whatsoever. Her charming work interestingly seems to capture the greys and faded quality of her surroundings in Portland, giving everything a calm and quiet tone. Carson has just recently released a book called “Wildwood Chronicles” with Colin Meloy (of the Decemberists), so be sure to pick that up!

Huge fan of his illustrations!

Excuse me, her I mean.

Looking at this set of illustrations made me want to find out more about Carson Ellis. There’s an almost child-like quality to the drawings that also have a more sinister undertone. I really love how the illustrations are clearly very strongly influenced by her surroundings and the time of year they are produced in.
