inspiration / the work of Carson Ellis

I just recently finished reading Under Wildwood, book two of the Wildwood Chronicles written by Colin Meloy (of The Decemberists) and illustrated by his wife, Carson Ellis.  I was completely smitten with Carson's illustrations in the first book, Wildwood, and Under Wildwood was just as lovely - I had to share some of her work with you!

This is one of my favorite illustrations from Wildwood.  I love the way there's so much detail from the real world mixed with completely whimsical and fantastic subjects in her work.  The images below are all from Under Wildwood (and available to purchase as prints here) :

To find out more about Carson's work, visit her artist website as well as the Wildwood Chronicles website - also, check out this great video/book trailer to get a taste of the books themselves - I highly recommend them!!  Have a lovely weekend!
