ARTIST FEACHAAA: SARAH SILVERMAN

Lost in Translation, Mean Girls and a back catalogue of Wes Anderson – just some of the reasons this artist first caught my eye…

Sarah Silverman, a New York-based sketcher under the name of Sarah Leoraa, possibly for obvious reasons, not only has exquisite taste in films, but she can draw.

Sarah’s zines are more picture book than independent-doing-it-on-my-own punk publications. And instead, carefully picked moments avoid falling into copy-cat territory to bring back what you most loved about that scene, film, character, or most of the time, a detail you thought only you remembered.

Not only do her zines collate and collect, but they have an interesting sequence to them; no film by-numbers here.

I’ve treated myself to Sarah’s beautifully bound Lost in Translation zine as well as an undeniably cool watercolour print of Bill Murray as Raleigh St Clair from The Royal Tenenbaums.

What will you choose?

Artist Feachaaa: Lizzy Stewart

Lizzy Stewart first caught my dawdling eye when someone suggested I might like her online project Solo, a series of illustrated diary entry drawings.

London based, Edinburgh up and Paris and Berlin, treker – her entries are never boring. Still pausing on the mundane, frustrating and often difficult aspects of life, she approaches each with a humorous, almost reassuring eye; feelings we all feel, everyday.

And of course she loves cats, cakes and dancing like nobody is watching.

I couldn’t ask for much more.

Not only is she a dedicated diary doodler, she also has a jam-packed portfolio full of wonderful illustrations and projects; highlights for me include, Cardigan Heart and the Wuthering Heights series.

Arriving a little late to the Lizzy Stewart party I’ve only just got my hands on Solo Three, the published from screen to print, diary entries zine (one and two now completely sold out).

So what you waiting for? Dawdle, doodle or dance on over …
