lucy engelman

by Grace Bonney

We’re heading back to Portland this weekend to start the West Coast leg of the book tour, and these drawings remind me of my summer there. I love the way Lucy Engelman’s watercolor illustrations feel like the last remnants of summer walks through the forest. Each one is like a tiny world trapped in glass. When my black thumb eventually creeps in and kills my summer terrariums, these illustrations are a great way to keep the feel of greenery going. You can check out more of Lucy’s illustrations online right here or shop her collection at Etsy here. xo, grace

*Lucy’s hybrid drawings (below) are beautiful, too.
