Zukzuk Odd Bods

Here is an artist on Etsy I would love to introduce. I have her in my favorites section and always go back and stare at her variety of illustration and art she has listed. I am a big fan of portrait illustration and almost have a fascination with it. It reminds me of both a yearbook page and also that we are in this world together, not just alone as some single portraits reflect. Not that there is anything wrong with alone its where we get all our good inspiration and find time to read and reflect. I think if you go to Zukzuk's store which can by clicking on the illus. you will be pleasantly surprised at her work. Also I include her profile and feel that if she lived next door to me we would be friends... She says it best in her following profile which I took from her site,:
When I was reading a book to my son the other day, one of the characters, a Wombat, said that he liked to think and he liked to dig. I guess that's a bit like me. I too like to think and to dig, especially come summer, but then digging snow in the winter is good too...

Most of the time I'm pretty mesmerized by the world and by the people in it. The state we're all in today is a pretty stunning thing to contemplate if you have five minutes! When I'm not digging I love to spend as much time as possible near trees and to travel (my family is still wondering when I will find my way back home to New Zealand). I like being involved in community activism, riding my bike, spending time on my own (rarely happens) and reading. I spend too much time in front of the computer and eat an inordinate amount of dark chocolate each day. I'm very personable so please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions about my work or just want to say hello.

Hello there Marianne,

I'm honoured to be featured on your blog, thanks! I'm always very interested to see which images resonate with different people as my work is a bit of an eclectic mish mash!

Take care and have a most excellent day!
