Illustration: Kelly Smith
And miss Kelly Smith has done it again, to my great disbelief, here is a second portrait of me!
Someone pinch me!
You can't possibly imagine how speechless and deeply flattered I am right know.
My dear Kelly, a thousand times thank you.
I grow fonder and fonder of you every day.
(i know that sounds weird, but don't worry Kelly, I am not a crazy lady either!)
I don't think I could ever say it enough, but this incredible artist is a gift.
Her heavenly hand has produced what are quickly becoming some of my all time favorite illustrations.
Her pencil stroke is the most delicat I have ever laid eyes on.
And once again, I cannot stress how infatuated I am with the fairness and beauty of her divine drawings.
If you are not yet acquainted with her pretty pencil ladies, you definitely need to be.
I'm sure that soon enough, you'll all find yourselves craving some Kelly Smith to hang in your own homes.
I find myself wanting to fly to Melbourne more than ever now for the opening of her show, A Tale Of Two Kellys, on the 27th of May, meet the enchanting lady behind all this loveliness, see all the pretty things she has in store for us.
So if you are lucky enough to be in that area, around that time, once again, you have absolutely no excuse not to go soak up some sweetness.
