Lisa Congdon | Artist & Illustrator
One of the reasons why I started blogging and decided to keep doing so has a lot do with the satisfaction of discovering and sharing. I get excited about many things, and finding awesome people that inspire me is one of them. This week is Lisa Congdon. This super cool and positive woman came to me through a book called "Whatever You Are, Be a Good One" (100 Inspirational Quotations Hand-Lettered by Lisa Congdon) I found her book at Target and thought Hmm...I might keep this.. and so I did! Her selection of quotes was excellent, and her style was so different and eclectic.. Something I haven't seen much of lately. When I looked her up, I found out she is actually a big deal! Her clients range from MOMA!!!, Harvard University!!!, The Land of Nod, Martha Stewart Living, I mean.. BIG DEAL! and her website is so cute full of random illustrations on the corners, just full of life. Turns out she had a late start in art, which I found surprising considering how young she looks! but oh well! Didn't matter to her, she is super successful and full of life. Her work is bright, fun and so friendly! She has a shop online, books, wallpaper, gift wrap, prints, and a ton more... Make sure to check her out and read her blog. I read a couple of her posts, and I just love how honest and humble she sounds. She is inspiring in many ways.
