Show + Tell: Jen Skelley

It’s time for Show + Tell again!

For today’s share, I went to my tried and true list of artists from Naive Modernism. I actually had a hard time choosing-limiting-the examples of Jen Skelley, an illustrator from Eastern Massachusetts. She is one of the many illustrator’s out there who inspires me to draw more.

For obvious reasons it was her birds that caught my eye*.

But once I did some further research on Jen, I found she has a large variety of illustrations subjects. Her Etsy shop is full of prints of birds, bears, cats, drop caps, tea cups and houses, as well as t-shirts with her floral illustrations.

In her professional career she has the to opportunity to design clear stamps, gig posters for bands such as Death Cab for Cutie, ands cards for Border’s Bookstore and other outlets.
