I am under the impression that beauty is not in the eye of the beholder, and this for the very simple reason that it is in the act of beholding (which requires something to behold). So often we are unaware of our surroundings, the beauty possible in the banal, the oddity found in the everyday. G.K. Chesterton once said, “The world will never starve for lack of wonders, but for lack of wonder.” I say, if curiosity killed the cat, then that cat died nobly.

    Hi Megan, I followed the link on your card to your wonderful site and thence to your blog, equally wonderful. I *love* your style of illustration and painting: it reminds me just a bit of the Krush’s illustrations of The Borrowers, which I have always loved for the spindley, overlapping lines, but your work has even more clarity and balance. I also love your photography.

    Thank you for the link, and for a fun dinner last night.

    • Hello Jasmine!
      Thank you for your encouraging words.
      We too had a great time with you guys. Hoping we can all hang out again!

      Best,
      Megan
