Skinny la Minx

Here's a blog I know you'll like. Skinny la Minx is both the blog name and label of graphic design artist Heather Moore. Upon seeing her work, I fell in love at once.

Heather's images are versatile, whimsical and delightful. I'm also impressed by her use of cutouts in design. And by "cutout" I don't mean a filter in Photoshop. She actually cuts intricate designs out of paper, cork, and vinyl. How does she do it? I'd cut my thumb off!

Heather lives in Cape Town, South Africa, where her other work includes writing, illustration, and making wonderful t-shirts, magnets, pillows, badges, tea towels and trays that she sells in shops and at local markets. If one were to know how to start an import business, one would begin with Heather's goods (if one were I). (One would also perhaps contact her about logo design, if one were I.)

I find myself wanting to post more and more of her work just to show it to you. Instead I'll encourage you to check out her blog, and also her portfolio on warmtoast cafe.

Wow, LisaJay, I'm overwhelmed, flattered and delighted by this overload of kind words from you. It's just what I needed after a day attempting to deal with my downstairs neighbour who hates me and my husband for no reason at all! I really needed that, thanks a lot.

Oh, and I'm glad you saw that Gary had punted your blog on SprayGlue too!

I think her stuff is amazing. But I just don't understand how she does it. I mean how is it possible to do all that by hand?!
