I stumbled upon the ETSY shop of Caitlin Kuhwald Illustration this weekend and was instantly in love. Her style is the perfect combination of weird and real and cartoon and cute.
I can't quite place my finger on it, but her work seems familiar and I feel like there was a book I loved as a kid that was maybe done in the same style. I wish I could have a Google in my brain so I could pull up things like that - random books I loved when I was 7.
