New illustrations by Emily Martin
Painter, illustrator, and author Emily Martin builds worlds around portraits of young girls and baby-faced animals. But like Alice’s Wonderland, there’s as much haunting eeriness as innocence in her work. Her art’s time-stopping calmness means that if you gander too long, you risk getting lost (perhaps happily) in the little odd landscapes where her characters reside. Martin’s latest big news is Oddfellow’s Orphanage, a children’s novel.
