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.
