Carson Ellis

Zelenoi

Zelenoi

 

To communicate both weighty (The Irish Famine, racism, war) and frivolous (clandestine love affairs with Bigfoot?) subject matter, Carson Ellis utilizes a subtle color palette and gentle linework. Her art is similar to children’s books in that the dialogue (if any) is limited, but the illustrations and their message speak volumes. And she’s married to Colin Meloy, the lead singer of The Decemberists!
