Chelsea Hipley - I was in New York for the holidays and couldn’t get enough of all the textures and tiles in the subways. Some of the old stations were so beautiful and rich with history. Made me wonder what it would have been like to see them when they were new.

Erik Larson - I love to overlay textures and patterns on to my illustrations.  I experiment and am always really happy with how it turns out. Let that creativity fly.
