Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. An insight from Clever illustrator Sarah Pook.
Posted on 20 May 2014
Today I am blogging about an Illustrator and Graphic Designer whos creative imagination often inspires me to push yourself beyond comfortable and never encase your imagination in the “Norm” box because the results are so unique and beautiful!
The creative behind Little Quarters is, Illustrator and designer, Sarah Pook.
I love pretty things as you can tell from my tropical range and I was immediately drawn to Sarahs illustrations due to the mystical fine detail and use of opposing themes.
Her illustrations are unique to me because they combine a dark concept with something light and pretty. Her images are whimsical but edgy at the same time which is a difficult balance to achieve and Sarah does this amazingly.
Sarah works predominantly from her Melbourne studio with her little studio side kick Perro who also features in her work occasionally
Her designs include pairing Pineapples, monsteria and skulls, inquisitive characters and feathers.
As well as working for prominent street wear companies Sarah also Freelances and does commission pieces.
I asked sarah what her mantra is and she said,
There is one quote I find empowers me, I have it framed and up in my studio, and read it every day
A bower bird by nature, Sarah is a collector and surrounds herself with many beautiful things often found on her travels and so she tries to create that very thing she searches for, for others to collect.

Little Quarters will be featuring at The Finders keepers Market in Melbourne 25th of July so go say Hi and check out her amazing illustrations!
