You can stumble upon some of the best illustrations in newspapers, especially the Boston Globe. A few days ago, while reading this article, I came upon a drawing I liked and started to do a little research. That's when I found out about Kim Rosen.
Kim is both a FIT and SCAD grad, soon to release limited edition wallets for Poketo (I love all of the current wallets on their site, you have to see them) and funky lamps for Moody Buddha (they make art lamps with work from your favorite artist). The drawing below of the lady peeking from behind her book with that moody dark wallpaper is one of my favorites.
I'm intrigued by her color combinations, expressions of her characters, and the many details she layers into her work. Kim is represented by Anna Goodson, where you can find her complete portfolio and view those of many talented others to browse.
