Portland artist and illustrator Nicole J. Georges creates beautiful, whimsical images in many forms. You can find her work within the pages of books, zines, calendars, and on the walls of homes and businesses. Her subjects vary, but I am especially a fan of her custom pet portraits. Working from photographs, Ms. Georges creates ink drawings or full color paintings of all kinds of creatures. Go here for more on Nicole and her art. I’m saving up for a day when she can paint my animal friends.
