Meet Kansas City-based artist and illustrator Sarah Walsh, the artist behind Walter Foster's Just Add Color: Circus, Just Add Color: Day of the Dead, and Just Add Color: Carnival. Sarah has designed typefaces, illustrated for various card lines, dabbled in animation, and designed surface pattern. Her current work as a freelance artist allows her to work on a variety of projects−from books to editorial to fine art to fabric. I had the chance to talk with Sarah about her work as an artist/ illustrator and the things that inspire her!
Enjoy a sneak peak into Fashion Design Lookbook coming out in October 2014!

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." ~ Aaron Siskind
Sometimes as artists we can use a little inspiration to try a new style, a new technique, or perhaps simply to step out into a new color scheme.

"There are two things you can never have too many of: good friends and good shoes."
"Doodling is a carefree, relaxing style of illustration that can add whimsy to your artwork. Repeating patterns can help convey a theme or jazz up an existing design, but they are also wonderful as standalone projects." -Stephanie Corfee
