Cute, clever and just beautiful to look at a Hip Monster will dig the art from The Black Apple. Her work has a timeless quality yet is thoroughly in the now. Mostly portraits of young woman, her art has symbolism hiding in every brush stroke. A blend of big eye art, folk art and Symbolism a Black Apple painting is a work to be explored.
Squirrel Girl Print shown on the left at first seems simple, a girl dressed up as a squirrel. But soon questions begin to arise. Why does her poise seem defiant yet defeated? Was she forced to wear the costume or is it her defense against the world?
Bubblegum Betty, shown below, is one of our favorite pieces. A sassy young girl staring back at you using her bubble as a mask.

Surreal yet fun, Laura George’s work harks back to the vivid and fun imagery of the Seventies. From a fun loving sloth to a monster telling you not to panic the art is creative and playful, a good fit for any monster’s home.
There are lots of nice people to meet (shown left) is a great example of her work. Stylized faces stare out from the art each with there own distinct personality. From the boyish face looking far away to the woman who seems consumed in gloom, each face has a story to tell. This is true of all her work. They are snapshots from a still unfolding story which we are fortunate enough to catch a glimpse of.
