May Lee, Autumn and Winter Illustrator

Mountain Hiking (detail)

So many of May Lee‘s artworks have an Autumn feel that I think of her as the Autumn Illustrator, but she identifies herself as a “winter enthusiast”, haha. She lives in France.

Her illustrations have such a nice, homey feeling – depicting odd subjects like anthropomorphic cat witches and people wearing animal masks, but in such lovely natural and domestic settings that it all feels like a hot cup of coffee with cookies.

Contributing to the homey feeling is that May Lee has a familiar set of characters that appear across her artworks. In fact, she has plans to have a webcomic, so I’m excited about that.

And can I just say… she would do a fantastic job with a Nature-based Google Doodle, especially for the solstices and equinoxes!

It’s so hard to choose just a few favorites, but here are my faves below. Please see the bottom of the post for more links and ways to support May Lee.
