Childhood Novelties

I can't get enough of these bold illustrations by Amanda Lanzone. The list of magazines she has contributed runs long and it's easy to see why when she manages to convey so much mood and story-telling in a few clean lines. I'm most enamored with her more quirky and colorful pieces which make me want to dangle a dozen charms from my cell phone (is there even a hook for that anymore...?) and wear a leather jacket with a tulle skirt.
