hello! are you familiar with French graffiti artist and illustrator fafi?
i discovered her gorgeous sassy fafinettes and dreamworld years ago and it was love at first sight. i love all of her characters. they exude such confidence, sexiness, and overall fun.
apparently she also just came out with her first graphic novel, The Carmine Vault, which is officially on my Christmas list. she doesn't do many exhibits anymore, but she is known worldwide, and I'd love to meet her in person. too bad I just missed her book tour!
she started out illegally spray painting and "tagging" local areas. aren't her illustrations amazing and inspiring? i love the playfulness and straightforwardness of her fafinettes. her and her husband both do graffiti together. talk about romance! check out her blog over here.
