Q & A With Artist Elizabeth Graeber

Illustration extraordinaire Elizabeth Graeber answered a few of my questions about her fun, light hearted artwork!

“I have always like to draw and paint, my style may have changed some over the years but is mostly the same. Materials I use are pen, ink, watercolor and gouache.”

 

Elizabeth first got involved with creating artist magazines because, she “thought it was a fun and different way to show work. I also like collaborating with writers and this is a good way to work together.” Her newest creation (image below) is “A nostalgic zine dedicated to the clothing, accessories, and otherwise inanimate objects that bare witness to and shape certain portions of our lives.” Click here to read more.

What is the most popular item that you sold on Etsy? And what/when made you decide to open up your Etsy shop? “The most popular items I’ve sold are a cocktail book and a book about pie. I decided to open my shop a few years ago because I like making things and thought it would be a good way to sell my work.”
