Laura Callaghan's Intricate Illustrations of Cool, Bookish Girls

For the most part, the girls Laura Callaghan draws are bookish metalheads, with beautifully bushy eyebrows and a penchant for patterns. Which makes them, dare we say, our kind of girls. Callaghan’s work, which we recently spotted over at It’s Nice That, is adorable and disturbing in equal measure, like an uneasy truce between sisters. She creates her cheeky illustrations and beautifully intricate patterns with watercolor, indian ink and “the smallest pens I can get my hands on,” which allow for each picture to be stuffed with tiny details that reward the close observer. After the jump, check out a few of our favorites of Callaghan’s work, and then be sure to head on over to her website for much more.
