Hi! I'm: Esther @EstherLovesYou
I'm a: Illustrator/Designer
I'm a: Libra
I live in: warm, sunny, southern California
My fav spot in LA is: this amazing restaurant that my friend took me to when they picked me up from the airport called My Two Cents - it's a super delicious new American southern food spot and they have an awesome playlist. Love it. Opening Ceremony always restores my faith in fashion.
A brand I'm really diggin right now is: Toga Pulla! I really want some cute boots from them. Oh and I'm super into Ashley Williams, her clothes are so cute!
I think the babe with the best style is: The Mizuhara sisters - they have such quirky, cute taste in everything.
Songs I can't get out of my head today is: I love k-pop so CALL ME BABY by EXO, Brdg by Zion T-Yanghwa, Sometimes by Crush.. Sorry, cheating more than one :)
What inspired her to start:
I remember being really blown away when I first found out about Fafi. I like how she didn't cater to the boys and made really girly art. Now there are a lot of girly illustrators but when she came out it felt really empowering to me.
Her advice to you:
I think it's important to be mentally tough and not to compare yourself to others. There are all kinds of artists and markets and demographics - figure out what makes you special and really work on that aspect of your work.
