Australian artist Lauren Carney – aka Instagram’s dizzylittledotty aka cartoon girl turned real life – clearly doesn’t take herself too seriously. Or life. In fact, she draws ridiculous, fun and cute things all over both of them.
Why accept real life when you have a pen, a (very) active imagination and a love for photo mashups? No wonder Lauren has over 20k followers on Instagram, queuing to escape their own minds and have a jaunt round her bright, colourful and endlessly hopeful one.
Here, we’ve collected our favourites of Lauren’s colour-pop, dreamy digital arts –whether it’s her being treated by an oddly loveable skeletal doctor, or hiding among illustrated leaves, Laurens illustrations tickle that cute spot.
On her blog, Lauren says “it took nearly a decade and a love affair with snapchat for me to realise how much I enjoy drawing ridiculous things all over my mug. I feel I don’t live in the real world anyway, so I want to give you an insight colourful mine really is.”
