What’s On Your Wall?: Molly Snee, Illustrator

Welcome to What’s On Your Wall?, an ongoing series exploring the studio walls of the artists who inspire us.

Molly Snee lives in an A-frame green house in Idaho (not to be confused with a greenhouse, as she takes care to note on her website), where we’re pretty sure the idyllic view from her windows beats anything we can find in New York City. This Ketchum-based illustrator has a knack for stunningly simple, witty, and painterly work, whether it’s the visual idenity for an innovative Brooklyn bakery or a winking Hemingway for an adventurous magazine. But what we appreciate the most about this week’s What’s On Your Wall is Molly’s ability to stuff so much inspiration into the small space of a corner bookshelf – and we invite you to take a look below:
