Esther Pearl Watson

I love these paintings by Esther Pearl Watson! Growing up, her father liked to build huge flying saucers out of scrap metal and car engines, and now her father’s hobby lives on in her work. I have always loved the idea of Calvin and Hobbes in that, Calvin is the only one who sees Hobbes as a living tiger. These paintings capture that same kind of thing – giant scraps of metal from one point of view, and yet hovering all around town from another.

  • is she from texas? I love these

  • I love these so much. <3
    There’s something about the last one in particular that makes me so so happy.

  • Esther’s work is so fantastic! There are so little intricate fun details to look at and such a great story behind each piece. Her “Unlovables” comic is really great too!

  • These are really lovely! So fun to look at with all of their little details.

  • one of my favorite painter
