"camomile tea" by kristal melson

Today we are featuring the first of two illustrations created by Kristal Raelene Melson. When we first viewed "The Sugar In Your Tea, In My Camomile Dreams" we were so totally smitten. A gorgeous sleepy girl, a perfect stack of vintage tea cups, swans, birds and a wee little putty cat, how could we not fall in love with Kristals beautifully sweet and delicate style!

Name: Kristal Raelene Melson
Location: Singapore

About Kristal: From the throes of the teeming streets of Singapore, Kristal Melson breathes and sleeps sweet escape with pencils and paint brushes. She prances around in fleeting sprites of sketches about cats, girls and tea.
My Illustration is about Dreaming and speaking of impossible juxtapositions - inspiring you to do the same, dreaming wistfully away. "The Sugar In Your Tea, In My Camomile Dreams" invites you to tiptoe across love-letters in the quiet of the night.
I love being an illustrator because putting pencil to paper keeps me happy.
I am excited about this project because letterpress is a quaint and beautiful craft!

  1. Hi guys! Have just posted my blog entry to support your Giveaway of all Giveaways - but wanted to say 'Well done' for taking the time and effort to seek out and support new artists. I imagine opportunities like this would not come up very often.

  2. Hi Alischa,
    I biased but this is my favourite illustration...but they are all magical and kept me entertained for a very long time when you first put them on your website.

  3. Hello, I absolutely adore your site and I just had to leave a note for you to say so !
