Affordable Art: You Sentimental Idiot

You Sentinmental Idiot  is a beautiful new project by Virginia-based artist Rikkianne Van Kirk of Chakra Pennywhistle. Inspired by found materials that have a past, antique diaries are the main medium, where she hopes to make the aged pages and forgotten words current with her illustrations. Some drawings are inspired by direct quotes from the diaries while others are what Rikkianne imagined the writer would have seen.  A collector and lover of folk art and all things with history, I am most especially loving her pieces inspired by the late Margaret Kilgallen.  See more of these original drawings at her shop here and at Poppytalk Handmade here.
