I haven't done an art post here in a while because although I spend most of my waking hours immersing myself in it, my tumblr has become the place where I curate all the art that inspires me: mainly in the form of illustrations, photography, and architecture. In fact it was on tumblr that I came across these, and I was so taken by them that I just had to share them here too. As most of you probably know, Rooney Mara is one of my favourite actresses and a publication I've just discovered, called Little White Lies, came out with a Carol issue not too long ago. These beautiful pieces were drawn to accompany an interview with Rooney in the magazine, unfortunately I can't seem to find the name of the artist who did them but I've just ordered a copy of the mag so hopefully I'll be able to locate his/her name in print and update it here. Each illustration depicts a character she plays in a film and from stealing my heart the first moment I saw her act as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, then breaking it to pieces in Ain't Them Bodies Saints, to making me question the future in Her, and finally to giving me the most beautiful two hours I could ever ask for in my favourite film of last year, Carol, I adore the style of these artworks so much. The pastel colour palette is just so pretty and although the lines are clean, simple and not all too detailed, you can really identify each character, and you can definitely tell that they're all Rooney.

Little White Lies 62: The Carol Issue came out in November but can still be purchased here. I'm not sure whether you can get this magazine anywhere else if not online but I've just had a little browse of their site and I'd definitely be interested in a subscription (the Crimson Peak issue looks well lush). Would you guys be interested in seeing more of these art posts on Adventures of an Anglophile or should I just keep them on tumblr?
