How can someone so young/ Sing words so sad?

"Laura Marling," The New Yorker, June 23, 2008

Here's a portrait of Laura Marling, an 18 year-old singer-songwriter from England. The third sketch was chosen but I was asked to give her the more up-to-date pixie haircut. Comparing that sketch with final looks a bit like hair salon's "before and after" shots.

Read "Young Folk" by Sasha Frere-Jones here.


Laura Marling- "New Romantic"

This week's issue of The New Yorker also features my pixelated pal, Tomby! Together again for the first time!

Just saw it myself! Looks good! And the Jashar/Tomby 1-2 punch is deadly. Gave me warm fuzzies.
