Amalfi Coast memory

I just came across some old photos of the summer I spent in Italy, and felt inspired to draw this:
I really miss living in Italy.

Lauren, I can see why you miss living in Italy! What a wonderful drawing. Even with all the tiny details, there is so much liveliness in your drawing. How long does it take you to do something like this -- every window, every brick?

cozy cozy. i'd like to visit there.

i framed buffalos and they are hanging in the new apartment!


Lauren Castillo said...

Thank you Elizabeth :)

Julia, your Silke is hanging on my wall as well--her coat matches my pale blue walls perfectly!

Lauren said...

Congrats on all your successes! This image allows the viewer to feel your fondness of Italy, while also bringing them there. I studied abroad in Spain, and know the feeling.

I've never been to Italy, but just looking at these drawings makes me want to buy a plane ticket! :-)

Hi Lauren! I own Lucky Luxe (, a wedding stationery shop, and I have a sort of strange question about your gorgeous illustration of Amalfi. Could you shoot me an email at your very earliest convenience to erin{at} I'm working on a project and would like to use your artwork if possible. :) Thanks so much, sugar!
