Welcome to the wonderful world of Jill Carnes, where owls play piano, elephants take over the big box stores, and cats would be kings, except it’s a democracy, so they are mayors.
We love Jill and we love her art and we are so very happy to share that Jill Carnes has signed on with us to make a Very Good Puzzle!
Her designs are so very rich with color, pattern, and invention. Jill's paintings and drawings have graced record album covers for Neutral Milk Hotel, The Jody Grind, and Victoria Williams, the walls of hundreds of humans and other species, and the book cover for John Keane’s Musician’s Guide to Pro Tools.
This is exciting for us because her work has been exhibited in Athens, Asheville, Atlanta, Austin, and New York City, and in publications such as Rolling Stone, Cream, and Spin. She also sings and performs as Thimble Circus, with every melodious bell and whistle you can imagine, including a toy piano and a trombone kazoo.
Thanks Jill - for sharing your art with us and the world!
