SUPER FUN BABE ALERT! Today we have Sara M. Lyons - artist, illustrator, product designer, magic girl, muralist, cute weirdo - and she is an absolute crafty ass female to the MAX! Her hair, her vibe, her talent, and her Instagram presence are so kitschy + fresh and we couldn’t be happier to share her with you!
Sara M. Lyons starts off by telling A + K what the ‘M’ stands for in her name, and then goes into the backstory of her creativity from making art with her mom to the fashion blog she expressed herself on to losing her office job to her Tumblr posts gaining traction to slowly developing an online business.
Sara started cutting out stickers on her couch and has developed her creative career in such a way where she has worked with brands like Urban Decay and illustrated a pop-up book on periods + vaginas! UHHH-MAZING!
Sara also opens up to Amanda + Kristin about how she responds to blatant plagiarism and has learned that she needs to choose which battles she will fight and which she will let go of.
