Tracey Long is an freelance illustrator and artist from Hereford, England. In her Etsy profile, Tracey states she’s inspired by “words, stories, poems and very tall tall tales” — which makes sense, as the characters in her pencil and watercolor illustrations all look like they’re right smack in the middle of some kind of wonderful story.

You can see more of Tracey’s work on her site and in her Etsy shop.
