Earthly Mission

Hilarious Collage Illustrations by Melissa Grimes

Melissa Grimes is a professional artist and illustrator in Austin, Texas, USA. She lives in a very old house full of her collections of vintage ephemera: old books, magazines, toys and old printed matter of all kinds. See some of “greatest hits” of her work below. I need the car on the first image for my earthly wanders, and the hamburger too.
