When I first saw Elizabeth Soule's work on Etsy, I remember calling out to my husband "Come look at this stuff! This girl photographs toy animals!" I though it was so smart. Later that year, I saw Elizabeth at Unique LA and ran up to her like a blubbering fool to profess my love. She was very gracious and I guess I didn't freak her out too much, because we became fast friends. Elizabeth is not only talented, but she is pee-in-your-pants funny, and funny is the key to my heart.
After many shared plates of pan fried noodles and crackerjack shrimp, we thought it would be fun to photograph two of the same animals. So we both went in search of a lion and a tiger (toys for her, real live for me) and behold, here they are!
