Well, this is adorable. British illustrator Nina Cosford has acquired quite a love for Girls, so in her spare time between freelance gigs and creating her own books, she made a Tumblr dedicated to the HBO series. It's called Girls Illustrated and replicates some of the show's main characters and iconic spots in drawings.
Cosford took a little time to tell us about her new project: "A big fan of Lena Dunham's show, I feel an eagerness to share its witty, gritty and painfully relatable content with an audience who is either already familiar with it or who has not yet discovered it. As an English viewer, I find the raw perspective of young life in Brooklyn/NY really refreshing, and so different to previous perceptions I may have had of it. I think the style of my illustrations sets a sort of contrast to this and helps to highlight the softer, more charming elements of the show: its characters, their interactions and their great misadventures."
