the artiste

this is my best friend, rachael. she's featured in the august 2010 issue of FLARE!

THE ARTISTE: Rachael Meckling Hometown: Saskatoon, Sask. Illustrator Rachael Mecling, 20, may still be a student at Ryerson University but this FLARE intern's whimsical drawings are already hanging on our art director's walls - fitting, considering Meckling herself dreams of becoming an art director one day. Idols: "Gwen Stefani. She is such a novelty and I love how literal her style inspirations are. Also, Coco Chanel, Virginia Woolf and my mother - the obstacles that they overcame in their lives gives me the [motivation] to work just as hard." Words to live by: "It's unfortunate that some people search high and low for something that can be so obvious," says Meckling before citing Aristotle's famous quote: "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
