We were shocked and dismayed to hear that painter and illustrator Kiersten Essenpreis was having difficulty with her right hand, the magical tool that allows her to create some of our favourite work.

We wish her all the best because she needs to keep her tidily quirky scenes coming (go to youfail.com for more). See the rest of the week at Art MoCo after the jump.
