Female sexuality is not the easiest thing to depict in illustration but Polly Nor does a great job doing that. This London-based artist chose a bold and daring style to express her thoughts on modern ladies and their sexuality by drawing girls and their demons in various situations. She uses bright colors and "flat" style to create a cartoonish feel, but her sometimes dark and unsettling themes prove that these works are not for kids.

Fittingly for a 21st-century artist, she gets many of her ideas from funny texts, angry tweets, memes, and selfies. Her inspiration? "Frustration, anxiety and sadness," - says the illustrator. It's no wonder that the internet fell in love with her humorous and open drawings.

With her popularity growing every day, I think it's about time you all met this incredible and unique artist.

The demon inside is taking off their masks, the ones they wear to hide themselves inside. I think it's referring to how humans put on many different faces (whether makeup or personality) to change themselves.

Embracing your demon, accepting them and being aware they are there, but at the same time telling them they're not in charge.

The girl is there looking at her body, seemingly confident but the demon is there, her inner demon, to remind her that she is "not pretty" and "not up to societies standards".

Potential hot date, put the demon back on the shelf so as to not scare the new guy.

I love this one! So joyful- much more The Peaceful Kingdom meets The Garden of Earthly Delights (sans the horror of "sin" - Hieronymus Bosch was a disturbed and guilt ridden sod).
