We are hopping into strangers’ cars (Lyft, Sidecar, Uber), welcoming them into our spare rooms (Airbnb), dropping our dogs off at their houses (DogVacay, Rover), and eating food in their dining rooms (Feastly). We are letting them rent our cars (RelayRides, Getaround), our boats (Boatbound), our houses (HomeAway), and our power tools (Zilok). We are entrusting complete strangers with our most valuable possessions, our personal experiences—and our very lives. In the process, we are entering a new era of Internet-enabled intimacy.

I discovered Leah Dungo on Society6 when I bought her New Jersey print to cover my phone. I started to explore her artist profile and came across her relatively new but rather prolific blog and developed a girl crush on this intrepid upstart. I reached out to her to see if I could learn more about the artist, whose designs are carefully constructed but still manage to be whimsical. She obliged, of course.
