Yeah, I don’t paint that well, but I do love this quote from John Green’s book : The Fault in our Stars. Thought I’d get off the computer and make something of it!
I was lucky enough to work with the lovely + talented lady behind Paper Fashion, Katie, on her new blog design! We wanted to convey both her personality and illustration aesthetic into a happy little place where her work could live. Simplicity with flair.
Honestly, it was hard NOT to be inspired while working on this project … simply because I was surrounded by Katie’s gorgeous illustrations + glitter on a daily basis. She’s great at what she does, guys, and I couldn’t be more happy to know her! Now, I know you don’t want to read more, so check out the design LIVE, right here.
These illustrations by Rikka Sormunen are so simple, full of line drawings. But here’s the thing : there’s still plenty of details and layering to make them over the top, hands down, interesting pieces of work! I love everything from the subtle transparencies to all the FUN texture thrown in there. It’s definitely unique, right?? Check out more, here!
Such cool collaging + drawing techniques done by Eva Vermeiren. They’re purposefully chaotic, yet controlled with color. Speaking of color, how about that full page of coral? I have some serious love for that shade, so I couldn’t help but include it here!!
The illustration of Chris Silas Neal is plain old quirky. And fun. And colorful. I mean, I love the fact that the guy in the second image is completely upside down. You just never know what you’re going to get, and that’s what makes Chris’ work so exciting!
These photo collages by Christian Conlh make my heart so happy. Faded / foggy neutral toned photographs paired with BRIGHT and bold geometric shapes. It’s the kind of funky that I love and would totally hang on my walls.
I cannot get over Jing Wei’s textured illustrations. First and foremost : hello color!! Such pretty + muted palettes with pops of brightness here and there. And then how about the actual prints? A little bit of humor is always welcomed over here. I love these way too much.
I’ve been a massive fan of Becca Stadtlander for a good while now, ever since I started Moxee over a year ago. Her illustrative work is so whimsical and full of beautiful colors. Plus, there’s just a simple sweetness to her work that you can’t overlook. I hadn’t seen her latest work yet and was blown away when I checked back in. Cheers to you, Becca!
