Paula Bonet’s Girls

Behold, the crazy beautiful portraiture work of one Paula Bonet. I love the detailing of the girls’ hair. So pretty. I also need to frame up the one with the girl’s face half underwater. It kind of looks like the pages of a whimsical children’s book. Illustrations like these make me miss drawing.  I really need to pick up my pen again.

The Watercolourfic Illustrations of Chidi Wayne

Let’s add some watercolours to your Wednesday shall we.

Trendy is an illustrated fashion book filled with colourful illustrations by Chidi Wayne and Berto Martinez. This is some of Chidi’s work in the book. I’d love to see these on huge billboards!

Laura Carlin

Lookie, little hand painted animals! The cutest things. They’d make for great posters in nurseries or even in the living room. I’ve got my eye on the first one. Designed by Laura Carlin, little people, animals and buildings are all intricate and bathed in water colour goodness.

Jon Klassen

Jon Klassen’s work is both sharp and dreamy all at once. The softness of watercolour and the hard edged strong illustrations make for a fascinating combination. Love.

Ekaterina Koroleva

Based in Berlin, Ekaterina Koroleva’s fashion illustration is a dreamy mix of watercolour and pencil drawings. This is art that I would love to see hanging on the walls of an artsy cafe.
