There’s something about the magical works of artist Xuan Loc Xuan that keeps me staring at her pieces forever. Often surrounded by nature and the magic of the night, her works portray the most beautiful characters that make me curious to know more about them.
I have a weak spot for these colorful, magical illustrations by Chi Michalski. Aren’t they the cutest? Playful shapes combined with surprising details, these adorable characters come from a place that I would just looove to visit. The pieces from her Spaghetti Girls series, in which different aspects of girls’ everyday life are explored, are my favorites!
When I opened my blog this morning I realized that I was still enjoying the late summer sun in the garden at the time of writing my last post. I can’t believe that it’s been more than a month since I shared my last update and I’m so happy to be back! ArtisticMoods had a little blog break. I decided to do this so I could spend more time on my ceramics, which I felt needed more of my devotion after a year in which so much has happened. I was a bit nervous about the break, but I must say: I’m glad that I did it.
Before I start sharing art I love again, here’s an update on what I’ve been doing in my blog break:
A wile ago I stumbled upon a quirky pair of Yayoi Toesamas that made me giggle pretty hard. Then I discovered Virginia Wool, Frida Calus, Sole-Adore Dali and other wonderfully designed socks by the England based brand called ChattyFeet. Artists, scientists, divas and many more characters that will keep your feet warm and lift you up every time you put your eyes down. I’ve got my eye on the artist sock set!
Using different collage techniques and colored pencils, Illustrator Aura creates colorful portraits and cozy fragments in which I wouldn’t mind spending an afternoon or two. I love how the shapes in her work revel different structures, and how all the playful details fit together so harmoniously. The lady on the sofa in the second image is my favorite!
