Using all kinds of playful shapes and soft colors, Illustrator Ilka Mészely creates the most lovely and quirky little personages that are an absolute delight to look at. So fun and inspiring.. they make me want to get out my pencils and draw for the rest of the day! These face illustrations are part of a recent project by Ilka which she has been sharing on Instagram. And if you haven’t seen them yet, have a peek at these folks which she created some time ago. Love!
You can find a selection of Ilka’s work available on print in her Etsy shop.

It’s the dazzling color combinations and the beautiful expressive eyes on these ladies that kept me staring at Bijou Karman’s portraits for a long, long time. Aren’t these gorgeous?

Have you visited the Instagram account of illustrator Clare Youngs? If not, I’d strongly recommend you to have a peek and absorb the many lovely, colorful animals you’ll encounter there. All created with tiny bits of paper that are filled with beautiful, playful patterns. The monkey is my favorite!
My latest ceramics crush: cups, bowls and plates from the supersweet Pinkish collection by Studio Noot & Zo. All handmade by ceramist Suus Notenboom and covered with a home designed glaze that looks so delightful and yummy I want to lick it!
Meanwhile at The Pottery Parade: I’ve been working on some new clay characters and I’m quite pleased with how most of them came out of the kiln last week. Scroll down below to see a selection of my latest creations!
I’ll keep this update short. One thing I do want to mention I that I have been spending a lot more time at Studio Noot & Zo these last few weeks and it’s to be expected that there will be more shop updates than usual in the next months. Although I’m still experimenting a lot, I feel like I am moving towards a structure and style more and more, which feels great!
The pots below are now sold. Follow the Pottery Parade on Instagram to find out when the next shop update will be!
