Pastel colors and paper crafting; two of my very favorite things combined in these wonderful illustrations by Ida Kortelainen. Using colorful bits of painted paper, she creates collages that are rich of cute little details and character (and I know it’s still August but some of these pieces are making me long for some winter coziness!).
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!
Please excuse the image overload in today’s blogpost. There’s so much happening in these super fascinating collages by Luyi Wang that I was very tempted to share her entire portfolio with you all! In a gorgeous, playful style, each of Luyi’s pieces tells a story on its own and it’s this kind of imagery that triggers my imagination so much..
Susanna Sundman, aka Sussuni, was one of the first artists whose lovely work I shared on this blog five years ago. And I still enjoy her dreamy, soft colored creatures so so much! Originally from Sweden and currently based in France, Susanna Sundman is a mixed media artist who uses her love for nature and her imagination to create magical characters of all kinds. Her illustrations include lots of whimsical details which together become harmonious collages of worlds I would love to visit <3
My latest crush: stunning, one of a kind collages by artist Ani Cuenca. Made out of lots of different materials such as ink, paint and paper and applied on large wooden panels. If you look at her beautiful work carefully, you will notice how the attached pieces fluently fall over each other, adding an extra dimension to her carefully constructed pieces. Love!
