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.

There is so much to discover in these wonderful, magical illustrations by artist Lidia Tomashevskaya. Colors, details, patterns and characters that make me curious about what’s hiding behind their beautiful big eyes..
Lidia Tomashevskaya is a freelance illustrator who was born in Saint Petersburg and studied design in Tel Aviv, where she currently lives. Inspired by Russian folk art and her own past experiences, Lidia’s illustrations often have a strong narrative style and a slightly melancholic touch. The animals she includes in her works are sometimes used as symbols: birds as freedom, wolf as depression and anxiety, and fox as soul.
