I recently stumbled upon the most whimsical drawings that I ended up staring at for quite some time. Charmed by this mythical, friendly looking figure I discovered these charcoal illustrations are part of a narrative series by Mexico City based artist David Álvarez. It’s called I Dreamed I Was the Night and follows this being – the night – wandering through the country side and contemplating its surroundings. So magical!
With countless colors and details to absorb, artist Sofia Moore paints magical worlds that I would love to get lost in. Her beautiful work leaves me curious about the delightful characters she portrays, blending into their surroundings so perfectly. And those little white paintings on their dresses and wings.. love!
I can’t believe it has been more than more than a month since I last posted something. So much happened in the last weeks of the year and after that horrible and exhausting Instagram hack I have been putting all my time in my pottery for a little while, which felt good. But opening my computer and writing these words feels even better<3 Happy to be back!
Here’s to new beginnings! I just set up a brand new Instagram account. New name, same art love. You’ll find it here.
Extra note: even though I got hacked (and yes, that’s something that happens these days and yes it’s scary) It’s not my intention at all to leave you scared that something similar will happen to you. As you will read in the story below I did a very, very stupid thing that caused the hack. Also, to keep your account save, have a look at these Instagram guidelines.
It’s been eleven days since it happened. And after quite a stressful period of sending emails, doing research and stalking Instagram I think it’s time to face the music: ArtisticMoods’ Instagram account got hacked and I don’t think it’s coming back. Oops.
Latest illustration crush: rich and colorful collages by award winning artist and illustrator Martin Haake. With so much happening in each of these beautiful pieces, Martin’s work tells little stories and surprise me with details the longer I look at them. The birdwatcher in the first image is my favorite!
