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!
Cups, plates and dishes, embellished with all kinds of animals and botanicals in blue. Aren’t Becca Jane Koehler’s ceramics gorgeous? I’m so in love with the playful and whimsical style of her illustrations! Each of them seems to perfectly fit the ceramic piece it’s applied on.
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!
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!
