There’s something about Sylvia Takken‘s gorgeous illustrations that makes me long for summer so much.. Beautiful botanicals, playful details and soft pastel colors that bring along such a pleasant atmosphere.. love!
Playful splashes of paint, lots of ink and paper cut details.. Michele Moore creates one of a kind patterns and designs that are an absolute delight for the eye. I love how she experiments with different materials and colors, and how many of her surprising combinations result into beautiful imagery that pops off the paper.
Starting of the week with a healthy dose of color is always a good idea. Even more so if they look as lush as in these delightful patterns by Markovka. There’s so much to spot in these lovely creations! And although the patterns on themselves all have a theme, Markovka’s work is super diverse. I love the ones with pastel colors, which have a bit of a vintage vibe <3
These playful patterns by Sabina Alcaraz make me want to get out my markers and draw right away. Flowers, leaves and any other botanicals-inspired details that come to mind. I found these lovely images on Sabina’s Instagram where she shares a whole bunch of patterns that are all so colorful, cheerful and diverse!
From her studio in New Orleans, Juliet Meeks creates vibrant paintings and patterns that don’t shy away from color at all. Love the fresh floras and the playful little dots and details in her work. And that fox pouch.. so adorable!
Juliet gets inspired by vintage textiles and the organic shapes of nature. Her lovely designs appear on prints, pouches and other textiles, and are available as original paintings too.
We’re starting of the week with a dose of color and pattern by Philadelphia based illustrator Molly Egan. Aren’t these lovely? Inspired by folk art and vintage textiles, Molly started a 100 day challence in which she added a gorgeous new pattern to a little sketchbook every day. The results are so refreshing and fun to look at and they make me want to draw so badly right now! Molly recently finished the project and you can find all the results listed together on this page.
You will find many more ilustrations on Molly’s super inspiring Instagram and website. And: if you purchase anything from her shop between August 7 and August 11, make sure to use the code ARTISTICMOODS for a 20% discount!
