Love these colors, would like to see them together on a wall.

featuredbannerHi!!!

Sorry I’ve been M.I.A lately (again) life has been supremely busy. How do bloggers blog daily anyhow?
The days have been escaping me!

Anyhow, getting into today’s feature. I came across an artist who does work that has really inspired me. I have been chipping away at playing with paper and cuts outs over the years in my art practice, and so finding an artist who takes that method to a whole other level was very exciting!

EOjalaEiko Ojala is an artist, illustrator, and designer who lives and works in Estonia. What is really cool about his work as a designer is that works mostly digitally but draws everything by hand, which also how I work when I am designing for Double Dare Print Studio!

Reminds me of House of Cards.

Featured Artist: Eero Lampinen

Love this!

featuredbannerHI!

Today’s feature is a really great illustrator I came across online! Eero Lampinen is an artist and graphic designer based in Finland. He uses a combination of his hand drawn illustrational skills with digital technology to create some really fascinating work.

LampinenFirst of all, the colours and textures he injects into his work are stunning. I am so inspired by the pale pinks and greens, combined with a dash of bright red. Like all of his work, there is a narrative happening here. I tend to turn to words to inject narrative into my own illustrations, but I love how open this piece is. It allows space for the imagination to roam. This is the first of Eero’s work that came accross, and it certainly grabbed my attention.

A lot of Eero’s work depicts children interacting with different types of environments. This work above seems to me, to be…
