Minimal Miju



I met Miju short after I moved to Barcelona through an exhibition at Duduá and I was blown away.

I don't really know how she does it, but in her drawings there is no noise, just peace. It's just her and her imaginary friends. It's so special and different from everything nowadays. When you meet her, you understand her illustrations are just an extension of her own personality.



Born in Busan (Korea), studied Product Design in Seoul and then moved to Barcelona to make a living out of her illustrations. She also has a trademark called Mee and Zoo where she sells handmade cushions from Busan.

And please, don't forget to check out her animated gifs.

Chronic Bitchface and Other Such Things!

This lady has been sitting pretty in my blogroll for a few years now, serving-up cute faces and colours that go pop. She's the illustrator who spoke-up about "chronic bitchface" (pictured below) and her fashion illustrations are my ticket into a world of lavender-tipped ponytails, and art that hangs on shoulders rather than walls.



Her sketchbooks are so freakin' lovely! Oh, and she goes by the name Kris Atomic.

Surreal Dreamy Drawings

From my latest discoveries, the beautiful surreal illustrations made by Katrin Berge are definitely one of my favorites, check the detail in each one of them, how inspiring and evocative they are, the magic that they transmit, every story told one line at a time finishes with a beautiful piece. If you are as amazed as I am you should take a look and fly through this wonderful source of inspiration.

She Will Not Rest

I want the passion and commitment of Sarah Watts. She has an obsession with illustration and swears that she'll do it forever or at least "until a shark eats her." It's obvious in her work how much she's done, on her website you'll find tons of illustrations created for posters, books and patterns (with and without drawn type). It's just endless really.



A former graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design, she spent years creating children images for a living, and then finally left the corporate world to pursue a full-time career as an independent illustrator. She illustrated her first book at the age of 23 for The Tilting House written by Tom Llewelyn (above).

While plenty of her commissioned work is in beautiful, vivid color, she'll mostly begin each one with a black and white drawing. Here's a glimpse into her sketchbook.

It's Like Candy

Flipping through an illustration book I received in the mail today, the handy work of Hennie Haworth got me to stop flipping. And then I immediately googled her name. Hennie creates intricate illustrations with her own unique and personal touch. I feel like a kid again when I see her lines and colorful layered compositions. I want to touch them and put them in my mouth. No really, look at those marbles.

Cut It Out

I love the whole cut out, diorama look. It works so well in sketchbooks, journals as well as finished pieces. I found Steve Simpson's work in a 3x3 illustration annual. Then I hunted him down on the internet and saw his Absolut campaign. This is inspiring me to do a diorama illustration project. Oh for more time!

Colorblind

Nikki Farquharson is experimenting with colored pens and found imagery in a collection of illustrations she calls Mixed Media Girls. It's impossible to ignore the visual impact when you see her use of color, patterns and doodles.

Also check out the work she did for Missbehave Magazine in collaboration with photographer Brooke Nipar.

Found via Nophar (a DA Facebook fan). Thanks for the tip!
