Julie Morstad’s Charming Illustrations

Julie Morstad’s work can be thought provoking, whimsical, fun and even psychological.  Simple lines, delicate depths and a great mix of colors make Julie’s illustrations all in all delightful, even charming. I would love to get my hands on one of her prints.

I hope you appreciate these lovely illustrations as much as we did:

A Collection of Amazing Portraits

Below is a collection of portraits. If you have any additional portrait illustrations/artworks that you feel we should add to the list please send me the link and perhaps we can add it to the collection!

Jacob Magraw-Mickelson – Deconstructed hyper-realities

Painting in Gouache, Jacob Magraw-Mickelson creates candy-coloured hyper-realities of deconstructed landscapes and flora, anatomical dissections, cross-sections of cells, veins, roots and hidden terrains. I love the detail and the pulsating colours and am happy to add it to our illustration blog.

Anna Emilia Laitinen – a delicate simplicity

Working from Finland Anna Emilia Laitinen’s paintings are truly delicate. I love the complexity and intricacy within the simple compositions.
